    I think these 2 things are very similar
    Everyone remembers the destructiveness of the 1999 Cih virus right? no? Well Alright
    Cih when ran will put a Count down on April 26th and Blue Screened and flashed the bios on the motherboard.
    Gateway, when using beta 2.2+ when used MAY Blue Screen and flash nand etc on February 4th...
    Very Similar

    Just to let you know I do not have a 3ds flashcart but anyway, if this is true then it makes sense that so far people who have already had theirs bricked has at least changed the date since they first used it (Maybe if wrong or play coin hacking)

    So lets see how this massive brickfest will go on on this day?

    Yes, here is some code that may or may not be actually in Gateway's launcher (we won't tell you) that supposedly does this (I have no clue actually) so yeah, believe me because I'm really smart (or so we're told)

    Seems legit.

    - Every bricking thread ever made

    Conspiracy thread time. Xexyz caused every flashcard brick in the world because he was born on that day.

    *insert terrible poll here that has nothing to do with flashcard bricks*

    I don't want to sound mean, but we already have a thread spinning from the exact same quote:

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/what-happens-after-feb-4th.361424/

    The mention of a computer virus is interesting, but there really is no correlation - the code may or may not be there, no confirmed snippets of it were ever presented and although it's practically certain that "something's cooking" in that regard, we just don't know what at this point in time. In order to minimize the chaos, it'd be great if we kept all information related to the matter in as little threads as possible. :)

    Seriously what would be the point of doing this ?
    They lead the market the won't kill themselves...
    Why don't post this kind of things in 3DS "NOOB PARADISE - Ask questions here" or "3DS Hacking Ideas: Post Your Ideas Here!" ?

    Didn't see that thread also

    you're a reporter now!



    It's just that I made a 98Se computer recently and been concerned about CIH. Remembering the payload and seems really similar to gateway so yeah anyway
