Does gateway support newest firmwares V9.8.0-25J etc?
No it doesn't
A sky3ds is your only choice here
Read the thread in my signature.
If your firmware supports it, the real question is the opposite : is there any reason to get Sky3DS over Gateway? (spoiler : no)
Or if you are feeling flush, buy both.. Sit back and relax
There's no reason to buy Sky3DS over Gateway, as long as you're on the required firmware version. There's no reason to ever buy a Sky3DS unless you're on a firmware version that Gateway doesn't support.
Or if you need cubic Ninja and that cart is higher priced then a sky3ds.
Im getting n3ds so prolly on one of the newest firmwares.
Apoptygma's guide to: should I buy a gateway or a sky3ds?
why is this link not slammed at people as the very first thing they see?
On www.gateway-3ds.com there is a beta Gateway firmware which claims to support 9.8. Can anybody confirm if this actually works?
They mean it supports 9.8 EMUNAND on o3ds
Damn, Gateway should that it is really misleading...
No Gateway does not support 9.8 sysnand.
Gateway can only emulate 9.8 (emunand) on console <= 9.2
so much h8 for sky3ds (jk)
I know my sky3ds will takeover someday and even play cia
Ah ok, thank you for clarifying. I'm not 100% sure I understand the difference between emunand and sysnand. Am I correct in thinking that sysnand is the FW version which is actually installed in the console (through the built in system update) and emunand is like a virtual FW provided by the Gateway? So the built in FW version stays at or below 9.2 so the GW can still work, and the emunand gets updated with more recent versions so that newer software can run which requires the later versions. Is that correct?
Thanks. Just been searching and unless I'm missing something there is no way to downgrade sysnand. Is anybody working on this? Would love to get down to 9.2 so I can use GW.
I don't think that they are working on something like that (or if it is even possible).
If it was possible however, i think it would require a hardmod.
I remember back when I modded my DS Lite I had to short out two pins on the PCB which IIRC made one of the ROM chips rewriteable, and an exploit then wrote a patched FW version which allowed unsigned code to run. But I guess it would be too much to ask for anything like that to be possible with the 3DS models
That was the case for me. OOT was also not much cheaper than buy a sky. Best to have both really, you can't go wrong. At least if you accidentally update you can still play with sky (plus don't have to do the browser exploit which is good while traveling). Gateway has a lot more features though. I got both for a bit over £110, worth it in the long run.
I'm not sure but I don't think you can remove games.
I read something about that too but didn't really understand it. I'm sure I read that the Sky stores a record of which games have been installed and even if you format the SD card you can't install different games. Is that really correct?
