    I heard SKY3DS can run japanese games with regionfour. i was looking for FE:IF, but in the compatibly list, it says not compatible, but it says (regionFour). Does that mean, it runs with regionFour or not?

    No, unfortunately they have not fixed the template for Fire Emblem: If. So it doesn't work (yet).

    The game doesn't even run on a Japanese 3DS via Sky3DS.

    Dang it. Sadly I only have access to Gateway Mode and RXTools via my 2DS and the boot rate is at about -5

    You can install the game as a CIA via RxTools on your 2DS, that's one way to play it.

    You can install it via Emunand using rxTools, so it won't appear on your sysNAND.

    Thats the problem. I can only access my emunand after about 100000 retries to enter it. Only way is replace the launcher.dat and format emunand again

    Weird, my 2DS doesn't have that problem. What version is your sysNAND and EmuNAND? It could be a faulty sd card.

    Are they unlinked? I would update the Emunand to see if that helps but they have to be unlinked before the update. You'd have to backup your Emunand though, in case it gets messed up (I only say this because you probably have some important stuff on the Emunand).

    You have to either format sysNAND or Emunand. I'd make a nand backup of both prior to doing this. Most people usually format sysNAND.

    There was a guide/sticky about this, so I would look into it before attempting anything.

    Yup, backup both, copy the contents of the SD card to your PC, load Emunand and format. It's easier to format sysNAND though.

    Also, from Maxconsole user Davhuit:

    "Of course, you can (basically, the format with the SD card just force the 3DS to create a new folder for the sysnand when you put the SD card back in the 3DS, nothing more, so it's not related to the firmware version or such).

    Format option do not require the last firmware, it just check if you can connect to internet for whatever reason but it doesn't update your firmware (it couldn't, it would be illegal to update without asking you, except if you purposely choose an option somewhere on your 3DS to automatically make the updates).

    - Boot in sysnand.
    - Go to systems settings.
    - Go the page with format option (last one).
    - Remove the SD Card and format WITHOUT THE SD CARD.
    - Once it's formatted, 3DS will reboot. Once it's reboot, put the SD card back in. It'll create some new folders and here you go, sysnand and emunand are now separated."

    That is if you format sysNAND, so you can keep Emunand. After it's done, load Emunand and update

    You do know how to make a NAND backup, right?

    So do you plan on formatting Emunand or SysNAND? I've only ever formatted SysNAND to unlink them, so I can't say much for formatting Emunand. That's why I posted the guide.

    Are you absolutely sure you're updating Emunand? Did you go directly to system settings app and start the update without exiting it?
