    The gateway only works on 4.5, it might work on later versions in the future, but the more you update the less your chance of being able to use it.

    Most likely they are looking at the 6.2.0 firmware for a new exploit so if they update it should work on that version but no one knows.
    I haven't updated from 6.1.0 myself yet and I'm not sure whether I should or not. The Gateway is looking better and better with every news update and if I update to 6.2.0 and then they release an update that works up to 6.1.0 I'll be pissed at myself.

    If you got a friend, borrow a game that is known to have the 4.1 or 4.5 firmware update.

    Devs, both Gateway and reverse engineers, have code execution up to v6.2. That means both the possibility of finding a new kernel exploit (for backups & other cool things) or getting homebrew code to run. Definitely don't update past 6.2 (where it will certainly be patched), there is much more good stuff to come.

    the flashcart will work on 4.1 you can be on any firmware version 4.5 and below.

    the DS Gateway card was blocked with 6.2 but no word if it can be updated, but it is a R4ids.cn R4i Gold 3DS

    the Gateway card software is stored on the Launcher.dat on the 3DS SD Card
