    You need :
    - A 9.0-9.2 n3ds obviously
    - The latest gateway firmware : Downloads | Gateway
    - The CFW pack. Extract it on your micro-sd card root.
    - an Internet connexion (use the tubehax dns to prevent background update downloading : 107.211.140.065)


    I Installing a cia manager on your sysnand

    1. Setup Browserhax : https://gbatemp.net/threads/yellows8s-browserhax-thread.398132/
    2. Launch the HBL (Hombrew Launcher) with browserhax.
    3. Choose the PastaCFW
    4. Once you're back in the menu, immediatly start the HBL again
    5. This time, choose FBI.
    6. Use FBI to install the cia manager tou prefer. (FBI, devmenu or BBM, I personally prefer BBM)
    (If you get a database error, the solution is inside the FBI FAQ : https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-fbi-open-source-cia-installer.386433/ )


    II. Setting up the emunand.

    1. Put the gateway's launcher.dat on your micro-sd card root.
    2. Extract the GW_3dsx.zip on your micro-sd card root
    3. Backup your micro-sd card content on your computer
    4. Launch the HBL and select Gateway.
    5. In the gateway menu, select "Format Emunand"
    6. Then select "Backup System nand"
    7. Finally, press down + B to shut down the console
    8. Restore your micro-sd card content and put your nand backup somewhere safe.

    With Reinand
    1. Boot into Emunand, and go to the system settings, and don't exit it until the update is done.
    2. Make sure it says Rei in front of the version number to be sure that you are in emuNAND. If it does don't exit the systems setings until the update is done. If it doesn't, don't continue or you will update your sysnand, or worse.
    3. Disable the tubehax dns if you have it, then start the update.


    III Updating the emunand
    With Reinand

    1. Boot into Emunand, and go to the system settings, and don't exit it until the update is done.
    2. Make sure it says Rei in front of the version number to be sure that you are in emuNAND. If it does don't exit the systems setings until the update is done. If it doesn't, don't continue or you will update your sysnand, or worse.
    3. Disable the tubehax dns if you have it, then start the update.
    With Reinand
    1. Boot into Emunand, and go to the system settings, and don't exit it until the update is done.
    2. Make sure it says Rei in front of the version number to be sure that you are in emuNAND. If it does don't exit the systems setings until the update is done. If it doesn't, don't continue or you will update your sysnand, or worse.
    3. Disable the tubehax dns if you have it, then start the update.





    1. Launch the HBL, select Reinand.
    1. You should boot into your emunad. Go to the system settings.
    2. Make sure it says Rei in front of the version number to be sure that you are in emuNAND. If it does don't exit the systems setings until the update is done. If it doesn't, don't continue or you will update your sysnand, or worse.
    3. Disable the tubehax dns if you have it, then start the update.


    IV Start the CFW without internet.

    1. With themehax (or homemenuhax)

    This method only work if your emunand are unlinked (to unlink the nand, format your sysnand with the micro-sd card out)
    Just install themehax using browsehax. You can choose between :
    - The original version (The HBL will be launched if you hold L when you turn on the console)
    - The modded version (The HBL will be launched when you turn off your console, unless you hold any button)
    To uninstall themehax just change your sysnand theme.
    Notice : You can use this if you want to coldboot on the CFW of your choice : http://gbatemp.net/threads/ctrbootmanager-3ds-boot-manager-loader-homemenuhax.398383/

    2. With a downgraded mset

    To downgrade your mset :
    - Copy the mset_region.cia from the GATEWAY ULTRA 3.X\MSET4.5 installers for New 3DS REGION SPECIFIC !!!\your_region folder on your sd card.
    - Launch Pasta then FBI or devmenu. (It won't work with bbm)
    - If you're using FBI, switch the destination to nand.
    - Install mset_region.cia.
    - Go to the system settings. If the nnid settings are gone, that means the operation was successfull.
    Then to setup the MSET rop :
    - Launch FBI then press select
    - Choose "reinand N3DS 9.X".
    - You can now start the cfw from System Settings -> Other Settings ->Profile -> DS Profile

    Just use sysupdater to update your emunand (yes, it's safe to use on rxmode as long as you're 100% sure to be on the emunand). :)
