    Sorry for multiposting, but this got buried in the noob question thread pretty quick and I didn't get a 100% certain response.

    I'm looking for the best way to play DSi and GBA games for Gateway owners who don't want to mess with custom firmwares.

    This is my setup:
    O3DS, 9.2 SysNAND, 9.9 EmuNAND, Gateway launcher 3.3, rxTools 2.6, both booting with browser exploit, SysNAND and EmuNAND are unlinked

    If I want to play DSi games, can I do it like this?

    1.) Boot SysNAND in Gateway mode
    2.) Use BigBlueMenu title manager or DevMenu from my Gateway card to install the DSi game (.cia) on SysNAND
    3.) Install the same game on EmuNAND
    4.) Use rxMode EmuNAND to play it

    For GBA it should be quite similar:

    1.) Boot SysNAND in Gateway mode
    2.) Use BigBlueMenu title manager or DevMenu from my Gateway card to install signature patched AGB_FIRM and the GBA game (.cia) on SysNAND
    3.) Install signature patched AGB_FIRM and the same game on EmuNAND
    4.) Use rxMode EmuNAND to play it

    Will it work that way? Can I really just install any pirated DSiware and GBA games (even custom ones) on SysNAND? This is my biggest cause of uncertainty because I always refused to do anything on SysNAND (except for installing the Flashcard Timewarp which is a legit CIA).
