    Hello everybody.....
    my questions are...
    1- is it possible to downgrade a new 3ds firmware? if not is there any way i can chack
    the 3ds version without getting into the system like from the box or serial number or so?
    2- does both r4i gold deluxe and dstwo runs on 4.1 to 4.5 3ds versions? and can i use them both in
    the same console like to use r4i gold deluxe for 3ds games and dstwo for other emulators or the console
    will regonized one flash card only!!?
    3-are there any good websites to download 3ds ROMS such as zelda links between worlds and ocarina of time in english?
    4-does those flash cards run games fine with no lag and can i save my games on the r4i gold deluxe?

    i know those questions might been askin before but im new here and first post

    Simply put, Gateway flashcart is the pioneer and leading 3DS flashcart currently avaliable.
    (But the most expensive. Still worth it though.)

    your are very luck, because the 3DS is V4.1-V4.5,
    So, gateway 3ds is the best for you, can run 3DS roms

    nobody said it clearly, so I'll do it: the r4i gold deluxe is a clone of the gateway card. it's only worse and it can't release any new update without an hardware upgrade, as far as I know.

    I'm pretty sure the DSTWO supports the latest firmware and that it will play games for all those systems except for n64.

    ahaa ... so if im having the gateway and dstwo they will not work together in the same console because
    gateway runs on 4.1-4.5 girmware and dstwo runs on the latest im i right?
    but are you sure about that cause as far as i kno flash cards runs on certain firmware runs also on all previous firmwares too
    for example if dstwo runs on 3ds 7.1 i think it will run on 6.1 and 5.1 and 4.5 , correct me if im wrong.
    thanks

    Yeah NDS carts work on x.x and below, so if it says 7.2 compatible it means it will work on all firmwares as it has never been blocked, if a card is say 6.2 it will work on all up to 6.2

    oki so i went to like 10 shops yesterday to get 3ds xl firmware 4.1-4.5 and i got one with 4.2.0-9-u
    if any one is interseting to get one here things to look at before u buy it may help
    in the back of the box check the date if it is 2012 look at the serial in the box SWxxx.
    here what i figure out SW112x, SW112x, SW1138, when ever there are 11 in the begining its for sure less than 4.5
    if its SW1211 you okay too so the less number is the better and maybe those first two numbers related to the year lik 12 = 2012, 11 = 2011
    thats why there are old versions.
    i thought it will be good to share with u guys.
    i also found that gateway support gba? anyone tested or tried it?
    http://www.modchipfactory.com/news/...e-card-multikernel-v101-play-gba-ga-a-79.html
    coz im planning to dstwo for gba and all other classic consoles but since gateway support gba,3ds,nds,gbc,snes,nes i will only get the gateway ...
    can anyone tell me more about that?
    another question im ordering gateway flashcard and wondering how many micro sd's do i need i heared different everywhere!!
    also im wondering whats the best vid i shall follow to setup my gateway and showing each step (im will run the omega 2.2) so i heared there are no
    need to diskmgr just drag games into 3ds file that i created, correct me if im wrong.

    thanks

    for 3ds games, take a 32 or 64GB microsd card, if you want to keep many all in one card. for the blue card, a 2-4GB micro sd card should be enough. it depends, again, on how many games you want to hold inside it.
    for the other questions, just search in this section of the forum and you will very probably find all the answers.
