    Somewhere, out there...
    My N3DS currently has A9LH and Luma installed. I also still use gateway, but am slowly going away from that to Freeshop/Cia games. Lately, I have been hearing about B9 on here, but don't really know much about it. Is there any benefits to switching to B9? Also, can I still do the following with B9:

    - Luma (Godmode9, Hourglass9, etc.)
    - BootNTR
    - Play Freeshop/CIA games
    - Use JKSM for Pokemon game save editing

    Also, how does updating system work in B9? My N3DS only has a SysNAND right now. Thoughts and help on all this greatly appreciated :)

    For now, there are no super-duper benefits for the end user, but is highly recommended to upgrade because from release 8.0 Luma supports only B9S.

    As for all the things you mentioned yes, they will work without problems.

    The upgrade guide is this: https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s
