I Keep reading online that 3ds's dying in gateway (emunand) causes brick..would it still happen even if the nands are seperated?


*Using gateways latest firmware update

What?
I had let my battery die, made the 3DS freeze by cleverly taking the SD card while in emunand, been playing with and without the GW card in (CIA), playing with and without power connected.
No brick ever.

That is pure bad luck..But it's still worth some effort to keep your battery healthy.

So why not turn it off cleanly, which is also way better for the battery itself unless this happens rarely?

It's true that you can brick many flash chips with integrated controller by removing power at the wrong time (mainly during a TRIM), but if it actually happens run to buy a lottery ticket!

have you tried taking out the sd card and blowing the slot? It happens to me but with a bit of air in the sd card slot it works.
