    Try reformatting your SD, see if that helps

    What FW version? it's know that going to settings after being in gateway mode in FW<2.02b makes you crash.

    I haven't updated to 2.02b yet, but I had a similar issue as well.
    Removing the gateway cart before doing the DS Profile and re-inserting it after the DS boots back to the home screen seems to prevent this issue for me.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is a bug... as the older versions of the firmware never froze on me...
    But at least you have a workaround until GW Addresses the problem.

    I use to just leave the cart in and run the exploit, but after updating to 2.0b1 I have to use this workaround to make it not randomly freeze when trying to launch the exploit.

    I remember the latest brick report from a legitimate cart being caused by this issue, having to reset the 3DS numerous times because of it freezing. Be careful, BMinkie.
