Gateway FW spoof works for DS flashcarts too?

    I have hesitated to update my 3DS to 4.5 because that would block my Acekard 2i. However, with Gateway firmware spoofing, does that also work to trick DS flashcarts into running on newer firmware? i.e. could I update to 4.5 then use Gateway spoofing to get my Acekard 2i to run?

    The gateway spoof changes the version string and/or check that's done by 3DS games.

    Which has nothing to do with how DS games are booted, which uses a whitelist.
