Sony is the king of vague updates. I have a PS4 and literally every update is just "Stability improvements"

There hasn't been a update since October, and that update was important so i don't know wtf your saying.

Wise to make a win32diskimager backup of your 9.4 emunand incase you either:
a) accidentally update
b) get sick of the update nags
c) corrupt your emunand install somehow

The question is will Sky3ds and qq3ds be able to use 9.5, the answer should be a resounding yes but i'd like to hear from someone who owns one, I wonder if it's also safe for them to update although i'm sure they have no choice

Apaprently it's a yes. Surprised at how long it's taking Nintendo to patch this one out. On the bright side, my Gateway is still working so I can continue doing whatever.

I know this has already been covered but what's the precise reason Sky3ds is easier to patch than Gateway, if anything I'm wanting to think the big N will patch out both or neither!
You heard it heard from a Gateway fan first, I doubt SKY3DS will get blocked atleast for a while

Pretty much. If GW can continually get emunand working why is it a stretch to say sky3ds will live for a while longer. Nintendo will likely figure it out eventually, but they seem to either be incompetent regarding sky3ds and/or don't care that much about it yet. That could change if sky3ds continues to increase their sales.

Basically while it can emulate a cart, it doesn't do it perfectly. neimod already did some tests with it and found that it responds incorrectly to certain commands, so all Nintendo has to do is check for these certain inaccurate commands and it's patcheroni'd. Anyone who says sky3DS cannot be patched is full of crap, DS carts are emulations of a DS cart but they got patched left and right. Gateway uses a system exploit to create an emuNAND and patch out various checks, so you can stay on a lower, vulnerable firmware and Gateway is able to keep doing their patches so their stuff continues to work on newer firmwares.
