    Hi,
    I recently bought a gateway for my 3ds. I set it up fine, was able to set up emunand and such. The problem is I'm on 4.5, so my emunand is at 4.5 too and I can't play any new games. I updated my emunand via software update option in settings. And when I enter the gateway menu and choose to boot gateway mode, it just hangs on a blackscreen. If I choose to format emunand (which takes my emunand back to 4.5) I can boot gateway mode.
    I want to update my emunand to play ORAS.

    Btw, I have a copy of SuperSmash, how can I update my emunand with the original (real card) game?

    Any help?
    Thanks

    Emunand doesn't support 9.6 yet. So you should update Emunand with a game.

    How do I? I tried classic mode to run my SSB game to update, but the update prompt doesn't show up. Instead it tries to boot the game, which doesn't work and just freezes.

    Btw, Thanks for the fast reply

    Press and hold the D-pad up when booting gateway. This will let you update your emunand from the smash cart. Smash is 8.1. I used a rom of "Code Name S.T.E.A.M." to update to 9.4. This let me use themes to let me know if I am in sysnand or emunand(white and black).

    Thanks, I was able to update from my SSB cart ( by holding UP while booting classic). Can I update from ROM if I hold UP while booting (normal) GatewayMode?
    Thanks

    EDIT: Btw, I found out Bravely Default surpasses the 4gb limit of FAT32 format. How can I get around this?

    Format the micro sd card with exFAT instead. This is in the gateway manual.

    Thanks. I also noticed gateway has a rom splitter. I tried it and it seems to have worked.
    Thanks anyway guyz!
