I know this is probably a really stupid question but will Gateway work on 4.5.0-9U?
It should. Out of curiosity, how did you get 4.5.0-9U? All of the games that have 4.5 update you to 10U, last I thought.
(The last part is actually a separate firmware from the first part, it's slightly confusing but basically the newest 4.5 is 4.5.0-10)
Yes. It works from 4.1-4.5 currently (there's also tons of documentation on this with a simple Goodle search ).
I actually did search on Google. Haha.
I'm playing it safe.
I really have no idea...
Did you get 4.5 firmware from an online update back when it was current?
I've tested Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity and Lego City Undercover and both of those give you 4.5.0-10U. If you know anyone who owns either it might be worth borrowing the cart for 10 seconds.
I have two 3DS XL's.
I had one from when it first came out and the one with 4.5.0-9U I bought from someone on craigslist. I have no idea how it got that way and is there a difference between the two firmwares?
I was wondering this, too. Your FW is not even on the list @ Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_3DS_system_software
Hmm, that's really strange.
There probably is, but nothing really notable (otherwise, there'd be more talk about it on this board). I'd say you're safe on any 4.5 firmware as long as you don't update.
I only update one of my 3DS's.
I really want to know more about the whole 4.5.0-9U firmware though.
You know, it might be worth sending to someone who has the ability to take NAND dumps and have them make a dump. I haven't heard of anyone having 4.5.0-9U before.
According to the list, 4.2.0-9 -> 4.3.0-10 'Updated eShop, bad word list and NZone hotspot list updated.'
But telling which of those 3 was in the "base" firmware (the 9, 10) part is hard. So yeah, it might be worth looking into. I'd guess it was the eShop, but there's really no way to know.
I know that when I updated via eShop earlier this year, it put me on 4.5.0-10U. Now, maybe Nintendo had an update that didn't last very long, and updated once again, but I'm not sure. I do recall someone else having the 4.5.0-9 FW on this forum, so you're not the only one. It's interesting though, that there's really no documentation on the version you're running. When I googled that FW, I get a bunch of results related to R4 and Acekard, yet nothing official.
I heard of people having 4.5.0-4 and I believe some games updates only the firmware but not the eshop so maybe this 3DS was on 4.2.0-9U and got updated with this kind of games.
this is exactly what has happened
was on 4.2.0-9 then updated with a 4.5.0 Firmware Title
thus updating it to 4.5.0-9
the final digit is purely Online Features version number
i have a 3DS on 4.5.0-0 and 4.5.0-4
Interesting. So the only reason those two games showed 4.5.0-10U for me is because I was already on 4.x.x-10? My system, when I got it, was on some earlier 4.x (I forget which), it was a copyright 2012 box.
So basically, those games only have 4.5.0 and the second firmware isn't affected by game card updates?
Damn, we learn something new everyday.
So uh, how does a console with 4.5.0-0 work? Any differences from 4.5.0-10 (Besides the E-Shop, which you can't access anyway)?
I don't think there IS a difference. If there was, it's very minor, and wasn't worth noting on the wiki page.
I bought my 3ds about a month ago and it came with fw 2.1.0-4u and I used shin megami iv to update and it updated to 4.5.0-4u
