    So every time I play a NDS game using my gateway 3DS it resets my DS Profile and I have to use my Blue card to install the exploit, is there a way to avoid it?

    I used the ropinstaller + name change x2 method. Sticks for me. Nds games & no loss of insalled exploit.

    Sorry I'm new at this but is the rop installer a thing that you use to install the ds exploit?
    If yes, how do I change the name of the DS profile when it immediately enters the gateway mode?

    It's only for the new 3ds, the O3DS will not allow the GW mset to stick with ds games sadly... but you don't have to change it, just
    1)install ds exploit with NV RAM.
    2)Install flashcardtimewarp.cia.
    3)Change ds profile name.
    4)run ds exploit. (it'll crash)
    5)install ds exploit with NV RAM again.
    6)Lauch ds game cart/game
    7) test profile exploit for gateway.

    That's what Laramie said, which is unfortunate. :(

    This method seems to work for me for a few days but then goes away. It's weird.

    What is ropinstaller + name change x2 method?

    If playing a NDS game doesn't reset MSET, have you ever uninistalled MSET on your console? How would you do it? Thanks.

    RoP + Name change is one of the methods to maintain the exploit after running NDS games from the Blue Card. RoP is an exploit that's run from the Blue Card.

    I've had no reason to uninstall the Mset, but if you want to get rid of it, you can flash you backed up System Nand dump to Sysnand via gateway menu.

    Edit: There's no reason to remove Mset once you have it installed though. It's what lets you boot into gateway without the need for Cubic Ninja / OOT. Having to run the exploit via blue card after running a NDS game is just a bug.

    With ropinstaller + name change x2 method, does modifying the 3DS (not NDS) profile uninstall MSET?

    Edit: After getting the exploit to stick, I haven't altered my settings at all. Aside from network connections. So I couldn't say.
