    This is so misunderstood and FRAUDENTLY claimed in their release notes

    They hint that there may be some new release soon, but we all know what that means.

    Garyopa over at maxconsole is claiming this will be possible very very soon ( http://gbatemp.net/threads/gateway-3-0-ultra.378041/page-45#post-5266617 ) - so let's see shall we?

    No it isn't, an Icon is not a "feature"

    The code is in the launcher. That's why the option is there. However it won't work until gateway uploads the files.

    Then why announce it in the release notes?

    There are no "files" - stop kidding yourself

    Click the option then, it will ask you for the downgrade files which have not been released yet

    That's really not a very convincing argument

    Just report this guy for trolling. He's obviously a PagaN/Thomas type of guy.

    You're right. Gateway included that icon and in their release notes just to screw with us. It's all just a big lie. You sure gottem.

    But seriously now just wait, they will deliver

    Let him be - when gateway releases the files he'll find them and cry a river of salty tears because his theory was wrong all along.

    LOL - Compared to Gateway - I'm a troll am I?

    IF they release "files" to enable all the world's Nintendo 3DS's to be downgraded to 4.5 sysnand then I will eat (a part of) my underpants.

    No theory. It's been possible for awhile. There was the info released a few weeks (month?) ago or so that allowed you to cross flash your 3ds to another region.

    I don't think the downgrade packs are gonna actually downgrade the whole firmware. There was some thread a few weeks ago, where someone was able to get blocked DS flashcards working on EmuNAND by tricking the system into installing some older software parts, that didn't blacklist many flashcards. Gateway will probably do the same sort of thing: Trick the system into installing older software parts, that are used in firmware 4.x, to get Gateway working without the need to go to the exploit webpage every time (they'll pretty much downgrade the DS Profile mode stuff so that Gateway can be booted offline.) None of that is official obviously, but it's my guess. Plus, it's way easier on their servers for people to download a few older software parts than an entire copy of the 4.x firmware (which can be around 1 GB.)

    Stop being a derp. Gateway has released everything they've ever promised they would. Why the hell would you bet against them with that existing track record?

    If the feature is there why haven't they released the assets?
    - The feature isn't tested enough. If this is the case, probably you have to upgrade the launcher when the files are up there. Most possible trouble comes from the code instead of the files. We know the assets are mostly coming from some NUS files.
    - If you can downgrade without GW Red card, it'll be very easy for other flashcarts to make use of this to revive their carts. If this is the case, you have to upgrade the launcher when the feature is enabled.

    However, I believe Gateway has already done this feature inside their lab. Just some polish work or protections left.
