    Will just following this guide walk me through the process even if I don't have A9LH already installed? Because all I have ever used is Gateway 3ds.

    That guide is the best for setting up A9LH. My thread is just made to explain CFWs, so people can make an educated diction on what CFW really works best for them.

    I was saying that I got it to work by updating my luma. Thanks though! Was just posting to hopefully help anyone else that had similar situation.

    Can someone explain how to actually use classic 7.x+ mode? Every time I select it, it automatically defaults back to classic sysnand and it gives me the "game card was removed" error.

    I won't lie. I'm totally confused, sorry.

    I'm trying to install Luma 3ds.

    I got it to work on Gateway and on the latest Emunand by changing the Pokemon Sun.3ds card1 to card 2. Now the only question I have is it possible to switch it back and convert the save so I can import it into the retail cart?

    Does retail carts work with Luma menuhax method with 6.6 latest version? I know a9lh works with retail carts of sun/moon but wondering of menuhax way.

    Luma 6.6 works. I doesn't matter if menuhax or a9lh.

    Hello guys. Same problem here, I can't seem to run retail Pokemon Moon because of the same error. I could install Luma, but then again I also have retail pokemon X and pokemon AS, they had the old save encryption, and i dont really want to lose my savefile on those games; Is there any way I could run Luma sysnand on 11.2 and then load de old save encryption to play X and AS. Or should I wait for gateway their launcher.dat?

    Worst case scenerio I guess I could get pokebank and tranfer all my X and AS pokemon and then update my sysnand (Hopefully using Luma) to 11.2.

    You could use the free Pokebank alternative and save yourself some money.

    Perhaps using the gateway mode -7.x will work for playing old pokemon saves in x and AS?
    Edit:

    Can you downgrade from Luma 11.2 to 4.5 if anything goes wrong?

    Once I get my pc fixed I will come back here and follow this guide as I can't get sun and moon to work and I set up rx tools back in spring. But what I am wondering does anybody know if I were to buy the e-shop version of Pokémon sun would it still reboot the system or would I be able to play in the meantime while I fix my pc?

    Did my work and installed Luma CFW, I can use the gateway mode to boot 7.X- so that I can still use my retail savegames.

    If anyone know a way that I can export my pokemon X and AS (retail) saves to the new 7.X+ Format please let me now so. Or if someone know how to load 7.X- saves using Luma that would be nice so that I dont have to switch between luma and GW

    So I've been trying to go through the A9LH tutorial, but I'm stuck on the browser part. When I go to http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin it just takes me to github and says "404 file not found". It's especially odd because I had it working once before I realized I forgot a file and exited. I've tried initializing save data and it still keeps giving me the "404 file not found" error. Does anyone have any tips for me?

    Okay I got my pc up and running once it's all updated I will follow the guide but can someone tell me: I updated my emuNAND to the newest rx version which I've been told is bad. But I now I have access to my backups from back in march. Should I restore my NAND to the backup from back in march before I try to upgrade from rx tools to luma and a9lh or can I still do it with rx updated?

    Have you tried using NTR save plugin? Do a search in google to find it. You use it to backup your 7.x- save and import to 7.x+

    If you did move emunand all your games are on sysnand. If you didn't do it then hold select then power the 3ds on and turn off autoboot sysnand (you will boot emunand and from their you can update it)
