    I'm fucking finished with gateway. Been a supporter from day 1 with 2 cards. I'm gonna sell them now. There last comment on there site said an update will be 2 weeks max and that was almost 4 weeks now. There a joke in the scene now.

    If you have a backup that you've made after installing A9LH then you can restore A9LH with a hardmod. Even if you don't have a A9LH backup, you can still restore an older backup with a hardmod to go back to a lesser FW and then hack your console again. Those are your two only choices.

    Restore a NAND backup. Requires a hard mod or MAYBE the DSiWare exploit (which would require another 3DS and certain DSiWare).

    On every startup, 11.3 attempts to overwrite A9LH. This normally means absolutely nothing because A9LH boots before the firmware and protects itself. This coupled with auto-shutdown if .bin files aren't present/no SD card makes it that in almost all circumstances, you cannot run a setup where A9LH is overwritten. However, Gateway's version of A9LH is sadly one such exception because it does NOT protect the firmware. Nor does Gateway offer a warning about this anywhere on the website.

    It is a known fact that booting sysNAND with Gateway's loader on 11.3 bricks the console. Because there is no protection, the firmware attempts to remove A9LH. Perhaps it is trying to patch vulnerable files. Whatever the case, the result is corruption. Which renders the console unbootable.

    With hardmod AND twlnand xorpads you could have dumped with decrypt9

    You have an O3DS, the brick part applies to N3DS
