I am seriously considering to do the reservation to get this beautiful Zelda new 3DS here in japan, but knowing that the firmware of this Zelda version will probably be at least 9.4, I wonder if there is a good chance that might ban me from using gateway on it forever (or at least until the "next update").

From what I heard here, they are working on new way to launch the loader, but is there any information about this method working on more recent firmwares?

Edit: added a poll to ask the nice people around here to help me choose :D

Edit2: 9.4 out of the box... now I am really struggling to know what to do. I guess I can resell it, since there is no seal inside, and I was very careful not to leave any dust or fingerprint while trying it, but... seeing I was the only one in my shop here waiting for it today, I wonder if it will really be easy to sell...

If you opened it than its lost its value, so it will be a "somewhat" of a collectable.

I guess this part will be ok, since I don't think there is a seal on the box. And even if there is a seal, here in japan those kind of stuff don't lose its value as easily as in western country, that's quite the opposite :D
I am just wondering if it is really worth the wait, seeing the lack of news from gateway about the N3DS support.
For sure if they never release it this N3DS might just take the dust, since the regionthree loader doesn't work on the N3DS...

Sincerely I doubt it, because the launch stock of N3DS is probably outside the factory for some time now, I think there is a big delay between the time it is made, and the actual distribution.
Or else why would we have the brand new N3DS models still in 9.1 max out of the box here?
But who knows... since they don't communicate on the N3DS exploit...

Just got my N3DS Zelda, very sadly it is 9.4...

Now the next good question is: should I bring it back to the shop right now, or wait for gateway to release a solution on the 9.4 firmware, and sell it on amazon if nothing comes out? (which might not really surprise me...)

I know your feeling bro... Just hoping gateway will release something to save us soon, or that someone will make the regionthree work on N3DS...

is a shame that your N3ds XL come with firmware 9.4.
If the handheld is very beloved for you, just buy a second had 3ds for gateway desires (i see many pretty cheap ones in ebay) and keep played legal with the N3ds XL.

I don't understand why everyone has the same misconception that a 9.4 nn3ds is any less exploitable than a 9.0 console!

Because we still don't know if the new 3ds gateway exploit (if it is released one day...) max supported firmware will be 9.2 like the normal 3DS or 9.4...

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.
