    So Gateway could be compatible with 6.1.0 ? Guess i'll leave my 3DS on this firmware for the time being

    From what they said, possibly 6.2.0 as well, but anything above that will most likely never be compatible. Also, it can take months if not longer for a 6.1.0 compatibility update, no one knows (not even the gateway team themselves).

    Because from what i tried, the exploit can be installed on a 6.1.0 console, but running the exploit makes the settings crash with an error message saying the 3DS has to reboot, instead of the screens turning black before the menu shows up again. Mind you i installed the exploit with a DSTwo so the DSTwo could be messing up the installation.

    That's not the problem - the memory offset has to be different to execute the same exploit on higher firmwares which is what they're testing now. The blue Gateway cartridge is just an R4 clone, installing from a DSTwo is just fine.

    The DS Settings exploit works, but the kernel access exploit that is then loaded doesn't and they need to find a new one. The DS Settings exploit by itself can't really do anything.

    Installing from any 3DS compatible flash cart is not a problem, and according to Arras and you, its the memory offset and the kernel access exploit that can't be loaded at all. I learn new things everyday thanks to you two :) I won't mess around with it for the moment, and will leave my 3DS on 6.1.0 for the time being, if they ever release an exploit for 6.1.0 i'll probably get the Gateway.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.

    Pick a vendor you like or know.

    All of you using the word "test cart" need to stop calling that, it is a 3DS flashcart that plays 3DS roms, "test cart" makes it sound like you want a freebie.

    It will cost around $80, varies from vendor to vendor trying to either undercut the others for more sales or whatever.

    Gambia, The
    The ROP will only run only a certain Version of the title 000400100002X000. If you had a full Firmware update to an 3DS Version the
    000400100002X000 will be updated.

    Mine is an XL on 4.5.0-10. I heard it worked before to 4.5 and now this thread says 6.1. I just want to make sure: will it work on my firmware? Thanks

    No, the firmware 6.1 is for the BLUE DS mode flashcart that comes with the Gateway. The red 3DS capable one only works from 4.1 to 4.5.

    Oh okay, got it. So I guess that 4.5.0-10 is technically higher than 4.5 huh. Last question: any news on if higher than 4.5 compatibility is on its way anytime soon? Thanks

    Nope, mines on 4.5.1.0 and it's fine. Higher than 4.5 is unknown, but they said that it's a work in progress.

    One's inner self
    makes me wonder

    if we could install the 0.0.0-12 update to our 4.5.0-X consoles if we would regain online features e.g. the E-shop
    as the Firmware Spoofer would do the rest

    Doesn't work that way.
    It will prompt you a screen that tells you to update to 6.2 vr.

    lol you dont get what im saying
    your on about updating everything through the official method

    because we have kernel access there should be a way to extract the "Title" files
    e.g.
    extract the Nintendo Zone hotspot list, CECD module, and BOSS module titles from a 6.2.0-12 and apply them to a 4.5.0-X

    using this method we should be able to downgrade the DS Firm Title and thus would also allow for Older DS flashcards that where blocked to then work

    tho doing this would require the RAM viewer

    with being able to upgrade and Download Firmware without and issue this should be doable

    Since when we have kernel access? I think those ''hacked it'' screens made people think that we have complete access over the console, but I think we are not there yet ...
