    Hi,

    Downgrade to 4.5 was sucessful - entering the GW Menu to Downgrade was possible at this time.

    However, after that it's not possible to enter the GW Mode anymore. Just white screen trough DS Profile, even pressing 'L'.

    What's wrong? Homebrew launcher variant wont start either!

    By the Way I did this 3 times with sucess, but this time GW wont show up.

    it may be dumb....but the launcher might not be in your SD card... or you didnt run the GW installer with a flashcard.

    Did you install the DS profile exploit with a DS flashcart?

    @Ralph1611: launcher.dat is in sd card. What did you mean with flash card? Should I install it with the red card in the slot?
    @Quantumcat: yes
    @Shadownfield: for the easier Entry Point

    Not sure I consider opening system settings easier than just turning on my system, but alright, thanks.

    I'm not sure that's easier than cold boot on 9.2. I mean you press the power button and GW boots.

    There's no need for that. If OPs firmware has the browser, her can go to go.gateway-3ds.com and install nvram. That is the work around without the ds mode card.

    Well, he said the DS Profile didn't work, so I was seeing if he had the exploit installed.

    Once downgraded to 4.5, the mset exploit is no longer installed to nvram. If it can't work at all, the only option would be to format the system and try again. That usually fixes all problems

    Solved the problem, but I am not happy with it.

    I tried the blue card from Gateway and installed the mset exploit (before that it was an ace3ds). But why did it not work with ace3ds? On another 3DS I can setup the entry point sucessfully.

    So it is on 4.5 with rxTools now. The only entry point ist trough launch.rxtools.net. Any other launch method possible, without connecting to internet?

    Do you refuse to use 9.2 and simply coldboot into EmuNAND?
