    It's wierd, when it says GW4.2.x it mostly is because you are in gw emunand and the emunand version is 4.2.x

    I should check again, if it doesn't say GW9.4.0.21.x, then it mostly means you are not on that emunand version (but i could be wrong :P )

    Your update did not complete correctly, you need to update your emunand again... then it will show as GW 9.4.xxxx

    The actual version number is one of the last (if not the last?) things that's installed during an update. If it somehow stops an update partway through, it's possible to have new menu features such as themes, but have a lower version number. The only fix is by just updating the emunand again until it updates every part of the system.

    For as far as i know Classic mode is there to go online and use eShop and retail games and update emunand, to emulate an as clean as possible nand (that's why homebrew, cia's and GW multigame selector don't work
    GW mode is Homebrew, installing cia's, playing those insatlled cia's and pop-up the GW multigame selector to play 3ds games from SD. All those things don't work in classic mode

    But i never tried it in GW mode, cause i've been always told to do it in Classic mode to be safe; so i could be wrong about all that :)

    Nah bro. If EmuNand is formatted. Both Classic Mode & GW Mode boots EmuNand. So both modes are safe if you're intending to update your EmuNand. But make sure you haven't missed Formatting EmuNand.

    Question for you all.. If I want to switch over to a new SD card... How do I go about this? I mean the BIG SD card that goes inside the 3DS?

    I cant simply copy the files over to the new one and start using it correct? Because when I put it in my computer, it says GatewayNAND...

    So what am I supposed to do?

    No, just copying everything is not enough. I'm not entirely sure, but you will at least need to extract the emuNAND from the old SD using emunand tool, inject it into the new one, then copy everything over. Not sure if there are any additional steps you need to do.

    That's just about right.

    Using a new SD card format an emunand from the the gateway menu. Remove sd card and then inject old emunand into the new one using the emunand tool. Then copy the folders over to the new card.
