    Hi all,

    I was wondering if you can guide me, I have 3ds still running on the original firmware 1.1.0 (E)

    It has never been updated, from what i have read i cannot use the gateway as it support firmware 4.1 to 4.5, is this right.

    Can you advise a link where i can update the firmware of the 3ds manually

    I was looking at the gateway as it seems to be be the a good card on the market with good review.

    Thanks in advance

    My personal site of preference is http://3ds.essh.co/ for checking games, their updates, etc. What I did to update my 3DS is used a free trial for an online game rental service (Gamefly here in the US). I rented a game confirmed to be at 4.5, updated, and returned the game before the free trial expired so I was never charged. Not sure if there's a similar type of service in the UK, but it might be worth looking into.
