    Yesterday I made a big mistake of installing a custom font on my Gateway EmuNAND. This led to it not booting anymore. So I was going to reformat and just inject my friend list files and continue like nothing happened. Thing is now i can't access system setting on either sysNAND or EmuNAND to unlink my NANDs. When I go into system settings on either it gives me a black screen then crashes to the home menu and reboots. I'm unable to use my Gateway on this 3DS now and I do not want to go to Luma + A9LH. I want to continue using my gateway cheat menu. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Brickway strikes again... You know you can use A9LH/Luma and gateway cheats right????

    This has nothing to do with Gateway.

    OMG, that's the biggest lie I've read so far about gateway.

    Anyway, which system version do you have? Do you have any nand backups? There are more entrypoints than sys settings, just need to find one.

    You can use TinyFormat to unlink your NANDs instead. It won't cause problems with NNID login or delete files from your SD like the official system format does.
    Edit: Actually, be careful with that. If your system settings is still broken after the format, you won't be able to go through the system setup process, forcing you to update through recovery mode.

    Are you sure you didn't change anything else since last time your sysNAND system settings worked?
    I don't see how installing a font on emuNAND could break system settings on sysNAND. There must be something else you did.

    If you set up a9lh then you don't have to worry and can give it a go

    Even if they were linked, there's no way you can screw up sysNAND from within emuNAND, when in emuNAND sysNAND is completely unaccessible.
    Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it. You can't update sysNAND in Gateway mode because it lacks FIRM protection. You can still use emuNAND with A9LH though.

    Yes. You can use it with or without an emuNAND (but emuNAND recommended because updating in Gateway sysNAND mode bricks you)
