    well yes, I didn't update yet because I don't know what the new version does, and I fear that if I update it I won't be able to use the gateway again(not that I can use it now anyway) but most of the time new versions are no good, I saw somewhere that in order to run gateway you need to have sysnand 9.2 and not above

    ok I found the guide thanks. Sadly I can't figure out how to make gateway and luma work together, and I'm still getting the same crashes

    I don't think there is any point to use gateway, when you have B9S with luma 3ds

    cia files require HUGE amount of eampty space, since you install the cia from inside the 3ds

    No, with freeshop, you install the .cia directly from nintendo's servers to SD card. You want 16GB+ SD card for the 3DS btw...

    You can switch the SD you use for your gateway to the SD for your 3ds :P

    Also because Nintendo was really bad at CDN security.

    using 2GB SD card may have caused this issue you were having in the first place?

    And yeah you can use 64GB SD card formatted with FAT32 GUI. I think you can also use 128GB SD card, but it causes issues with GBA games

    oh, then I guess I don't need gateway after all. Well it would be nice if I could get it to work, I mean I have it inside the homebrew there... its so close to work, but its just freezes.

    Well tommorow I will go and get an sd card and test it out

    I can understand you might be sentimental about the gateway, but I believe it's inferior to just a 3DS with CFW

    you can try this [Tutorial] Booting GW with B9S (and some help)

    edit: a better one [Tutorial] Using Luma3DS + Gateway on B9S

    its not a matter or superiority but convenience

    I didn't saw the comment until now. Well the problem is that I used a microSD for gateway, and when I use an SD adaptor to mount the microSD it says that it cannot display any content or something like that. the adaptor is unlocked of course. So I guess I can't use an adaptor with this

    @leontas2007 you'd be better off not using it - if you want to use it, you need to keep an emuNAND (not follow the Move emuNAND page) and also keep both your emuNAND and sysNAND on 11.2 or below. Gateway won't work on the emuNAND on 11.3 or higher, and if you boot Gateway in sysNAND mode on 11.3 or higher, your b9s installation will be removed and you'll have a stock console (and if you use an N3DS you might brick). It's dangerous to keep using Gateway. What you might want to do though is get it working, then follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/ then follow the Move emuNAND page and update, and sell the Gateway card.

    well I still have emunand from my gateway, and it hasn't been updated. I think it is 11.2. But yes maybe its better to keep it that way and stop messing around with luma and gateway.

    Tommorow I will go to buy a SDCH card and see if its working with the freeshop, I will post here the results.

    Anyway thank you all for your help today, I really appreciate it

    Hello again people.

    Today I bought a new sdhc card and it works fine. At last after so many hours the 3ds is working, I don't know exactly what my 3ds is running or what features I can use but I hope that I will figure them out.

    Now the only thing I want now is to move my saves from emunand to sysnand. I played some games on gateway and I want to have the saves to sysnand, any idea on how to do it?
