Gateway news updated ! The gateway 3ds flashcard finally comes out next week

It’s over a month past since the news come for the real 3ds flashcard – gateway 3ds can play backup 3ds roms . Today the news has updated finally.

Quote the official news for you here:

GATEWAY 3DS UPDATE , Officially opening of pre-orders !

Gateway is please to announce start of manufacturing and the opening of pre-orders. We expect to roll out the first units to resellers within the next fortnight.

Please pay special attention to the following critical information regarding our current software development phase.

1) Yes, we are exploit based (Yay !?) and therefore very dependent on console firmware version: Our current plan is to release for firmware version 4.5 while continuing work on a solution for 6.x + after release. (please see note below)

2) Gateway will be shipped with 2 cards, the red Gateway shown in our video, which will handle 3ds backups, and a blue ds cart which will be used to prepare the console. ( more demo videos showing save game compatibility as well as setup procedures to follow soon )

3) Your console can be safely updated to 4.5 by using an original title released after March 2013 till current. Please double check the update message (version) before proceeding !


We currently have a very convenient and user friendly way to enter into our Gateway mode, while this entry point has been tested up to 6.0 we expect it to be shut off shortly after we release. We can not stress enough the importance of staying away from any further updates! ( 6.0 compatibility is only valid for our initial entry point, as stated in point (1) we currently only support firmware version 4.5 ).

OK, the great news is we can play the backup 3ds roms since it’s in stock. However , the bad news is we only play 3ds roms on 4.x system. That will be
the biggest problem , most of the 3ds / 3ds xl system may be force to update to 6.x as Nintendo want take action for the 3ds flashcart hacking.
What’s worse , the gateway 3ds flashcard maybe with region blocked which many players would not like it.
What earth will the gateway 3ds flashcard be? Maybe , we need to review after next week.


Want to know more news about Gateway 3ds? this FAQ will help you

So far as we known, the gateway rolled out the Gateway 3ds flashcard which working 3ds roms , this is a revolution item , so that manly users want to know more information about it. Let’s read  the following FAQ , and you’ll have a better understanding for it.

*The gateway 3ds flashcard hacked 3ds roms? Is this real?
Short answer: Yes. This is a real product and will really allow you to play 3DS ROMS on your 3DS unit.

*How does the gateway 3ds  work?
It’s a tiny bit more complicated than this, but I’m dumbing it down so that everyone can understand. Basically, this is a shell for an SD card slot which tricks the 3DS into thinking that the SD card is the game cart. By putting the ROM into the SD card, and the SD card into the shell, you’ve essentially created a 1:1 copy of a retail game; a bootleg.

*What does that mean for the user?
A couple things. The SD card has to be the correct size for the ROM. If you have a 2gb ROM you need a 2gb SD card, and so on. You cannot use a larger card than the ROM you’re using, which also means that there’s no way to store more than one ROM on the card at a time. Additionally, the save files are stored on the cart shell itself, as the spot for that is standardized. This means that if you change the ROM, the new game will see that information as a corrupted save and delete it. You’ll need to back up your save files before switching ROMs, and you may need additional hardware to do so.

*Can gateway 3ds run homebrew?
Nope. This won’t allow you to run unsigned code. The cart is set up in such a fashion that you’ve created a 1:1 copy of a retail cart. That is, it’s signed by Nintendo already, and that’s why you can run it.

*Can it get around region blocking?
Nope. For the same reason listed above, you’ll still need to use the correct region’s ROM for your hardware, and won’t be able to play any ROMS of games that haven’t been released in your hardware’s region. You also can’t modify the ROMs without stripping the Nintendo signature and thus making this method no longer work.

*But since the 3DS can’t tell the difference between this and a real cart, it means Nintendo can’t block it with an update, right?
No. Nintendo can and will block this device. Currently, the 3DS can’t tell the difference. However, it’s just not being instructed to check the right things. There’s plenty Nintendo can do to identify this device. For only one example, they can check the read speed of the cart and see that it isn’t the same as an official card.

Worse, since ROMs can’t be modified, Nintendo also can and will simply include the update on future game carts, making it impossible to play those games with the device since doing so would force an update that made it no longer function.

*So what will I need in order to use this to full effect?
You’ll need:
1) The device itself
2) One MicroSD card to standard SD card adaptor for your computer, or a USB card reader device with a MicroSD card slot.
3) One MicroSD card of every standard 3DS ROM size – 512mb, 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB
4) A method of getting save data off the cart, storing it for later, and putting it back on the cart (an R4i save dongle, for instance).

*Will this open any doors for better versions in the future?
Nope. Again, because it’s running 1:1 copies, and can’t run any modified or unsigned code, it won’t be leading to better technology on its own. It will, however, serve to motivate those that are currently working to crack that nut in two ways: First, because someone is out there getting a piece of the pie already and potentially eating their sales, and second because people will be unhappy with the complicated way this one works and demand for a proper system will increase.
