    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.​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Step 3: In the Extras tab on the top click open disk.​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Step 4: Uncheck the read-only checkmark and select Removable disc # (DO NOT SELECT THE NAMED SD CARD UNDER LOGICAL DISCS!!).​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Step 5: On the right of hxd (0 Sector, offset 000000000) the text should say MTCARD_NAND.​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Step 6: put your writing cursor in front of that and type "GATEWAY"​
    IT SHOULD NOW SAY GATEWAYNAND.​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    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

    The purpose of this is to migrate from MT Emunand to Gateway Emunand to use with a Gateway Card?

    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

    To make it compatible with rxTools as it relies on Gateway's EmuNAND.

    Well I guess this is already obsolete since both emunand tool and rxtools have Mt emunand support.
