    In the Gateway manual, on page 15, it says that they suggest installing CIAs to Emunand, not Sysnand cos that could go wrong.

    On some other well known site, people are saying you can't install CIAs to Emunand and you have to install to Sysnand then make a new Emunand.

    These two things seem to contradict, but both were published very recently. What's the real deal?

    Cheers

    BigBlueBox doesn't exist (and if you means Big Blue Menu, it's illegal).

    Menu/Box, you know what I meant :). Are the 3DS police going to arrest you, c'mon now.

    You can use Big blue menu(illegal) or big red menu to install CIAS on sysnand, but a broken/corrupt/interupted install can corrupt your Sysnand and brik your 3DS, Only bundled CIA's will work on sysnand withouth gateway/other signature hack
