    I'm reading all around that it doesn't work anymore, that you need fixes, that you need to install .cias on sysNAND here and there, that the microSD involved needs to be formatted and on and on... Problem is, every post I've found is old, like from January, so I figured it'd be better to ask in case of updates.

    So, I have a New3DS XL on 9.5 emuNAND on the table, an 8GB microSD in my hand and Gateway Blue Card in the other. What do I do to play my DS backups? Thanks.

    Yeah nothing's changed, install the bluecardfix.cia from gateway on your sysnand, using one of the old guides.

    Copy the files in the folder called "blue card" from the gateway download. Then copy over files in .nds format.

    Can I shove gba and gbc games in too?

    EDIT: I've got a slight problem... Blue Card works fine and so do the games, but now the DS Profile thing to boot Gateway doesn't work anymore. Why? Do I have to use CN again?

    I think there is a .nds files you can get that fixes it.

    Run gwinstaller.nds, or whatever it's called, from the blue card.

    This happens after playing DS/DSiWare games, just use the .nds to reinstall it as mentioned above.

    GBC yes (after adding an emulator) but not GBA. You need a DSTwo card for that.

    Using rxTools though you can install them on your homescreen.
