I already have a 9.2 3DS, but I'm soon to get the Ambassador New 3DS. I don't have a Gateway, but as far as i can tell, thanks to the latest update I can still access some of the features without the card (emunand classic I believe is possible?). I'm stuck deciding what I should do with it, as I want to have my New 3DS have 9.4 sysnand with all my games, and use my old 3ds as a homebrew device. So, can I, create an emunand copy of my sysnand on my current 3ds, update that, then do a system transfer to the New 3DS, then downgrade my old 3ds to 4.5? Will this work, or will I encounter problems (i.e. no gateway)?

I know that gateway doesn't support new 3ds right now. I don't want to have anything on my new 3ds. The problem is that I need to do a system transfer from my old 3ds to the new 3ds, but that'll mean I have to update the old one and lose the ability to load homebrew.

Why would someone ever want sysnand 9.4? kudos for having all original games, but even then I wouldnt update to 9.4, I'd buy a Gateway, DG to 4.5 run emunand 9.4 and dump my legit games so I could have them all on one card.

I believe, if your emunand is the "fresh" copy of your system nand (emunand requires gateway red card to be in the card slot btw), you can then update your emunand, and initiate a system transfer.

In my situation- I had a 3DS XL at 9.2, which I wanted to downgrade, but to avoid all of the headaches of saves not working and confusion/possibly losing my Eshop purchases, I decided to buy a cheap 2DS to transfer my system to. So now I have a clean-slate downgraded 3DS XL, and a 2DS with my purchases and profile still intact.

OK, so consensus is it is technically possible but two questions:

  1. Do I need the gateway card? I read somewhere that I can do emuNAND classic without having the red card, but I'm not sure. I know the launcher works without it.
  2. Does creating emuNAND format the sd card? Once again I'm not really sure of how that works.

Shit, it just blackscreens :( Well I guess I'm gonna bite the bullet and update to 9.4 and wait for another exploit (not that that'll happen soon). Maybe I'll sell my 3DS and buy a 4.5 3ds...

Though I did make a backup of my nand via the launcher, so I guess I can find someone to flash it for me...

I haven't done it yet, but why not? I wanna transfer to my New 3DS, and I'm not gonna buy a gateway. It's not like I really need the hack, I just thought it would be nice. Plus I can always get someone to flash my nand backup onto my old 3ds if I do want it.
