    I've got a 2ds @ 7.1.0 16E and I want to update it using cooking mama bon appetit eur via GW. When I load it using gateway it doesn't prompt me to update FW, it goes straight in the game. Is there a feature in GW that blocks updates? but why would it let me run the game when i'm on 7.1.0?
    I've also tried Tomodachi Life v02 EUR and it doesn't prompt for an update

    Thanks guys

    Yes, Gateway emunand blocks card updates (including cards emulated from .3ds ;) )

    Why it works? Because the game may not actually need features introduced in the bundled OS.

    Sometimes even if they do there's some fallback, at your own risk (like games using the 6.x+ save crypto can run on older firmwares but the saves created by >=6.0 will be incompatible with earlier ones)!

    With a -16 browser just use rxtools spyder boot to devmode and use sysupdater to 9.2

    That's because of the firmware spoofing.
    If you want to disable firmware spoofing, hold down the up button while going into Gateway Mode.
    Just careful you don't update in systemnand or you will brick your system.

    Edit: oh I see you do want to update the system nand. Well you can't do that with Gateway afaik without bricking your system. Cfw and sysupdater as the poster above said.

    It doesn't update native firm so as long as that hasn't changed you can gw update
