Gateway SUPPORT FOR FIRMWARE 9.0 – 9.2 natively COMING

20 Nov

As for the amazing SKY3DS  hits the market, breaking the all 3ds console for playing any 3ds games. Gateway 3DS  fight back with supporting  firmware 9.0-9.2 natively soon.

It is really a milestone that gateway break 3ds ver 4.5 limit and allowing native system 5.0 user to enjoy 3ds games soon. Of course gateway 3ds will support 2ds and new 3ds console. That reminds us of the amazing SKY3DS flashcard.

But the approach of gateway seems a little different. Gateway lets us native System Firmware 5.0 or higher, then please update to 9.0.0-20, 9.1.0-20J or 9.2.0-20 and stay on this version. Do not update beyond this version. then coming firmware GW 2.7 or 2.7b break that 3ds version to make it possible that we can play 3ds games.

More newest information you can kindly view here:
GW_Release 1.2: Support for iQue (China) and HK (Taiwan) region consoles has finally arrived !
The latest Blue card GW_Installer.nds will now prompt the user to select the correct region.
Consoles from the above regions will need to run the latest GW_Installer.nds.
Hardware Diagnostics and SPI reset:
Due to numerous issues primarily related to third party hardware, as of GW release 1.2 and onwards we have embedded a hardware diagnostics and verification routine into the Gateway Launcher.
This diagnostics mode is designed to:
1) Reset the GW onboard SPI FLASH. Should fix some “The game card has been removed” errors.
2) Sequentially test and verify the FPGA, SPI FLASH, and MicroSD functionality.
3) Stability verification of MicroSD cards. (Inserted into Red GW card)
For this reason we have provided a 1GB test file that should be written to the MicroSD card.
If this file is detected during the diagnostics test, the GW LED will flash a hue from blue to red depending on the detected read speed (Blue for fast and progressively changing towards Red for slow). The complete 1GB file will take up to 5 minutes to be verified, at which point the LED will turn constant green.
To enter into diagnostics mode, make sure you have the latest GW release build copied to your 3DS sd card. Hold down the “L” button while triggering the “Nintendo DS Profile” entry point. The 3ds will show black/gray screens with wifi / date and battery indicators on the top screen. Insert red GW card and press “L” to start the test.
Hardware Diagnostics sequence and LED colour meaning
Test 1. FPGA RED
Test 2. SPI write test YELLOW
Test 3. SPI read test TEAL
Test 4: SD
Blue = No valid SD data
White = Fat32 partition detected
Green = 3ds ROM header found (if you are still experiencing problems please download and write our GW_testrom to your micro SD, for a full read test)
When GW_testrom is detected on the micro SD, LED will flash hue from blue to red depending on the detected read speed, at the end of a full 1G successful read of the test file the LED should turn to constant Green.
If any test fails the diagnostics will halt on that test. (So if you start diagnostics and only see a constant RED, this means the FPGA is faulty and you should contact your reseller for a replacement. Constant RED,YELLOW or TEAL is idicative of a non user repairable fault)
Please note “The game card has been removed” error is most likely caused by rom data corruption, the diagnostics tools provided here were designed to offer the end user a way to verify his/her hardware setup, primarily rom writing, please ensure a full read test is performed using the GW_testrom file prior to contacting your reseller.
