    A friend of mine is having issues with launching the gateway profile hack. Every time he reapplies the profile hack via the blue card, then after going home and into the DS profile to activate the hack, it just goes into the profile as if the profile hack was never applied.

    Things we have tried thus far:
    A different sd card with no emunand
    System memory format/reset
    recopying over the launcher.dat and the gateway.3ds file
    roms are loading fine from the blue card

    I am going round there tomorrow to try applying the hack with my blue card.
    I’m out of ideas except maybe trying to re update his DS to 4.5. However we can’t test it till later today.

    Would appreciate any other suggestions of things we could also try

    is weird as fuck.

    I already have this problem. I fully reset the 3DS, and it's OK for me.

    does your home screen have miiverse icon on it?

    its possible to partially update the 3DS so its actually on 7.x but displays 4.x in the settings, no real way to detect this unless the miiverse app is on the homescreen

    this is caused by interrupting an update in progress

    Have asked there is no miiverse on his homescreen. He is also a tech enthusiast like me, there's no way hes been a helmet and accidentally updated the 3ds. This is why I'm confused, it makes no sense why its not working.

    does it come up with the "A error has occured" when entering the DS profile or just straight to the DS settings?
    it was only at 7.x that the DS settings doesn't crash with the exploit installed, so its either that or he isn't actually installing the exploit

    one last thing he can try is selecting the other region settings in the Gatewayinstaller.nds

    My friend was launching the exploit wrong. He was launching "username" in profile instead of "ds profile", what a helmet lol.

    Lol, thought you said earlier, you bigged him up and said he was a "tech enthusiast", would never do nothing wrong!

    Apparently "tech enthusiasts" do mistakes sometimes ;)

    I'm glad he sorted out.
    BTW, I liked the "helmet" thing... I didn't know that. hehe

    Cheers!

    nah was really a mate have mentioned him in a different post about ordering gateways from eachmall as we both ordered at the same time.

    Anyway he had me up at 3 in the morning and we pissing around with it for a couple of hours. I went round there the next day and it worked first time for me and that's when we found out what he had been doing. I originally went round there to test my blue card as that's the only thing left i could think of checking, it worked and i said "ah your blue cards fucked", he was like "nah, its a me" with the biggest grin you can imagine.
