    With the Gateway can you still play retail carts, or does the game (I.E Zelda)make you upgrade to the new firmware, like is it one or the other?

    No, Any game which you can't play with Gateway you won't be able to play as a retail cart. The reason being is that it will still ask for the firmware update.

    What does it look like he did?

    OP - you can still play retail carts as long as the game does not require anything greater than SM 4.5.x-x. Anything else would need to be played on the Gateway, which may or may not be able to support the game (such as some of the newer games, which don't work)

    This may change with emunand, if it ever releases. Though at that point might as well play the rom.

    Went to an internet message board
    [insert pic of crying chick here]
    Someone asked a question!


    Anyway, I wish they'd get some way to play Zelda on 4.5, I want to play it, I dont' mind buying it retail, but I don't want to lose potential future hacks FOREVER.

    Not at the moment, no. With 2.0, it should be possible.
