    Hi all

    I own a 3ds running sysnand of 9.2 and Pokemon AS retail card.

    My Question is this:

    If i downgrade my 3ds to 4.2 U and then using Spider ROP i install the DS exploit..

    1) can i set up and emunand using MT / Gateway / (anything else) launcher ?
    2) if i do get emunand up and running (emunand = 9.5), Will i still be able to play Pokemon AS on the emunand WITHOUT losing the save file stored on the card ?

    Thank you for your help

    edit: i do not own a Gateway or an MT-card or even any NDS flash card.

    1) Yes, if you dont have a gateway use the MT-Launcher to launch the emunand in classic mode.
    2) No

    No different types of encryption.

    I would stay on 9.2 as GW works fine with it. If you are worried about the online thing look up Go Gateway works great.

    Actually I don't own a gateway and I have no idea when I'll be able to get one either .

    So what I'm worried about is waiting for some kind of a new method which will never come.

    My Kid Icarus retail save still works.
    Maybe this rule is only for newer games...

    Yeah most of the newer games are the ones which face this problem.
