    I use to know what caused this... Could someone help me? I'm helping a friend out and his gateway keeps loading back into homebrew. What could be the cause?

    Menuhax being also installed on EmuNAND.

    He doesn't have menuhax installed on the emuNAND as we haven't been able to access it to perform that action, I am pretty sure

    When menuhax is installed on sysNAND and you create an EmuNAND after installing menuhax to your sysNAND, it's also installed to your emuNAND. That's the problem I think.

    I didn't run into that problem when I installed menuhax, formatted my emunand, reinstalled menuhax and booted into Gateway so I'm not sure if that is the problem

    So you start the 3DS, wait a little bit and then you see the HBL?

    And did you format your sysNAND or emuNAND? And if you really mean emuNAND - there's no need for menuhax on emuNAND! You just need it on sysNAND to be able to autoboot to emuNAND.

    Yeah we see HBL and load Gateway and it loads back to homebrew.

    We formatted sysNAND first to unlink the sysNAND and emuNAND process. We installed menuhax on sysNAND, everything was going fine then Gateway boots back to homebrew for some reason.

    Did you install menuhax before or after you formatted sysNAND?

    After you load up Gateway, menuhax tells your system to boot back into the Homebrew Launcher because you didn't do anything to stop it from doing that. Go into the Homebrew Launcher, open menuhax_manager. There should be an option to configure the haxx trigger. Select that option and check the button configuration. It should tell you what button you need to press in order to bypass menuhax from loading up after you select the Gateway option in the Homebrew Menu.

    Well it's set to type 2 and holding R to boot to the regular home menu. Should I set it to something else? Is that what's causing the problem?

    Try to switch it to Type 1 then hold down R as you boot into Gateway.

    Thank you. That worked. Didn't even have to hold R to boot into Gateway
