Ever since the Gateway cartridge got announced and the way it worked explained, I was wondering about one thing. I know that some games require a certain firmware version, or at least they they try to install one once you try to start them. I know this is true for ROM images as well, so my question is: If you're on 4.5.x, as most of the Gateway owners are, will a game from another region ran on the Gateway cartridge still try to update your console? That's assuming you're not on Gateway 1.2. I was wondering if the updates were region-specific, or universal. If they aren't universal, I guess another question would be if applying a JP update to a US console would region-convert the 3DS or screw things up, or not run at all. If someone from the 3DS hacking scene reads this, I'd really appreciate an answer to this question (rather than just an educated or an uneducated guess from anyone who happens to own a 3DS).
