    Ive searched and searched and cannot find an answer. I ordered a gateway card two days ago (not here yet) for my regular 3ds on FW 6.~
    i came across a wicked deal on a mint condition 3ds XL, unfortunately the firmware is at 9.9.0-26u. Will the gateway card work at all on the XL or will it only work on my regular 3ds.

    thanks! and sorry if this has been asked elsewhere.

    Gateway won't work on 9.3 or higher

    I don't suggest you to buy it on 9.9, neither Gateway or any CFW (like rxtools or pasta) will work on the system what that firmware setting, basically, all you can do with a 3ds in 9.9 is:
    1 - Buy a Sky3ds (It only works to play 3ds roms)
    2 - Use Ironhax/Tubehax/Ninjhax (This only works to run homebrew)

    So, i would recommend you finding another 3ds xl, usually, the ones who has a Legit cia (Like the M&L: Dream Team pack) usually have firmwares lower than 9.2, so, this pretty much sumps up the answer you are trying to find.

    Thank you for the clear and concise answer. I guess I'll be selling the xl.
