    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?

    You are in emuNAND on gateway mode so you have different aps to sysNAND.

    The console reboots when you exit system settings so you end up in Luma. If you want to go back to Gateway you have to hold Down.

    You won't need your emunand partition on your sd card, so yeah :P

    If you have an emuNAND on your SD card, Gateway will always boot it (unless you go through the menu and force it not to). If you want Gateway to boot in sysNAND without having to go through the menu, you need to delete it, yes.

    What you have currently is a copy of your system in emuNAND, which you don't need. That's why the guide tells you to flash emuNAND to sysNAND and then delete emuNAND.

    You moved your emunand to your sysnand, so it is useless to keep it on the sd card now :) back up your files, and format your sd card on your pc using SD Formater, making sure to make a full whipe and size adjust, so the missing space used for the emunand is taken back.

    Or use emuNAND9 to format card without emuNAND - Gateway has problems where there are still traces of the partition on the card (emuNAND9 definitely doesn't leave traces).
