    I was interested in Gateway until v2.0b2.

    More important points for each...
    1. Do you currently need/want (or anticipate the need/want for) region-free?
    2. Can you easily run homebrew with alternate methods (possibly for less money)?
    3. Do you currently (or anticipate the) need/want for anything that isn't released in .3DS format?

    Is it about the brick code Gateway had on v2.0b2? Because that's been resolved for quite a long time now.

    1. Yes, because some of us really want to play 3DS games from different regions since the 3DS is region locked. Even more so for many 3DS/New3DS users that have, for example, a Japanese 3DS/New3DS, but they want to play 3DS games in English so Gateway's region-free solution is perfect for them. Although, it's not on the subject of region-free, Gateway can also run modified roms like undubs, fan-translations, etc.
    2. Yes, maybe, idk... I got Cubic Ninja for less than $5 before the price went up. Not to mention I have a copy of OoT3D from launch date.
    3. Yes, .3DZ for online play. Although, the roms in .3DZ can switch back to .3DS at anytime.

    So, all the time waiting was for finding an exploit?

    If it was viable we wouldn't be searching for OoT in shops now

    That's always been a thing. When you exit system settings it just kicks you back to sysnand cos it resets the 3DS in a sense

    Just did the system transfer and got the same error. I will try the trick to format emunand, it's just to get back the pokemon bank personally (already paid it 3 times with all the 3DS, prefer to transfer it this time xD)

    Dunno for you but maybe it's because we left the emunand unlinked? (thought it would be better to do a system transfer) as during the first reboot, it tried and failed to connect to internet with sysnand. Then, after the exploit, tried and failed to connect again.

    I'll try to reload the Gateway Menu and do a "Format Emunand" and see how it goes.

    Worked. Once Emunand is formatted, you just need to enter your NNID again in emunand (no need to enter it in sysnand, even if the emunand is linked with sysnand). Then, the pokebank and other stuffs I had on my old 3DS can now be redownloaded.

    Thanks for the trick!

    Oh their business practices are straight garbage, even for a piracy joint. I still use my SKY daily and it still is a better product for what I require but I bought a Gateway back in November and thought I'd pirate some eShop titles ;)

    Using it to emulate OOT? >< No but really, I've bought one for myself mainly because OOT and CN. When a CN CFW that has a working emunand gets released I'll probably stick with Sky/CN.
