"As a development team we are especially excited to announce the start of our long term dream to enable 3DS home-brew. We have long awaited the time to be able to start working on opening up your 3DS to the amazing home-brew talent. This is not a trivial feat to accomplish and it will take time ! In the meanwhile we will of course continue to enhance the GW3DS with rich features.

shout out to emo kid 68 for discovering an interesting fact about our Gateway installer inhibiting the update nagger ! ( If there are no apps awaiting installation (just delete them) then after running our blue card GW installer the update nagger disappears)"

It's awesome that they gave me a shoutout :)




Good work emo kid!

well they must be reading up on this forum. How else would they have noticed i reported the update nag disappearing?


Is it safe to assume that support for 5.x/6.x is being worked on or if it will be worked on in the future? I would really love to have one of these despite my uh, mistake I made on the 3DS ;)

maybe. but being worked on and actually getting it to work are two totally different things. You could just get a cheap 4.5 3ds from craigslist or amazon while they are still available

Hmmm....dammit.... and I just spent money on a trade at Gamestop for a 3DS XL....I wouldn't even know if the one I get from Craislist has that version, besides, I like the XL better :(

I'll stop bothering you guys about it, but yeah, it seems many of those who effed their 3DS by updating it accidentally are boned:unsure:

You can ask the seller on craigslist/amazon what firmware its on. I got a 4.5 xl from amazon. If you can get the money then I would recommend trying to get a 4.5 xl

Can't now due to how much I just spent on the trade, I feel like an idiot for accidentally updating it prior to this announecment. I've lost all hope in ever using this device on new firmware. Damn... SO yeah, looks like there's no chance in those who updated theirs.
:(

I know that feeling. I updated an old xl of mine(it was broken so i had to get a new one) from 4.5 to 5.0 just because i wanted to test my flashcart.... Ya its not a good feeling. But don't worry too much. If there is a way then I'm sure the gateway team will figure it out.

And you bought this 3DS from Gamestop amirite? Why not just return it, and get another? Unless you bought it new.

I bought it, but from a trade from my old 3DS (which wasn't on 4.5) and paid the difference. Are all XL's (including the black one) on 4.5 by default? The used and new prices aren't that different, but I wonder if they'd let me trade for a red XL or Black. Will give them a call ;)

Edit: Damn, I wouldn't get full credit; $120 would be the most I get, meaning I'd be out $80...bollocks. This sucks big time :( Notta chance in hell for us poor saps who are on 6.x.

Ugh, sorry, been a crazy last couple of days. I made a mistake and now I pay the price for it. I've no choice to wait, short of spending more money.
