Hello all. My apologies for probably reading the guides a bit less than I should have. I'm in what I find to be complicated situation. I hacked my 3DS systems last year back when Gateway was king, but now I see the new sysnand homebrew with A9LH and want to get on-board with that, but I find it all wildly overwhelming with how many more options there are now. Here's my overall situation: Hardware: O3DSXL (sysnand 7.2U, emunand Gateway 9.5U) N3DS (sysnand 8.1J, emunand Gateway 8.1J) N3DSXL (sysnand 10.7U, freshly formatted with no homebrew) I also have the following items: Gateway Red and Blue cards Sky3DS+ (two orange buttons) Ocarina of Time 3D (US) Ocarina of Time 3D (JP) ActionReplay PowerSaves Both of the Zeldas have gateway exploit savegames on them as one of the save files. I'm at the point where I at least want to update my equipment. My stuff is very outdated, and can't do a lot of things that I'd like to do. High on my priority list are the ability to access the eShop, the ability to play any legit retail DS or 3DS cart from any region, and the ability to play my R4i Gold or my Sky3DS+. I want to do this across any and all systems. In addition, I'm interested in moving past my O3DS. I remember a year ago it was considered the 'safe spot' for homebrew, a fallback when the N3DS wasn't well figured out. My original 3DS data going back to my ambassador 3DS is on the emunand of my O3DS. I'm looking at two options: 1. transfer my O3DS emunand data to my N3DSXL, or 2. transfer my O3DS emunand data to my N3DS I would prefer the second option, but worry that it might be difficult/impossible to do, and moreover I'm worried about losing the O3DS emunand data and about bricking the N3DS. I imagine it may be easier to do with the N3DS XL, least of all because it's an unhacked, freshly formatted system that is of the same region. My preference for the N3DS stems from my preference for that model (I like the regular over the XL and would like it to be my main unit). Some final perks I'd like to see: -using official and unofficial themes on shuffle across both systems -converting the JP N3DS to a US firmware for multiplayer/download play/whatever (stuff that is region-locked for no good reason) -playing online on all systems with legit games and pirated games -ripping legit carts to system SD so I can relive the PSP glory days Now I know that I've written a lot here, so I want to truly thank anyone who's gone this far. Below are my basic questions, the boiling down of what's above. If you can please help me to get any further with these questions, then your contributions will be greatly appreciated. 1. Which of the different homebrew setups out nowadays are best to use? I've heard Luma3DS with A9LH is popular, will it do the things I'm looking for in a system? 2. Is it at all possible to transfer my emunand of my O3DS to either of my N3DS systems? I don't care if it is no longer an emunand on arrival, in fact I'd prefer to just 'boot and go' like it was a normal system. I'd prefer it transfer to the JP N3DS somehow, but if that's not possible while still keeping what I'd like, then the N3DS XL will do. 3. Is any of this stuff not necessary anymore? I don't have a problem selling old equipment if there's no need for it. I'm convinced that the Ocarina of Time games won't be worth much to me now that I have a Sky3DS+ for example. Gateway also seems to be going out of style, so I wouldn't have a problem letting it go. Once again, thank you so much to anyone who took the time to read all of this. I thoroughly appreciate any and all responses. Thanks again, and hope you have a good day.
