Hi everyone I use to look a lot to this forum but never really write on it so Im quite new.

I just order the gateway for my eu 9.2 3ds and I have soooo many questions about how to do after getting it

First of all I dont look for downgrade my 3ds to 4.5 if because the chance of brick, if you really think I should do it please explain me why cause I dont mind to open the browser everytime I wanna get into the gateway mode.

Well now I will ask you some really noob questions about the flashcard.

1- Once I get the flashcard can I updated it to 3.0.1 Ultra with my 3ds 9.2eu?

2- After updating it, can I play any game I put in the flashcard?

3- I know whats emunand but I dont really know how to emulate any firmware, there is any tutorial about it? <------------------- Found already a tutorial so I dont need one thanks anyway to everyone

4- Do I need to be careful with silent updates or something like that if I dont downgrade?

5- Can I play online with the games I put in the flashcard?

6- Can I use the store with the emunand?

If there is any tip I should care to put more security to my 3ds like things to stop nintendo updates or things I should not do to dont fuck it up updating it by error I would really apreciate that

Sorry for my bad english Im spanish so I could write wrong or in a weird way lots of things haha

And thanks everyone hope you can help me :D

Hey Man,

Thought I'd try to help you out as I was in the same situation as you recently.

To start off your going to want to take the launcher file that comes in the download from 3.0.1 and copy it to your big SD Card inside the 3ds.
Backup your SD card to your PC!
Configure your wifi settings but do not turn wifi on yet. Go to your browser, go into bookmarks. Modify one of your bookmarks to link to gateway's exploit website. Rename the bookmark to gateway launcher or something.

When you are ready, turn your Wifi on and press the bookmark that you made. Try not to leave your Wifi on for long periods of time so that you can avoid "update nags".
This should take you to gateway menu.
Press "Format Emunand". It will format your SD Card and will take a few minutes.
Then Make a "NAND Backup". This will also take a few minutes. Turn off your system.
Take out your SD Card and put it in your PC. Backup the Nand File that was created and put it in a safe place.
Copy your SD Card Backup back to your SD Card.
Put the SD Card back into your 3ds.
Now launch the Gateway exploit again. Press "Boot Gateway Mode".
It will try to update your gateway cart. Press yes and make sure the AC adaptor is plugged in.
This is EMUNAND. This is where you can do the fun stuff safely without messing up your system.
Proceed to update your Emunand by going to system settings. Ensure that it says "GW3DS" in front of your system version. Do not leave system Settings as this will kick you out of Emunand. Do not update via Cart or Rom. Update System through System Settings.
When it's done it should kick you back to System Nand.
In System Nand run the exploit again. This time it should boot straight into Emunand and it should be the latest version.
Press Select on the empty cart and it should show a list of your games.

--------------------------
The only real benefit of downgrading to 4.5 is that you do not need to be online to use the exploit.
You will not be able to use most of your save games from sysnand 9 after downgrading unless gateway come up with a solution.
For now id sit tight on 9.2 until gateway issue a fix\leave beta.

Good Luck Man!

1.yes
2.yes. I have not found one that doesn't work yet.
3. Yes. But Nintendo just downloads the software, you have to install it.
4. Yes. 3dz or cia files can go online
5. Eshop? Yes, if emunand is on 9.4.

Backup nands, backup nands, backup nands. Do not leave it in sleep mode if in sysnand, just power it down. Turn off Spotpass streetpass or whatever that stuff is called.

Read, read, read tutorials.

Oh Yeah, Yes you can play games online as long as they are .3dz. You can access the eshop under Emunand. As far as I know the system cannot be updated without your consent.

Excellent post. I would add get emunand tool to make a backup of emunand right after it has been created and another one after it has been updated.

Thanks Man, I signed up just to write it. Long time reader of gbatemp haha.
Yeah that's a good point, Worth noting that an emunand backup is important as well.

Yes It Can :) Plays perfectly but you must do the updates & DLC with .CIA files.

Won't this format your SysNAND as well?
Nope, It will not. I'm talking about the "Format Emunand" Option in the Gateway Menu which is accessed after launching the exploit.
It essentially formats your SD Card and then makes a clone of sysnand onto your SD Card.

But isn't the SysNAND and my downloaded data saved on the SD Card as well? So shouldn't I backup this stuff before?

This is why I mention "To start off your going to want to take the launcher file that comes in the download from 3.0.1 and copy it to your big SD Card inside the 3ds.
Backup your SD card to your PC!"
