    hello everyone,

    I have successful booted up gateway 3.1 using my sky3ds. however, for some reason whenever I enter the system settings it doesn't show GW3D in front of the firmware. the 3ds was originally on 9.0 but I updated it to 9.2 using my sky3ds? I formatted the sd card for emunand but still no emunand. What am I doing wrong? Should I revert back to 9.0 and try again?

    Can of pepsi says you aren't using the original 4GB Micro SD card.

    This is right. I'm using the 4gb micro sd included and it shows gw3d on mine

    You should use the included 4gb microsd then you should transfer your updated emunand to another (bigger) microsd afterwards. Accidentally updating sysnand is a nightmare

    There's tools to make an image of the MicroSD and then you restore it to your larger SD Card.
    You then re-size the partition.

    Or you can just use emunand tool, it's compatible with the new 3ds now. :)

    I can't get EMUNAND working on the new 3DS MH4U either. Not sure what I am missing. Tried a 4GB mem card and a 64GB. I format emunand, boot to gateway mode, and the system settings doesn't show GW3D in front of the 9.2.0-20U firmware.

    No, I was afraid to mess with that, I thought I could just format a different 4GB micro SD. If you can forgive my ignorance, is there a reason why you need to use the original Toshiba microsd that came with the US Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate new3DSXL?

    It seems to be working for others, if you're that concern you can backup an image of the SD before attempting it.

    Unless you have a limited edition console with preloaded software there is absolutely nothing on that mSD worth a squat. Stick a blank one in there and sysnand will recreate the folder structure.

    Make sure you format that problem mSD with Sd Formatter v4 from Sd association website. If it still gives you problems after that try the original one or another one. Look at the "move emunand to larger Sd card" thread for some tools to make an image.

    This is really unnecessary. Just create the folders N/E in each nand, and whenever each of them boots just press select. If gw mulitrom shows up - you know you're in emunand...

    you don't need emunand to use gw :) the multirom menu and all patches etc still work in sysnand.
    rememeber, emunand is not a requirement for gw

    On the old 3DS I thought you could have separate color themes for sysnand and emunand, it doesn't appear to be the case any longer.
