Gateway Ultra v3.7.1 supports OLD/NEW3DS emunand 10.4


With fast support for nintendo, Gateway 3ds team made a new update for old 3ds and new 3ds emunand-Gateway Ultra v3.7.1. This new firmware update can support the Old 3DS/New 3DS emunand 10.4. It also fixed in-game menu issuce in certain games such as Centipede. Users can back up and restore CIA games and the save data.

Meanwhile, gateway team advice users not to update their 3DS real system above 10.3 becuase they will not able to support 3DS 10.4 soon. So if you have a gateway 3ds flashcard, please be careful and do not update your 3DS higher than 10.3.

Posted on January 19, 2016
We are back again with another quick update! Here’s what’s new:

* Latest emunand support (10.4) for both o3ds and n3ds
* In-game menu fixed for certain games (Centipede)
* SAV backup and restore added again for CIA games and SaveDataFiler
* L button hex and decimal switch too fast fixed in exact cheat search

With the new firmware update we would like to STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST UPDATING your sysnand to any version higher than 10.3 (i.e. 10.4 or higher), as we will not be able to support sysnand firmware version 10.4 or higher anytime soon.

Currently there exist homebrew methods to downgrade from 10.3 to 9.2, allowing you to use your Gateway card already.
But the downgrade method is not recommended as it is error prone, dangerous and can lead to bricking.
We would like to provide our users with a more safe method, and this is one of the things we are working on.

This means you SHOULD NOT upgrade past 10.3, as you will miss the boat as they say.

That’s it for now, and as always, ENJOY!

XX for Red, YY for Green and ZZ for Blue
00 for Disabled, FF for Enabled.

For instance, FF00FF which means you enable red and blue. So the led light will shine pink(a mixture of red and blue). FFFFFF will make it shine White( a mixture of red, green and blue). FFFF00 will make it shine Orange(a mixture of red and green)
