Hey guys, I wanted to think of a few things we can do to make sure the new 3DS XL that allows maximum usability without risking losing the potential for Gateway until it arrives. For that I have a few questions: 1 - My firmware version is 9.0. I want to make sure it stays that way. How can I make sure it never tries to update, aside from never setting up wifi? 2 - Say I want to play online with a normal game I have, can I go online in gaming without updating to the latest firmware? I know eShop needs latest update, but do games do as well 3 - What if I want to use spotpass? How can I use spotpass without worrying about an update downloading? Maybe we can compile a suggestions list so that we avoid any unforeseen mistakes, and threads complaining about how they updated or bricked their device!
