Hey guys, so I'm trying to get my gateway flashcart working. So far every game I want to plays seems to work fine but apparently I need 7.2+ firmware to play Majoras Mask.

I can't figure out how to update to 9.2, I tried looking around but can't really figure it out. Can anyone help me out?

Also, do I need to use my blue gateway card to update? It doesn't seem to be working properly it keeps giving me an error no matter what microSD I use with it / how I format it

Thanks guys.

You don't need to update your SYSnand. Just set up and update your EMUnand in order to play Majora's Mask.

How do I do that? Sorry, probably a noob question I'm terrible at this stuff. Just want to play some zelda haha

If you have already backed up your sysnand to your computer,You need to insert a blank sd card with the launcher.dat into your 3ds. You just need to go to the gateway menu and select format emunand. When its done formatting, access emunand by booting gateway mode. Go to settings while in emunand. If it says GW 6.2xx then you are in emunand and its safe to update it to the latest version. If it doesn't then don't update.

I suggest you follow the tutorial outlined on the gateway site. It's about half way down this page :http://www.gateway-3ds.com/downloads/ (tutorials and documentation.)


It carefully steps through the activities required to configure your emunand.
It also steps through all the risks at each step. If you're not careful you could ruin* your sysnand. Be extra diligent.


** Ruin as in update your sysnand to 9.5... and not be able to gateway.

    Sometimes even porn bores you. I remember when I was a kid, they has a Co. that would make books with your name in the story to keep you entertained, and deliver them to you r house. We need a interactive porn video with us inside the video, like her saying "Yea Ken, spank my ass" kinda shit. As a siloute of "Ken" shows in the foreground.

    I love that analogy

    People are too closed in over the idea of blood is blood I believe people are people and you can choose the ones you want to be around easily
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Ofcourse you can choose, but Family is bond, no matter, you have to go out of your way for family. Golden rule. "You can choose your friends, but unfortunately, you can cannot choose your family"
