4.5.10 or something. (Don't feel like checking right now). I haven't updated since the original hack was discovered by neimod. There's very few games worth an outright purchase so I don't care to update yet. Good question btw. I was wondering this the other day

Unfortunately I just bought my 3ds and its on the latest 6.1

Thought I might be able to use my old acekard2i or r4ds card but I was wrong. Just bought a DSTWO supercard. Hope I can figure out how to use it.

You'll have an easier time flashing the supercard to its latest firmware (if it's at a lower one) using a DS or DSlite, DSi is okay too, but the first two are better.

It's really simple on how to use a Supercard. http://gbatemp.net/threads/the-supercard-dstwo-beginners-guide-how-to-setup-the-dstwo.290190/

I can't english today.

Anyway, if it is getting around the EOS that is giving you trouble, it's really straight forward. It's really just about how you set up the cart - and making sure your plugins are properly installed with the icons.

I bought a recent system for the gateway 3ds as they said it will work on 5.0 and of course no I'm screwed because the system came with version 5+
-_-

So i just checked a reseller hoping to pre-order and I saw this.

Taken from one of their re-sellers descriptions of the gateway:
The Gateway 3DS is currently designed to work with up to 5.1.0-11 firmware. The letter at the end is just the region (u, e, a, j, etc). This is not an official product, and it might be possible for Nintendo to attempt to block the functionality of the card with an update. There are no guarantees and no way to tell that the GateWay 3DS would be able to overcome that, so we do not sell the device claming that it will work with any firmware besides the one listed above.

According them, it works on the 5.1.0-11 firmware, but considering the main website says 4.5, I'm a little confused. Anyone want to elaborate?

they are just liars. After advertising it is compatible with 5.x now they are saying it is compatible with 4.x. WTF is that? Glad i didn't listen their bullshit and updated to 6.x.

Well, don't you think people should be smart enough to not update anyway? If you want to have an exploit work / a flashcart to work, then don't update. If you really want the updates (I'm sure nobody wants to), then they should get a second 3DS.

i didn't listen to their advise and updated as i want to be able to use e-shop etc. what i am trying to say is, even though if i didn't update, i would still not be able to use the flashcard as they are obviously lying about the firmware requirement.

also authors told the exploit will not be shared with public, so isn't it useless to stay on old firmware and not using e-shop, not playing new games etc.?

Yeah, because everyone has an extra $160 laying around.

Anyway, I e-mailed both the re-seller and gateway themselves to try and figure this out. I'll let you guys know if they respond.

Going on 2.X IIRC. It's a Zelda LE 3DS and I haven't had time neither wanted to play it for a while. Fire Emblem is waiting to be played along with Tales of the Abyss, but other than those.. Meh. Very few games out so far that I'd be ready to play.

Although, this is a lovely place for people to share this information. I have seen various threads, such as the Gateway one where people are just spamming messages like "lollzz i dnt care, im on 4.5" which fill up the whole thread; making useful information for others, difficult to find.

Nintendo all ready has a new firmware out is called 6.1.0-12U and it update the Mii Plaza and added new stuff on the Mii Plaza. I don't really care about the flash cards any more because Nintendo is cracking down on piracy and it's lot harder to use a flash card.
