    I recently bought a brand new 3ds xl on 4.1 firmware and a gateway 3ds card and i installed the newest gateway 3.0.4 , backed up my nand , formated emunand and everything went well .

    Now im trying too update the emunand so i can play newer games and EVERY single time i boot into gateway and go too update firmware it starts attempting to update then it stops after 5 seconds and says
    ""An update error has occured. Unable to update"" The system will now be restarted

    I have tried over 20 times for 2 days , i tried formatting SD card and reinstalling gateway and reformatting micro sd and today i even tried 2 different kinds of SD cards both high quality and nothing.

    Can anyone please help? i would be greatly appreciative

    I think you need to be on 4.5 but don't quote me on that

    It might actually be a problem with your wifi chip, open that bad boy up unplug the wifi chip and plug it back in, ive had to do this on both my xl and my regular 3ds apparently it just wiggles loose and causes the exact error that youve just described. (look up a tutorial before you just start digging around inside your console though, duh)
