    So,

    Just got a 3DS (normal version) from a Dutch retailer.

    The box says (c) 2011, so I hoped the 3DS had < 4.6 firmware

    So I went to system configuration and it says 1.0.0.0E there, is this the software version(and am I really lucky) or is this not the Firmware version?

    Serial: CEH1022XXXX

    Thanks,

    Tim

    If it says it's 1.0.0.0E it probably is.

    Now you only have to update it to 4.5 somehow =P

    1.0.0-0E

    1.0.0 = System menu version
    0 = eshop version
    E = European

    You just bought a "launch day" model, which has the first System menu version installed on it.

    If you use the online update menu, it will update it to 7.0.0-12E
    If you want to keep your console at a lower version to use a Flashcarts, you need to update using a game (up to 4.5.0)
    Your console will then be 4.5.0-0E (I think games don't update eshop at all. Mine is 4.5.0-5E)

    Thanks in advance!

    Time to update! I read that Luigi's Mansion 2 will work, and can get my hands on that so that's great.

    Any great sites where I can order gateway? (shipping to Europe/The Netherlands) Or should I just search by myself?

    Thanks again guys!

    Don't forget Marktplaats. That's where I got mine. The guy I bought it from sent it immediately and I had it in my mail the next day, and for a cheap price too.
    Also, if you just happen to be the Tim that I know... Hi. Small world.

    Man, I thought I was lucky buying a 3DS at v3.0, but 1.0? Good job with that steal.

    Yeah... It's almost like an article of history or something.
    I'd almost say it's worth it to make a NAND backup of this 1.0 Firmware... Just so you'll always have that piece of history.

    Yeah. For interested people in The Netherlands:

    Just checked, all black/red 3DS that are left at Dixons (almost every store has at least one left) comes probably with 1.0.0.0

    They're not that expensive though. Only 129 until 31 dec.

    You get 10 euros off with 'Gulle Gift' promotion.

    Checked 5 places, all 2011 (c) and serial like mine..

    One has all my old data on it that I don't want to lose. Nostalgic value that a system transfer can't do.
    The second is a limited edition 3DS XL
    The third is my 4.2 3DS XL. Not going to sell that for a 1.0 regular 3DS =P

    Also, money is not the issue.
    (And yes, I know you weren't really serious)

    The tongue emoticon implied it wasn't serious... If you were serious, what was the purpose of that emoticon?
