Gateway Nintendo 3DS Review

  • Unboxing Video
    There are two cartridges in the GW3DS box. The blue GATEWAY cartridges is essentialy a regular R4 3DS card running WOOD firmware, that can run all the NDS rom files on 3DS and DS consoles. It is used to execute a hack that need to run on 3DS in the DS MODE, but the cartridge can be later on used for playing any .nds rom file.

Gateway 3DS flash card R4


Official opening of pre-orders !

Gateway is please to announce start of manufacturing and the opening of pre-orders. We expect to roll out the first units to resellers within the next fortnight.

Please pay special attention to the following critical information regarding our current software development phase.

1) Yes, we are exploit based (Yay !?) and therefore very dependent on console firmware version: Our current plan is to release for firmware version 4.5 while continuing work on a solution for 6.x + after release. (please see note below)

2) Gateway will be shipped with 2 cards, the red Gateway shown in our video, which will handle 3ds backups, and a blue ds cart which will be used to prepare the console. ( more demo videos showing save game compatibility as well as setup procedures to follow soon )

3) Your console can be safely updated to 4.5 by using an original title released after March 2013 till current. Please double check the update message (version) before proceeding !


We currently have a very convenient and user friendly way to enter into our Gateway mode, while this entry point has been tested up to 6.0 we expect it to be shut off shortly after we release. We can not stress enough the importance of staying away from any further updates! ( 6.0 compatibility is only valid for our initial entry point, as stated in point (1) we currently only support firmware version 4.5 )


Compare Gateway 3DS to Sky3DS and R5 SDHC. Sky3DS card has better compatibility with consoles but does not have homebrew support and advanced interface options like Gateway 3DS...

3DS MultiCarts are super simple pre-flashed 10-in-1 multi game carts for all versions of 3DS, 2DS, and New3DS with full online and save game support.
