Hi guys and gals,

i'm using my 2ds for modding and such, and ill be receiving my gateway ultra V3 cart (soon) that i recently ordered from Playmods uk. The service there was awesome, ordering/payment/shipping is excellent as their customer service is very helpful and very responsive.

A Few questions that i have regarding my 2ds and Gateway ultra:

1) The newest Gateway Firmware is Ultra 3.1.1 which has support for the N3ds and Cubic Njnia,
i know that it doesn't work booting CN to GW on O3ds (yet), but when GW says no support for o3ds does that include ads as well?
or can CN booting into Gw mode work on 2ds?

2) my 2ds is at 7.1 FW, my R4i Gold Plus cart works fine here, but it won't work passed 7.1? like on 9.2?

3) also does separating emunand from synand protect you from bad cia writes?
like if i install a via in my emunand which is a bad write (for example) does this mess up my synand?

also the cia's installed on my emunand won't appear in synand if emu/syn nand's aren't linked together?

4) since emunand is created from the current FW of Synand, does that mean that i can't have a different firmware emunand than the current synand?
like EX:

my Synand is 7.1 and worked great work R4I gold plus cart,

and my emunand is 9.0-9.2 for themes etc

if i separate them, then i can have separate FW on emu than sys?

5) also can games which have their update data removed via CTR tool or Room tool 3.1 CMD ver work fine on min FW or do they absolutely need the included update data to run at all?

for example Pokemon Alpha sap has update data 7.2, so if i remove this from the game can it then run on 7.1 fw?

that's all my questions, hope this helps.

No you can't use CN to launch GW on 2DS.

2) my 2ds is at 7.1 FW, my R4i Gold Plus cart works fine here, but it won't work passed 7.1? like on 9.2?

Didn't really understand the question, Gateway should work on all firmwares below 9.2, don't know antything about R4i Gold Plus.

3) also does separating emunand from synand protect you from bad cia writes?
like if i install a via in my emunand which is a bad write (for example) does this mess up my synand?

That's the point of emuNAND, even if they're not seperated.

also the cia's installed on my emunand won't appear in synand if emu/syn nand's aren't linked together?

No they won't, there's a way to transfer them, but there's no point since they won't boot in sysNAND, only legit cias will boot in sysNAND.

4) since emunand is created from the current FW of Synand, does that mean that i can't have a different firmware emunand than the current synand?

That's precisely why emuNAND is being used, so you can update the emuNAND to the latest version and have e-shop access, while keeping your sysNAND 9.2 or lower, for example my emuNAND right now is 9.5, but my sysNAND is 9.0.
They don't have to be seperated for you to update your emuNAND.

Note : emuNAND 9.6 is not yet supported, Gateway has not yet updated it.

hay, thanx for the reply, Ra1d!

i wonder if CN boot mode will be available for Old 3ds and 2ds, hopefully soon or in the near future.
through the browser method isn't bad, but an offline method like cn boot mode would be asweome :)

also, when i format emunand on my sd card it's firmware will be the same as my Sys Nand?

also is it safe to update emunand via a .cia to a specific version? like to 9.0-9.2 for example?

GW teams says they have no plans unless they get "enough interested users".

If you have an android(not sure if they support iOS), you can download the application called 3DS X-Loader, which lets you run the exploit offline

Yes.

Yes, i did just that 2 days ago when I got my Cubic Ninja on N3DS.
