    Hi
    i have some serious problems.
    i dont know what is nand and all those things
    but i will try to tell you whats happend.

    i had a 3DS xl on 9.2 firmware
    then i run gateway ultra exploit.
    and downgrade to 4.2
    i followed the guid.
    i use ds flash card and installed gateway (on my 4.2 3DS)
    and do what the guide says to install cfw:
    do things with these programs:
    Emunand tool and the drag emunand here file.
    then i installed palantine cfw and installed dev menu.
    i have some problems:
    cfw sometimes wont boot.
    system crash.
    system dont boot
    and the biggest problem:
    all my installed CIA games and the dev menu are gone like i never installed them.
    i fix this when i delete everything from the SD card,and again put the CfW files in my SD card and istall dev menu again.
    but its happening again and again!.
    3rd time already!
    Am I doing something Wrong?
    I read that i cant run CFW on My systemNand and i need to use Emunand?
    do i Need to do something with it?
    please tell me how to fix it
    and why there is only 2GB on my 4GB CARD?
    is it the EMunand tool cause that?

    For CIA disappearing, maybe your emunand and your sysnand are linked and you tryed to manage titles in sysnand (or lauching them).

    For CFW don't booting sometimes and installed CIA don't working on sysnand, it's normal.

    first of all, start reading the topic and tutorials over here, everything you said is explained ;). And when installing .cia you better know what you are doing before you mess up your sysnand.

    first of all:
    If you have a gateway, there is no need to install a cfw, just don do it as it lacks a lot of support.

    secondly:
    CFW is very unstable and its normal it only boots 1 out of x times , there is nothing you can do about that. Also, only start your installed titles from the cfw, and not from sysnand. Last but not least: don´t enter the data management, as it will delete all your ´illigal´ installed .cia titles ;).

    I don't think he has a GW cart. He never stated this. He said that he used GW sw to downgrade the 3DS, that can be done without the cart.

    thank you

    the problem was that i entered data managment while not in cfw mode.
    the person who write the guide wasnt mention that.
    all the firmware stuck things are just because of the SD card,it was my very old camera and he causes the problems.

    You can format your console and you won't have this problem anymore.
