    According to email responses sent out by the Gateway team the Gateway 3DS flashcart has already been blocked by the recent 3DS update. This has been reportedly confirmed in several emails sent to our members today.

    Reportedly they are working on a fix to get the card to work on a v6.x firmware fix but advise all potential early adopters to not update their 3DS for the foreseeable future.

    Mad gay props to Shadow#1 for the news!

    This is good news for the 3DS. After all, the friggin thing does not allow for homebrew or rom patching, only piracy.

    I haven't updated but I also haven't bought a card. Are nintendo's updates mandatory for new release games or just for the shop?

    I wonder if we can just stay on low firmware forever and just have stripped roms.

    Yeah, but if you leave some things out, it is just natural that people will ask such questions :)

    Yeah, but I believe the new update just happens to block gateway. It's hard to believe Nintendo specifically aimed to counter measure the gateway with the new update since it's not released yet.
