    Hi

    I have my emunand on v 8.1.0 and that is working fine. But today I got a popup that there is an system update ready to install. I am worried that my son might select Yes to that prompt. What happens if he does? Will it update sysnand or emunand? My fear is that it updates sysnand and renders the 3DS unusable for Gateway.

    Thanks for any help

    It update your 3DS to Firmware 9.0.0 what is not supported by gateway now. They will release a new launcher shortly. Than you can update.

    Just update your 3DS via Settings. Boot in gateway mod -> settings -> There should be "GW3D (firmware)" -> than system update (IN SETTINGS). But the new system update isn`t supported by gateway now. Just wait for new launcher :)

    That's a horribly abiguous comment. Do NOT update anything. Wait for new launcher.

    You have to pass at least 2 or 3 screens to do the update, so there's no way you can update accidentally. (You can still backup your emunand with emunand tool, just in case)

    I know all that but I am afraid that my son will update through the popup (not in settings) and that it will result in an updated sysnand. The general rule is always only update in settings because otherwise you risk updating sysnand instead of emunand.

    So my original question is will updating when the popup shows update the emunand or the sysnand?

    If you don't have the popup on sysnand too, it will update only the emunand.

    My 2 cents:
    To avoid any confusion with your son I would configure three dummy Wifi access points in sysnand so you are sure he cannot get online in sysnand.
    Make a backup copy of the latest working emunand with the emunand tool and your are safe (even against a premature emunand update by your son, simply copy back the emunand backup)

    Thanks guys I already have a backup of my emunand. As long as I know that my sysnand is safe then I am happy.

    Have you tried turning off and booting back into emunand? I'm sure this cleared the nag for me, back when my emunand was 7.x and the 8.x update came out.

    i think that turning on parental controls still makes it so you need the key to run the update by default, could try that

    Nope, parental controls haven't blocked running updates since 3.x, so the whole "parental controls will protect you" is pointless, there is no way to block updates on any fw from 4.x onwards, best you can do is just try avoid downloading them by not leaving the wifi on in sleep mode etc, and making sure there is no valid wifi connections in sysnand

    In my own experiences parent control is really helpfull. I set it up and dont get the popup anymore. I think the update is still downloaded, but however, the popup isn't there. I can confirm that it works!

    so if I get update nag, all I have to do is use emunand tool to copy back my 8.1 backup?

    can I do a factory reset in emunand 8.1? will that get rid of update nag

    As long as you're connected to the internet when you close your console, you'll get the update nag.

    I am having a similar problem. I have been using emuNAND 8.1 successfully for a while.
    I booted Gateway mode (went to my emuNAND), then went to System Update to update the emuNAND.
    After the update (it said update successful), it brought me back to my HOME menu on my SysNAND (v4.4). Then the blue LED/light on the 3DS flashed and asked me to update (even though I have all spotpass settings off). I chose not to update.

    But now, when I go to Nintendo DS Profile Setting and boot Gateway mode, I just get a black screen and nothing happens (stays black).


    Is there any way that I can still use my Gateway 3DS on this 3DS now?
    Is it a problem with my SysNAND (it is still on 4.4 but keeps asking for update)?
    Or is it a problem with the emuNAND (version 9.x isn't supported for emuNAND yet)?
    Or both?

    If it is the emuNAND, it shouldn't be too long before Gateway releases an update that lets me use emuNAND 9.x (so soon I can use my Gateway on this 3DS again), right?
    If it is the SysNAND, it will probably be a very long time before Gateway flashcart can support a 3DS on v9.0, right?

    Tell him sternly to never update it. If he updates anyway, blister his fucking ass until the skin is peeling from bone, and make him get a job to pay you back so you can buy another 4.5U 3DS. I don't even care if it's child slave labor.

    It's your emunand. Gateway doesn't support 9.x for emunand yet.

    actually I already got the update nag. I'm just wondering how to get rid of it. some people tell me to do a factory reset in 8.1 emunand. some poople tell me to copy back my 8.1 backup. I don't know which one is the correct way of doing this
