I’m thinking of offering a Gateway 3DS loader cartridge to my nephew, his parents are broke (lost jobs, life can suck) and the kid’s sad without new games for his 3DS XL in a long time. With a Gateway 3DS, the kid could play whatever game he likes, provided his parent download for him ROMs over the internet (and any torrent site has those ROMs.)
My own kids have a 3DS XL with a DStwo cartrige, it is capable of playing the ROMs of DS games, but not of 3DS games. It works well.
I imagined the the Gateway 3DS, made to allow playing 3DS ROMs, would be equally simple, but just in case, you know, I searched a bit on how to setup the thingy, after all, if I am to offer it, I know I’ll be also the one who’ll have to install it on the console.
Tutorials were read. Youtube videos were watched.
Jebus, what the hell ?!?
Two cartridges, blue, red, copy files, here, copy files there, move folders, but not those ones, watch out for which firmware you got, sometimes in some videos there’s the console’s web browser and the need to activate a wifi connexion…
I am TOTALLY lost O_o
Say, please, if this is not asking too much, would you know of a Gateway 3DS installation guide made for TOTAL MORONS as far as 3DS hacking is concerned ? The console is running a 4.4 firmware, a useful precision.
(Or, possibly, could you write it in the comments ? ^^)
The best I found was this French tutorial (I’d have been totally cool with an English tuto, mind you), but even then, that was too complex for me T__T
Thank you VERY MUCH if you can help a poor newb not screw up his christmas presents ^^
— UPDATE: I was recommended Sky3DS instead, if that REALLY is more simple and works without complications, then I’d indeed rather go for that other one… Somebody to confirm it really is super duper simple, you plug the cartrige in the console, you plug its microsd chip into the PC to copy roms onto it, you take out the microsd from the PC and plug it into the Sky3DS cartrige, and voilà, we’re good, it’s ready to play ?
