    Hello, good night and sorry for my dumb questions.
    I am trying to install Luma on my 3ds, so I can use gateway again, the problem is that I got stuck in the provided guide, more specifically in the part about "Copy SafeB9SInstaller.firm from the SafeB9SInstaller .zip to the /luma/payloads/ folder on your SD card" because I dont have Luma installed, so I dont have this folder.
    My questions are,
    1. To install Luma, I need to first install B9S? Or is the contrary?
    2. And how do I install Luma? The github of Luma provides to little information, and I cant find anywhere how to install properly.
    3. Like, I downloaded Luma from the github, the archives of that zip are to be put directly inside the sd card? All of them? Exactly like that? Or there just one thing?
    4. And how exactly I can get "boot.firm" from that? I searched the entire zip, and still...
    5. That path "/luma/payloads" is created by the instalation of Luma, or by me manually?
    Any help wil be much apreciated! I really want to use my 3ds again, but I cant go foward without knowing what to do or not.

    Follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/

    As for keeping GW, you'll need to downgrade your EmuNAND to the last working version for it.

    You will need to create an emunand and downgrade it to 11.2 then you can use this guide

    Thank you! I was using the guide, but aparently I was in the wrong section; going from the start helped me.

    Basically i got this working... i used another sdcard and injected my emunand backup and copied files of Luma and godmode9 from my original sd card which i prepared following the guide from https://3ds.hacks.guide/.

    So basically by second sdhc card was copy of first with all folders used to hack the 3ds and with homebrew luma3ds10.1 and godmode9. then i followed another guide and copied files as instructed and placed the payload in luma/payloads and boot_config.ini in root of sdcard thats it

    Power on console and hold the down arrow make sure gateway card is in slot and you HAVE EMUNAND in sd it will boot to emunand.. if you have only SYSNAD dont even try or you will brick your console or have a ofw written

    i followed this guide for gateway only https://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_tuto-utilizar-gateway-3ds-con-sighax-b9s_2236028

    Good luck.. Note you can still use gateway but only for playing .3ds games off the cart.. dont do anything else in emunand else you will loose your b9s... i use it for playing my .3ds games and i play cia also.. however cia suckers take a long time to install :P

    Hi! Thank you! That did work for me! Just a question though, can I still install fbi so I be able to install dlcs in mode gateway-emunand without losing b9s? Or better not?

    Like I said, don't do anything in emunand just use it to play your gateway cart.. use luma3ds sysnand for installing CIA's etc... But not in emunand to be on safer side use different sdcard... Like I have a seperate sdhc card with luma3ds, fbi and CIA's installed and I have another card setup with emunand only for gateway...

    Did Luma 10.0 break anything on the dual boot?

    I got Gateway screen to load once. It crashed. I had to reboot and hole L+SELECT to get the menu to pop up. I format the SD card in the menu so I could setup an EmuNAND and play in that. I formatted properly and I turned off the system. But, now I cannot get the gateway screen to pop upand my Luma CFW (SysNAND) lost its custom theme, the games, everything i gone. (I backed up my SD card prior to this moment.) I just want to use my gateway cheats again. (I've tried converting them to NTR. NTR cia file crashes instantly on launch.) Any help is appreciated. :)

    Are you using luma 10+ or 9.1? Use 9.1 as 10+ will cause issues.

    Im
    'm using 10+. I have fixed this issue. However, I cannot get gateway to boot into emunand. Every time I boot gateway (Sysnand or Emunand) It black screens and deletes b9s and luma and I have to format my SD card several times. (SD is MBR)

    EDIT: Isn't it safe to just downgrade my 3DS using SysDowngrader and downgrading to 9.0/9.1/9.2 to gain the original access to gateway? I'm really wanting to get my gateway working. The cheat system was really good and never crashed on me. Luma crashes all the time when I transfered my codes from gateway to luma. An old friend of mine who was popular during the 3DS's hacking days has tried to help me. (This isn't my 3DS. It belongs to someone else and they want it modified and this is new to me) He couldn't help me. He was unsure if its safe to downgrade with b9s installed (Downgarding to 9.2 instead of like 10.3 or something newer.)

    Use a different as card for luma 3ds 10+ for gateway use 10 or 9 and then use emunand only in that sdcard

    All Emunands I've created boot into a black screen. It's not that simple.
