    You should note, sometimes it is necessary to have an e-shop downloaded title on your SD card for the gift box to show up on your emuNAND menu. The best way to do this would be to either:
    a) Get a gateway and use latest emunand to download a demo
    b) Transfer the files from an SD card backup from before you formatted emuNAND that has a demo or something on it

    Also, I have a problem where the 3DS randomly deletes some SD card titles. Of course I can't launch them since they are encrypted differently, but it deleted these from the CFW:
    Ambassador Certificate
    Fantasy Life (installed from devmenu)
    Devmenu
    Pokemon Alpha Sapphire
    Pokemon Alpha Sapphire demo

    Any ideas?

    I have problem. I am be able to go to CFW and obtain the right IP of my 3ds. I did write my ID to run bat. and even disable my router internet security. However anytime I run the run.bat I get error ctrclinne: failed to connect

    anyone please help

    try many way like turn off the wifi when it fail connect.(however it freeze when I turn on wifi again). Go to internet browser (however can not load any page because it freeze whenever click on something). turn off wifi password and firewall.

    No solution for me. So I guess just wait for a better CFW then.

    Do you have Launcher.dat on the SD? Clear cookies + cache in the browser and try again.

    R4i Gold is fine if it works on 4.5 or below. You only need a DS card.

    Regular way is to just load the DS Profile without holding L. Yes, you need to load the CFW to install CIAs.

    Hmmm, maybe it's your internet connection. Try another connection or the Android app posted in the Tutorials forum.

    If you're on 4.5, you don't need to do the downgrade step. Just make sure you keep your NAND.bin safe somewhere.

    Yeah, CFW is very buggy as of now. It takes a lo of tries to open it, and no the only way is to keep trying. You could leave the 3DS in sleep mode once you're in the CFW.

    You must boot into the CFW to play games you have installed.

    Yep. If the screen flashes white for a brief moment, it means it worked. Just wait a couple of seconds for it to load into CFW.

    EDIT: this is for step 11 btw
    EDIT2: just to clarify the LAUNCHER.dat from step 5 is replaced because we copy the content from the cfw folder onto the root?

    okay so i've tried about like 10 times already the bottom flashes white temporarily then the top stays bluish and bottom stays black nothing happens. oh and by the way what happened to steps 14-21?
