    Good day all I recently bought a Gateway Card and ran the exploit and everything but when I try booting games whenever it reaches the part where save data s being created it just results in an error, I am running firmware 4.3 btw

    While running the exploit keep holding L shoulder button until it enters Gateway Mode, select Diagnostic Test. If there is some error, especially SPI fail test then it could be a faulty GW red cart. Diagnostic Test also clears the save chip, so give a try saving the game again after doing this anyway.

    I have tried with an 8gb and a 4gb and no dice despite there being nothing else on them, are the save files really that big?

    Also the game I am trying is Ocarina of Time 3D

    As a side note I have ordered some class 10 sd cards to see if they make a difference, should be getting them soon
