    Hi all, I've and old 3DS with Emunand and Cake firmware and I never had problems with games, but I just bought Pokémon Moon and it says "the gamecard was removed" when I try to start, even if the gamecard is inserted.

    I tried the demo and it worked without problems and I never tried the pirated version of Pokémon... What can I do? At worst, how can I remove all modifications from my 3ds and have it original again? Thanks!

    Have you tried other game cards? Maybe your cart reader is dead.

    You could try the cart in a different 3ds and see if it has the same problems. If that's the only game that's not working, it must be a problem with the cart itself and not your console.

    Pretty sure this has something to do with Cakes and the fact that Sun and Moon use extended memory. Try using Luma.

    Thanks. Is it possible to use Luma with emunand instead of cake?

    Sry but I'm not an expert and I did all the emunand things on 3ds like 1 year ago, so I don't remember much :(

    I've simply to put the luma files on my 3DS SD and boot like I do with cake?

    Ok, it works! If someone have the same problem, just do this simple things (2 min. needed XD):
    - Download this
    - Put "arm9loaderhax.bin" to the root of the SD
    - Copy the contents of the hax folder to the root of the SD
    - Start with Menuhax and boot Luma
    - Have fun
