    I haven't updated my 3ds for awhile... and now i see the new update is through the website now.... which is a lil different from before.


    I am on GW3D 9.0.0-20U

    before in the past I just downloaded the update and simply transferred it to my SD card.
    and that was it.

    do I now have to go to the website on my 3ds and get the update like that (like i've read mentioned in guides) or is that just for 3ds that have never had a gateway before?

    I have my sysnand backed up, but I'm still concerned I might fudge something up so I'm here looking for a definitive answer from an expert.

    Also, will this new update effect my game saves?

    Thanks, I love GBATemp :)

    Boot into emunand, update through system settings.
    Be sure your firmware version is shown as GW3D 9.0.0-20U before updating.
    Nothing affect game saves here. latest version installed on the emunand partition is confirmed by many (including myself) to works fine.

    ok, sounds good,
    I should put the new launcher.dat (gatway 3.04) on my SD and replace the old one with it, correct?
    Then I just update in emunand through system settings.

    That's all :)
