Pre-Setup Tips:
- Make sure you have a valid wireless profile in your 3DS/N3DS, but DO NOT switch it on yet
- Format your MicroSD for the GATEWAY CART as ExFAT so you can place files over 4GB in size on them. Windows 7 and higher natively supports this from the Format menu in Computer/This PC. The SD card inside your 3DS/N3DS should be FAT32, as it will not recognize ExFAT.

Part 3 Setup Emunand

It's important that you DO NOT EXIT your Settings menu at any point before or during the setup and updating of your emunand, doing so will push you out of the exploit and back to sysnand and you MAY UPDATE YOUR SYSNAND FIRMWARE.

Step 1: Get back to the Gateway menu by re-launching the web browser exploit (see above). After the bottom screen turns white, hold down L so that your 3DS doesn't boot straight back to the Home Screen.

Step 2: Select "Format Emunand" from the menu (I hope you copied your NAND backup to your PC already!) — this will ERASE YOUR SD/MICROSD INSIDE YOUR 3DS/N3DS and configure it for Emunand.

Step 3: Once it has finished (it will take awhile) choose the option to boot to Gateway Mode. Open your system settings and look for the GW3D Firmware.
