So today, Gateway released ver 3.0.4 to support 9.5 firmware. From this update, we can tell there has been no new additional features since ver 3.0.3. And with their news update on the New 3DS, it seems that they are really finishing up the New 3DS support this time. But what is shocking to me is the news that now the n3ds cannot support 9.5 Emunand or higher. That means n3ds are stuck at 9.4 Emunand MAX. Then, how do you update to 9.4 Emunand? 1) If the n3ds comes with 9.4 out of the box, then Gateway has said they can only support up to Sysnand 9.2. So it wouldn't work. But 9.4 is unlikely. 2) If the new 3ds comes with ver 9.0 to 9.2, then you are stuck with this version as the Emunand because the current version is at 9.5 so you can't update the Emunand anymore. 3) If it does come out, can a game cart with ver9.4 be used to update Gateway Emunand running in classic mode? So in all, is it worth now to get a n3ds, and be stuck at 9.2 sysnand, 9.4 emunand? I know there is always region free and cia support for Gateway. But how many other region games are you playing? And CIA always feels more of a gimmick to me. I still want my eShop access if possible. Or maybe the Sky3ds is more suited for the N3DS, because you can continue to update your N3DS and it still continues to work fine on it. There's no need to wait for updates.
