    Hi everyone! I am a bit tired of having my n3ds's battery last half when using the gateway chip and have been looking into possibly switching to a CFW. I have used pasta cfw and after having an emunand to mess with I am a bit hesitant to using pasta cfw as it works directly with sysnand and I would prefer something that uses an emunand similar to gateway.

    I have a Jap n3ds *not xl* running 9.2fw.

    I think the most promising one I have been able to find is rxtools but I am not sure what benefits or options are available with rxtools on a n3ds. Does rxtool have an emunand as well like gateway? I am also having a hard time finding a guide for rxtools on a n3ds.

    I have seen a lot of news recently on 10.3 kernel access and gateway is also promising support on upto 10.3 (I would assume that also includes emunand 10.3) so I am unsure since I already have gateway if I should move to cfw or not. Battery time is annoying but If it is worth the stay I could carry a power bank, etc.

    I am looking for some honest opinions from very patient people that would like to share and possibly give some pros/cons to the subjects above.

    Thank you all for your time in advance.
