    Basically, I've been out of the 3DS loop since last December. I have quite a few things prepared but never really had time to dig deeper. But now I finally have time since school is over so I'm looking for advice on what's the best way(s) so that I can start playing ROMs on my 3DS.

    Things I have:
    New 3DS (Japanese) on 9.2 (Sysnand)
    .3ds game files ready to be loaded
    Gateway RED + BLUE cards

    Things I don't have:
    Emunand
    Zelda OOT card
    Cubic Ninja card
    Custom Firmware (Not sure if this is better or Gateway? Looking for a guide of some sort)

    Cold boot rxTools using homemenuhax http://gbatemp.net/threads/rxtools-...rom-browserhax-homemenuhax-to-rxtools.398420/ but if you want to stick with your gateway card you can use homemenuhax > mini pasta > cubic ninja CIA in sysnand > Gateway mode or do both and go wild.

    Either rxTools or Gateway, it depends on your preference. Gateway has .3DS ROM support so you don't have to wait for slow .CIA installs or convert .3DS to .CIA, but rxTools can autoboot on power on with menuhax.

    If you don't need the immense number of features rxTools offers, you could always go for CakesFW or Reinand too.

    Just wondering, for any of those CFWs, is it a requirement that I need a Cubic Ninja or Zelda: OOT game card? Or could I just work with what I already have at the moment?

    Japanese game cards for those 2 seem to cost quite a bit, so I'm hoping for the least expensive alternative.
