    Hello everyone, I have received my 3DS XL FW: 4.2.0-9
    I have installed the GW_INSTALLER with the Blue linker and the Launcher.dat in the SD card of the 3DS, but when I try to launch the GW mode in profile, the screen freeze for infinite time and I need to push the button power to relaunch my 3DS.

    What is the problem ?

    sometimes it happens to me too, just turn of and try again, sometimes it has taken me 4 attempts... :) (using 2.0b1) but it is worth it.

    i don't need to push the L button (using 2.0b1). i CAN, if i want to dump nand, etc, but i don't.
    if i press L, gateway mode will boot every time? (because, at the moment, sometimes the 3ds freezes when i try to load the exploit)

    when you press L, you see a menu. in the menu, you can dump your 3DS nand and create an emunand partition, you can test the gateway card, ... and i forget :)

    but if you do not hold L, you still enter GW mode :)

    If you're using the b2 launcher, beware of running the diagnostic test from the Gateway menu when holding L, as this has been confirmed to have a higher chance of rendering your console useless (i.e. brick).

    My 3DS seems to behave like that roughly half the time, nothing to worry about.
