    Turn off your 3ds and try again.. Mine went black once and it's not a big problem.

    You updated to 9.6, which isn't supported yet. You'll have to reformat your EmuNAND, and don't update. If you need to update to anything except 9.6 for some reason, I think there is a way to update by using CIAs, but I haven't tried it.

    Are you using the DS Profile or web browser exploit? I found that occasionally I had to re-run the Gateway Launcher.nds in order for it to boot-up correctly.

    Sometimes reseating your big SD card or the Red card fixes it also.

    Why are you trying to update the GW? Is there a prompt asking you do to so? If you can play games maybe it doesn't need to updated.

    you updated the emunand, gotta wait for gw to release an update unless you have a backup of emunand with an older firmware on it

    Some of the things you are saying do make sense to me. Let's start from the beginning.
    What system firmware are you running (sysnand)?
    What emunand firmware are you running ?
    --both can be found in system settings of the respective firmware
    What version of the launcher,dat are you using? 3.1.1 is the latest
    Old 3ds or now 3ds?
    What is the exact procedure you are using to attempt to update the gateway card and causes the black screen?

    I ask this becuase if the gateway card needs to be updated the gateway menu will prompt you to update it. If it doesn't you don't need to do anything. All that is required to run the latest GateWay release is to put the new Launcher.dat in the root of the internal mSD or SD card and run an appropriate exploit such as cubic Ninja, OOT, web browser or DS profile. The exploit you should be using is dependent on the model of 3Ds you have and the sysnand version.

    This is actually happening to me right now.
    Sys nand: 9.2
    Emunand: 9.4
    Gateway: 3.1? Im not positive I had 3.1 downloaded from a while back so I assume I updated it, but I would have to put the old dat back to check.

    This is happening to me too.
    Whenever I go into DS Profile, it asks me to update the Gateway 3DS card, even if I don't have it inside the console. o.o

    I found a workaround though, you can go into the Gateway menu by Clicking Cancel on the Update prompt, but remember to NOT have the GW Red Card inserted, only after you press Cancel (B) and you go into the Gateway menu, you can put it in and use the Gateway functions and tools.

    This still bothers me, though, as the update prompt is happening in both my O3DS and my N3DS, both of them have the Launcher.dat for 3.3. :/

    Anyone knows a way to remove that update prompt?

    Im having this trouble...
    I can't boot on the godammit classic mode now, it turn in black screen.
    I haven't done anything, my gateway is in the 3.4v and my emunand probs on the 9.5, sysnand on 9.2.

    Someone found the solution to this red card update bug?
