    I looked around, They all say it only works to 9.2 but the newest beta firmware has support of up to 10.3, So I am looking into purchasing one, But I would imagine to update id need a 9.2 3ds. Also, As a small note, How do people run regular ds games on it?

    It doesn't support 10.3 yet, but will sometime soon. The physical product is the same regardless of firmware, and you just use a minisd card to update the card itself.

    Any gateway can be updated to 3.6.2.
    Gateway team is working on support for 10.3, it doesn't have it already. Stay on 9.2 and use emunand.
    Any 3DS can be downgraded to 9.2 at this point.

    Also, when you say "new 3ds", do you mean a 3DS unit which you have just recieved, or is it a N3DS (the model with the additional shoulder buttons and thumbstick)?

    First off, gateway doesn't support 10.3 yet. Secondly, The card itself is the same regardless off firmware version. Third, Downgrades are now possible and quite stable on EU/US O3DS.

    Yeah I just seen haha So you just copy over the firmware files? Doesnt actually update the card itself like cyclods? Just runs the firmware files off the sd card?
    I have a new 3ds xl, And It even says in the downgrade app it can cause a brick. I am not trying to take that risk really.

    Yep, when you download Gateway's firmware, you put their launcher.dat on your 3ds' SD card, and it updates that way. Take a look at their manual for a peek at how it works, it's on the downloads page on their website.

    Usually any updates are released in cia form, no issues. I've been on a 9.2 emunand with Gateway since 9.2 came out and no problems playing any recent games that come out.
