    I... just... why.
    Why did you even consider installing Brickway a9lh. BRICKway.
    Good luck and have fun with that. Brickway made sure to block any and all homebrew tools with a9lh. There's a workaround I believe but it's annoying and very time-consuming.

    You're gonna have to restore a NAND backup and install A9LH using plailect's guide. You will have to boot GW through Menuhax instead if you want to use your GW card.

    I don't even think you can do a restore.

    @Cenk Akbaba You do need to flash your NAND back. Yes, with a standard a9lh install (you must use a screen init version, and also make sure you aren't installing a9lh v2), you can chainload GW's arm9loaderhax.bin through Luma3DS. I name my GW arm9loaderhax.bin file: luma\payloads\down_Gateway.bin. When I power on with nothing pressed, I boot into Luma. When I hold Down on power-on, I boot into GW. Simple.

    In all actuality, I hope you made a backup of your working 2.1 sysnand, because you need to back there and get your OTP.bin if you didn't already. Using only GW stuff, you didn't get that file. Follow Plailect's guide and remember that you can use emunand everywhere it mentions rednand.

    Your emuNAND should be safe.

    Install A9LH the conventional way and use Gateway's arm9loaderhax.bin when you want to use Gateway. You get the best of both worlds.
