    I know I can use Decrypt9 to dump physical games/carts, but which option should I select for use with 3DS Gateway? Should I select Dump full/trim, or select Dump and Decrypt full/trim? Thoughts on this appreciated :)

    Update: I was wanting to use Decrypt9 to dump physical games as I am unable to access Gateway Menu in A9LH.

    Did you follow the instructions? Do you have down_v2gateway.bin (from the tutorial) and gateway.bin (from Gateway's website) in your luma/payloads folder? What happens when you hold Down on boot with your Gateway cartridge not inserted?

    I have both of those bin files in luma/payloads folder. When I press down on bootup, it displays gateway screen and says no Gateway Card inserted, press A to continue or something like that...

    Are you sure the menu doesn't appear at all? Can you just hold down on boot, then not touch anything, then take a picture of the screen you get? And are you using version 3.7.1 launcher.dat (recommended one)?

    Redownload 3.7.1 gateway and paste the launcher.dat over the top of your current one. I'm not sure if there's a way to check (besides changes in the menu).

    Ok, I pressed Down without card inserted. It comes up with screen that says "No Gateway 3DS card found!" "Please insert the Gateway 3DS card to boot into Gateway mode."
    "Press [A] to continue."

    Note: Cant take pic right now, charging phone in other room.

    You definitely never pressed A? That doesn't sound familiar at all.

    Hey! Thanks! Update 3.7.1 fixed my problem! :)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I have a new issue/concern:

    When I boot into Gateway Mode and go into System Settings, it says GW 11.0 or whatever. After leaving screen, I am no longer able to boot into GW card by pressing select on game icon in home menu. If I go into System Settings then, it then says Emu 11.0 or whatever. When I turn system off and reboot, it says Sys 11.0... Is all this normal?

    I now noticed that I have to unwrap some apps in sysnand, and then my same apps were not on home menu in gateway mode... What do I do?

    Sys 11.0 is luma CFW with Firm write protection enabled and is normal. Is autoboot sysnand "on" in luma config (select on power up) and also, it's kinda useless having a Emunand with A9lh imo, and its best to remove it, as everything else can be done with cfw sysnand.

    So what can I do? Don't I need EmuNAND for use with 3DS Gateway in A9LH?

    No, you dont need Emunand in a A9LH environment to use Gateway. Everything else including Gateway can be used in Luma CFW sysnand, and the instructions for removing emunand and using GW with V2 A9LH are in that link posted in this thread.

    Can I still use my Gateway Red Card? All of my games are on it...
    I am confused, how would I boot my system into Gateway Mode without an EmuNAND? When I boot into Gateway Mode and go into System Settings Menu, it says GW 11.0...

    What part you don't understand? It's all written in the tutorial (link) above in the 2nd post and my sentence above. Gateway can be used with 11.0 Luma Sysnand (meaning red card also) since the card is needed to have access to all features because it's DRM by the GW team. I have 3 different 3ds consoles all on V2 a9lh luma sys 11.0 (no emunand on either of them) and the gateway red card boots on all of them with roms on the card.

    Ok, thanks :)

    I just don't want to mess my N3DS up, I only have 1...

    Can you link me to the section in guide explaining how to remove emunand? I am reading guide now, can't find that section. I clicked link to section 5- removing rednand from sd, but it doesn't link me to that section of guide

    When you exit Settings, the 3DS reboots. If you want to go back to Gateway mode, you have to hold Down when exiting.
