    So, with all the kerfuffle over at the other threads, I thought a quick and easy poll might give some idea of the rate of success to failure.

    Vote for whether you have had problems with new firmware or not.

    EmuNAND works fine, but does Home-saving cause a loop for anyone else when on an updated EmuNAND? Currently only tested TLoZ:ALBW.

    Edit: Yep, that issue seems prevalent.

    Well, good to know it works for most people.

    From reading the other thread, it appeared to be mostly doom and gloom.

    I'm experiencing two problems:

    The first and the least relevant: If I boot GW GUI on 2D and then change the slider to 3D, the GUI displays a dual screen, having one side displaying the GW logo and the other side displaying the typical grey screen with the hour, etc that is shown before the GUI boots.

    The other is that I can't use neither of the hacks of GW (GW/CLassing) two times on the same power cycle. At the second attempt, it always fails: Displays the same grey screen described above on 2D, doesn't change if the slider is moved to 3D (both sides displaying the same thing), so it simply gets stuck with the background music playing and the only thing left to do is performing a hard reset.

    It seems to only work when it wants to... I tried after first formatting emuNAND and it worked, tried twice after that and just grey lines and now it's worked 3 times in a row without ever turning the power off.

    Can't seem to play Pokemon Y in classic mode, tells me my save is corrupt yet my 6.3 3DS reads it fine.

    Already mentioned this in the 2.0 Released thread, but anyway..
    So I already have the NAND dumping hardware mod, and I wanted to try out this 2.0 beta firmware on my gateway. I have a big problem. I can not get Pokemon X to load my existing save game at all using Gateway. I was using Classic mode and didn't go back into settings (as this reverts to physical NAND). When I run the game I get a screen that says my game save is corrupt. I then saved my Physical NAND to my PC and flashed back regular 6.3 to my 3DS. Opened up Pokemon X and.. it loaded my existing save (thank god!).
    Anyway, just a heads up to everyone else who might encounter this

    Same issue, Home Close not working on Zelda, Just hangs, In both Gateway modes (With and without EmuNAND), Is the save data actually created when you click New and give name etc or must it be saved for a first time ?? As I just exited after a couple of minutes

    Seems only time this hasnt happened is when someone tried with a brand new cart, seems regardless, except eshop, Pokemon and ACNL are a no go still. Maybe GW Team should add something to main site so people dont corrupt their Retail saves

    Yep, same here. It's been stuck on 'closing software' for 30mins now. Checked the SD card, no new saves. 2 hours of playtime gone. :/

    It all works, but hangs pretty regularly and/or is slow to respond.
    The worst one is the not saving though because there's nothing i can do about it.

    For those of you having issues with it getting stuck on closing software, what sd card are you using? I'm using an 8gb Transcend class 10 and it works fine.

    Works pretty much fine here. Occasional grey screen, seems more prevalent if I boot without using GUI.

    Other than that, no problems. Updated Emunand, currently playing Zelda, home+X is fine, no freezes. No save issues.

    I've gotten to the second dungeon in lorule and have saved several times without issue. I do save in game and then exit to the game menu before i press home though.

    Don't know if this has been reported before, but in 1.2 I got those gray striped screen too.
    Sometimes they made my 3ds crash, and sometimes it succesfully went into gateway mode anyways.
