    Hi here is what I have:
    • Old 3ds Xl with 8.X sysnand firmware
    • Gateway 9.9 emunand (unlinked)
    So here are my questions:
    • What is the best way for me to play GBA VC Titles?
    • Can I install RXTools and run it alongside my original emunand?
    • Should I downgrade my sysnad Firmware?
    Thank you in advance

    you can use rxtools alongside gateway, i wouldnt downgrade
    agb_firm is pretty much the only nice solution, since citragb stutters without dynarec

    There's no need to patch agb_firm if you are using rxTools.

    Just use Gateway (e.g. BBM) to install GBA games to SysNAND or SysNAND+EmuNAND (if you want to play them on EmuNAND), set up rxTools and play them in rxMode.

    rxTools and Gateway use the same EmuNAND, so you won't have any trouble. Just use the rxTools exploit to boot rxMode and the GW exploit to boot GW mode.

    If your nands are linke
    Didn't know RxTools removed the need for patched AGB_Firm.
