So I'm making this tutorial in order to help some people who maybe have the same problem I had, and it was so troublesome until someone came and helped me to solve it, and it is so simple actually :blink:.

So I want to make it easier step by step, so you shouldn't pass all the trouble I had.

We will need:
  • A Windows PC.
  • HxD Hex editor.
  • SD card reader or something similar.
  • emuNAND tool
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A IMAGE COPY OF YOUR SD CARD IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING ON YOUR CARD GETS MESSED UP, SO PLEASE FOLLOW THIS GUIDE CAREFYLLY.

Step 1: Insert your SD card to the PC, it should show MTCARD_EMUNAND.​
Step 2: Open HxD as Administrator.​

Step 3: In the Extras tab on the top click open disk.​

Step 4: Uncheck the read-only checkmark and select Removable disc # (DO NOT SELECT THE NAMED SD CARD UNDER LOGICAL DISCS!!).​

Step 5: On the right of hxd (0 Sector, offset 000000000) the text should say MTCARD_NAND.​

Step 6: put your writing cursor in front of that and type "GATEWAY"​
IT SHOULD NOW SAY GATEWAYNAND.​

Step 7: SAVE.​
Step 8: Exit HxD and use emunand tool for whatever you wanted it for, it should recognize the SD card and start dumping/injeting properly.​
Once you're done you should undo what you use hxd again and rename the "GATEWAYNAND" to "MTCARD_NAND" and save that.
Special thanks to LameNobody for this protip, it was very helpfull.​

You can actually leave it at GatewayNAND. The MT card launcher supports GatewayNAND named emuNANDs, and Gateway doesn't. Why not just leave it as Gateway? :P

I'm just curious , Why would you make this ? and tell me the advantages of this

Buen trabajo compatriota
for people to extract their MT created emunand using emunandtool, which doesn't support MTemunand as it looks specifically for the GATEWAYNAND at the start of the disk
