    DO NOT USE DO NOT USE DO NOT USE
    can cause your console to be unusable[​IMG]

    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 Launcher.dat

    1. Download file Either MT Cards or Gateways latest Files from there sites
    2. Copy GW's or MT-cards launcher.dat to the SD
    3. Install the DS Mode exploit using any DS FLashcard
    4. Now you can go to Settings -> General Settings -> User settings -> DS profile
    5. Boot Into Classic Mode
    Done
    THiS iS NO LONGER A RECOMMEND METHOD, DO NOT USE

    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

    awesome stuff! cool that it is such a simplistic patch! (although this doesn't mean it was easy to find haha)

    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...
