    Hi everyone,

    So, apparently, retail Pokemon Sun and Moon doesn't work on Emunand 11.2 in Classic Mode. Instead of waiting for Gateway to patch it, is there other way to run retail games without updating Sysnand? I use O3DS at 4.3. If it comes to custom firmwares (CFW), please tell me what CFW to use and what I need to do to run Sun and Moon because I have never used custom firmware, and I have no idea how to install them.

    If it comes to updating my Sysnand to current 11.2, I want to know if I can revert the Sysnand back to 4.3 after I am done playing the games. I plan to use the Sysnand in Gateway website but I want to use my own back-uped nand.bin file but I don't know how to do downgrade using my file. I know how to do it by Gateway method.

    I don't want to download .3ds file or install .cia because I just want to play using retail cartridge while keeping my O3DS accessible to Gateway.

    You can install a9lh + Luma + gateway with these guides. That way you can have sysnand 11.2 and emunand on whatever firmware
    First https://plailect.github.io/Guide/
    Then https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-with-gateway-on-v2-a9lh.431691/

    Thank you for your reply. Is a9lh same as Decrypt9? I have v4.3.0-10U and I went to the guide with from 4.0.0 to 4.5.0 and with browser but the guide ends at Step 5 with no mentioning of a9lh. If I install Decrypt9, does a9lh get installed automatically?

    The guide uses Decrypt9 to install a9lh.
    Your next step is https://plailect.github.io/Guide/2.1.0-ctrtransfer

    So, to make it clear, I should follow this guides one after another?

    1) https://plailect.github.io/Guide/
    2) https://plailect.github.io/Guide/2.1.0-ctrtransfer
    3) https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-with-gateway-on-v2-a9lh.431691/

    I just want to make sure because in your first post, you forgot the installing a9lh part.

    Sorry, I am just newbie at this stuff and I am paranoid about bricking my O3DS.

    After finishing step 3), I can put my cartridges and start playing right?

    It is like this.
    1) https://plailect.github.io/Guide/ You strart here
    2) https://plailect.github.io/Guide/2.1.0-ctrtransfer This will get the file for the a9lh
    3) https://plailect.github.io/Guide/installing-arm9loaderhax This will install a9lh
    4)https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-with-gateway-on-v2-a9lh.431691/ This will allow you to use gateway with a9lh.
    Sorry for the confusion. Afte step 4 you can play with your cart. Make sure your in luma3ds. (The last part will tell you about that)

    I am following the guide and I have installed a9lh. I am at
    Section V - Injecting FBI
    but I am stuck at 4th step because I cannot select FBI inject.app files within the Hourglass. I have .app files in files9 folder but only hs.app shows. Do you know solution to this problem?

    Did you move the dpad up and down?
    I got confused their too. It seems like dpad right/left but it is dpad down/up.

    I recopied them and still, only hs.app shows.
    I took hs.app out of SD and saved on computer and now Hourglass shows "No usable file found".
    So, for some reason, Hourglass cannot see the regional .app files in files9 folder but it can see hs.app.

    Did you flash emunand to sysnand? If you did you don't need to do
    Section V - Injecting FBI

    I don't know what "flashing" emunand to sysnand is.
    I just took out SD card that the gateway was installed, backuped in my computer, formatted SD card using windows, and just followed the guides. How do I flash emunand to sysnand?

    Do that then skip Section V - Injecting FBI

    Are they actual cartridges? Did you run in Classic Mode? Cause I tried 3 times in my O3DS and it throws an error that cart was removed.
