    If you tried to update 8.1 (SSB) emunand to 9.3 via internet, GW 2.6 launcher isn't compatible with that system version.

    Recreate your emunand and stay at 8.1 until GW releases a compatible Launcher.

    i hope you have a nand backup :S

    im guessing you must not of actually set up emunand, if you update in gateway mode without setting up emunand you pretty much brick your system.....only way to restore is if you have a nand dump backup

    are you 1000% sure you picked "format emunand" in the gateway menu, this is what happens if you update without emunand......that's the most likely explanation

    That's weird.. can you actually update the emuNAND from a ROM? I though GW blocked the partition

    ok so no formatting emunand....basically getting a hardware mod done and restoring a 4.x nand dump is the only option you have to get your system working again
    yeah you can by holding up when entering gateway mode.......i was under the assumption this only worked if you had emunand set up....i guess not though

    You did not create emunand, and updating in GW mode without emunand -> Brick.
    Only way to recover is hardmod and flashing back your nand backup.

    so what he did was not setup an emunand and run it before he updated from the ROM ?

    yes u can update emunand from a rom u hold up on dpad while u launch the hack then choose the rom same region and load , with wifi off this is suppose to be less riskas u have to be in gw mode to load a rom

    Hold L while touching DS profile, Format emuNAND, wait for the format, restart console, go into GW mode again, be sure you're in emuNAND (by moving an icon or something and comparing that with your realnand) and only then updating
