    Its hard to follow the development of all the different CFW out there. Just wondering if there is any reason to give one a shot if I already have Gateway running on my N3DS ofw 9.2 running emunand.

    Gateway is TECHNICALLY obsolete due to CFW running rampant, however as a gateway user, its nice to have a microSD with games as well. Lack of GBA/DSi support sucks, but hey, I have several other systems I can play those on so no biggie.

    I love my GW. Running .3ds roms is better than .cia
    I don't need to worry about my 3DS' SD card space and don't need to wait 20 minute to install a game.

    Backuping savegame is easier too, just copy the .sav to the PC :)

    with cfw it's like the gateway classic mode, but with all the goodies. you can call it super classic mode. you can run .CIA, run your retail cards, and etc. I'll probably however jump back onto gateway once they have in game cheat codes. the cheat plugin for cfw NTR 3.0 is too complicated for me. :/

    How would you know its any better? It probably could be the same function. Only one way to know for sure is when they release it.

    cool thread, i would like to know this too.

    what i am curious about is, is there another CFW that reqiures no oot etc. for the N3ds and is able to make a Emunand like we do on the GW ?

    i love playing the games as CIA cause it saves them on the screen and no need to load up game, the down point i see in it is the backing up of the .sav files that is a pain in the ass, but i still dont use .3ds format of games.

    anyway is it possible now with other cfw e.g that reiNand one for the n3ds , does it support 9.0 fw? and then can you install emunand and cias ? :wtf: ??

    nope, since mset and rop doesn't work on o3ds. on o3ds I guess the best option is rxtools due to it's activity and emunand support. probably mset and rop will be supported (if they are not already)
    use only a browser to enter cfw is much better than using zelda/cubic ninja in my opinion

    i actually asked cause i am afraid to mess my almost perfect n3ds now, i am able to play all the games i have installed on my emunand.

    will the games really work on Reinand? and my curiousity would be to ,if there will be really no need for oot anymore on my n3ds is that possible with the reinand ?

    Like you, I have a gateway and never learned to install any cfw. Until there is a cfw that runs as easily as my gateway I don't think I'll be taking the time to learn it.

    this Reinand one is actually quite easy, but i am afraid to go on with it as i already also own a GW card and its pretty cool.

    so i guess i will stick to my usual gw card until some sort of hack comes that requires you to only copy some file and install it and bam permanent hack, then that would be worth it .

    Until there is one that can run .3ds files (also ease of use and setup which cfw is not)
    So no imo

    All that cfw stuff is nice and useful for people that didn't invest in a flashcart before all this cfw stuff was possible. My gateway can load 3DS roms, and run the homebrew launcher. I don't need much more. I have a DS lite with slot1 and slot2 carts for NDS and GBA roms.

    Gateway is CFW, all it does is load 3DS files.
    Pasta CFW requires you to drag 3 files over to the SD card :glare:
