    I know that the 3DS Setup is for use with R4i Gold Deluxe (I think it was called?), but I set it up anyways, and I'm wondering if updating my 3DS now will potentially brick my console?

    Sorry, I wrote the original post whilst I was half asleep.
    I'm using the latest version of the 3DS's OS, and I don't own the R4i Gold Deluxe, but I did the 3DS Setup anyways, and I was just wondering if updating the next time an update is available would brick the system.

    Download the lastest mt mard launcher and create a emunand with it, then use it for updating the 3ds to lastest Version to use eshop and co without lose your 4.x original firmware

    Guys, he's just asking if eventual firmware updates will brick his console since he activated the "3DS Setup" option in the DS flashcard. He doesn't have a R4i 3DS Deluxe nor says he wants to use a flashcard. xD

    I think there shouldn't be problems otherwise we'd have known it by now. But don't take this as 100% sure.

    since your console is on the last firmware its useless activate the 3ds setup. there shouldn't be a problem but don't use it... also try a ds game or play a game on flashcard to make sure its reseted...

    if you had 4.x and had a gateway\r4 deluxe, every time you you played a DS game you would need to install the 3ds setup again

    ~2015 thread, necro lol.. already forgot most of stuff from back then

    that option is the old gateway setup.
    it was used to install the "exploit" in the 3ds to run 3ds games, back in 4.5 firmware era... (only works in firmware 4.x)
    back when you needed a gateway to run 3ds games...

    anyway, it's obsolente, you should not use that anymore.
    install a proper and updated cfw https://3ds.guide/ in your 3ds

    that just changed some stuff in the DS wifi config, if you installed in last firmware it was patched and extremely likely it didn't do anything..
    you are safe lol
