    Greetings Kind Sirs,

    i have a O3DS Gateway Cart/ Mode in Emunand 9.2, and i want to Update to a specific Emunand Firmware which is 11.2.0-35U

    i have always check tutorials before doing so, and got a little bit confused.
    anyway this are the steps i will do but need some guidance. thanks
    please bare with me since i a little bit off on type of Emunands and such..
    as i been using Gateway Cart/Mode since the beginning.


    1. i am using 3DSnus (from Dr-Hacknik:) to grab the 11.2.0-35U FW ,
    2. i downloaded 3DS Sysupdater 0.4.2 (from profi200) to update my Emunand 9.2.0-U to 11.2.0-35U
    3. these is where i got confused. ( i grab the Sysupdater 0.4.2 as .3dsx) which i know i can install it to the Gateway Cart SDCard and run it thru there.
    however profi200 mentioned

    IMPORTANT: Don't run this with any sort of firmware spoofing enabled like Gateway mode/rx mode/whatever or it will brick!
    NOTE: The 3dsx version requires extra permissions *hax alone can't provide. If possible use the CIA build


    He mentioned dont use Gateway Mode, which I am currently at and
    if Possible use CIA version. Which i only got sysUpdater.3dsx from profi200.

    my Questions are,
    Can i update my 3DS Gateway CFW to Other CFW? much prefer using Luma CFW.,. (how do i do that?)
    once in Luma CFW. how will i use SysUpdater.3dsx?? since .3dsx files can run only in Gateway Carts SDCards..


    thank you for the Help.

    How are you booting into Gateway mode now? If you are using A9LH then follow https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s
    If you are using menuhax then uninstall it (boot into sysNAND and change your theme) and follow https://3ds.guide from the beginning. If DS profile then follow https://3ds.guide from the beginning also (for both, on sysNAND not emuNAND and not in Gateway mode). Don't follow the Move emuNAND section - you will want to keep your emuNAND for use with Gateway (it is not safe to use on sysNAND).

    To use Gateway after this follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-gateway-on-b9s.431691/

    To update an emuNAND, if you can access Gateway mode, you can use a Poochy and Yoshi rom. Just boot into the Gateway menu (hold L when booting it) and hold Up on the D-pad while selecting the option to boot into Gateway mode (this disables rom update blocking). You don't have to use sysupdater.

    Hi, Thanks for Fast Reply...
    i am booting Gateway mode by Gateway Carts (The Old Style).. i dont have A9LH or B9s btw.
    i dont have Menuhax as well.
    I dont have Poochy nor a Yoshi Cart if you are saying updating to Carts. (Can i use a Yoshi cia or yoshi.3ds? not sure how to update from .cia or .3ds)

    my SysNand is 4.5.0 and my Emunand is 9.2.0
    thank you

    I usually use BigBlueMenu (either the .3ds format put in GW card or use the .cia version) to update GW emunand to specific version

    Yep. Download system update files with 3DNUS, pack as CIA and put them in 1 directory in the 3ds SD card
    Then run emunand, open BBB and install all CIAs from that directory

    Hey thanks Looks like i got it.

    i got two Methods,


    First Method (simpler)
    1. Enter emunand while holding DPAD UP. Select the rom containing the update and when apply the update when prompted. (Yoshi rom)

    Second Method
    1) Download 3DNUS - https://gbatemp.net/threads/3dnus.376488/ and launch it.
    2) For title ID, input "9.5.0-23", for version, it's either "USA", "EUR" or "JPN" depending on your region.
    3) Make sure "pack as cia" is selected and press "Download".
    4) After everything is finished there should be a folder called "9.5.0-23". Copy that folder to your SD card.
    5) Boot to emuNAND, then start BigBlueMenu from the gateway multi-rom menu or just launch it from the home menu if you already have it. Then go to the "9.5.0-23" folder.
    6) Select any .cia file and press L+R+A to import all cia files in that folder.
    7) Reboot.
    8) Check your emuNAND system settings for the version.
    9) Yay.


    All thanks to this Link.

    to Quantumcat and Garou.

    i am not sure why 3DS SysUpdater was made for if the BigblueMenu can do it already?,
    hmm maybe for other purposes i guess..

    If you are going to install firmware cias it is very important to use sysupdater or another app that is intended for installing them. Otherwise they may not get installed properly and your system will brick (not so bad if it's on emuNAND, but still, you'll lose all your data).
