    So its been a while since i updated my gateway cart for my New3DS. I wanted to update the emunand jic i needed to for FFexplores, so i did what i thought was all you had to do which is replace the launcher.dat file on the internal SD card. Now when i got to the NDS profile it just goes to the settings.

    Did i miss something or do something wrong? I formatted my internal SD and put all my files back on but its still the same. I was playing it last night just fine so im not sure what im missing.

    Did you play a DS game or something? You can either setup MSET again using other means, or boot Gateway via their .3dsx file and a homebrew launcher.

    MSET is the DS Profile Exploit. Look around the forum for a Menuhax tutorial, you can basically have Gateway autoboot ^^

    You can only use MSET (DS Profile) exploit on N3DS if you have downgraded settings app on sysNAND. If you have been using it before like that then you simply need to apply the MSET exploit again by means of running another exploit (CN, OOT, Browser) to launch GW menu to apply MSET for N3DS, or if you have previously downgraded flashcart block cia then you can also use DS to apply MSET exploit.

    OR

    To get rid of all this you can instead launch HBL (you need to first download HBL Starter Pack and set up on SD card) using any available exploits (CN, OOT, Browserhax) and run Menuhax manager to install themehax (this will allow you to have autoboot HBL).
    Then place then gw.3dsx file (which you can find it in latest GW release pack) in 3ds folder on your console SD card, then will be avaiable to run from HBL, so then you don't need to rely on other exploit and it also boots faster.
    If you want autoboot GW then you can instead rename boot.3dsx in your console SD card to something else and put gw.3dsx and rename it to boot.3dsx. This also makes it much faster boot to GW itself in under 30 seconds by just powering on console.

    NOTE that any of the above methods require you to have a N3DS on 9.2 or below sysNAND firmware to use GW.
