Hey people,Really I need your help with this...
3ds xl serial number (sw10001) supports gateway?
Is it running 4.5 firmware? If yes, then yes, it is. If no, then no, it isn't.
The model number is not important. The version needs to be between 4.1 and 4.5. If it is too low, update using an actual game card. Never use the internet to update. If version is 5.0 or higher, you are not going to be able to use the Gateway, currently.
i haven´t made the purchase yet but i want to know if the in 3nds xl serial number (sw10001) have a firmware installed by default with gateway supported.
It might work. I think most XLs have sw12+. Lower number the better your chances but it's no guarantee. Is this a new console you're buying?
yeah, this is a new console.
Then the best you can do is buy it and see what FW version it has.
The highest reported Nintendo Serial Number that came with 4.5.0:
Red/Black 3DS XL: SW1279xxxx x [DemiseScythe]
Blue/Black 3DS XL: SW1278xxxx x [drfsupercenter] (SW1335xxxx x reported > 4.5.0 [tlee22])
Pink/White 3DS XL: SW1286xxxx x [liquidsolidyetboth]
If the one you are interested in has serial sw10001 then it is most likely below 4.5. To use a gateway you will need firmware versions 4.1 to 4.5. My guess based on that serial number is that it might even be below 4.1 in which case you would need to get a game that was released on 4.1 to 4.5 and load the new firmware using that game. Also, if it is not a new and sealed package there is a good chance its been upgraded to firmware above 4.5. Anyway I hope that helps.
Can you tell me which games were published between 4.1 - 4.5 please?
Go here and it lists all the games with 4.1 to 4.5
Please note that you need an original game to do this update, it will not work using a copy.
