    Hi folks,

    I bought a second 3ds XL for my daughter (it is in 4.5.0-10E).

    Copied the files from the blue folder onto the microSD and put it in the blue gateway.

    Installation went fine. Have also put the launcher file onto the internal SD card.

    Red card boot fine and I see the gateway menu by holding the left trigger. Then I can choose to boot in Gateway and selct does bring the games andf they run fine.

    However, going to the profile does not indicate GW mode but still Ver; 4.5.0-10E. Therefore I am kind of scared to go and update the nand. I know on my 3DS it clearly shows GW3D 7.1.0-16E after I have selected the gatewway mode. Mine is 4.4.0. So I wonder if this is showing different for 4.5.0 ?

    Mine has been going from the first Gateway fws and updated to 2.1 as for this one has been directly installed with 2.1.

    Any idea why this is doing so ?

    Thanks

    you have to hit "FORMAT EMUNAND" in the gateway menu before GW3D will show up in the version number

    the GW3D will only show on emunand, so you have to format emunand.

    Thanks, I had completely forgotten that I had done that on the other 3DS console. That did the trick. Many thanks again.
