    I'm planning on buying a gateway card, but i have not seen many posts confirming that it works on 2ds, mine is on 9.2 US firmware, even on the gateway site it is written that it works on 3ds and xl, just want to get your opinion if you have a 2ds and used an gateway card on it, thanks for the help guys!

    NO solid answer, its a maybe yes or maybe no. Issues with the card not being recognized.

    I don't have one but my friend has a 2DS crystal blue. He is using Gatewat since the team released. Still good for now

    For me its on and off. If you have troubles getting games to run try using .cia method.

    There are reports of not being able to boot Gateway mode because the red card is not recognized, even though it is firmly in the Game card slot.
    It takes a few tries I read, and some were kicked out of their games mid-play because it says the red card was ejected.
    Work around: Use .CIA

    My 2DS & Gateway is working great. Some peoples aren't. Not sure why, probably will be fixable with a software update, but it's possible it's a hardware problem. So, basically, it's a crap shoot.

    worth noting though its either gateway or sky3ds for the 2DS.....i think most people worked around the 2DS gateway issues by using cia files which means the gateway card is only required to boot into gateway mode......other than that you can use the latest emunand, rom hacks and all the good stuff gateway allows and not be too badly effected if you happen to have one of the picky 2ds consoles,

    wondering if maybe its down to a revision as some people seem to be able to use it perfectly fine and others have lots of issues
    maybe 2DS users could share the start of their serial to see if its possibly down to revised consoles or something, something like
    AEH 1543xxxxxx working fine
    AEH 2946xxxxxx issues

    might help people know if they will likely be ok or not(assuming there is any correlation between serials and people having issues)

    OK, so this is kinda weird but I have 2 2ds systems and they would load gateway mode off and on, but even when it did I kept getting read errors when trying to get the game list to come up. Just playing with it, I realized that I had to keep them tilted back at about a 40 degree angle real still to get it to read. Did that and installed devmenu and that works fine.

    My gateway doesn't have a white sticker on it's back.

    My gateway is white, has a big ass red sticker on the front, and a smaller version of the front stickers on the back, crooked even.

    To find the serial l# on the GW blue card you have to peel away the sticker and look on the plastic piece thats under the card.

    you mean the 2DS serial? I really think the model of the 2DS doesn't have a bearing on this, but I can be wrong.
