hey I got a problem here .. actually was a problem with a friend's one since mine didn't came yet ...
the thing is that when we try to boot gateway mode, it's say that no card are inserted, but it does õ3o maybe it's a defect on the card ?

Insert and eject the card a few times then try booting gateway mode. The metal pins on the card could be dirty, try cleaning them with an appropriate cleaning agent and a cotton swab.

they don't look dirty, but I tried and still the same :/ Retail games works normally

If GW is hiding then it must not want to be found.

Try the following.

1. Try with a normal game cart, just to make sure the problem is with the gateway.
2. Verify the gateway has the micro sd inserted
3. If the micro sd cart "IS" inserted and is yet not working, Clean the micro sd cart and gateway cart with at least 60% rubbing alcohol.
4. Reboot the 3ds.

5.optional repeat the above once more just to make sure

Well you said it's not your 3ds as normal carts work,can only be:

Dirty gold fingers on the micro SD or Gateway cart or either one of them is damaged.

Do you mean at the gateway launcher screen there's no card? Or once you've booted into Gateway mode (at Home screen)

Retail carts work under classic mode whereas if you actually wanna use your GW you're gonna have to go into Gateway mode

Provided you already know that, to access your GW you need to go into Gateway mode and hit select

If that's when it gives you that 'no card found' error then damn I really don't know. it's odd because if you were able to get into emuNAND at all then it must have detected your GW cart. so I'm thinking it's more a software issue than a hardware one. are you able to format emuNAND and then try?

I've tried with a "contact cleanner" product and still nothing

I can't even start the Gwmode to start it's first update o-o
Where's the launcher.dat file located?
Root of the 3DS SD

What I get is this:

I can assure the GWcard are on the 3DS with and microSD card in exFAT formatation :x

Seems like a faulty card then, it should detect the card at that stage. Best you can do is clean the contacts or attempt to get a replacement

dunno if this is entirely relevant but i once had a DS Lite that was OK playing retail games, everything worked, except it would never pick up my action replay

my other DS Lite detected it just fine as well as retail games

so it might not be the contacts of your card, could be the 3DS. have you tried it on another system? If it ends up working then you just wanna swap out the game cart slot on your 3DS which is actually pretty easy to do
