    Currently, Gateway 3DS card only support 3DS V4.00, 3DS V4.3.0, 3DS V4.4.0, 3DS V4.5.0.
    http://r43ds.net/news/95/Gateway-3DS-card-use-guide.html

    Im on firmware 4.10 E-8. Does this mean I need to update? The PDF says 4.1-4.5

    I just installed the files on the bluecard, Installed gateway. Succesfull.

    Then I copied all the same files that were on that microsd to the Internal SD card of the 3ds. + the launcher.dat

    Then I launched GW mode I think by going in settings and pressing Nintendo DS Profile. Not sure if this is one time use or need to do it everytime?I got returned to 3DS main menu btw after this not sure if this is normal.

    Ok so I used win32diskimager-v0.9 to write my 3ds image to my newly formatted flashcard (with panasonic formatter size format: on) it was unreadable after in windows explorer and asked for format. Eventhough win32disk image said write succesfull.

    So I tried it in the red card, and booted up. Nothing showed.

    Im kinda clueless now what to try 0_0 Please assist thanks!

    (do I also need all the Gateway files to copy on the Microsd that goes in the red gatewaycard?)

    The exploit (After you do nintendo DS profile) makes a gray screen, then black and reboot into home menu. If your 3DS do that then it's good. Gateway works with your firmware. Maybe you just restarted the 3DS ? You need to do the Nintendo DS profile each time you want to use the gateway.

    To your answer, I formatted BEFORE copying the 3ds image using win32diskimager. So then I wrote image and its unreadable, thats normal? OK.... Good I suppose.

    You only need to copy launcher.dat to root folder
    well it cant hurt I guess to have launcher.dat and the install files on internal 3DS SD card. But I made sure of it anyway.

    Hmmm Seems I managed to get it running! thanks! Don't I ever need to install the blue card again for playing ONLY 3ds games? (already own dstwo) So I can just install games on the microsd that goes into the blue card?

    Thanks alot btw for fast reply!

    Just restart your 3DS and it'll be back to normal.

    You need to use blue card each time you start a DS or DSi mode game.

    It seems that you deactivated GW mode, maybe you turned off your console before inserting the red cart. Please, follow the instructions given to you by the users who have answered you.

    As for your last question, if you have DS or DSi games (eShop DSi), everytime you use one of those, the DS hack is deactivated and you'll need to reactivated via blue cart again.

    Thanks! it is working like intended now. However you really need to go to settings each time you reboot? Sigh. ANyways props to gateway3ds team!

    (savegames are stored internal SD right? in root? Like .sav files? )

    Yeah I see them great! 3.sav files No way of telling which is what game though. Are "normal" retail 3ds games also stored like that with their saves?

    Can i acces the Eshop still and if not what is holding me back?

    I am using Kingstom Class 10 8 GB

    Have you bought these cards from a shop or on the net? Some cards bought from ebay for example are fake and doesn't work (They corrupt the data)

    You can't acces eshop because eShop force you tu update. The retail games doesn't store saves like that, in retail games there is an EEPROM chip which is used for saving (For AC:NL and maybe pokemon X/Y it's a nand but all the time the save is in the retail cart itself, not inside the 3DS memory or SD card)
