After gateway 4.0B Private Beta released, there are many feedback sent to gateway official team. Gateway team has been hard- working in deal with the feedback and reports. There is a new private beta -Gateway 3DS 4.1B release which will fix some issue about Gateway Time Machine and improve stability of GATEWAY FASTBOOT(A9LH) feature.

Gateway 3DS 4.1B Private Beta changelog:
1. Fixed >9.2 down to 9.2 Gateway Time Machine issue for N3DS
