    Its just a thought i had, but could it result being able to boot a "game cart" such as a new gateway card, and get arm11/9 kernel? (keep in mind this is theoretical, and just a guess on the possibility)

    That's not how it works. The Gateway card isn't the exploit.

    No... RegionFive is still only bypassing the region checks performed by the homemenu at launch.

    The cart basically relies on existing ARM 9 and ARM11 exploits to function. It cannot be an entrypoint in itself.

    The Gateway card is a dongle, not an actual flashcart

    You lost me there a bit. What exactly do you mean when saying that? What's the difference between those two for you?

    From the advertised features it might have, it could actually bring some useful stuff that Gateway doesn't do directly.
    But you're not wrong either.

    Well, basically what I am saying, it isn't like you put in the card, load it and it runs GWMenu. The menu is loaded via an entrypoint, then it reads the card to see if you have it inserted, and loads the roms from its microSD. But Gateway could easily make it so that the card isn't needed. It's not like the card has a corrupted header that loads an exploit or anything.

    Oh. I understand what you meant now. You're absolutely right. ;)
    Still useful for .3ds roms though since it's easier to emulate a cartridge than to bypass the cartridge reader to read from SD card.

    By dongle he means that all it does is allow you to run the gateway mode. Like an authentication. The card is not needed in any way for the exploit, but they use it as DRM to insure you bought it.

    Yes, you put it a lot better than I.

    Your explanation was perfectly fine though. More than good enough for me
