    Ello!

    So, I have an O3DS on system 9.6. I was fine just having my cartridges, but now I live in two houses (separation sucks) and I kinda wanna get a Gateway to load my games library on so I only need to bring that one card with me to get all my games.

    Is this possible (yet)?
    If not, any rough estimates on when it will be ready? (pls no SOON™)

    Thanks very much in advance!

    No gateway support for versions over 9.2, and no way to know if there ever will be. You could get a Sky3DS tho, it will play retail game dumps but not eshop dumps or homebrew.

    When I accidentally updated the first 3DS XL I bought, to 9.6, I was devastated. So much so I immediately looked and e-mailed Amazon sellers on what firmware their used 3DSes were. I never wanted to buy a used one, but it was the only way at this point, because those selling new (unopened) ones couldn't answer the firmware question. That would involve them opening the box, thus not being "new" anymore. Considering that I was and still am, in the middle of saving up for a very expensive new PC, blowing $130 for that. Now in hindsight, that $130 would've put me right at the PC, and even enough to buy a blu-ray player right now. It's worth it to have more than one 3DS for web exploits and Gateway, but it ballooned my inventory from 4 3DSes, to 5, and I still plan on getting a Japanese one.

    That being said, I haven't updated that XL, thinking something will come to 9.6, even if it takes forever and a day.
