    So basically, what happened here is, when i saw the Gateway running on the N3DS back in Nov'14. I rushed out and got myself a Jap N3DS and the Gateway cart. Since then, i've been wondering if my Gateway cards are working as they've been in the box all the time.

    So today, i took both the red and blue card out, plugged in a microsd card and inserted them into my N3DS and a 3dsXL that i've got. It seems that nothing shows up on the screen. Is there any test i can do to see if mine are "dead or arrival" units or if they're working, without ver4.5 set now?

    I don't think there's any way to tell until the update comes out but nothing showing up is completely normal

    there is no way to test red card i think
    but if u want to test ur blue card u can just download the firmware from their offical website and copy to ur tf card
    if it's works the 3ds will display a sword icon on screen.

    Oh no. Mine doesn't even show a sword icon. Think I'll try to format my microsd card and try again. Hope at least the red card is working somehow.

    really? the blue card in mine can display a icon and if i click the 3ds will say the error occurred.
    its happened in my japanese N3DS 8.1 and AUS 3DS 6.3 system

    just download the newest 2.7 firmware and there has a blue card firmware inside.

    Did you put the files in the MicroSD card like you're suppose to?

    I have 9.2 but I can still see the Icon and it's called "Deep Labyrinth Atlus USA, Inc."

    Loading the Icon will give you a black screen/error message.

    Awkwardly, you can put ANYTHING you want on the MicroSD for the Blue Card and it'll still display the Sword icon. ;)

    Of course, I always get an error anyways, as is to be expected.
