    Is it possible to launch Pasta CFW from Gateway EmuNAND and if so how?

    Why would anyone want to do that anyway? I'll post why later so as not to detract from the question.

    Cheers

    Have a cia install of old ironhax or cubic ninja with the hax exploit linked inside.
    You can use this to boot you into the homebrewmenu to launch pastacfw, or more simply use CtrBootManager's boot.3dsx instead of the homebrewmenu boot.3dsx to launch a CFW more directly and with greater compatability than 2.5 HBmenu alone.

    If you told us WHY you want to do this it'd be easier to give a route more tailored to your specific needs.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Is there some way to have a CIA that launches Pasta CFW as soon as I tap its icon?

    Probably, but I don't understand why this would be necessary for your setup.
    If you're in a CFW that can already run unsigned code why would you want to chain yourself into a second CFW?

    Again, if you told us WHY you want to do this it'd be easier to give a route more tailored to your specific needs.

    Why don't you just install a Cubic Ninja cia in sysnand and use PastaCFW from there?

    PstaCFW will always boot into sysnand, so if your intention is install it in emunand so you can use it in emunand it won't be possible.

    Anyways if you have updated emunand you can't neither because the kernel it's patched in your updated emunand.

    You must remember that GW used the latest firm launch in their emunand so when you HBL it will run with 9.6+ firm making pasta not run. What you need to do if you boot through mset is update to 9.0-9.2 and use menuhax to direct boot into Pasta.

    IMOP thats the easiest

    This only works with n3ds, o3ds mset doesn't work with GW

    O3ds you should autoboot into pasta then use the web exploit

    Well what I would prefer is to be able to chose between Gateway EmuNAND and Pasta CFW after turning on the system, but I don't think there's anything around yet that can do that. I want to be able to play GBA games using the new AGM_firm patch on N3DS (which needs Pasta CFW apparently).

    I don't know if the gateway launcher is supported, but rxtools can run gateway emunand just fine, and you can use CtrBootManager booting from the homemenuhax(themehax)2.5 exploit to let you choose between rxtools, homebrewmenu 2.5, or pastacfw to launch.

    Install homemenuhax, install CtrBootManager, use it to boot into whatever you need.

    There is an easier way, set up Menuhax with ctrbootmanager and use that to launch rxTools into sysnand. That way you don't even need to install the patched AGB Firm because is not needed with rxTools anymore.

    Agreed, this is a better setup.

    It's possible to launch the gateway mode from pasta, but not the opposite.

    And this will work on N3DS with rxtools?

    The only thing I can think of with N3ds is that they can't update emunand to the latest version, but I don't think that should be any issue.

    Lol, I think that got lost in the busy thread. Sounds perfect. I'll go read about how to do this

    You can't update emunand above 9.5 with Gateway neither...
