    Hey guys, I'm new to GBAtemp and I was wondering if anyone could offer some information regarding what I should do since updating my 3ds. I just want to know if it's possible that in a year, there are flash carts (That run 3ds game backups) supporting this firmware and if there won't be, why? If it's not even a possibility then I will get a replacement 3ds but if it's a possibility then I will probably wait until the card is developed. Please offer me some wisdom.

    Current flashcarts that run 3ds roms only work on 4.1-4.5. The exploit was fixed in future versions. It cannot be said for sure, but as things stand now, there is no evidence suggesting that there will be support for future versions. My suggestion, get a 4.x firmware console, don't bother waiting.

    Maybe maybe not, but so far there is no indication at all that gateway will be compatible with anything above 4.5

    Keep your current 7.1 if you plan to buy and play games that will be released later this year as there is a major limitation that makes them unable to work with flash carts for now.

    If you want older games, invest in a 4.x and a cart that works.
