    Yesterday the Gateway 3DS team posted an update on their homepage. They are stating that all 3DS firmwares up to 9.2 (included) will be supported, and that the update will be published soon.

    We kinda already knew already but whatever.

    On another note: You've been more active lately. You hibernate from spring - fall and come out during winter?

    some people in the news team will be fired for not reporting this to the homepage earlier and making me look bad when I post it :P

    oh crap I don't know my own site rules...

    *goes ahead and changes the rules*

    Pretty sure those who bricked their 3DS because of it is a little regretful. ;)

    Good for other users to be able to enjoy it though! I had one myself, but sold it when I got tired of my 3DS. :(

    no one knows how exactly its going to work on higher firmware but on 4.5, all you do is format the card to exFAT and drop your roms onto it

    i was very "hyped" about this update...

    but, since nintendo release 9.3 and 9.4 update, i really doesnt care anymore

    i mean, gateway team already said which dont support 9.3 9.4 any time soon, so the situation will gone be the same

    3ds user with 4.5 + gateway = emunand (like me)

    3ds user with 9.0/9.2 + gateway = emunand as well

    BUT

    gateway is a thousands steps foward sky3ds, with homebrew and free region support

    the only thing them have to achieve is work in 9x versions without emunand and stuff, full support in any version

    like dstwo in their days... nintendo releases a update, a day or a couple of hours after that, dstwo team release a new version of firmware to work in new version

    I KNOW, its not that simple nowadays

    but i can dream, can i

    Of course no. Sky3DS is not as good as GW. Most of users are waiting for the GW than buying a "NEW" Sky3DS

    We won't wait forever, hope they can release right away, otherwise, sky3ds also is a better next candidate

    And then your screwed next update, forced to buy a new traffic light system cart with more colored buttons. Quit moaning and wait like everyone else does who has an ounce of sense , otherwise buy the fricken games.

    Some Temper said something about a SuperCard 3DS coming sooner than we think and that he was offered a sample/review unit.

    Why people hate Sky3DS so much? Because it has survived like 5 Updates and keep working on the latest FW? Or Gateway employees here on GBATemp.
