    I have a 3DS XL still on 5.0.0-11u
    Im aware that 4.5 was the latest fw supported by gateway, but theres talk of 6.2 being supported
    by test cards, or a beta firmware or whatnot.


    I was wondering 2 things

    1) Did they skip the 5x fw and go right to 6.2? (probably the smart thing to do, but im wondering)
    if not; where can a man such as myself (lol) find 5.0 support.

    2) I know the blue card (or was it red, i dunno) was basically just an R4I
    so im wondering if the 6.2 firmware for G3DS was downloadable.
    I have a DSTWO and an R4I(legit) that I would like to test it on and see if it will install on the 5.X
    one, if it does, i can simply go buy my gateway card.


    summary:
    Was the 5x line skipped?
    Can i download this "beta" gateway firmware that runs on the 6.1 / 6.2 3DS's ??

    There's no gateway firmware for 6.1 / 6.2 . No one knows whether or not they will skip 5.0 and go straight to 6.2.

    If an exploit exists in 6.2 it will most likely also exist in 5.0
     
    Foxi4 and Rydian like this.

    I actually have my doubts they will be able to crack higher then firmware 4.5.
    I have lose my hopes with the spoof version.

    The same exploit that gateway runs their code with on 4.1-4.5 also exists in 6.2.

    Gateway confirmed awhile back that they're specifically working on an update for it to run on 6.1 https://mobile.twitter.com/Gateway3DS/status/356004812480978944 will this also work on 5.0x? Possibly but it wouldn't be intentional, much in the same way the current gateway firmware just happens to work on 4.1-4.5

    The exploit exists up to at least 6.1, I haven't updated my 3ds to 6.2 so I can't test that version
