    I just updated my sons 2DS with the new gateway files and my first time using menuhax. I have it coldbooting into gateway emunand which is great. He is turning 5 soon and i hated the idea of needing the online exploit for him. This offline cold boot method is so much better.

    I now want my o3ds to be the same. I started by trying to update my 4.5 sysnand to 9.2 using the hold up to boot gateway and then using the super smash bros rom to install 9.2 update. It looked like it worked fine, but now i have a black screen on boot... What can i do?

    From what I understand, updating via classic mode will brick your device. You should have used sysupdater via rxtools pasta mode.

    Your only choice now is to restore your NAND backup via a hard mod, which requires opening up the device and soldering some things to connect your NAND flash memory to an SD card.

    Then you bricked you will need a hard mod and a copy of that specific 3DS's NAND back from when it was on 9.2 or lower

    To be fair the info is pretty public to not update a 3DS while using Gateway

    OK. I have my hard mod installed and it seems to be working. I am able to read the nand. When i try to write the sysnand backup i made with gateway, its says something about not enough space...

    ok make sure you don't format your nand try running win32diskimager as an admin and write your nand.bin while you have BSOD.

    Think you can post a picture of what you are getting? Also does your PC or USB adapter support MMC?

    The only things I can think of is you either don't have an MMC reader, the SD adapter is not compatible or you have the SD adapter set to "locked" with the switch on this side thus you can read but not write.

    Since windows sees it, it's likely to be the lock switch issue..
    (he may have to solder the lock pins on his SD adapter together depending on how he made his sd adapter)

    Its writing! It was the lock tab. The little tab fell out when i pulled the adapter apart. Taped into place and now it seems to be working.

    Good job you will find having a NAND mod is god send you should upload your 4.5 NAND backup somewhere online like Megaupload privately so you never lose it glad we could help you out.
