    access to the red card doesn't help. Other than those who insist on using .3ds format roms, the only point of GW is its superior cheat engine (specifically what it gives us to search for the cheats), and we need to be able to make the loader run on newer firmwares. The frustrating part is that it's more than likely as simple as changing the memory addresses to apply patches to (simple, if we had the source)

    As for Gateway.firm, I'm well aware, as I helped out with its creation. I used a hex editor with a few file versions of GW, identified the chunk that loads the rest of the cfw (then dumped that chunk as it's own file), and passed it on to the guy who knew how to make the firm with it. I'd have to dig deep in my post history to find that thread...

    Such as "latest FW (11.14)", no. But it's possible a frankenfirmwared EmuNand on 11.14.

    And the steps to achieve it are on the first post of this thread and also confirmed here (I suppose):

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/gateway-gw3d-11-10-b9s-and-cfw.550040/page-6#post-9267407

    PS: Frankenfirmwared means "partially updated".

    if on 11.2 you don't have to do anything, you only need a frankenand to run gateway above 11.2

    Thank you so much for this tutorial, I can't believe I'm actually using my Gateway FlashCard after all this time.

    Before I came here and follow this tutorial, I installed boot9strap using (safecerthax) on my Old3DS 11.13 following the tutorial on 3ds.hacks.guide and then updated to 11.14.

    After I installed boot9strap and Luma3DS, I created the emuNAND using godmode9, I chose the multinand 2x (2GB for emuNAND) and then followed this tutorial.

    The only problem I'm having is the system is asking me to update whenever I try to launch eShop (on both sysnand and emunand). If I go to System Settings and then update (it does not matter if I'm on emuNAND or sysNAND) I won't be able to launch gateway (black screen).

    If I go and update using system settings and then downgrading using sysupdating with the 5x files provided, the Gateway will boot up nice and easy, but I won't be able to access eshop.

    It looks like every change I made while on emuNAND the same happen on my sysNAND.

    Did I miss something?

    EDIT: I also noticed that I have just 1 folder under Nintendo 3DS folder on my Nintendo 3DS SD Card. Do I need to unlik sysNAND and emuNAND, to do that, I need to backup both my SD Card and emunand.bin and then format the emuNAND, right? (All my games and homebrews are installed on sysNAND, will I keep them if I restore after format?)

    Yeah you want to unlink your nands, that way you can have a full 11.14 sysnand, eshop will not work on the gateway emunand, at this point do you really need it, but will still function on the sysnand

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You can just format the sysnand with sd card ejected to unlink, you can back up the sysnand and restore it to emunand then format sysnand

    When on the emunand you probably get a pop up that'll keep asking to update, just ignore it

    Eshop will not work when using a patched emunand to run gateway above 11.2 (it will run fine on sysnand using luma3ds)

    If you read the tut, you need to install cfw (b9s or fastboot3ds) as a prerequisite anyway

    Thank you for your response. What would be the best way to update to 11.14 while preserving my saves in gatewayemunand and normal emunand that I've played real cards in?

    Just install b9s and luma3ds, then boot said gateway emunand (back this up) using luma3ds, update it to 11.14 (with b9s or fastboot3ds updating via system settings is safe)



    Then Run the sysupdater patches, to allow the emunand to boot in gateway mode

    You can then boot gw3d directly on 11.14

    Luma3ds can boot sysnand or emunand

    Everything in gateway mode works, including online multiplayer if you have private headers, I have not encountered the fabled gateway bricker on my $15 3ds mode flash card

    If you wanna be cheap and buy a clone or knock off, you get what you pay for

    Just remember what you're buying

    I think there could have been much more done with 3ds flashcards, especially for emulation and hardware expansions

    Does the eshop work? I might just buy another 3ds, transfer my Pokemon over, upload them to the bank off of that and then start fresh on my 3ds with luma.

    Or could I update using this - https://gbatemp.net/threads/gateway-11-14-is-here-if-someone-cares.582960/ and then use the eshop?

    No, not on the emunand,it only works using the sysnand with luma3ds

    What this tut does is create a dual boot system

    You choose to boot gateway mode, or boot luma

    Gateway will only ever see the emunand, luma will have access to both


    Eshop will not work when booting the emunand


    It will work fine on the sysnand

    Really you just need to copy your .sav


    You will only have one emunand which is the gateway emunand (nand emulated using sd card either created using gateway or godmode9) and your sysnand (your actual system storage)

    Follow the tut

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    If you already have created a gateway emunand, youll have to install luma3ds, boot the emunand update it to 11.14 and patch it using sysupdater

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Anything on the emunand will remain intact, including saves, if you don't format it

    Okay, thank you for all your information. I used to be really good at all this but when you take a break everything moves on, lol.
    So can LUMA boot the emunand from gateway? I still think the easiest and safest option is to transfer them (my Pokemon) over to another console and then start fresh with luma. I'm not as bothered about keeping the save as I will just want to play these again from scratch.
    There is a hack I used to use, allowed shop to work on later emunands, does this not work anymore?

    Luma3ds and gateway are two different cfw

    You boot either luma3ds or gateway3ds, again you need to install b9s or fastboot3ds

    You can still load eshop, it will not download anything

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Another note for anti flash card people your efforts allow the 3ds to miss out on things like (thanks):

    dserial1-medium.jpg DSCN10731.jpg url(19).jpg url(2).png url(20).jpg url(21).jpg
    738px-Midi-overview(1).jpg


    People just want free games, and cheating now

    This is what flash cards actually allow us to do, since they allow hardware expansions, which code/software can't do alone

    Hey thank you for making this awesome thread. I finally can play with my gateway cart again.
    Regarding eshop, I can still download updates for my games on the gateway cart. I went to eshop it asked to update the firmware of emunand to the latest version which I did and could access it, then grabbed the updates from eshop. After that I closed eshop then re-ran sysupdate for gateway cart to work again. My games on gateway cart started with the updates applied.
    I can do this several times without issue it seems.

    B9s/fastboot3ds is a bootrom exploit/replacement you can run whatever you want, the n3ds and n2ds have enough to run linux with decent/usuable performance

    It's not patchable via software


    But you can just download the update as a cia and use FBI to install it

    Agree, downloading the update as a cia and use FBI to install it is much less of a hassle. :)
