    Hey,

    So I have an Old 3DS XL that is currently on 9.2. I use a Gateway card to play my ROMs and occasionally install CIA's onto EmuNand. I use the go gateway browser hack to launch into Emunand.

    As I'm not overly interested in a CFW is there an easier way of me launching directly into Emunand so I don't have to go through the hassle of the web browser?

    Is there a way to do all this without losing any data?

    Thanks

    Look up Menuhax, you can probably find a decent guide in the forms for setting it up with gateway.

    This doesn't really make sense since pretty much anything with an emuNAND and added functions is a CFW :P

    Now to answer your question, yes there is, and without losing any data. At least if your NANDs are unlinked.

    Magic website: http://smealum.github.io/3ds/

    Use your browser to boot to homebrew menu (see magic website) and setup menuhax the way you want (I mean type 1 or type 2, splash or not, etc).
    Then, either replace the "boot.3dsx" file on your SD with the 3dsx file from Gateway (should be in the archive you got from Gateway) or replace it with a boot manager (CtrBootManager, BootCtr, use search functions if interested) and set it up to boot the Gateway 3dsx file.

    update your gateway launcher and use the included .3dsx file to launch gateway via menuhax

    Thanks all! Seems simple enough really. Hopefully I can get that done and it makes life easier
