    Just wondering if it was possible somehow as I never use sysNAND anymore.

    You can use ARM9Loader Hax to cold boot into AuReiNAND which uses your Gateway's NAND. You wouldn't have the red card functionality, but you'd be able to boot CIA's

    If you wanted to then boot into Gateway emuNAND for the red card, you could boot into it from the Homebrew launcher

    I'm guessing I fucked up. These are my exact steps.

    Installed Homebrew and menuhax
    Put CTR's boot.cfg and boot.3dsx files in root
    Put GW.3dsx in the 3ds folder
    Launched Homebrew through Browser and a thing booted automatically which I suppose was CTR (everything was very flickery).
    Set GW.3dsx as default booting choice.
    Launched and black screen.
    Rebooted, tried to relaunch Homebrew through Browser and it freezes.

    Delete the files called "boot.3dsx", "boot.cfg" that you already have on your SD
    Download this package and extract it into the root of your SD.
    On your SD card, look for the file which name starts with "ropbinpayload". Open it with HxD
    Press CTRL+F and search for boot.3dsx. There will be two results.
    Rename them into auto.3dsx
    OFC then you have to setup again the Gateway.3dsx as default entry point with CtrBootManager

    Done, but how exactly do I boot CtrBootManager? There are the two boot files for it, where do they go?

    just place all the 3 files of the package that I've linked you on the root your SD, overwrite/delete the older ones. Then, if you have already installed menuhax you should find a file on the root of your sd which his name start with ropbinpayload. Open it with an hexeditor like HxD and search boot.3dsx. You'll have 2 results. Change these results from "boot.3dsx" to "auto.3dsx" (without ""). Save and exit. Reinsert the sd back to your 3ds and turn it on holding the select buttom. You should launch CtrBootManager. From there, setup as default entry point Gateway.3dsx and try to reboot your console to see if it works properly.

    That's what I was missing, however it doesn't work. I turn on my 3DS while holding SELECT but it just boots into sysNAND.

    Try to unistall and reinstall the menuhax. Then edit again the ropbinpayload.

    Now on boot by pressing L it just freezes, the top screen is all fuzzy and the lower screen is plain white.

    Err: Couldn't open rxTools/sys/blabla

    Press any key to continue... and it freezes. How do I tell him to pick GW.3dsx?

    Did you edit the boot.cfg and add the path for GW.3dsx?

    yes go to settings, set the timeout to 0 and default Gateway (or whatever you named it) with boot fix set to 0 as well.
