GATEWAY 4.1 Firmware Fast-Boot Manual
To make sure the process to install Gateway Fast-Boot on your 3DS or N3DS is as clear and simple as possible, GW has released a new manual which you can find here.

Does Gateway 3DS 4.1B Beta support 3DS/2DS/N3DS 10.7 and 11.0 firmware or not ?
Did you notice the description on ? The Gateway official site writes in this way "Works on 2DS, 3DS & 3DS XL firmware up to 10.7". Don’t and never regard this as Gateway 3ds compatibility for 10.7 to lower 3ds firmware versions. The just means Gateway 3DS card can support EmuNAND 10.7 and 11.0 for now. If your 3DS/2DS/New 3DS console is on 9.3-11.O Sysnand, don’t buy Gateway 3DS card: it can’t play 3DS Games on your console! Below is the FAQ from official GW forum You can check the link here

Question: In the official Gateway 3DS site, it is specified that it “Works on 2DS, 3DS & 3DS XL firmware up to 10.7″.

Does that mean that if the 3DS is on official firmware up to 10.7, it’ll work?

I’ve heard a lot of different information (such as it’ll only work up to 9.2, compatibility to 10.3 in the works)...

Can someone please confirm the current official versions the gateway will work on?

Answer: It work on up to 10.7 emunand is what they mean. It actually works on 11.x emunand. It inly support 9.2 sysnand on any console. However if they got time machine working right you should be able to dowbgrade to 2.x to get whatever it is you need for the new gateway a9lh thing.

Conclusion: SKY3DS and SKY3DS+ are still the Only 2 flashcards supporting 3DS Game Roms on 3DS V11.0 to all lower 3DS system versions. Gateway 3DS is still just supporting within V4.1-V9.2 firmware range. Furthermore, SKY3DS/SKY3DS+ are much easier to use compared with Gateway 3ds card: just dowload, drag & plug, and then you can play Hundreds of Hot 3DS Games. It is your best choice in 2016, judging from the current 3DS hacking cards situation.
