Works on consoles 4.1 to 9.2 firmware only, firmwares above 9.2 and below 10.7 can be downgraded to 9.2.   We will not give refunds to customers that buy the device and have a firmware higher than 9.2 firmware. The gateway website  updates firmware all the time to say things like 'works on the latest firmware with EMUNAND'. Emunand is a feature of the device which bassically allows you to pretend to be on the latest firmware for consoles on 4.1 to 9.2. It does NOT mean you can use it on a consnole with a higher firmware than 9.2

Now with the amazing Ultra 3.2 Firmware!


WHY BUY FROM Modchips Direct

  • 6 month warranty for US customers, not 7 days like others offer!
  • 100% legit stock, straight from the people who make them! We are official trust resellers - beware of clones!


The Gateway 3DS is the worlds first REAL 3DS flash card. All other cards like the Supercard, R4i etc run on the 3DS but they run in backwards compatibility mode. The Gateway 3DS is the only flash card to actually run in 3DS mode. Real 3DS Code, opening up a world of posibilities to developers and enthusiasts that want to tinker with their console. 

The Gateway does not allow DS homebrew/code to work, nor DSi code, JUST 3DS CODE.  (Actually you do get a normal DS flash card for free as part of the deal, the 'blue card' you can run DS code off this if you have a console between 4.1 to 4.5 firmware)


  • Development 1: The team have region free working, load content from any region!
  • Development 2: The team have NAND backup working, which means you can backup and restore your NAND through homebrew
  • Development 3: The team have NAND emulation working, which means you can update your 'emulated' NAND to the latest firmware version and use your console online (this feature can be blocked by Nintendo with updates please be careful) This does NOT mean you can use gateway on any firmware, it still only works on a 3DS console that has a firmware on 4.1 to 4.5
  • Development 4: Omega firmware allows so many things including MultiROM support, ROM dumping, Cia files etc etc, Amazing!
  • Development 5: Gateway now works on 4.1 to 9.2 consoles!!!
  • Development 6: Gateway now work on the NEW 3ds consoles up to 9.2 with a little help when you load a Zelda Hack or Cubic Ninja hack. Or you can use the sky3DS. Please read the manual before buying.


Package comes with

  • 1 x GateWay 3DS White card with red sticker
  • 1 x GateWay 3DS Grey card with blue Sticker (to launch into gateway mode on 4.1 to 4.5 consoles - not needed for other consoles)
  • Does not come with paper box. Just the cards.


Works with:

  • 3DS
  • 3DS XL (know as 3DS LL in Japan)
  • 2DS
  • NEW 3ds and NEW 3DS XL (The entry point is the Zelda Ocarina of Time hack, Meaning you need that game (original cart) + an R4i Save dongle OR, a Sky3DS  to get into the hack.  Hopefully more options for this console coming soon

The Gateway 3DS is currently designed to work with from 4.1 to  9.2 firmware on the 3DS, 2DS and 3DS XL. The letter at the end is just the region (u, e, a, j, etc). This is not an official product, and it might not be possible for the Gateway team to overcome higher firmware versions then the one listed here. We do not sell the device claiming that it will work with any firmware not listed above and any future firmwares to come out (even if the team say they are working on it, does not mean that it is possible so do NOT order based on promises on another website. ) We do not offer refunds if you have an incompatible firmware version.
