I was going through the process of getting my Gateway saves on my now homebred O3DS when I had this problem.

I booted into Gateway mode holding up while booting then the O3DS turned black and stayed at that for some minutes. I then booted up to try to repeat the process, but the up button shortcut wouldn't go. After that I turned of, tried it again. No luck

"Good grief, I guess I lost my saves now, I can't get to my GW. Guess I'll just play in the Homebrew now. Go bother", I thought. I tried to start one of my CIA installed games, only to be surprised with a message saying that the application won't boot, and I'd need to install it again from the eShop.

I found a backup I had and put in the SD to restore it with GodMode9. Booted with the START pressed. Nothing. The console booted as I haven't pressed the button, the same as the GW boot.

Now I have this O3DS, running 11.6.0-39U, updated through Homebrew, functioning to God-knows-what extent and without a way to restore it using GM9 as far as I know.

Edit: as of now, my 3DS doesn't display any app installed through Homebrew, it looks just like a vanilla one

Edit 2: Found both a "9.2.0-20U_ctrtransfer_o3ds.bin" and a "170922_CW41906219_sysnand_000.bin" that can be a backup. I don't know which would be the one I should use. The former is a little smaller

170922_CW41906219_sysnand_000.bin likely is a more recent GM9 Backup, wait for others versed with Gateway useage to reply it *could* be possible to recover your saves, so just wait for someone to reply,

I don't care that much about the saves to be honest now. I am much more up to getting the Homebrew back. The saves would be a plus, but a far for necessary one

if you have your Gateway Blue card (i guess some came w/ the Blue card (which is the DS Mode component) or a compatible DS Mode flashcart, there's NTRBoothax (not to be confused w/ the Plugin /cheat system NTR CFW/launcher "Boot NTR"), but if your able to Load A9LH Payloads at this stage, then you can run the B9Sinstaller, https://3ds.hacks.guide/a9lh-to-b9s again not sure about how Gateway's A9LH's implementation will be, *Should* be fine. after setting up B9S, you'll want Luma 9.1

if you have a SD Rwader and dont rely on a hacked Micro SD Management/FTP Server, try renaming the installer to arm9loaderhax.bin
What would be a SD Rwader?

I checked the SD card and the file was already listed as "arm9loaderhax.bin"

Hold Select before pressing power and continue holding Select. What happens?
Nothing. It boots up as usual
