I've had a gateway 3DS for a while and haven't gotten around to updating it until now. I know it allows you to install .CIA files now, which from my understanding basically just go on the SD card in the 3DS instead of the gateway card. Also I know that the gateway cartridge itself is used to boot into gateway mode, but if the only files on the microSD are games, do I even need one for it to boot correctly? And before I decide whether to switch all my .3DS files to .CIA, if I have a game in .CIA format will it still work with the save data I used with the .3DS file?
