    So just to be clear, is Gateway 2.0 OMEGA (Gateway 3DS's second flashcart with emuNAND) is now available for the public and available for purchase?

    It's not a second flashcard, just a firmware that can update the cart.

    If you haven't bought it, you can request your reseller to update the cart for you, just in case.

    As kyorge123 stated, any Gateway flash cart is compatible with 2.0 and 2.1 OMEGA. One of GBATemp's resellers via ShopTemp is recommended to avoid fakes.

    Okay, so I have to buy Gateway's first and only Flashcart (regular Gateway 3DS) and 2.0 OMEGA/2.1 OMEGA is basically just a firmware update for the flashcart? There is no seperate flashcart that I can just buy?
    So I would just have to copy the files to the root of a microSD card in order to get Gateway 2.0 OMEGA (which allows emuNAND and multi-rom support)?

    And when I order a Gateway 3DS, I can just ask the seller to update the Gateway flashcart for me before sending/shipping it to me?


    What do you mean by ShopTemp? Do you mean the resellers link on Gateway's website? http://www.gateway-3ds.com/resellers/
    If not, where can I find GBATemp's Resellers? Would Gateway's resller link work as well?


    I live in Canada, and on Gateway's website, there is only one working link that ships from Canada.
    So would the Modchipcentral.com link (which I found on Gateway's reseller link) be a good reseller? https://www.modchipcentral.com/store/Gateway-3DS-USA-CANADA.html?&cat=279
    That is the product that I need to buy to get Gateway 2.0 OMEGA, right?

    So those resellers should give me the right Gateway Flashcart to get Gateway 2.0 OMEGA? And I should be able to request those resellers (on the ShopTemp) to update the flashcart for me? This is the right flashcart on these links, right?

    Yes, just buy the regular gateway.
    Yes, you just update by putting the files in the sd card.
    No, the seller won't update it for you. It's easy to do, they will not waste their time.


    Yes, buy a gateway from this list to avoid fakes http://www.gateway-3ds.com/resellers/
    It does not have to be from shoptemp.
    Modchipcentral is fine. I got my gateway there. You can also shop around other stores on the list to see if they're cheaper and ship to canada. Try to check out some of the US stores on the list.

    All correct. I would recommend a seller that ships from within the US or Canada. Modchipcentral is solid. 3ds-flashcart ships from China and takes a good while (a month or so).

    yeah the omega update is indeed just a update for the existing gateway card, i would recommend you ask the seller to upgrade for you if they can, as few users have had issues upgrading to the new FW, so it would be better to know its 100% going to work fine.

    I would trust more in modchipcentral than 3ds-flashcard.

    THere are no more Gateways, yes, you got it right. But actually the packaging comes with two flashcard, one for the DS for the GW installer (blue cart), and the second one (red one) for 3DS games.

    I can't tell you for sure if resellers are offering to update the cart before shipping them (this update still doesn't have a week since its release), but you could try to ask them to do it for you to avoid getting a card that doesn't work.

    By this I hope you mean that they haven't released a new, seperete product and you don't mean that they are out of stock.
