Update: The GW3DS team have replied saying that they are covering shipping my bricked 3DS XL system to them in order to see why it bricked. I've agree'd to do so but in the mean while this topic has gone as far as it can in terms of actual discussion and has resorted to slander as well as spam. So I'm closing the topic until I get a reply from the GW3DS team telling me the cause of my 3DS bricking. Which their initial consensus is that my 3DS XL was bricked due to potentially having a developer GW3DS unit. So until then thread = locked. If you have some input there are a few other brick threads or if you have a question for me directly click the PM button. Thanks. Original Post: Warning: Spoilers inside! Sup. So I decided since my internet was out and it still is. (I'm leeching off a friend's internet on one bar but it'll suffice for my needs.) That I would play a 3DS game using my GW3DS on my 4.5 3DS XL system. Having known about the bricks I was very cautious. I used the R4 included with the GW3DS kit to install the DS exploit and used the download I had downloaded previously from the Gateway website for firmware 2.0b. I've already MD5 checked them to be legitimate and not edited in any way possible. So going onward I booted into GW3DS mode or tried to I should say. Each time I tried it would give me a black screen and on the third try I decided to give up on playing. Turning on the system once more resulted in a blue screen. I'm no novice when it comes to 3DS flashcart and I'm in no way shape or form trying to fuel hatred. I just wanted to let other people know that my personal 3DS XL system bricked. Even though I was extremely cautious so that it wouldn't. I plan on emailing the GW3DS team to attempt to help them determine the cause of my brick and also to see if they'll replace my 3DS XL.. It's a shame really. I mean I don't even really play my 3DS XL that often to warrant me being pissed. I'm mostly eh about it since I do own a legit 3DS system on 7.0 for my needs but I would like to see how the GW3DS team handles this. Questions?
