    Hello guys,I am quite newbie user for CFW ,because I am using Gateway3ds all the way since the first day I got my O3DS LL 3 years ago and learnt to setup RxTools last year for installing some cia that gateway doesn't support.I haven't touch my 3ds for about 7months and suddenly when I'm back to 3ds scene,I saw so many changes and updates,so I am little bit confusing regarding all that changes.

    I have read on both Pailect and Gateway guide for installing A9LH,so my questions are :

    1)Am I able to switch to Gateway mode after installing Luma3ds with Pailect's guide?If so,how do I do that?
    2) Am I able to switch to Luma3ds mode after installing gateway's a9lh ? If so,how do i do that?
    3) Do I need separated/multiple SD cards to do the tricks for 1 and 2 ? Is dual mode possible for 1 SD card?

    PS: My o3ds LL sysnand is on 4.5 and I still like gateway because of exFat format,3ds/3dz rom copying speed from PC and the gwcheat. I am not interested on NTR ,sorry about that,because mine is o3ds.

    Thank you for listening to me,hopefully I could get the most understandable answers,thanks.

    Yes, after setting up a9lh, follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-with-gateway-on-v2-a9lh.431691/


    No, if you use Gateway's method, you're stuck with it. It's not advised!


    You don't need more than one SD card. I don't know what you mean by dual mode.

    Follow this guide after installing A9LH, and you'll boot into Gateway if you press a button on startup, otherwise you'll boot to Luma:

    Just keep in mind that Gateway doesn't currently support 11.1, so careful not to update any further than you intend to.

    [Edit] Ninja'd by Ninjacat, I mean Quantumcat. Or is Quantumcat a good ninja because of quantum entanglement?

    Thank you so much for the detailed answers, the dual mode means switching between luma to gateway or gateway to luma ,which you have explained,thank you.



    Thank you ^ _ ^

    you can switch between them you can use a boot a boot manager or chain load something to load gateway's a9lh payload because it doesn't work on a9lhv2
