    I just recently purchased a Gateway 3DS cart and have been spending the last hour setting it up. So far I've done everything except update my emunand (I've backed my original and formatted for emunand though). Gateway's website says they haven't cracked 7.2.0's encryption yet, so I assume their might be some issues updating. I'm just not sure what they are. Right now I'm on GW3D 4.5.6. Here are my main questions:

    Will being on 4.5.6 prevent me from playing roms (offline) that require a higher system fw?
    Is it safe to update to 7.2.0? Are there any consequences to doing so?

    1. if the game ask u to update, then update it, it will be safe as long as u r updating the emuNAND
    2. it is completely safe, all games r running fine, except system settings, miiverse and e-shop

    All right, so it's safe the game asks me to update as long as I have GW3D fw? just want to make sure.

    As for the second, isn't it kinda bad if I can't access settings? How else do you get to the GW loader?

    the blocked e-shop, miiverse, and system settings are on the 7.2 (emunand), u access the gw loader on ur real nand (4.5)

    Specifically, be on your Emunand.
    (In terms of OFW and CFW, yes, be on GW FW)

    I'm partial quoting myself on a method that you will be sure you're on the right firmware:

    Do open the spoilers to look at the picture, to have a better understanding:


    Cheers!

    That is a good method, but I use another method on top of that. I don't have pictures right now, though.
    In system NAND, I have my settings icon at the top left (where the game icon usually is) and the game icon way off somewhere
    In EmuNAND, I have my game icon at the top left and my settings icon way off somewhere.
    That way, I know by looking at the top left corner what mode I am in. If I am in system NAND, I have to run the settings there to get into EmuNAND, and when I am in EmuNAND, I can play the ROMs there.
