I have been trying to figure out why converting a 3DS ROM to a CIA would be beneficial, and I just cant figure it out. Someone mentioned that you wouldn't need to carry around the Gateway card since they are all installed to the main SD, but that doesn't seem to be an issue for me since I don't plan on carrying any retail cards so the Gateway will probably stay in my 3DS. Also, you need to Gateway card to get into emuNAND, so if the 3DS ever shut off or died and you didn't have the Gateway with you, you could not play those games. Then there's installing the CIA onto sysNAND which STILL doesn't make sense to me. Not only is that far more risky, but installing game patches would be more cumbersome with little gain. Finally, from what I hear, not all games will work online as a CIA, so you may still end up having some games on the Gateway. Am I missing something here?
