    I remember there being a similar thread about EmuNAND 9.2, but I can't find it anymore. I recently updated from EmuNAND 8.1 to 9.4 because I thought "why the heck not?".
    And now suddenly my EmuNAND is running significantly slower. It's far from unbearable but it is definitely noticeable. Did people find a solution to the slow-running EmuNAND?

    No. It's slow even on system nand since they added themes.

    Themes are great aren't they? Just like toolbars!

    Consarnit... Nintendo, what did you do!? You've forsaken me!
    But thanks for the answer. Guess there's nothing to do but to accept it and move on...

    The best way I found to reduce slowness is to get a faster SD card. Ever since I got my 64GB card for my EmuNAND, it's been a LOT faster. It loads almost instantly.

    Sometimes when i do the DS exploit, instead of booting into gateway mode I just get a black screen.. it only happens sometimes though

    does anyone else have this issue?

    It's pretty cringe worthy how it takes ages to load the menu even if you don't have any theme applied :glare: You would think that if they couldn't implement themes without adding the annoying slowdown, they would make them an optional feature.

    Say, wouldn't it be feasible for hackers or GW to find a way of disabling them?

    My 4.5 XL on 9.4 emunand takes 4-5 secs for the menu to fully loadup. My N3DS XL is pretty much instant.

    would using gateway slow things down though? I wonder how fast it'll be when we can use gateway with 9.0-9.2

    so this is why they try to kill old 3ds. apparently the upcoming firmwares will probably be optimized for new 3ds.

    I haven't noticed any slowdowns over previous firmwares. I'm using themes as well. If the SD card has anything to do with it, here's mine:

    32GB SDHC UHS-I Class 10 SanDisk Ultra formatted to 64KB clustering.

    I don't use an EmuNAND.

    You need a faster SD. People complain of lag sometimes during games, even with their Gateway mSD, because their speeds are too slow. Note that this doesn't include lag related to playing Pokémon battles in 3D, as that comes down to shitty code optimization in an effort to release the game before Christmas and get more revenue.

    If possible, try to get a class 10 one that has enough space for CIAs (if you want that). If your mSD cart already is huge, like mine (I have 64 GB class 10), then 8 GB will probably suffice (just make sure you get a fast one).

    Yep as other people have already said, get a faster sd card preferably class 10 and you'll notice the difference. :)

    I thought SD class only affected the writing speed

    Kind of offtopic, but: the issue with Pokemon is not only kind of shitty optimization, but the 3D models of the Pokemon themselves are WAY higher quality then needed for some reason.

    Yeah my original 3DS is slow as a dog to turn on now. Very annoying. Just like Apple - We'll let all devices run any iOS, oh you're on old hardware, time to upgrade! Onto N3DS. Seriously just a business ploy imo.

    The point though, is that it will never be the same speed as before even with a brutal SD card. I know, I bought one way back to avoid Gateway startup crashes... and while my speed at booting is faster than of my wife's 3DS with a normal SD, it STILL is unoptimized as hell. Nintendo just needs to get their crap together... but they are probably banking on the N3DS and won't fix this for 3DS.
