    I'm sorry guys, I try my best to not be noobish, but this 3DS scene is really making me tear my hair out.

    I have an old launch O3DS that is stock aside from the mset exploit from when I used a Gateway card. The gateway is now in the Mrs 3DS-XL (but that's a different story).

    Could anyone point me towards the best guide in my situation? Ideally I'm just wanting to install emunand (latest if possible) and install CIA files directly to the internal SD card.

    EDIT: Just to add, this 3DS has the ambassador games on it, and would ideally like to keep these.


    Guess this seems to be the most recent, would you recommend?

    I recommend the guide you have posted, by the way if you want a more outdated, but still working system follow the guide to part three. Or if you want the best of the best follow it all the way through.

    Thank you for the response.

    Might I ask another probably stupid question? In regards to the Gateway card, is there any actual benefit to the wife still using it, or should I just do the hack with her 3DS also?

    OK, so I have hit a stumbling block.

    On part 3 of the guide step 24. When I enter into system setting I don't see "emu" which implies I'm in sysnand. I followed the entire process again, and still same problem.

    I'm assuming that by launching "rednand" it's asking me to launch Luma again, whilst making sure "Show current NAND in System Settings" is checked and pressing start.

    I have tried an older version of Luma as recommended in another thread, but still same issue.

    Ok so it turns out I was being stupid.

    When launching Luma the screen was turning black for a good 10 seconds or so. I was assuming that this was freezing, turns out it wasn't and had to wait nearly a minute for the boot. Everything is now working fine and I'm enjoying a fully hacked O3DS.

    A huge thank you to @iAqua for taking the time to reply, and all devs involved in creating this awesome software.

    In same boat as OP o3DS EU 4.5. Has much changed in the last few months or is this still the most up to date guide to follow?
