SUPPORT FOR FIRMWARE 9.0 – 9.2 COMING

We recently reached a major milestone and now we are happy to announce that we are in the process of finalizing our support for 3DS systems running System Firmware 9.0.0-20 / 9.1.0-20J / 9.2.0-20 natively!
Yes, this includes 2DS and New 3DS!

Yes, you heard us right! If you have a 3DS, or a 2DS or a New 3DS system that is running System Firmware 9.0.0-20, 9.1.0-20J or 9.2.0-20 then you WILL be able to use it with Gateway 3DS!

We recommend the following to our interested users:
– If you are on native System Firmare 4.5, then please stay at this version.
– If you are on 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.

But we also need help from YOU our loyal users!
We need you to get the word out to your community, friends and family that they must not update their 3DS beyond the version we recommended above!
We cannot guarantee that our solution will keep working with future updates above 9.2.0-20!

GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.6

Here we are today with another quick update!
While we are still working on the savegame features we promised, at the same time we also have other features in the works.
One of these other features was just finished and we were so excited that we could not wait any longer to share it with our users!
 
So what’s the new feature? Support for DevMenu and many other debug System Applications!
 
With DevMenu you can now install CIA archives straight into the SD card and launch games from there.
You can even take out the Gateway red card after booting into Gateway mode and still play the game from SD!
Note: we only recommend installing CIA to SD with emunand enabled.
 
Also, this means homebrew applications now have access to many more services!
 
As always, ENJOY !

GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.5

Yesterday a new 3DS system update was released which broke some emunand functionality.
But do not worry as we already have a new version ready for you guys!
This is another quick emunand firmware update before we bring out the real big guns!

Our latest firmware brings back full emunand support to 9.2.0-20:

* firmware spoofing
* multirom menu
* region free

We’ve gotten lots of inquiries about the New 3DS. There’s little we can officially disclose at this moment but we can safely assure you we have some tricks up our sleeves.

Also did you know: with Gateway 3DS, you can fit over 10 times 10 games on a single 128GB microSD and conveniently select them from a fancy multirom menu!

SYSTEM UPDATE 9.0.0-20

News just reached us about System Firmware 9.0.0-20 being released, and some users have already notified us that 9.0.0-20 emunand is not booting.

We have analysed this update for a bit and we can reassure our users that we expect to have a new Launcher update ready shortly.
Our originally planned Launcher for the next release will be put on hold until we have emunand support again.

Until next time, ENJOY!

SMASH BROTHERS, ANOTHER GATEWAY EXCLUSIVE !

One of the much-anticipated 3DS games of the year has been recently released to our friends in Japan and we at Gateway want to share the experience with
our friends all over the globe!

Watch the Gateway exclusive video below. (NOTE: We are using Gateway OMEGA 2.3b Launcher.dat with emunand 8.1, and a SD card larger than 2GB)

and as always,

Enjoy !

GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.3b

Early this week we released our latest Gateway OMEGA 2.3b firmware to our beta testers.
We have received a lot of positive feedback from our beta testers and we would like to thank them for taking the time to test the latest update.

Our beta testers have mentioned a few minor issues:
*  The Gameboy Advance virtual console games and DSiWare are not working yet.
We acknowledge this and we will try to get it working after the next firmware release.

*  Emunand 8.x boots up slower.
We have observed this too for some brands of SD cards. We suggest our users to try a different brand or a faster SD card.

Other than that no major issues have been observed so far, so we decided it’s time for a public release!

You can find the latest firmware Gateway OMEGA 2.3b in the Downloads section.

As always, ENJOY!

PRIVATE BETA 2.3b

Today we are very proud to present Gateway firmware OMEGA 2.3b BETA to our beta testers!

For this update we focused on bringing support back for recent games and applications that use the new encryption method that was introduced in System Firmware 7.x and higher.
It took us a while before it was ready, but here we are today. We always deliver as promised!

With this update we are happy to announce that this brings our game compatibility back to 100% and we want to keep it that way!

But we also want to make a few observations:
* We have noticed that some recent games have started to use features only present on System Firmware 7.x or higher.
Firmware spoofing no longer works for these games, and emunand is currently required for these games to run.

* Classic mode will only boot emunand 8.x or higher if you have a genuine Gateway card inserted. You can still continue without, but
support for emunand 8.x or higher will not work.

We are still investigating if we can improve upon these limitations, but we currently think that this is an acceptable solution for the time being.
That and we also have a lot more interesting features planned that we want to release!

Our next focus will be revising the savegames subsystem. We think a lot of our savegame editing and retail gamecard users will be pleased with what we have planned!

Once approved by our beta testing friends, the final release will be published. If all goes well, this means very soon.

Until next time, ENJOY and as always support the innovators and not the imitators!

RELEASE COMING SOON

We finally did it! We are the first and only team to add support for the latest games and applications that make use of the new 7.x and 8.x encryption.

We are currently in the process of wrapping it up in a nice Launcher file and we will be releasing it in the coming weeks.

 

As always, here is a little teaser video to show the new feature in action…

Latest system update 8.x

You may have noticed that system firmware 8.0.0 has recently been released.

We have analysed this update and we want to advise our users the following:

 

– Currently do not update emunand to this version as it will not boot. Old emunand versions (7.x or lower) will keep booting fine.

– If you did update emunand, do not worry. Our next firmware update will bring your updated emunand back to life.

– This update uses the same encryption as 7.x, only applied to more system processes which prevents emunand booting.

– We are still on track on getting our next firmware out, this update does not change much in our game plan.

 

Thank you for your patience once again and as always ENJOY.
