    So i bought a nintendo 3ds from a guy today and it came with the firmware 1.0.
    My question is.. can i run Gateway here? on this firmware or i have to update it to 4.1/4.5? If Yes how can i do this safely?

    Thank you so much

    you have to buy a game with 4.1.0 - 4.5.0 to update the console and then you can use a Gateway on it

    GW just work on filmware 4.1-4.5

    You have to update your 3DS filmware to 4.1-4.5. Never use internet to update, just buy original game cart with fw 4.1-4.5 and u can use it to update your 3DS filmware (List game fw 4.1 - 4.5, u can choose 1 http://www.eurasia.nu/wiki/index.php/3DS_Games_with_firmware_updates_in_the_4.1_-_4.5_range).

    GOOD LUCK :D

    Go to this website http://3ds.essh.co/ and it is a complete list of dumped games.....in the far right is the firmware version each game shipped with on it's udpate partition.....some of the popular ones with 4.x update are Luigi's DM, DK Country, Fire Emblem, and SMT IV. Get one of those and perform the update and you are good to go....I also got a 3DS NIB off a guy that had 1.0....updated with Luigi's DM and everything works peachy with Gateway.

    There is no difference. Why don't you borrow a game from someone just to update?

    Let me see if i get this right. I have been reading but i am not 100% sure on one thing. I know i have to run the blue card for install the gateway, then i can use the red card to play 3ds roms. But when i power off. then when i power it on what i have to do ? just go to the settings> profile and runs the red card? or i have to put the blue card and install the stuff again? If no. in that occasion do i have to use the blue card again?

    Thank you for all the help.

    Yes, you just go to DS Profile and it boots into Gateway Mode. You'll only need to reinstall the hack with the blue card if you ever use DS Mode on the 3DS again.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    He is one of the few that got one when they were first released and never updated it.
