In the midst of all of the excitement surrounding the long-awaited New 3DS support for Gateway, I have come to realize that between my original 3DS, my gateway 3DS, and now my ready-for-gateway New 3DS, I'm getting a lot of 3DS systems, and they're a bit redundant. I've seen a thread on here of people talking about how you can system transfer from a normal 3DS to a gateway 3DS and do so safely. The trick is to system transfer from your normal 3DS to the emuNAND on your gateway 3DS. This would be ideal for me, as I could combine my two main systems (at the moment) into one system, and remove the excess unit that I don't need.

Now before I do that, I have some questions that need explored before I can move forward with confidence.

1. I've read a guide on IGN about 3DS system transfer, and it says that in the end, you will be asked to move your old SD card to your new 3DS. Given that emuNAND is installed on the SD card of my gateway 3DS, how exactly would I move my normal 3DS' SD card to my Gateway 3DS to complete this process?

2. Both of my systems are currently using 8GB SD cards. My normal 3DS has 2.95 GB free right now. The System Memory is listed as having 620 blocks open. I'm concerned that with already having the emuNAND using up 1GB on the gateway 3DS' SD card, that the memory could become further constrained and that I will run out. I have a 16GB SD card I could use. Is it safe to move my gateway 3DS' SD card data onto the 16GB card?

I don't have any .cia installed on my Gateway 3DS, and I have a decent number of downloaded games on my normal 3DS, mostly ambassador games but also a few others like a few GB VC games, Steel Diver Sub Wars and 3D Space Harrier for example.

If there's other things that are complex about this plan and that I may need to know about, please let me know. Thank you!

    Still a criminal. Prescription from a doctor, which then had to be approved by the state, and they just legalized it here too for recreational use. But I can't even simply STORE it in my home
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Federally assisted housing. Still illegal to have it on property even though its medical and it's recreationally legal here.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    alright.. that sounds like a mess
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I hate conflicting and unclear laws
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then the city just passed an ordinance no smoking weed or even using edibles in public. I dont smoke cigs. I hate them. But why are cig smokers free to smoke anywhere they want?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    If i go to a bar and want to sit outside for a few beers. There are smokers all around me chain smoking the entire time. But now with the new ordinance, i can be fined $300 if I take even a single puff of my medication.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    okay that sounds bad, but what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    are they forbidding to eat in public or what?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Cant have it in my home, cant use it anywhere on the property even in the smoking area outside, cant go in my car because thats a DUI, and now cant even walk down a back street at 3am bothering no one or you get fined. Yet people can smoke cigs all over the place.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    No thc edibles in public is what theyre saying
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    no smoking weed, no eating weed products
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ah
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    It so dumb. Small town mostly Trump Republicans. Like 3 city console members making decisions for everyone.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's what you meant
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    thanks for clarifying
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea..I'm sure
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I want to move but my mom, step dad, daughter, granddaughter, oldest brother, uncle, aunt, and several cousins are all here.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Kinda sucks to move and not know anyone. But I miss the big city.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ok so you're in prison because family needs to stick together, gotcha..I wished my family was more like that
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    as in that they'd stick *more* together instead of less
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea I think either extreme isn't good
