First of, thanks to all the community for all their resources and work on creating a CFW for the 3ds. I really appreciate the drive the community has towards creating a free solution for 3ds hacking. Now onto to my situation: I began the process of hacking a 4.3 o3ds yesterday with the intention of eventually having a 4.3 sysnand with a 9.8 rxTools signature patched emunand with dev menu installed. To begin I installed rxtools before realizing I first needed to install pasta for the dev menu. I proceeded to instal things in the following order: rxtools through a ds flascard, then palentine-PBT pasta through the mset exploit, then devmenu over wifi, then gateway emunand. This is were my problems started, after installing emunand, my sysnand lost both the devmenu and the web browser and they were nowhere to be found in the emunand either. I concluded I must have done things in the wrong order and set out to start again. Today I formatted everything (3ds and sd card) and tried to install emunand first, then I followed this guide: http://mega3dsroms.blogspot.com/2014/11/3ds-cfw-custom-firmware-tutorial-in.html The results have been disastrous, at some point my sd card seemed to have gotten corrupted. Now whenever I insert it into my pc it displays in the root a shorcut to itself that leads me to what senns like another root, after that I downloaded and sd formater program and got back a whole GB of missing storage after reformatting with it. I thought this would have fixed the problem, but nope, every time I enter the sd into the 3ds it recreates the 3ds folders and when I put it back into my computer it gets that annoying shortcut again. Any suggestions on what may be the root of my problems? should I format the 3ds again? is there a way to do an even deeper format than using the windows options or this: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ OUENDAN!!!!!!
