    16/05/2016: GW Time Machine app & A9LH Installer
    Posted on May 16, 2016


    Today we are proud to announce the (limited) release of 2 new highly anticipated Gateway updates that will please all current and future Gateway users but also the whole 3DS community.

    First the GateWay TimeMachine app can be launched via the homebrew channel therefore valid up to 10.7 or any future homebrew advancements. It is a free unrestricted tool that will have user verified region and device type files that greatly simplifies the a9 install process.

    Next the Gateway A9LH Installer is a highly integrated GW menu app, that auto detects system and state of install, considerably simplifying the install procedure especially for the N3DS.

    Once the A9LH Installer is complete the console will now boot automatically straight into GW menu within a few seconds after powerup.

    They are currently in the hands of a few selected beta-testers. Please check your email today and later in the week if we contacted you for that matter (beta testing being in several steps, you might be contacted later this week).

    Expected release to the public is May 22nd.

    P.S.: We are not taking any responsibility for any damage done to your console by unauthorized used of a non beta-tester. If we did not send you the files directly, do not use them until the public release.

    one question: what payload will this install to NAND? will it read arm9loaderhax.bin (which then reads Launcher.dat or whatever), or just Launcher.dat? reading Launcher.dat directly could make it hard to use things like Decrypt9.

    I hope Gateway will let us one day automatic update to the newest sysnand.
    Would be nice for Pokémon Sun and Moon :).

    So they're giving this Time Machine thing to the whole community for free is how I read it. Interesting.
    Hopefully, it actually does make a9lh masterracing easier. (and I assume it has downgrading built in?)

    So what, does it just downgrade and then install A9LH for you or something?

    @astronautlevel I've got no experience with PlaiSysUpdater or OTPHelper, mind explaining what's similar about this and what Gateway has offered?

    PlaiSysUpdater is the recommended downgrade tool as of right now. OTPHelper simplifies the process of n3ds unbricking, nand restoring, and OTP retrieval.

    Hopefully the downgrade tool is as stable as 4.X downgrading.
