    You need to be on 4.1-4.5 for the Gateway, and others, to work.

    Surely don't update with 6.3...
    Maybe you can find a friend with animal crossing new leaf, it have 4.5 update (At least in europe because I can run it on my 4.5 3DS)

    Pokémon Mystery Dungeon gives 4.5 (no lies) and AC:NL, choose one (or both!?!?!)

    I'd pick up Animal Crossing NL since it's the one game you can't enjoy with Gateway.

    Does someone know what's the last number of a firmware for? For example, the regular 4.5 shows as 4.5.0-10X, but the 3DS used in the recent Gateway video showed as 4.5.0-8X and now a user here is saying that updating with Animal Crossing led his console to a 4.5.0-6X firmware.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    Minor flashcart killing revisions and slight fixes.

    Looks like that's my fault then, I skimmed over it. Still, I could have sworn Animal Crossing was 4.5 and the first game to use 5.1 was Mario and Luigi Dream Team

    Edit: Unless newer editions of the game are coming with the update I think the wiki is wrong.

    why not just go to ur local "insert big game shop" and buy a game update and return it because most have pretty lax return policies. Better yet if u just ask to try out a 2nd hand game instore they will probably let u pop it in for a min to try it.

    The problem is I live in Japan. With a American 3DS. I don't have access to those kinds of stores. Is there anyway?

    Then your only option is importing whatever game you choose to use for updating.
