Gateway 3DS OMEGA 2.3 test:firmware Support Firmware 7.x or higher games,boot emunand 8.x and higher 100% game compatibility

The news from Gateway 3DS official site. The new beta 2.3b firmware is released. THis new updates supporrt 7.x fimrware and higher games. (PS: not works on 3DS 7.x system)  it’s main for some recent games have started to use features only present on System Firmware 7.x or higher.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.

Below is the full news of gateway 3DS:

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!

 

Gateway 3DS is the first and best 3DS flashcart in the market. If yours 3DS system is during the range 4.1~4.5, We highly recommend you buy the Gateway 3DS. Because you can play all the 3DS games on via this flashcart. It’s very very worth.

Test the new Gateway 3DS 2.3b firmware

First, as the website said,a red card is required for the GW mode,without that you will never get in that mode! –

image

Updating emunand to 8.1E…

image

BTW,CLASSIC MODE won’t work for 7.1 or higher emunand system,without a red card,you’ll have a black screen… Running a high version system rom:0999 – Youkai Watch 2 – Honke (Japan).It runs well.

Except the name, this two cards have many differents.

R4i Gold 3DS

this is the most famous r4 wood flashcart which have the wood kernel inside, so it support all the functions of wood kenel. If you are intrest in the Wood kernel. You should choose this product. We know that the R4i Gold 3DS. Not only support most of the DS games, you can use r4i Gold 3DS play many different homebrews.

R4i Gold Pro

R4i Gold Pro is a normal r4 flashcart. It have all the functions of R4i GOld 3DS. Compared to R4i Gold 3DS, R4i Gold Pro is a little slow in loading the kenel and games. But not too much, about 1-2 seconds. So if you don’t care about this you can use this flashcart to works on your 3DS/2DS/DSi/DS console. The latest version of R4i Gold Pro is the 2014 version. It’s on sale at 3ds-flashcard.com. So it’s worth to buy.

R4i Gold 3DS and R4i Gold Pro are both very good r4 flashcart. They come different company, so the UI and loading speed have a little different. The R4i Gold 3DS maybe well known by more users.

They are both ok to it’s price. So you can choose any of them.

What’s the different between r4i gold 3ds and r4i gold 3ds deluxe edition ?

The r4ids.cn has two main product. the R4i Gold 3DS  and the R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe edition . What’s the different between the two product. The only different is the Deluxe ? No, not that simple. I will show you the different between this two r4 gold product.

R4i GOld 3DS :

R4i Gold 3DS is a classical r4 flashcart. It’s the almost the only one which support the default wood kernel. This flashcart is a r4 flashcart, so it can’t play 3DS mode games. For example the Pokemon x&y or MH4. But you can play almost all the DS games. Pokemon white 2 for DS, Pokemon black 2 for DS and many other amazing DS games. The only disadvantage is that you can’t play 3DS roms which have the xxx.3ds format

The R4 gold 3DS works on all the 2DS/3DS/DS/DSi consoles. So the r4 card has the best compatibility. You don’t need to worry about the compatibility. That’s why so many people choose this product. Another one more main reason is the system limit. Because all the 3DS mode flashcarts only works on 3DS 4.1~4.5 firmware. So most of the console can’t use these cards.  include  the R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe Edition.

R4i GOld 3DS Deluxe Edition:

R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe Edition have all the function of R4i Gold 3DS, Enjoy DS games, listen music,read e-books and play homebrew apps. But this card is a 3DS mode flashcart. That’s mean you can play 3DS roms on 3DS(XL) console via this flashcart. What’s more it support mult-roms, so you can hold more than one games in the same micro sd card. It’s very useful. Emuland functions let you play 7.x system games on 3DS 4.1~4.5 firmware. That’s amazing !

R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe edition is a clone of Gateway 3DS, so it have most of the functions of Gateway 3DS. The price will be much cheaper than Gateway 3DS.

So the main different is that “supporting 3DS roms or not supporting” Another  thing you must make sure. Your 3DS(XL) or 2DS fimrware version number. If it’s not in the range of 4.1~4.5. You can’t use any 3DS mode flashcart. include the R4i Gold 3DS deluxe edition.

SO whichi one should to buy, I thinks you have the answer.
