    I have encountered the situtation that the system froze after quitting a game.

    I immediately googled and read this, http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/3DS_Hacking_FAQ#My_saves_are_being_lost_after_I_exit_a_game

    But it seems that the guide is not very up to date, since there is no mentioning of Gateawy 3.0.x

    May I ask if the solution is applicable to gateway 3.0.x? Also it mentioned 'may not work with EmuNAND, as removing the SD card may cause complications'. If it is the case, what should I do?

    I have had this happen once on my 9.2 system using 3.0.x. It hung for over 30 seconds and I wound up holding the power to get it to stop. It corrupted the last game I played. The only way I have solved the issue is to restart my game every few hours to ensure it saves. I also backup my sav files to my PC. It did only happen to me once after leaving the system asleep for a good 4 hours with the game running.

    What do you mean by corrupted the last game you played ?
    The save data for the game is corrupted and unreadable? Or is it just no data saved for your last play?
