I don't like being required to use the gateway card and then be blocked from using retail carts while booting, it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, and I set up a friends 3ds to a9lh and I found it just to be a much nicer experience.

So, is it possible to actually switch over easily? I'd prefer not being constrained with gateway so much.

Yes, just backup your SD, go to Sysnand, then go to the homebrew menu and launch emunand9. Format the sd (No Emunand). Unmount the sd and drag all the files back onto it. Delete all the gateway files (Launcher.dat and others.)

Use this guide for the next few steps.

Now just start at part 2 if you're above 9.2. If you are below 9.2, start here. Then once you are on 9.2, start on part 3 of the guide and go to the end of part 5!

I assume you need to uninstall the GW exploit first with a NAND backup then just follow the guide as normal.

Retail cards work automatically in GW mode as of ages ago. It auto changes to classic mode when inserted only GBA and nds is broken.
