So I have a gateway 3ds, no issues here.

But my GF wanted to play some of my games so it occured to me that maybe I could buy her a 32gb SD card, use my gateway to setup her 3DS by installing the BigDevMenu cia files(whatever I need to install and uninstall cia without a gateway card). And proceed to get CIA games on the 32 GB.

Is this viable? I play my games through the gateway paired with a microsd, but could she roll with using just cia? any concerns, I heard a lot of odd things about cia files(like visiting a menu deletes stuff or something).

As long as tour gf's 3ds is 9.2 or under you can downgrade vía browser exploit and install palantine's cfw. If its beyond 9.2 then bad luck, m8.

Understand CFW is a pain and a learning curve. Creating cia files is also a chore.

If you want to create or download cia files then yes you can get by with one red card. If she gets out of gateway mode then the red card will be necessary to boot back into GW mode.

Having a GF that is dependent on you or more precisely your possessions is a decision you will have to make.

Ah so I need to downgrade to 4.5, get her on CFW?

she does have 9.2 and I totally forgot that you need the red card to boot into the gw mode.

She has a couple of game cartridges like smash bros, would those still work by going back to 4.5/4.5 cfw?

I guess another way would be to have her stay in GW mode after I put her in there, and she just keep it in sleep mode and if shes leaving a game that soft resets(like smash), tell her to go to street pass so it preserves her emunand.
