    2-3 months ago I bought a New 3DS import, gateway and memory card. I don't want to now have to buy extra things like a game I already sold. Are they eventually going to support just their own regular dang card?

    There's no other known entry point at this moment than OOT. Cubic Ninja is said to be supported soon, but there's no ETA on that. So yep, you don't have much choice.

    (there's also Sky3DS and clones, but buying a flashcard to use another flashcards sounds weird.)

    I just wanna play roms, so Sky3DS sounds like it's for me. Hopefully the next handheld they make won't have such a messy scene...

    And one could even use the GW launcher to some extent without a GW cart using a Sky3DS. But you might be better off with ninjhax, though.

    Can the Sky3DS boot the gateway launcher from the latest sysnand firmware? If not, I could always keep my 2DS on 9.2 just to boot the Gateway launcher for dumping my own roms and saves.

    Since that's not even possible with a retail cartridge...
    And before you ask: the same goes for ninjhax. No h4xx1ng with any FW above 9.2 so far. Only roms with Sky3DS.

    Well I'm getting a New3DS soon anyways, so I'll just keep the 2DS on 9.2U for dom and save dumping, and the N3DS for legit stuff + Sky3DS.

    Use cart 1 Load exploit. (OoT)
    Use cart 2 until next reboot. (GW)
    We're talking a two step process. :huh:

    Now that I think about it? It's better for me than using the go exploit.

    Also, filfat really? Is that EVER necessary? You have your views, and they have theirs.. You do not need to be so rude.

    Nope.

    I personally don't think Gateway is forcing users to buy too much extra stuff, the save dongle + zelda OOT isnt too much extra money :D


    I will skip the SKy3ds, gateway is all I need; I'm guessing the sky3ds card using gateway method is only for those who Have a N3DS + Sky3ds but not OOT right, good thing we've got that method working now too :)




    I second this, Do not sell them, they are worth so much, I am lucky that one day picked up zelda collectors edition for Gamecube for £6 when its usually going for £25, uber lucky me :D

    unopened zelda oot 3d in a few years could be worth like $140 or something so hold onto that stuff guys

    No sell your stock and be done. No one likes the frustration of having to swap cards when one can do, I don't mind but hey I don't speak for 99% who complain.

    I think a Zelda OoT cart with the save exploit installed on it already would be worth the premium today. I think today is the day to sell really.
    If you look at N64 carts, they aren't worth more than the day they were made. They went up in price until the console became obsolete... then slowly dropped back to original retail prices.
    I see Zelda OoT dropping down to $50 after they release a "remastered edition" for 4DS. (where you can smell your rupees. AND don't tell me rupees don't have a smell.... How do you know?!?!)

    Actually there is an ETA on that: A few hours ago. Take a look at the Gateway site.
