    EDIT** This is NOT the same 3DS im talking about in my other post

    I had an Original 3DS on 4.5U since forever. Everything worked.
    Today I updated to 9.2U via sysupdater because i was tired of having to enter EMUnand to get into HBL.
    I havent been able to get Gateway working via MSET.
    Ive looked thru forums but have seen nothing regarding my errror.

    - I was able to downgrade Mset to 4.x via RxTools with no errors
    - I installed the ds profile exploit with my dstwo
    - I try to load gateway via ds profile and I get an error has occurred message.

    Not sure how to fix this, and i cant find any answer
    I do NOT want to downgrade, my purpose in upgrading was to have a newer version installed and convenience of themehax. Appreciate any help.

    The gateway doesn't support downgraded mset on O3DS.

    Then he said he wanted to load gateway, not rxtools.

    Oh didn't see he tried to load gateway with downgraded mset.
    O3DS=Original 3DS.

    I used RxTools to downgrade MSET. But my problem is loading Gateway. (via MSET)
    Can someone tell me what the install NVRAM option in gateway menu does?

    whats the point of updating to 9.2 if i have to downgrade MSET and then it doesnt even work in the first place.
    Or am i misunderstanding something here?

    NVRAM option is for MSET in N3DS. it won't work on O3DS.

    You can still launch Gateway with browser.

    You can't do that, Gateway doesn't have 9.x mset support for O3DS, they don't care about it, they only gave support for N3DS.

    Best you can do is set up Themehax autoboot + ctrbootmanager to keep using emunand through rxTools or downgrade back to 4.x to keep using Gateway.

    You have to downgrade mset on 9.2 because the mset title exploit was fixed on 7.0

    In any event, Gateway does not support ANY profile exploit on firm > 4.5 (old 3ds)

    So there is absolutely no way to load Gateway via MSET on 9.2? I swear i thought it was possible, thats why I updated.
    If there isnt, i guess im gonna have to downgrade back to 4.5

    And the reason they only gave support for N3DS is because you can't downgrade N3DS, but you can downgrade O3DS so it's unecessary to do MSET thing on O3DS 9.2.

    Yes. Why did you upgrade in the first place?

    He updated because he reads about everyone using sysupdater to get to 9.2, he tought that everyone updated to 9.2 and kept using mset like a 4.x system.

    But in reallity everyone is updating to launch rxTools from a coldboot by Themehax + ctrbootmanager combo. @juins

    Because I was tired of having to load emunand into themehax to get into HBL
    Wanted the convenience of just turning my device on and holding L without going into emuNAND
    I guess im going to downgrade back to 4.5 with gateway. I think i recall seeing it was possible without having to do the hardware mod thing + NAND backup. I will read a bit

    Just use CFW. CFW is almost similar (actually better in some ways) to Gateway.
    MSET for Gateway is only for N3DS as stated in first response in this thread.

    Thank you for that clear answer. Basically yes, and i was already using ctrbootmanager on emunand. I really prefer the MSET way for GW.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I use CFW for GBA games
    Dont wanna download CIAS when i have already more than 60ish GBs of roms in .3DS format
    (or converting)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    If i downgrade, will AGB FIRM, MSET, DS Whitelist and TWL be in their respective FW 4.5 versions? Or do i have to go about installing CIAS again

    But now you can have themehax in sysnand, just use ctrbootmanager to launch rxTools, HBL and can't you just create and entry for Gateway? Still better imo

    ohhhh, This IS actually better! I thought of this but couldnt get it to work
    What file do u point the boot.cfg to? I tried pointing to launcher.dat and it just froze there
    Can u clarify this for me ?

    inb4 adding Gateway to the list is not possible.
    Has anyone done this? @rotebrotobias
