    Let me translate that for you "we wait till someone other makes a real 3DS flashcard relabel it and send it to you".

    i Like the fact what the Gateway is, is a Alternative DS Mode Firmware that allows access to the 3DS Hardware, like the Linux for vWii that allows for the WiiU Hardware
    but if you use the Normal DS Firmware you have to reinstall the "Gateway 3DS DS Mode" firmware
    interesting stuff
    need to play with one

    the that is interesting thing will be to see

    how the DS mode is "patch" to use 3ds mode hardware

    people will try and make a homebrew app , thet could do the same thing as the blue card

    also will Nintendo, be able tell if something is off with the 3ds/DS FW after it is changed

    Do you believe the gateway can run on 5.X or 6.X firmware?

    Why did they say so,only to sell more units or it may happen?

    its not the fact if it can run on them because they wont

    what it appears to do
    is install a Custom DS Mode Firmware, that has access to the 3DS hardware
    so it is running off a custom firmware, thats in DS Mode

    meaning they can modify the firmware to allow for changes than the standard
    e.g. saving to the 3DS SD card
    so modifying it should be possible

    So that I have a 3DS with latest 6.0.1.12 or so am I screwed?

    I will have to wait for another exploit or hack?

    I just bought it as 2nd hand with that firmware.

    If this info is true, then it means a CFW solution is entirely possible in the near future...

    For the purposes of using the gateway you are indeed screwed, until somebody hacks 6.x. Dont expect gateway to do it.

    Pretty exciting.
    I personally won't be buying one (mostly because I already own most of the games gateway supports, and I don't have the required firmware :P)
    But also because its not quite a homebrew cart and muti ROM cart.
    But I support the team to the fullest and hope to see much more 3DS home brew development :grog:

    No region free, so still no interest for me.

    Region locking is the only reason I wanted one of these devices to be made. Hopefully they get around that soon and confirm region free for all games on all versions of the 3DS...

    Speaking of which, since all the newer games are forcing the update I wonder how long it'll actually take them to get a fix for the later firmwares.

    i wouldn't upgrade just for the sake of upgrading. if there isn't a specific game you want to play that requires it, why not just hold out and hope for the best? nobody knows what the future will bring
