    I have just recently gotten my hands on sky3ds and gateway3ds and set up an emunand. Everything works fine with my New 3ds XL including MSET downgrade. The only problem is that the included 4GB microSD card that came with n3ds has its capacity decreased to 1.63GB after I formatted the card in Gateway menu. I have tried this on another 4GB microSD and it occurred again. I tried to format the cards in Windows and could not get the lost capacity back. How do I make the cards return to the old capacity? This is a problem as I cannot dump my cartridges to the cards because not enough space left.

    Another question is how do I exit the Gateway menu? I have to press power button to restart the console but that seems dumb.

    Last question, is there any way to enter the Gateway menu from sysnand without using Ninjihax? (through sky3ds)

    When you format your internal SD card for gateway, it creates a partition dedicated to emuNAND.

    So the microSD card will be unusable for ROMs dumping as the space will not be enough? Can I at least reformat the size to the old 4GB, so that I can use another card that I formatted for other uses?
