Gateway works fine except updating to GWD 7.1 (Guide outdated?)

    Recently I got a Gateway 3DS and everything worked fine by following the guide here on GBATemp. This because I didn't go into the optional part of formatting and updating.

    Today however I've tried to see what the eShop is all about and such so I had tried to update. I did make clear I saw GW3D at the version before going through the 5-10 minute update.

    Afterwards however going through the Profile > Nintendo DS Profile to boot in Gateway mode... I got a black screen. (Also if I held the L button.)

    I've went through the whole formatting of my whole DS back to factory settings + run a retail game once and formatting the SD card to redo the whole Gateway setup which again worked flawlessly. So I'm back at 4.5.

    This is fine and all because I'll just stick to the games I have and wait for a new release of Gateway. But I was wondering why it doesn't work. By any chance is it because the 3DS official firmware is on 8.0 and not on 7.1 anymore? It would be nice if this was stated somewhere on the guide.

    Many thanks in advance if anyone can clearify this! =)

    You can't use emunand to acces to eshop any more after the 7.2 update, you need to wait for an update from gateway

    8.0 doesnt work as emunand due to nintendo encrypting parts of the firmware, so currently there is no way to update the emunand firmware without hardware modding the 3ds(still only limits you to 5.x-7.x emunand)....and even then its fairly pointless as you still cant access eshop unless your on the latest firmware i.e 8.x so until gateway release this promised fix for 7.x encryption which would fix 8.x booting in emunand you will be stuck on whatever emunand you have already

    First thanks for the fast replies! =)

    Ok, I understand. Then I'll stick with 4.5 for now. No problem.

    Nice way to work in a plug for a shop, but wrong thread; you answered a question her/she never asked. The question was about emunand.
