Shortly after their Christmas release of Gateway Ultra 3.6.0 Public Beta the Gateway Team now released ver 3.6.1 Public Beta with some really nice things added as promised. First of all, Gateway now has an official GW.3DSX Homebrew loader file so you can finally use Gateway with ThemeHax and CTR boot manager or load it through Ninjhax. Remember it still only works up to FW 9.2., but here’s another good announcmént from the Gateway Team. They’re working on an exploit that works up to FW 10.3 (the latest Firmware atm) so DON’T update if you want to be able to use your Gateway card in the Future but accidently updated your 3DS or you’re planning on switching to a New3DS and can’t find one on FW 9.2 and below. The release also featured some bug fixes. Here is the full post provided from the Gateway Team:
Today we are back with more presents for all! Let’s list a quick summary:
* Introducing the Gateway 3DSX homebrew application!
* Gateway ULTRA 3.6.1 Bugfix Release
– Menu button speed more fine tuned now
– Enabled in-game menu for demo and system applications (such as Mii Plaza)
– Expanded ram dumper / cheats region to 0x3FFFFFFF
– Fixed forced sysnand booting bug (previously defaulted always to emunand)
– Changed menu highlight color to red
We heard your feedback! And today we have already fixed just a few of those things already with Gateway ULTRA 3.6.1.
And that’s not all, we also created GW.3DSX: a nifty little homebrew application that is loaded through the 3DS Homebrew Channel (http://smealum.github.io/3ds/) and provides another way of booting into Gateway mode.
This means you can now choose your favorite entrypoint that works with the Homebrew Channel, such as the popular cold boot menuhax, and boot straight into the Gateway menu!
Note that this currently only works for systems up to sysnand firmware version 9.2, but we are working on that!
That’s right! We can already reveal another surprise that is coming SOON: We will be bringing Gateway support to systems that are on the current LATEST FIRMWARE: 10.3 and lower.
So do not update past this version, because we will not be able to bring support for versions after that any time soon!
Happy Holidays to all, and many thanks to the homebrew dev team and community!
That’s it for now, and as always, Enjoy!
I’m rather exited about the Firmware 10.3 exploit and that I can finally use Gateway with ThemeHax and do a coldboot 😀
