How to troubleshoot problems after jailbreaking a 3Ds XL
If you have any problems after jailbreaking your 3Ds XL, here are some troubleshooting tips that may help.
-If the 3DS does not boot after the gateway card is inserted, try removing and re-inserting the SD card.
-If the 3DS hangs on a black screen after inserting the Gateway card, try holding down the START button while inserting the Gateway card. This should bring up the recovery menu. From here, you can try a different method of jailbreaking or restore your 3DS to its unjailbroken state.
-If you are stuck in a never-ending loop of black screens and white squares, it is likely that your 3DS’s firmware is not compatible with the current version of gateway. Try downgrading your firmware to an older version and then trying again.
