    Hi,

    I have a Japanese New 3DSXL here that has the Gateway exploit installed. Original SysNAND is at 11.2.0-35J. I would like to install boot9strap on it, via safehax as outlined on 3ds.guide, but find that safehax hangs on a black screen every time. I've tried most things I think, going back to safehax r19, with game cartridge and without, and re-checked that everything is in place on the SD as it should, etc.etc. Maybe you guys can help me with the following questions:
    • can this be due to the installed Gateway exploit? If so, how can I remove it?
      I bought the DS with the exploit installed...
    • if not, what else could I try?
    • would using hardmod be a solution? I know how to solder.
    Sorry if this is newbie stuff, that is most likely due to the fact that I'm a newbie :-)

    What is "gateway exploit", how do you launch gateway mode right now?

    Switch on and hold "down"... if I understand things right, this uses the installed exploit to boot into EmuNAND. (?)
