    Hello all,

    I have a O3ds XL which i just installed al9h and Luma.
    I updated it to the latest firmware which is 11.0.3 i believe.
    I also have a Gateway card and was wondering am i able to use it with Luma and al9h?
    I read about bricks so wanted to be 100% sure.

    Thanks

    No, Gateway is not updated for 11.3 yet.
    and

    11.3.0-36 Breaks GW. GW currently DOES NOT support 11.3. You will either brick or lose A9LH. More than likely it seems you will just lose A9LH.

    Again, if you attempt to boot GW Mode, while on 11.3, you will lose A9LH or brick.

    If you want to use 11.3, you will not be able to use GW. Don't even try. Only use Luma3DS or other CFW that support 11.3.

    As a reminder, update using Luma3DS. Since this update breaks GW. Don't update to 11.3 if you want to continue using GW Mode.

    Between insane and insecure
    You are really only half right. Gateway 3DS lacks FIRM 0/1 protection, so updating the sysNAND removes A9LH. But updating an emuNAND would be fine. Just right now GatewayCFW is using an older NATIVE_FIRM, so it won't load.

    When you're in gateway mode, you don't have firm protection in place. When you update while in gateway mode, you lose A9LH because the firm is overwritten. This is the only reason gateway should ever break your A9LH, unless you do something really stupid.

    So what shall i do just wait for Gateway to release support for 11.3?
    Once they update Gateway do i just put Blue card in and install then enter Gateway by the normal mode?

    Actually I'll edit my previous post, so no-one tries.
