    Hi
    First of all: I don't want to buy one a gw nor do I want to use it #sighaxmasterrace.
    But I plan to buy a dstwo plus. The only thing I want to use is the excellent ds mode. But what happens if I accidentally boot gw mode in the dstwo? Can I recover the Bootrom brick with sighax? Thx in advance.

    I think you need a hardmod to unbrick it.
    But I wouldn't worry, you would have to jump through hoops to boot Gateway Mode on B9S. Just don't put the Gateway files on your 3DS at all and there's no way you could accidentally boot it.

    Booting gateway mode on a firmware above 11.2 on the sysnand has a chance of removing any entry point exploit such as a9lh or sighax.When it gets removed,the brick depends on the model.A old 3ds will just have sighax or a9lh removed but still function with ofw,while a new3ds will be permanitly bricked.So you mainly only boot gateway off an emunand on a firm that's on 11.2.
