    Its brand new, and comes with 4.2 firmware, but i read that the gateway only works with this old firmwares. So my question is: Can I connect to the internet and avoid the update?
    Its better to let it update?

    Thanks ;)

    Of course, you can connect to the internet. The only problem is that your system will nag you to install the update when you wake the 3DS from sleep mode. Of course, that's if you're the average user and never blocked Nintendo's download servers for the updates through your router.

    In other words, make sure you ALWAYS decline the system update prompt.

    You don't need to update inorder to use the web browser butI hardly see why you would want to its crappy & I constantly get communication errors & sometimes the page doesn't finish loading hopefully there will be a homebrew browser in the future

    Yes. If you have a Gateway, you can also enable the internet connection only on the emuNAND so you won't get the update nag on your regular NAND.

    Seriously, the web browser is awful. Not worth the risk.
