    I'm still waiting for 9.2 support so I haven't used my gateway yet but I remember reading about this problem where installed cias have to be unwrapped each time gateway is loaded. Has this been fixed or is there a method of getting around it? I also remember reading about one fix being to format sysnand while leaving emunand the same, but some people thought there would be problems in doing that.

    Formatting either NAND is the standard advice to people having this issue. I haven't heard of any problems as a result.

    I believe it happens when an item on emuNAND resides in a spot that is empty on SysNAND. Ensuring the space is filled on SysNAND (by using a folder for example) will prevent items loading up wrapped on emuNAND.

    also if the cia is not for your region/is not hacked to be region free - then you will need to unwrap each time too

    Delinking the sysnand is the best thing to do.

    Format sysnand
    Log in with NNID from the settings

    Done. Now your sysnand and Emunand have their own folders and don't mess with eachother. It worked for me and now I'm happy to be able to move stuff freely. Never having to unwrap more than once.

    Should I keep my SD card in the whole time? The one with emuNand.
