Just found an amazing video, show the dstwo can work gateway 3ds firmware and play 3ds game! As i don’t have v4.5 console (it need flash on v4.5 first), cannot verify it, but the video seems true, if it is real, why not buy dstwo to play 3DS game? It is cheaper and support v6.2.0-x!
Here is the video:
According to the video, we know the dstwo use gateway 3ds blue card firmware first, work it on 3DS v4.5 and flash it. Then use the same dstwo, put dstwo firmware and a 3ds game in sd card, and the dstwo work on 3DS v6.1 console, play 3ds game successful!
We know dstwo is the stronggest flashcart in the market, but it still surprise me that it can work 3ds game. The dstwo has a very strong cpu, that make this card support many high technical performance such as play gba game without slot 1.
Well, anyway, this is a good news for players as dstwo is much cheaper than gateway 3ds, players has more choice and we believe more 3ds flashcart will come out soon!
The r4i gold 3ds (r4ids.cn) released the update patch first, after the 3DS update to 6.2 no more than half day, that is so quick, and no need cut the card, it just like the normal upadte method. So right now, r4i gold 3ds work on 3DS v6.2 perfectly. Have to say, r4i gold 3ds is the best r4 card in the market right now.
News from GBATemp, the Nintendo 3DS update firmware again, the newest firmware is v6.1.0-12(E/J) and 6.1.0-11U. Just r4i gold 3ds and dstwoconfirmed can work on newest firmware at the moment. Seems this update is not for banning flashcarts, just for adding some new features.
Changelog : Version 6.1.0-11U available via wireless Internet connection includes the following improvements:
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
So if your card support work on v6.0.0-x, it also can work on v6.1.0-x. Other flashcarts still has no news for updating.
The Nintendo 3DS update the firmware to v6.0.0-11u / v6.0.0-12J / v6.0.0-12E yesterday. And at same time, all the flashcarts are blocked by this updating.
We just wait for the patch, believe the flashcarts official will release update patch. And dstwo become the first one again. The dstwo released new firmware v1.20, and it support work on 3DS v6.0.0-11x. So you can use a ds console to update your dstwo or if your 3DS not update yet, just use the 3DS to update your dstwo.
But if your 3DS updated already, and you don’t have anyother console, how to update the card? Here is a method for users who just have a updated 3DS console:
– putting the new firmware on the sd
– Leave on error screen for 3-5 minutes.
– take sd out and delete firmware file
– try the ds2 in 3ds console.
When i tested this method, i wait over 10 minutes, so just wait a little longer, it will work.
News from GBATemp, actually, this time, it is still the gba update, not dstwo official update. DSTwo support many emulator and work fine, the gbatemp update the GBA emulator last time, and just dstwo support play gba games on 3ds and dsi. This time, the SNES emulator update again, and SNES is also many users concern function. Here is the details:
News from GBATemp, the gbatemp update their own dstwo GBA emulator v1.40 yesterday. Here is the details:
Based on beta 14, not beta 15.
Add the option to play games on the Lower Screen instead of the Upper Screen (GitHub issue #12).
Add the option to start games from the GBA BIOS (logo) (GitHub issue #9).
Make the FPS counter disappear if it has insufficient data: when switching games and when entering the menu.
The game-specific button mapping interface now shows the global mappings with ‘(global)’ next to their DS button. This better conveys the entire set of mappings that apply to a game (GitHub issue #19).
The most recently played ROM now goes to the top instead of the bottom (GitHub issue #21).
The text colors are now loaded in TEMPGBA/SYSTEM/GUI/uicolors.txt for theming (GitHub issue #7).
We know that dstwo is the only flashcard which can play GBA games on 3ds and dsi, it is not need slot 2 card, so the emulator is very important, though the GBA emulator is not perfect at the moment, but the dstwo GBA emulator is the best. That is why i always recommend dstwo.
