    Hey everyone,

    I just signed up after lurking the forums since the release of the Gateway 3Ds. I decided to purchase a 2012 3DS XL today at my local walmart. I'm aware that the new Pokemon games will be released in a few days and had a question in regards to the online functionality of the Gateway and Firmware spoofing. Please note that my knowledge on the Gateway and how it functions is limited.

    The question: If I purchase a Gateway3DS and an authentic Pokemon game, could I use the firmware spoofing and play online with my authentic title? I know the game hasn't released but if anyone has managed to do the spoofing with an already released title and go online, it would be valuable information to me. Thanks and sorry if the question has been asked.

    They've already confirmed it doesn't, it comes with 6.1.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.

    Any 3DS update for 5.0 or higher will kill the use of the red card.

    You can't play online with Gateway.

    It's more correct to say that retail cartridge games don't show up. My pre-installed Mario Kart 7 on the SD card shows up in Gateway mode.

    One's inner self
    Installed games show up yes
    its because Gateway Mode modifys the Slot 1 Card Loader

    also if you boot a Installed Game e.g Mario Kart 7, the game will be saved like a Gateway game and placed on the SD card iirc

    You're just getting this info? That's kinda been the main issue with Gateway for almost everyone here, the firmware requirements.

    Hopefully with the release of Gateway 2.0 Pokemon X/Y will be dumped fast.

    The 6.X series of 3DS updates were mainly to the effect of mii plaza and save backups, basically the baked in features and apps found on the 3DS.
    The 5.X series of 3DS updates had the save backup and the sleep mode download for eshop.

    Unless they changed the way games saves worked again like they did back then to basically stop the decrypting of XOR save dumps; the firmware spoofer will just work fine.

    Either that or when game devs start to exceed the 1st generation 3DS game cart specs. That will probably be the only time where we will likely see a 3DS firmware update be required by a game that meets the 2nd generation 3DS game cart specs. That is at least 1-3 years from now. That will likely be somewhere in the 7.X or 8.X series of 3DS updates by then.

    Gateway has firmware spoofing to get around this issue.

    Uh.. No.

    It does however have no issue playing games made for FW 5.x minus MH4.
    Technically there's no reason it can't play 6.x games either just pokemon x/y are the first such games so there's none to test yet.
