    Ok I'm starting to get things rolling on the n3ds but where is the GW symbol before the version number and where is the muitrom menu it doesn't pop up? I know how to do everything on gateway I been using it for a while now. The emunand tool doesn't work because its 2gb big

    Please help

    Just ran a test on the card (and this thing has LED'S!!) it passed

    8.1 N3ds users warning! If you go into settings in emunand and change you NNID or Ds profile you Emunand will brick and will have BSOD! I took out the microsd card and it was working fine then I put the MicroSD back in launched Zelda Oot did the exploit then in the GW menu went to gateway mode screen flashed a BSOD again! Ok formatted microSD format emunand and update emunand again everything is fine deleted but fine. Just want everyone to know its best to stay away from settings altogether till gateway fixes the bugs and 8.1 support

    You can't just create a new emunand with the launcher.dat and then format the emunand?

    DEFINITELY not. If there's no GW before the version number and you update, say bye bye to exploitable Sysnand.

    Emunand is safe to update, but be careful not to update Sysnand by mistake.

    It is safe to update as in you can update if there is no GW as long as you are 100% sure you are on emunand. It's down to whether you feel confident in yourself that you're really in emunand.

    ABSOLUTELY WRONG! GW appears before the version string in settings menu ONLY if you are on emunand. If you don't have emunand setup, it will not display GW and you will be updating sysnand if you start the update. Do NOT update unless you see the GW at the start of the version string!

    OK so after going into gateway mode I cant go into mutirom or GW3D but when i put the sky3ds back in it doesn't show up so that means im in emunand right

    You guys are not getting it there is something wrong with 8.1 on gateway itself

    If you have to ask, you should probably wait until it gets fixed before you update.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    That isn't correct. It's a bug that the GW doesn't appear. See the Gateway 3.1.0 N3DS known bugs thread.

    stop worrying, i made a thread about this already, other people have 8.1 too, it is not just me who fixed it too :)
    yeah gw doesn't support 8.1 i guess, no problem, just update
    i couldn't update via settings, maybe my connection is bad

    so, just go to emunand, go to your homescreen close the 3ds, and the 9.5 update will download.
    when it is finished, you will get a message on the home screen to update. update, and you will be on 9.5, it will be ok.

    next time search :)

    i am not sure how long i had to wait for the update 'nag' to appear, but i left my 3ds alone for like an hour, maybe 30 minutes, but if you are NOT on 9.5, the update message will eventually appear.
    it worked perfectly for me :) weird that 8.1 is not supported very well, annoying because we cannot install CIAs in sysnand easily... but whatever :)
    i guess gw might update to fix 8.1 support, but it's good to update and use emunand anyway

    i don't really understand that part in bold - if you are certain you are in emunand (do something easy like make the icons different sizes in sysnand and emunand)
    also you can make sure you are in gw mode by seeing if your retail cart shows up on the home menu (because retail carts do not show up in gw mode)

    if you are sure you are in emunand, just let the system sleep on the home screen until it downloads the update in the background for you, once that is done you will see an update message :)
