    I have an OLD 3ds on 9.2 with emunand, etc. The thing is I really want to play Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer and newer games, and idk if it will be possible playing them on cfw. So, should i buy the gateway or is it a waste of money.

    Sorry for my english, thanks

    If you want to drag and drop the .3ds file a mSD & play it from there, you can buy Gateway.

    If you'd rather save the money & drop cias to the internal SD > Have twice the space available on the SD for the CIA and it's install > Install the CIA > Remove the CIA > then play the game, use CFW.
    You can play any game with cfw on your o3ds (that isn't N3DS exclusive), you can also update your Emunand to 9.9.

    I have a gateway because there was no cfw for 3ds when I bought it. Today you have more options for loading 3DS backups, back then the only way was with a flashcart. I wouldn't advise to you to buy one, unless you are rich or the price comes down a lot.

    The problem is cfw is so unestable, my pokemon rumble world and Super Smash Bros saves always deletes and i have to start all over again. I dont want to deal with this anymore, thats another reason i want gateway

    What cfw / version are you using?
    For an O3DS, you should be using rxTools.

    Try updating to the latest stable version of rxTools, you shouldn't be losing your saves.

    Since you're using an O3DS, you can update to firmware 9.9 on the Emunand. I doubt it'd solve the issue of saves getting wiped though.
