    Before trying this yourself, please see if your reseller will exchange it with a fresh unit.

    Good news, it appears the GW team has located the problem some people are experiencing trying to download the Omega firmware. This is good news for those who know theirs aren't fake.

    I would imagine most people would go to an RMA, but it's good to see Gateway put out some information for those DIY'ers. Nice thread. :)

    gateway team seems to care for their product AND costumers! I like that very much! Good work GW team.

    By the way, can you use DSTWO instead this other GW card that is used for DS and hacking i guess.. i mean i'm guessing the price is high because you get 2 cards, not just 1.. so if i order 1 card the price would be cheaper, right? just saying...

    Yeah, you can. The red Gateway card is only for 3DS games, and the blue card is for NDS games. Unfortunately, the blue card is no longer compatible with the newest firmware of the 3DS. So, the cheapest option, and the best option for NDS games, is to just go with the DSTWO card instead of the Gateway card. All summed up, for 3DS games, choose the Gateway card. For NDS games, choose the DSTWO card.

    Alright, so a good reflow with soldering paste will help.
    Of course you have to tear it apart otherwise you'd end up with melted gateway... and I wouldn't be yummy! :P LOL

    Cheesr!

    Yeah, i know that,. blue DS, red 3DS. So i can setup 3DS with DStwo, i dont need blue card?? why are they selling blue than, if majority of people have R4 or dstwo or other card.. so there is no place where ou can buy just Red card.. i dont need 2 DS cards and i dont want to pay for two cards :/

    And by the way, how come blue card is not working anymore?

    Blue card is working, but not on the latest Nintendo firmware update. But since you're supposed to use the Blue card to install the exploit on a 4.1-4.5 firmware, it works fine. It's not really meant to be used for playing DS games, anyway. I agree they should offer Red Gateway without the blue card for those that want to save a little money. But the amount would probably be very tiny.

    Ok, thanks :) i wont off-topic any more.

    But really, how cheaper can it get, what you think? i mean if thats some R4 clone than probably 20$ cheaper.. that's 59$ for GW red card less, compared for 79$ NDS-card.com is selling now!
    And eachmall.me is selling for 62.22$ and if you take off blue card it would be 42.22$ for red GW alone!!!

    The blue cart costs nowhere near $20, it probably is $5 max

    Probably not even that, for GW it's wholesale price for a cart with an outdated design. I'm assuming (yes assumptions!) that (1) GW doesn't want the hassle of n00bs ordering just the GW card then asking for support why it's not working and (2) having to support al kinds of NDS carts where people are unable to install the exploit. This is just a single, uniform solution.

    people are too quick to thining "right 2 cards, but i only need 1 of them......ig got ripped off i should of paid half"

    gateway probably got these for practically nothing, and probably included them for nothing, no reseller would be able to shift a 4.x NDS card......well they probably could todsi and NDS users, but its still a card that gets 0 support, splitting them would just cause more trouble than to give them away for free and not have to deal with a ton of "my NDS card works on my DS lite but not my 3DS....you scammed me:cry:"

    please guys keep this thread on topic. it looks like it's gonna become the "official" thread to talk about the two errors (but I would change the title to "possible fix for errors 000000" etc...).

    can you post some links to messages with people saying that soldering fixed the problem for them?

    edit, for future readers:
    I got my gateway repaired with soldering and it can now update. it wasn't working well at all, at first, but the next day it updated on the first try. so don't get too angry or sad if at first it looks like the soldering didn't work. let it rest for a night. I know, it's strange, lol

    BS, as they never replied to emails since feb 19th over my bricked unit I sent them using their product, so it's a BIG dildo shaft to their legit users and forget about them now, since Omega 2.1 is out.
