    I'd say around 10% of the time,
    i have a n3dsxl and go to the settings to go to GW mode

    After the Gateway screen Pops up sometimes all i get is a blackscreen

    I just close the 3ds and GW usually works next time,after i go to settings and do the same process

    Just wanted to know whether some of you experience the same thing
    I'm not sure whether i can do anything against it
    i'm a total noob anyway

    10% rate is really bad. Did you make sure to update your launcher.dat? I have about 8 out of 10 success rate when booting my N3DS.

    I think ts means 10% fail rate. 90% success is not bad. ;)

    Thats about normal.

    It's really hit and miss on the N3DS. Sometimes it will go for months and months without failure, then other times it will black screen 5 times in succession.

    It's just the small price we have to pay for running "dumps of our purchased cartridges"
