    System: O3ds
    Firmare: 4.1 U never downgraded. Just an old 3ds I had lying around. I wanted to mod this for my nephew since hes getting into gaming.

    I was following the the 3ds.guide. When it came to move the emunand, i never made one. I tried to boot up gateway to create one but it just freezes my bottom 3ds screen whenever i try regardless of the website I use to launch it. Also my 3ds will not boot up without my SD card inserted. Is there a way I can create a Emunand or at least make my 3ds boot up without the sd cart? I have godmode and can boot up Luma settings when i hold select during power up.

    I have no idea why you would create an EmuNAND, there's no need for that anymore, let alone using Gateway.
    You have to copy to boot.firm to the CTRNAND in order to boot the console without a SD card.

    That is an optional section for people that have an emuNAND. You don't have one, so don't follow that section.

    At least you have a NAND backup right? Can you load GodMode9?

    why create an emunand if you are not going to be screwing with nand files?

    Please Dowload Luma fresh from the Internet, from the size of the Boot.firm it seems to be corrupted it should be bigger than 80kb around 143kb

    You are actually right i thought the Luma 7 had the same size , so my bad His version is fine

    so he can boot Luma settings but the 3ds doesn't start up after ?

    Black Screen ?

    to make it Possible too boot 3ds without SD Card it needs to copy Luma boot.firm to the System Nand than it can boot without Sd Card inserted.

    He's gotta figure it out himself. The only good option here is to go over the guide again, step by step, and not skip any like OP has done
