    I currently have a New 3DS running 11.0 with menuhax and the Homebrew Launcher installed. This setup works great for emulation in RetroArch but I would like to be able to use CFW and install my games using CIA.

    Should I sell my games and go for a Sky3DS to be able to play backups on my New3DS? Hope for some exploit to happen someday and be able to downgrade from 11.0 or should I sell my New3DS + physical games and buy a 2DS (and still have €150 profit from selling the N3DS) and install CFW on it? I already own a 128GB microSD so storage should not be a problem.

    Or sell your games to get a 2DS and use DSiWare downgrade on your New 3DS to get a CFW then sell the 2DS.

    No need to install a9lh on the 2DS, regular luma and an emuNAND will do just as well. The potential profit from adding a9lh is not worth the time spent (if you can even find a buyer who will appreciate it).

    Yes, you can system transfer from an emuNAND on latest firmware.
