    I'm curious as to what kind of setup everyone else out there has.

    Here's what I'm running:
    - N3DS w/ 9.0.0 sysNAND
    - MSET exploit
    - Gateway CFW w/ 9.0.0 emuNAND
    - All backups converted to CIA
    - Ninjhax CIA on emuNAND
    - NTR CFW 2.2 on retail Cubic Ninja for the SaveManager plugin

    With this setup I can use my N3DS without my Gateway card for the most part, in order to save battery life, I can boot into Gateway mode without Cubic Ninja, I can access homebrew through Ninjhax without constantly switching my Cubic Ninja save, and finally I can use NTR's save manager plugin to restore all of my saves to my retail carts.

    Does anyone have a better setup? Any suggestions for mine?

    (I hope you don't refer to CFW setups specifically, or else this post would be awkwardly unfitting :S)
    ALBW Limited Edition 3DS XL
    sysNAND: 4.5 (downgraded)
    emuNAND: 9.7 (latest)
    Backups:
    Some installed as .cia to use the internal SD Card space;
    Some others as .3ds/.3dz on Gateway Card. (I don't want my whole library with me all the time, focussing on a smaller amount makes me enjoy my games more tbh)

    I don't want a CFW because I don't need it^^
    The Gateway Card rests in my 3DS almost all the time.

    EDIT: Confused "relate" with "refer" ._. (not a native speaker)

    Correct, I never use the Gateway flash card to play any games. I have converted all of my ROM's to CIA files.

    I like your multi emuNAND setup. I was thinking about doing that with rxTools and Gateway for decrypting xorpads, but I think that using decrypt9 through Ninjhax is my best bet since I would be having to swap Cubic Ninja saves.

    I have an O3DS lying around and I can't figure out if I want to sell it or not. This sounds interesting, but is there any advantage to using a second console for a DS flash card?

    I keep it nice and simple.

    N3DS XL
    -9.0 sysNAND
    -MSET to launch emuNAND
    -Gateway with 128gb SD

    Black/Silver O3DS XL
    -9.2 sysNAND
    -Not much going on with this console, serves as a back-up unit.

    And finally, my pride and joy:

    White O3DS XL
    -4.4 sysNAND
    -MSET to launch emuNAND
    -Borrow Gateway cart from N3DS when needed, all games/homebrew installed as CIA.

    All 3 of these units are getting posted today for NAND access mods :yay:

    My set-up:

    O3DS XL;
    Sysnand 9.2
    Emunand 9.7 (RXmode/Gateway)

    N3DS XL;
    Sysnand 9.0
    Currently no emunand (awaiting KARL3DS/Gateway to support emunand 9.7 so I could do a system transfer)
    Ninjhax and Gateway (I don't need it anymore on my O3DS since I have RXtools doing the job just fine.)

    Mine is:

    - White N3DS on sysNAND 9.0
    - MSET for emuNAND
    - emuNAND 9.5 (on a 64GB mSD card - most of my games are .CIA for convenience)
    - Gateway 3DS with 32GB mSD card (with games that can't be converted to .CIA)
    - Cubic Ninja with the GW exploit still on it (not sure what to really do with it now...)

    Works fine for me, I get great battery life and everything works how I want it to. The only thing I miss out on that I'd really like is Spiderhax, but AFAIK that's o3DS only. Most of my games I've had to download (yes, I own all of them, bar a couple) because I can't convert to .CIA myself. This setup works perfect for me, but if there's more to add to it, I'll give it a go. :P

    I used 3DS to CIA converter at "the max" (the one that requires python 1.5)

    I want to know how you did THIS. I have a 4.5 o3DS and dumped my xorpads AND got the 7x key and all the other crap around it. Also got o3DS XL and a N3DS (currently running) But i still can't region free and convert Gundam the 3D Battle. And I can't find a CIA of this anywhere. (NOT asking WHERE to get it mind you) I got it to convert but the CIA gives me a black screen on launch. I "found" a converted CIA a user at a certain 3DS forum posted but It's not region free and gives an error that the game could not be started.....
