    This just came in from the gateway site:


    "After receiving alot of emails with questions on our new 2.0 firmware update, we decided to answer some recurring questions :

    - Are you working on multirom support? Yes, we are working on multirom support. We hope to have it ready for the 2.0 release.

    - Are you working on nand savegame support for pokemon/animal crossing? Yes, we will have pokemon and animal crossing working for the 2.0 release, we will not stop until we have this working!

    - What can I do with emunand? It will emulate the system's storage and redirect it to SD, which allows you to update the "emulated NAND" to latest firmware while still keeping your system's physical NAND storage to 4.5. This means you won't need to miss out on fun things like eShop and more.

    - Will you support retail gamecards? Yes, we will add an option to launch the original firmware (with emunand support) so you can play retail gamecards.

    - Will you support saving without needing to close the application? Yes, we are working on directly updating the savegame file on SD when the savegame chip is being updated. We hope to have it ready for the 2.0 release.

    - Are you working on supporting online play? We will start working on this after the 2.0 release.

    - Are you working on supporting 5.x and 6.x 3DS systems? Yes, we have still not given up hope to support these consoles. But please be patient."

    I have an ambassador 6.3 3ds. With emunand, can I transfert my ambassador 3ds storage to my 6.3 emunand 3ds xl?

    They didn't answer that here, but most likely you will be able to do that.

    GW 2.0 will be epic. Firmware 4.5 is an open book for them!

    Summary: Team Gateway claims their 2.0 update will bring MULTI-ROM SUPPORT, and POKEMON/ANIMAL CROSSING SUPPORT. The future of online gameplay is unclear (see the copypasta,) and finally Team Gateway expresses their hopes and efforts for newer firmware support.

    Look at the Flag...

    Interresting, does that mean even people without gateway will be able to play region free cartridges and use emunand (as long as they're still on 4.5), or maybe they've added some sort of anti-piracy (like you have to insert the red gateway cart before first use).

    Damn, Gateway just keeps shitting on the haters. They didn't answer the most important question though.. ETA for the 2.0 update.

    The 5.x and 6.x support seems like the thing they're least confident in. "Be patient" is probably going to mean several months at the very minimum.

    I hope Nintendo can keep this card blocked and I hope that it will not support online at all. The gateway team has a lot of tricks in their sleeves it seems which is really neat but I hope Nintendo can keep up their security! :3
