    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! :)

      I didn't know I could go online without being on the latest firmware. I can use 11.2 forever in that case. All the reason I wanted to update is some online Pokemon Battles and Pokebank. I want to ask you something else too if I'm not bothering.

      I might still permanently switch the Luma if I can sell my gateway card since I've bought a huge SD card for CIA games anyway. What's the best method to backup everything on the 3DS so if I screw up I can just go back to the state it's in right now. Is it enough to get a complete SD card flash with a software?

      Maybe they are waiting to release on Memorial Day so that way we will all remember the death of Gateway?

      Maybe they are waiting for May 30th, 2017, as the original announcement was on May 30th, 2013:

      http://www.maxconsole.com/threads/announcing-the-gateway-3ds-your-gateway-to-games.22486/

      So this big major update that changes the whole system over to new design and still working on the original cartridges produced 4 years ago would be major milestone in support, most other 3DS Flashcart makers either released a new version you had to buy again or totally stopped support and not caring about their customers, GW might be slow and maybe not first sometimes, but they do honor their promises in the end, even if they not good at keeping timetables, the rest does follow come thru in the end finally. :)

      Why A cart redesign no reason to at all! The native firm change and what else? I agree the support is/was good but a new card is a rip off scam. And no update while the alternative had a update within hours and moved on to a whole new better exploit in the time gateway manages to MAYBE conjure up a fix but also push a new card for sales reasons only

      All the cards will work someone already reversed engineered this cart and all you need is the home menu offset and the sd reading stuff it's on github.

      Either Gateway embraces the cfw or die from any new sales. It only good a secondary sd card/ quicker to swap games. Dont embrace that easily for Cfw gateway buyers then shove off with your money wanting scam

      @Ccito3ds - There is no new design. -- Maybe I was not clear but its new design (software wise) in how it operates, and still fully functional on the original 4 year old GW hardware, that is the type of support you don't get from other companies, even Sky3DS have not come up with anything new since their last announcement back in April that they are working on it, their solution normally ends with a whole new cartridge to buy instead! :)

      And its not a money wanting scam, 99% of those downloading a new update are using it on existing cartridges, very few new buyers appear each time there is a GW update, its all about support, not about new sales, sure there is new sales, but the percentage of new sales compared to existing customers over the last 4 years is so small, its really does not matter in the long run, its all about support, and GW will continue doing the best it can until Nintendo themselves decides the 3DS is no longer worth supporting! :)

      They posted that within a couple of hours after I checked their new domain website for updates a few minutes before making my post here.

      But seen in general for Sky3DS you will need to buy another product the DOCK to be sure you safe online, to get the keys and headers.

      There is better solutions coming that will not need people to buy 'extra equipment' to get around the now ongoing massive big 'N' banwave.

      @GaryOPA can you please find out what happens with users that have moved to CFW.
      Will the gateway cart still work once the update is released?

      Easy =/= time consuming, never mentioned it was difficult or not easy. It's simply a drag when I already used money for gateway

      Same conversation every damn time. a9lh was, in my opinon the first thing that GW didn't do first in the community. Sure there were some other features but when GW did implement them, GW did a better job. Hell yes GW takes waaay too long to push out new features. They always have. Same conversations, same people that will be back to laud praises and complain that it's GW fault that the new features are too awesome for them.

      Same shill advertisers scrambling for thread space for unrelated junk.

      Updated emunand to 11.4 without knowing there was no suport for it yet.

      Thinking of switching to CFW, but I need to export my Fire Emblem Echoes savefile, which I can't do.

      There is a part of CFW tutorial that replaces your sysNand with your EmuNand so you won't lose any files or saves. I haven't followed it yet but it should work in your case. Of course this'll only work on CIA game saves since you won't be able to use red card games.

      The sky dock is COMPLETELY USELESS. It does absolutely nothing that can't already be done with a GW, 3DS, and a PC.

      Except a sky cart you can use on 11.4 and play online. Something Gateway hasn't updated in forever now. Why fix what isn't broken

      All they need to do is update the native firm and patch the home menu offset to have to game menu show up. Instead they seem to be busy pushing another new cart for absolutely no reason and still haven't updated the simple fixes that are stopping it working on updated emunands.
