    I mean how to play online, you can't play online unless your game is not up to date.

    Did gateway support downloading game updates? If so, and this is my limited knowledge, if eshop is blocked now, would it be possible to install an update in any other way? Also, I feel that emunand will eventually come out for 9.3+, just it will take some time. But, I don't know.

    Probably they'll wait massive selling recod for new 3ds. Then they'll relase it

    No, I don't think so. Gateway's pretty honest, not in it for the money, that much at least. At the moment they're either waiting out on nintendo to patch things, or the more likely option, they're still stabilising the update. There's no reason they'd wait for N3ds sales when the update also works on OG 3ds's, XL's, and 2ds's.

    So I guess they bricked people's 3DSs for no reason, right?

    No one said that Emunand is not supported in 9.x update.

    Somehow they're planning to support 8.x version...

    You may be able to install game updates by installing the updates with cia files in the dev menu, but I expect you will need the latest firmware version to play online anyway.

    Sorry, haven't kept up with all of gateway's history, did they ever release an intentional brick? Or, was it something that was overlooked/done incorrectly?


    That's what I was wondering! But, I'm guessing updates might encrypt to the 3ds's data. And .cia files probably work much differently than updates. And, I can still go online on SSB4 on 9.2, at least last time I checked.

    You can install game updates via .cia and if U look around U can already find them.

    So far Nintendo's ploicy has not to require formware update specifically for online play. As long as you have the game and required update you can play online.....we will see if this changes but I doubt it will as it may not be easy for Nintendo to implement in this generation.

    They intentionally bricked people with Gateway clones, or with modified files. Some people had modified Gateway files, with legitimate Gateway cards and their 3DSs got bricked too. This caused them to gain the nickname "Brickway".
