Only 3 days later, gateway 3ds team released another new GW 3.2.1 ultra firmware.
With the new firmware, it added blue card GW-installer.nds with new 3ds support,
it is more easier to use the gateway 3ds card now.

And we’re back with another quick update!

So what’s new this time:
– Updated Blue Card GW_INSTALLER.nds with New 3DS support
– Added option to boot into SYSNAND mode directly even with EMUNAND on SD card
We received plenty of feedback regarding our previous firmware release and we heard you!

In our last release we realised there was no easy way to boot into SYSNAND mode, so we got you covered now!
From now on, while in the Gateway menu with the boot icons visible, simply hold B while booting into Gateway mode or Classic mode!
You will then be asked to confirm booting into SYSNAND mode by pressing X.

We also added the New 3DS support to the Blue Card GW_INSTALLER.nds, so you have another alternative to reinstalling NVRAM other than from our Gateway menu.


About one more month quiet, gateway 3ds team released latest new firmware just now!
Please check the news from gateway 3ds official support site:
Today we are back with another update: GATEWAY 3.2 ULTRA!

So let’s see what’s new:
– Latest EMUNAND support for old 3DS (currently version 9.7)
– New 3DS 8.1 JAPAN region now fully supported (multirom menu and so on)
– System Settings 4.5 support for New 3DS!
– Built-in NVRAM installer in the Gateway menu (behaves same as the Blue Card Gateway installer)

From now on, New 3DS users can rejoice that they no longer need to constantly use Cubic Ninja or Zelda Ocarina of Time to boot up into Gateway mode!
With this firmware update, you will be able to boot into Gateway mode using just System Settings, just like on old 3DS! No more extra accessories required once you have done the setup!

Just follow these simple steps:
1) Copy the Gateway 3DS 3.2.0 ULTRA Launcher.dat to your New 3DS microSD card
2) Copy mset_.cia to your New 3DS microSD card (where is your console region)
3) Copy “DevMenu.3ds” to your Gateway 3DS microSD card.
4) Boot into the Gateway menu with your preferred entrypoint (Zelda or Cubic Ninja)
5) Select the new “NVRAM INSTALL” option from the menu, proceed with installation.
6) Once installed, boot into Gateway mode and launch DevMenu.3ds from the multirom menu (press SELECT)
7) Start DevMenu and import mset_.cia from your SD card.
8) Reboot console and verify you can now boot into Gateway mode with the classic System Settings DS Profile method. (Settings -> Profile -> Nintendo DS profile)
9) Enjoy! No more cartridge swapping required to use Gateway 3DS on New 3DS! :-)

Please make sure to install the *CORRECT* mset cia for your region, we do not recommend this for new users with little experience !!

Please be aware that this downgrades the System Settings application on your SYSNAND, so be wise and
backup your SYSNAND (and setup EMUNAND) using the Gateway menu before you do this.
Note you can always manually install a newer CIA version back of System Settings, but using our Sysnand Restore option is the recommended option.

New 3DS users might also wonder why there is no EMUNAND update yet, and the answer is simply that while we are still making steady progress on this front, there is still alot of work to be done until we get to this point. So we hope our New 3DS users will understand that we cannot give an exact end date for this yet.
Rest assured we will be able to overcome this obstacle!

Gateway 3DS Ultra V3.1.0 support 3DS&N3DS V4.1-V9.2x firmware

Just new the news from Gateway 3DS official support site, gateway team public released ultra V3.1.0 beta to add support new 3DS V9.2 firmware support.
In the before gateway ultra firmware can only support V4.1-V9.2.x 3DS(XL/LL) , can’t support new 3DS.
with the new ultra V3.1.0 firmware, now you can use gateway 3ds card to play 3ds roms on your 3DS (XL/LL) and new 3DS(XL/LL) for free, without game limit, just drop and play, easier to select roms from game menu …

for the following is the  gateway 3ds newest function list:
Every feature of the GATEWAY experience on the original 3DS is supported on New 3DS, such as but not limited to:
– 100% game compatibility
– Multirom menu
– Gateway and Classic mode
– Emunand !
– Eshop application support AND Eshop ROMs support
– Homebrew support
– Savegame backup and restore
– Gamecard dumping
– System nand dumping
– EXFAT and FAT32 support
– Diagnostics
– And many more features

