    I was on part 5 section 5 step 5 of Plailect's Guide and I pressed Y on bootup. The blue light that indicates power turns on for half a second and turns off again. What happened?

    Make sure your 2DS is actually reading your SD (eject your SD, blow in the slot and on the card, and reinsert), I've had this issue before as well.

    Also, I was just wondering if there was anyway to get my Gateway Red Card working. I just finished all of Plailect's Guide

    Just out of curiosity, why do you still want to use your Gateway card, if you just finished installing A9LH?

    Hum, it's the other way around. Red card for 3ds roms, and blue card was originally used to install MSET exploit. It can load DS games.

    My mistake. Don't have a gateway 3ds, use a9lx with Luma3DS CFW instead.

    I'd imagine Gateshark cheats and the in-game cheat menu would be reasons why.

    That's understandable. I have two Gateway cards, and that's two cards too many, now. I'll have to try to sell them somewhere.

    Because of what Tomato said and because I have a lot of games on my SD card and a lot on my gateway. The games from my gateway won't fit into my SD card. Also too lazy to buy a bigger SD card
