    Same thing for me, bottom screen displays a nintendo logo and the top screen displays the 3DS logo, the game will not load. Alpha Sapphire here.

    Perhaps it's a dump or outdated firmware issue. I have no issues on Gateway 2.6 / GW3D 9.2.0-20U. Works flawlessly, online and everything.

    oh, I had an SD card with a 7.1 emunand in my 3DS, I installed an SD card with the latest emunand firmware update and Alpha Sapphire loads fine. So, make sure your emunand is updated and it will work as intended.

    No, my 3DS is at 4.1.0-6.

    You did make a NAND backup, right?
    You did make an emuNAND right?
    You did update the emuNAND right?

    Do all of that and then comeback.

    You really need to make a nand backup, just in case. Then make an emunand and update it. There should be a thread around here somewhere that explains how to do that.

    All current games being released will not run for you unless you use an emunand. Do you know what an emunand allow you to do? Basically you are emulating your NAND from the SD card, so you can update the latest 3DS firmware without updating your original 3DS firmware. There is a tutorial here somewhere.

    Are you using the gateway launcher 2.6 and have a fully updated emunand? Doesn't sound like you do.

    Maybe you shouldn't have rushed into something when you have no idea what you're doing.
