    Can I use hourglass9 to restore a gateway emunand to a sysnand as stated here :

    https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax

    If, before following this guide, you already had an EmuNAND setup and would like to move the contents of your previous EmuNAND to your new SysNAND CFW, now is the time to follow Move EmuNAND instead of doing the first four steps in this section.

    Reason is I already followed the guide to install luma+a9lh BUT my current sysnand is 4.x and I wish to use the gateway created 10.x emunand to be used as the sysnand. I assume hourglass9 supports gateway emunands right? But seeing that godmode9 also deletes the emunand after moving it to sysnand, can I restore the emunand backup created by hourglass9 after that?

    Yes you can do that. But DON'T boot Gateway in sysNAND on 11.3, you'll lose a9lh.

    The guide has a fork section dedicated to restoring emunand to sysnand and godmode9.

    Yeah but it is assumed that you'll update the firmware at some point (because Poochy & Yoshi doesn't run on 10.x for example). And in that case, if you land on 11.3 and boot your Gateway on sysNAND, you'll lose all hacks.

    The sysnand will never go beyond 11.2. Anyway, I assume that gw emunand restored as sysnand will still be patched by a9lh if I follow the 3ds guide right?
