Gateway-3ds.com released its GW3DS card into market on Aug 8th, 2013, and distributors now get them in stock.
Although this GW3DS can now only be used for 3DS / 3DSXL / 3DSLL with system versions from 4.1 to 4.5, its recent feature - Region Free enable you to play more free 3DS ROMs.
There is Region Lock for 3DS cartridges, namely Japanese 3DS games can only be runned on 3DS LL, American version games for 3DS US and European games for 3DS EU.
Now this Gateway 3DS V1.1A firmware gets GW3DS to play 3DS ROMs region unlocked - Region Free.
Then why is firmware spoofing mentioned ?
Since announcement of GW3DS flash kit, some 3DS games force 3DS to update into 5.1 and higher system, which will block Gateway-3ds exploit. And this firmware spoofing will allow gamers to play those games without the need for updating.
If my 3DS / 3DS XL are in lower system version, how to update into 4.X system ?
Users should not update console via Wifi download and upgrade directly, or your console will be updated into currently 6.2.0-12 system, which will definitely block your GW3DS flash kit. Here you can use a 3DS cartridge released after Mar, 2013 to urge that system update.
Which 3DS games can surely urge 4.x system update ?
