    13/02 – 11.3 Emunand

    It's been just over a week since Nintendo sadly updated their Nintendo 3DS firmware to v11.3, but now Gateway 3DS developers have released an 'status update' on their progress towards a big new update for their flashcarts with lots of amazing new features!

    People were worried Gateway 3DS had not updated their website, but no longer, and in their 'status update', they have stated that alot more goodies are in store, so the wait will be well worth it, all tho sadly it might still be a few more weeks away, but its coming SOON!
    Good things come to those that wait! :)

      Ah.... a little wrong there @urherenow.

      They said emunand compatibility will be a week after the release. Not a new firmware compatibility. However I do agree with you. If they have cracked 11.5 firmware compatibility it will most likely be released with 11.5 emunand compatibility.

      @LeoMane dont get your hopes up, the only 11.5 compatability when can count on is 11.5 emunand. Not sysnand. And it will be after the new release

      At this point any release would be a bonus. With all the initial speculation around the original Feb 13th post, this release needs to be a major advancement or they should pack up shop and call an end to development. The best hope for the community at this point is source code release.

      uhhh.... what? Go home, you're drunk. By new firmware, I'm talking about 11.5 (and 11.4 and 11.3). I am not only right, but you just repeated what I said. Congrats.

      EDIT: and do I really need to specify emunand? GW has pretty much always used emunand by default since they invented emunand. Sysnand is a special case for people wanting to play GBA and DSiWare, mostly. We don't need GW for that.

      The fact that a date was put on it instead of "almost" or "soon" maybe?

      Nobody invite this guy to a party...

      I got hyped over on the GBATemp thread once when they first posted about A9LH implementation. 3 months or more later we got it. Great. But that wait really forced me to take a wait an see approach with GW from that point on. Notice I'm still waitin' and I ain't seein'

      As a SECONDARY exploit on a second EmuNAND running 9.2 to run all the homebrew games Rosalina breaks. Still the fastest way into the homebrew menu. It can be run from B9S you know. Just not using Luma 8.x. Works fine using Puma or Cakes on an O3DS. So far just works with Puma on N3DS. Not really tried it with Skeith yet though (I don't think I have, anyway).

      And it doesn't look like I'm going to get ctrHexenII, eDuke3D, Spectre3DS, or 3DSCraft to work with Rosalina like I did ctrQuake and ctrWolfen, so, a *hax is still needed. Space being no concern, a second EmuNAND on 9.2 with Menuhax installed is an excellent choice that boots the HB menu fast. It can also run Ninjhax 1.1b if I ever needed it for anything.

      I've even got it chaining into the original BootCTR (slightly modified to use a different configuration file than BootCTR9) so I can pick between Gridlauncher, the old 1.x menu, or the 2.x menu, lol.

      Yes you do need to specify emunand so some newbie doesnt go out and buy a gateway. Not that that normally stops them anyway. Or calls you a liar and debasses you in front of everyone

      It'll be fun for me with the NTRBOOTHAX and boot9strap update, if it actually comes with it. I've never updated from menuhax.

      Does it mean we may need to use the blue card to install ntrboothax and that we will not have to use emunand anymore ?

      That possible, my guess is that they'll make a revision of the blue card so new users will be able install directly Gateway.

      And for old users, since they can access to hax (you don't have a Gateway in 2017 without cfw installed right ?) they'll should be able to update blue card kernal from Gateway menu (if they can)
      Just a theory tho, that how I see it, but emunand side must be from teh CFW itself and not the entrypoint.

      Yeah, my countdown notice, seem to have caused the Normantt (magnethax) team to speed up their ntrboothax release, oh'well at least it help to get something out of private circles into the open for all to enjoy.

      Not sure if the blue card can be updated, as they never did to before to unblock it when nintendo stopped older ds flashcarts from working with their blacklist. -- Gateway's blue card is a cheap clone of an earlier AceKard one, and also based a bit on original DS flashcart that they used to sell before under another brand name long time ago, before reforming the team many years later to get into the 3DS market.

      Well I can tell you that the blue card isn't compatible with the NTRBOOTHAX installer.

      Well there's about 36 hours before the whole world has finished the 13th August. At least give his countdown chance to expire before asking for updates on it.

      sigh.. fair enough. But with ntrboot, it's super easy to hack an 11.5 system, create an older emunand with it (with the help of a couple of tools, but not that hard), and still use Gateway emunand via chainloading luma->bootctr9->GW. I, or probably a bunch of others, can write a tutorial to do that if needed.
