    Hi.
    Since I updated again A9LH (v3 ?) my Gateway is not working anymore.
    Actually I can access the Gteway menu, but when I try to launch the Gateway mode, I have just a black screen.
    It's not a random black screen because I tried many times.

    It worked before on A9LH v2, using an ARM9 payload of CtrBootManager, launching itself the Gateway's ARM9 payload.
    My folder is like that:
    [​IMG]

    My setup is a N3DSXL 11.2EUR using Luma3DS (latest stable release from Github) with A9LH update using this.

    I need to use and do some gateshark codes, any help is appreciated ;)

    I'm gonna go on a limb and say rename the GW file to Right_gateway.bin, and hold right on the dpad on boot. Judging by your payloads, it is not assigned to a button.

    No that file does not need to be renamed.

    Try to set up BootCTR9 and boot it from there.

    "using an ARM9 payload of CtrBootManager, launching itself the Gateway's ARM9 payload."
    ;)
    I don't have to launch the gateway's payload myself.
    I launch CtrBootManager with Up (as you can see) and it launch it self the gateway's payload (the path is hardcoded to load gateway.bin from the payload folder).

    I actually just used this guide after i update my A9LH to v4 several days ago and can boot to gw without problem.

    @Asia81 go to private tester page on gw and download their arm9loaderhax and put it in the payload folder in luma,them rename the file from that thread and also put it in luma payload folder.

    I didn't even realise there is a v4. Is there a way to know what has changed?

    The versions are unofficially numbered, but the only difference from v3 is that v4 attempted to reduce OTPless bricks. Otherwise, it's not different at all.

    Hmm, mine only has the one file with the input in the name and I just hold it to boot.

    Well, following the guide that was linked earlier has both the gateway.bin file and the .bin file that you name with the button to boot into.

    They are using bootarm9 or whatever its called. Maybe their script is pointing at the wrong one

    Edit

    I just reread the op again and if they boot into the GW menu it means every on the software side is working. Not being able to boot past that sounds like a red card issues

    See i don't know what otp a9hl I'm using, I know its working with one i have with the link i posted i just not sure about v4 or whatever the newest is.

    I corrected myself by saying i know that it's working because op can get the gw menu

    He said it was working before updating A9LH version,so it's not launcher.dat

    Old launcher.dat will still make you boot to GW,but select menu won't work.

    Try using Launcher9 https://github.com/kasai07/Launcher9
    I boot launcher9 with button Y, so that I have a GUI to select any arm9 payload I want, instead of forgetting which keys I set.
