    Apparently this is a thing. Atm im using a O3DSXL on SysNAND 9.0, and emuNAND 9.8 (latest) and I own a Gateway 3DS. Could someone please, step, by step, explain to me how to install RxTools, and how to set it up so that I can play GBA games.

    When I got RxTools, do I need to swap it continiously in order to play my 3DS roms?
    How about saves? Do I keep them?
    Estore games? (Pokémon Shuffle)

    I own 1 SD card.

    First download the lastest rxTools version, get your firmware.bin from the cdm_firm.py (you need python 2.7) and put both the firmware.bin and the rxtools.dat then go to the launch.rxtools.net page (with wifi off first to bookmark it).

    What is Cdm_firm.py and Python?

    Also, can Gateway EmuNAND and RXemuNAND be on the same SD?

    cdm_firm.py is inside the tools folder, and you need python 2.7 to use it, search on google.

    Probably Roxas didn't even remember about python. It's something that almost everyone with a bit of computer knowledge knows about, and almost always has it installed.

    For rxtools emuNAND up to 9.0 (i remember 9 but maybe lower/upper) yes it needs. But if GW and Rxtools are the same emuNAND so ok sorry

    I'm almost certain that it depends on his sysNAND version, if he has a sysNand at 9.0 or higher I don't think he'll need it.

    If your nands are unlinked, then you need to install the gba games on both your emunand and sysnand in order to use it on emunand.

    If you formated your console (after the emunand setup) or did a system trasnfer then they're unliked. If you can see the cias installed in emunan on your sysnand then they're linked.

    Im fairly certain i didnt do a format or did a System transfer. I did install Savedatafiller on EmuNAND, and i don't have it on SysNAND

    For some people, installed titles on emuNAND will not show up on sysNAND even if they are linked, preventing the gift wrapping issue. My 4.3 3DS was like this, but both my 9.2 o3DS and my 9.0 n3DS have the gift wrapping issue.

    So it is pretty save to say my Nands are linked? So what do I do now to get Gba support?