We have spent months trying to find an alternative method that did not require you to have anything extra for New 3DS similar to our original 3DS solution, but we now realise that we should just have released what we have and improve it iteratively!
And that’s exactly what we are doing! We polished our current solution and made it into something we would feel comfortable with to release as a beta.
Keep in mind that finding a more convenient solution for our New 3DS users will remain a priority task to us.
We decided to release this as a public beta, so if you find any serious issues, please let us know.
Our current New 3DS solution is still a work in progress but it is a fully WORKING solution and that’s all that matters currently.

Currently we know there are a few minor issues in our release but we feel these are not serious show stopper bugs to put this beta release on hold.
One example is the paused head tracking and the 3D slider switching incorrectly between 2D and 3D when in Gateway or Classic mode.
But rest assured, we are working on fixing these bugs!


– A save dongle OR a friend with a original 3DS that can launch our Gateway menu
– A genuine physical gamecard copy of “The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D”
– Gateway 3.1.0 ULTRA Launcher.dat file

1. Drag and drop the Gateway 3.1.0 ULTRA Launcher.dat file to your New 3DS’s internal microSD card, behind the back plate.
2. Locate the savegame for “The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D” for your region in the Gateway 3.1.0 ULTRA release.
3. Restore the savegame to the game: you can either use a generic savegame dongle OR use our Gateway menu’s Restore savegame option with a original 3DS from a friend.
4. Boot up the New 3DS and launch the Zelda game.
5. Select the GATEWAY savegame and Link will be standing inside a tree hut.
6. Simply press A to load the Gateway menu.
You will be greeted with the Gateway menu, and from there you can insert the Gateway card and boot into Gateway mode.
NOTE: We are also working on using Cubic Ninja as a means to load our Gateway menu, please stay tuned for more information soon!
Support the innovators not the imitators, and as always ENJOY!

Recently, Nintendo update 3DS firmware frequent, from V9.2.x to V9.3.x ,then to V9.4.x .
Gateway team isn’t free too, they are working hard on V9.0-V9.2 firmware, and just now, release the OMEGA 2.7 firmware.

We also want to inform our users that we are still working on native support for sysnand 9.0 – 9.2, so please be patient until we are ready to release!
We try to deliver a smooth experience for our users and this takes time to perfect!

We also inform our users that they MUST NOT UPDATE SYSNAND TO 9.3 OR ABOVE, because we will not be able to support entry to those sysnand versions any time soon.

If you are wondering what native support we will bring for lower than sysnand 9.0, we can tell that after 9.0-9.2 we will start with 8.0-8.1 and gradually work our way down with support for even lower sysnand firmware versions.

Gateway 3DS website Updating, New Kernel will Release soon?

Gateway team work hard on V9.2.x 3ds firmware all the time, from the former news,
they will release new firmware very soon.
Now , only several days before xmas, will they give us a Xmas surprise?
I think they will do!

Currently, gateway 3ds official site is still under maintenance,

but please attention: they changed the top banner, it is a banner different with the OMEGA.

gateway_3DS_OMG_old new_gateway_3ds

So,  will they remove OMEGA firmware? and use a new firmware and support V9.2.x directly?

If  all is same as we guess, Gateway 3ds new firmware will release in 2 Days i think!

New SKY3DS with Blue Button Removed 10 Games Limit

As we known that Gateway 3DS will release new firmware to supports V9.x 3DS firmware with unlimited 3DS roms.

But the new competitor SKY3DS released a new card with blue button which can also play unlimited 3ds roms.

Now, compare Gateway 3DS and SKY3DS again:

Gateway 3DS has 2 cards, can play NDS and 3DS roms, has visual menu to select games, region free, put roms to memory card directly,
don’t need game title…
So, if gateway 3DS new firmware released, i think gateway 3ds is much easier to operate than SKY3DS.

By the way , the 3ds firmware V9.3.0 released, from gateway team news, gateway new firmware still can’t support V9.3.x,
and don’t recommend customers update to V9.3.x.

So, Gateway Team still have much heavy work, just wish you can release new firmware as soon as possible.
