    Gateway's team has just released a new update as they continue to improve their support!

    In order to fix the issues in emunand support that arose with the new firmware 10.1 by Nintendo, Gateway releases this quick update that brings back all the functionalities that existed before.

    [​IMG]

    Please remember that this new update by Gateway only concerns the problems that happened in EMUNAND after updating it to the latest firmware (10.1). This way, the problem of broken region free functionality and multirom menu are overcome.

    Of course this is only relevant for O3DS users which are the only ones that can use emunand with the latest firmware. N3DS users remain with a max limit of firmware 9.5 in emunand. So all you N3DS users, don't try to update.

    It also seems that the cheat engine that Gateway is trying to implement is still not ready and it is facing difficulties. Hopefully they'll be able to finish it eventually. In the meantime, here are the mirrors from where you can get the new Gateway update.

    Remember always check to make sure the MD5 matches the above after copying the new update to your SD Card before launching the new Gateway version on your Nintendo 3DS. Doing this 1 minute check can save you alot of time and trouble. :)

    Important reminder: If you're unsure if Gateway will work in your console, always check HERE first.

    Gateway only works on console with firmware 9.2 and below. This update only brings support for 10.1 EmuNand. Only way to get you console to work with gateway now is with a hard mod and a firmware back up of less than 9.3.

    By updating your firmware you patched the exploit gateway needed to run.
    There is currently no way to downgrade.

    If you want to continue using gateway you'll need to purchase a new in box 3ds with firmware 9.2 or lower.

    You can downgrade but you need a hard mod and a nand backup of 9.2 or below.

    Exactly. Although to be exact, it's a restore process, not a downgrade process. The NAND is restored with the backup. ;)

    I am presently setting/installing everything with my new N3DS, was scratching my head as to why "Boot Gateway Mode" was freezing after I updated my EMUNAND.

    Thanks for the heads up. THANKS to GW team for the updates, programming support.


    Im currently on SYSNAND 9.0.0.20U. So I am unable to play some of the latest 3DS game ROM backups as it is now.

    Does anyone have any idea when support would be added for N3DS users for EMUNAND 10.1 and any future updates???

    Also is there a list of ROM backups that I would be unable to play because of the inability to update the EMUNAND past 9.0.0.2U?

    Thanks again.

    NB: Also is there any way I can update my EMUNAND to 9.5?

    Yes, you can find the firmware files for 9.5 in CIA format in that "ISO" website for "3DS". After, you just need to use any CIA installer (BigBlueMenu, FBI, etc) to install them to emunand.
    Don't forget to make a backup of emunand using emunandtool, just as safe precaution.

    As for emunand support above 9.5 for N3DS, that depends on the new encryption implemented by Nintendo during firmware 9.6 being broken. It's not just GW that has this issue but all CFW as well. So it might still take a while.

    And as for game support, I believe every game works right now even if you use emunand on 9.5.
    If you need to access eShop, you can also use an app called FreeMultiPatcher which spoofs the firmware and it will allow you to enter eShop (and doing some other stuff) even if you don't have the latest firmware in emunand or sysnand.

    3.4.1! Fast and on point! Big thanks to the fine folks at Gateway for staying legit. I bought my cards prior to its release and have never
    regret my purchase even for a second. Thanks again!

    Nothing negative said. 1 update a month seems to be the trend.

    Depends on your model of console. You find some guides and layouts at GBATemp. You'll also need some soldering knowledge.
    If you need help, you should ask either gamesquest1 or hundshamer there at GBATemp. They have plenty of experience and can give you some tips. Or if you can't do it yourself and don't mind paying someone else to do it for you, you can also ask someone there to do it.

    Does this version of gateway work with nintendo 2ds without errors when trying to load roms? I've heard people having problems and having to restart constantly.

    You'll have to try. As far as I know, they never released anything stating any specific fixes for 2DS.
    And since I don't own one, I can't test it either.

    In what way?
    The most obvious differences are the emunand support since O3DS can go up to the latest (10.1) and N3DS can only go up to 9.5
    Other than that, it's almost all the same, with the N3DS having the advantage power-wise which greatly benefits homebrew such as emulators.
