    Hello. I've got an old 3ds still sitting on 4.2.0 + Gateway. I haven't touched the thing since probably around the time Awakening came out. I'm looking to get everything updated and be like the cool kids when Fates drops, but it seems like the scene has changed a ton since I last booted. What should I do to be ready? Thanks.

    Nice. Wouldn't mind GW autoboot. I tried following the guide included in the newest gateway firmware and it lost me talking about a theme menu (assuming 4.2 doesn't have it). No reason not to upgrade to 9.2? Not losing anything fun from 4.5? Thanks.

    Use sysupdater with rxtools (dev mode) to safely update to 9.2, Menuhax made a dream to reality by auto booting anything
