    Just tested it and it does indeed work......I wasn't actually aware FW spoofing wasn't in place with b1

    Not sure if there is any risk involved in updating this way, but it's an option I suppose

    I need at least 6.1 for Pokémon and I a really bored to wait for Gateway update...

    If more people experienced this without trouble, I am really interested.

    Edit: 2.0b1 was not a risky gateway firmware ?

    Nice! Ill make sure to do this once my Copy of for the sequel arrives. I want the FPS increase that is supposed to come with 5.X+ :)

    I got my Japanese 3ds off of craigslist, and it turned out to be on 1.0.0-0J. When I updated it to 4.3 via cart, there is no eshop at all still, nor internet browser. However, It still automatically downloads stuff like the youtube app, and asks to run the eshop to download it XD

    Cart based updates are weird :)

    Thanks guys.
    I'll try this on sunday.
    Can anyone tell me what happens when you open the eshop , after you do this
    (i) in emunand
    (ii) in sysnand ( i assume that the system will be updated )

    In the mean can someone with the hardmod tell me what happens (after updating emunand) if you format your sysnand ( and not your emu-nand ) and then open the eshop in the sysnand ?
    I would be really grateful to you guys for this.

    i. Your system will request to be updated.
    ii. Your system will request to be updated.

    The only reason to do this is to get above 5.X in emuNAND for the lag reduction.
