    ATTENTION: Patching gateway's Launcher.dat v2.0b2 will randomly lock your 3DS NAND.
    You need a Hardware mod to unlocked your console.




    Hex Patching, the good ol way
    [IMG]
    Code:
    0000FC20: AD 63 43 68 DB EA 16 8C EB 1D DA 8A 3E DD 81 0F
    0000FC30: FB 1E
    000FFAF4: A6 F3
    
    From Normmatt

    Gateway 2.0B2 Launcher.dat (wont provide link at not allowed to GBATemp rules so no one please post)
    +
    Patched with the above Hex
    =
    Gateway Mode loads Retail Carts but with Region Free, you can even still use the EmuNAND so can have 7.1.0-14

    this will not play ANY Roms, only official carts

    You can use this without any need for a 3DS Flashcard also
    so if you want your 4.1>4.5 Console to have EmuNAND and Region Free Patches only, this is for you

    Enjoy

    Download the File to Patch the Launhcer.dat
    Patch will be updated when more code is found and removed

    all you need is a DS Flashcard working on 3DS Firmwares 4.1>4.5 for this
    because you can use the Gateway installer.nds to install the MSET Exploit and then load your new patched Launcher.dat

    1. Download file
    2. Copy GW's launcher.dat into the same folder as the *.exe
    3. Start the *.exe. It should show "file patched successfully"
    4. Copy the Launcher.dat into the Root of your microSD card
    5. Install the Exploit (with the GW_INSTALLER.NDS)
    6. Now you can go to Settings -> General Settings -> User settings -> DS profile
    7. Your 3DS is region free

    Ive noticed alot of News sites appear to be reporting this WRONG when coming to updating to 7.1.0
    Once the patch is applied DO NOT USE THE NORMAL UPDATE METHOD
    you must first create a EmuNAND otherwise you will update your normal NAND and loose the Exploit
    Please follow the Instructions included in the Gateway files on how to create the EmuNAND

    Could someone explain please a little more about what this can do?

    I understand the use, but won't you still need a flashcart to launch Gateway mode?

    So wait.... This means that after patching the hex codes, GW mode will allow you to load retail carts from any region??? Holy moley.

    All we need is to figure out why retail saves on emunand and sysnand differ and I will be getting a new 4.5 3DS.

    basically, you can make a 4.5.0 3DS Region Free + 7.1.0

    nothing Pirate related

    Is this altering something in the launcher? I mean, could this patch affect other functionalities of the original launcher?

    Edit: I just reread the OP, so the answer to my question is a big yes.

    How exactly do you patch the file?
    Just open the launcher.dat in a hex editor and change the values in the respective addresses?

    EDIT: If I apply the patch, can I still play ROMs in GW Mode?

    once patched GW Mode wont play roms, it plays Retail
    you will have to switch between the modified launcher.dat and the standard Gateway launcher.dat

    Ok. So just to clarify. This hex patch breaks rom loading but enables region free for retail cards. Any information about the corrupt save issue prevalent with running retail cards on emunand?

    Carts which use the 6.x saving crypto will corrupt if run on this firm. There is no easy way to fix that I'm afraid.

    but if you already have a save using the 6.X KeyY it will come up as corrupted
    if not it will save fine but will come up corrupted if used in a system not using EmuNAND

    In that case, you can go there and make a topic about it -.-u I just posted that for those who don't want to patch the file by themselves and that was the easiest solution for a download link.

    That post is abandoned ... but if this makes you not complain...

    I added a loop link there, something actually stupid since the post of that forum is not going to be visited by people other than users from this thread.

    wow, GBATemp sure has some stupid rules, like not linking to a freaking LOADER FILE.... It's liberal bullshit like this that makes everything go to shit. It's not like the loader even supports piracy, for fuck's sake...
