    As you might know, if you quit SSB through the home menu, the system will restart in sysNAND, which can make playing the game kind of annoying. If you hit home and instead of quitting, run a CIA game from the home menu, the other game will launch, and quitting from there will bring you back to Gateway mode. Since the only way to save a .3ds rom is to exit the game through the home menu, I HIGHLY recommend installing SSB as a CIA game.

    I don't think that's true at all. I leave my smash with the app trick ever since I start playing and my save is always there.

    You can just press the home button and select any other app like the camera for example and it will not exit back to SysNAND.

    and no its a card1 type, the whole exit to to home menu to save thing was removed when omega came out iirc.

    Exit to save is still present.
    only Card2 type are using "real time saving" to write directly in the ROM file.

    Card1 still require a Home+exit or Home+load_another_title to export the save to file.
    Card1 re-use internal save if you launch the same game than last played game (if you power off/shutdown without exiting, running last played game is fine)
    It replace internal save if you play a different game. don't launch a different Card1 game after a hard shutdown or you'll lose your progress.

    Ah so its still there, well still changing from from SSB to camera or some other non game app is a proper solution for this.

    For some reason my camera app doesn't work and crashes. I tried launching BBB as it exits quickly but since it doesn't have a save not sure if it forces SSB save.

    For all intents and purposes, you should technically play them in classic mode, seeing as that is more or less emulation of a legitimate system, and doesn't have any gateway pseudo-saves/gatewaymode menu injection, etc.

    Technically speaking though, it shouldn't matter.
