    Without knowing which firmware you have it's kinda hard to give you advice. Assuming you don't have CFW installed yet, don't update to the latest version!
    Follow 3ds.guide and see if you can get Boot9Strap and Luma3DS installed. I don't think there's really an advantage to having a Gateway anymore, but some people still use them so they might be able to give better advice. Nowadays most people just install whatever they want to play directly to their home menu using CIA installers like FBI, or they use FreeShop.
