    {insert cool story bro meme here}

    There are beta testers in these forums that have confirmed they have the beta. We have come to accept that features tend to be rolled out months later.

    The big question is, why bother posting such a large post that's anti GW in a place that GW users reside and don't really care?

    Uhhh... Two things.

    One. Has anyone actually said they got the beta? As far as I'm aware (And I'll admit I don't lurk the forums anywhere near enough), everyone that reported in was part of the "second wave", and received absolutely nothing.

    Two. I followed this thread to see when GW actually released their support. I honestly do care about it, and I wanted to see how they implemented it. And considering it's the supposed release date, and no new information has come out, I decided to read through the thread. Seeing people continually spout praises for a company that has spectacularly failed to deliver for months drove me to comment. I'm sorry that such things offend you.

    Still, I do actually want to see something released. Both to get everyone to stop saying "I'll wait for Gateways tools, because they'll be better", and to see how they choose to implement things. With the amount of time they're taking, it'll be nice to see if they actually make tools that are better than what is already out there...

    I'm more-so tired of seeing all the GW bashing for not releasing things on time or not giving credits.

    This is how it's been the last 3 years. People praise GW for how well they implement features. We know when something is announced it won't be out for a while. Thus Soon™ became a thing.

    I fully support ether CFW or GW whichever people use, I however do not support all the bashing of GW that people seem to do all the time, especially the people who only use CFW and have never tried GW. People waltz into this thread just to do it, its pointless and disruptive to the point of the thread.

    Let them bash. I enjoy reading about 3ds bricks/soft bricks and what not. Totally digging the attempt trolls at bringing up sad story of a brick code that occurred all so long ago just to make a point.

    Yeah, but you're forgetting one thing. It's a $80 device that circumvents piracy and not something you buy from a store with a warranty. It is was it is and always will be.

    Point A start 3DS (power on)

    The in-between (A9LH loads your favorite CFW) or (menuhax or comparable entrypoint to launch hombrew launcher to launch GW)

    Point B (enjoy games in emuNAND)

    If you do not own Gateway and have A9LH you have options to run many different A9LH CFW.
    If you do own Gateway and have A9LH you have options to run CFW and NTR or GW and Gateway cheat mode (more options is usually a good thing)

    My point is speed aside both solutions allow you play cia on emuNAND.
    Gateway just gives you a little flexibility to use .3ds and utilize their cheat system.

    Worth dropping $50-$80 at this stage of 3DS life cycle - probably not
    Worth spending your downtime while you wait for a new cia to install on your CFW bashing Gateway - I guess but I'll meet you online while we are both at point B.

    To Gateway or not to Gateway that is the question.

    Better soon(tm) than never. I'm still a fan of Gateway and with never-ending updates. Even though most of these stuff are unnecessary since the 3DS is now fully hacked, they're still supporting their cards. Henceforth, I'm a fan.

    Private exploits, what? http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/MSET_exploit
    "The MSET exploit is an exploit for the System Settings application of the Nintendo 3DS (MSET). The vulnerability was originally discovered by
    ichfly in 2012, and was later used by the GateWay 3DS."
    Smeas exploit was used in ninjhax, until Gateway founded a way to get a kernel exploit. You can search "ReiNand Emunand 10.3 (:", he was the first one with 10.3 emunand. And If you search for "Simple guide downgrading your 3ds,you'll see that tuxsh, Steveice10 and others made memchunkhax2.

    You forgot a third category of people (who are actually rational). The ones who bought a Gateway first, then switched to "better" (with quotes because it depends on the need, like for example if you use cheats everyday then GW is still better, but if you want a9lh then Luma wins) alternatives when available.
    But actually, as rational as these people can be, when people from this third category speak, the ones from the first category assume they are in the second one and conversely so the discussion doesn't get any better.

    many talk about GW card bricking the console, did this happen to any GW red card owners ?

    i personally like the Red and also the Blue one, i use Blue lot of times for my ds games and it works good.

    as for red ,it has helped me putting hax on my other 3ds consoles easier less hassly etc.

    i would not say GW is a bad card, i like the card.
    and it has not bricked any of my consoles.

    i only use the official updates from them.

    Normally, I don't participate in bashing hardware or fanbases, but let me add my 5 cents...

    Most users in this thread are annoyed by GW not following through with their promise to release today, but there are other problems...
    1. The GW 4.5 downgrade is messy to say at best. 'Pure' GW users might not care, but if you want to move on with more recent stuff like a9lh at a later point, gl;hf with your messed up NAND. I could even imply this is intended by team GW, but tbh I doubt it. And their messy downgrade might have been an acceptable solution (cause it also was the only one) at some point in time, but it is no more. Now, they come around with a 'Time Machine', so, will we get more messy down- / upgrades? And, thinking this further, will GW users at some point be closed out from switching to another solution completely?
    2. Despite team GW knowing about this issue (they have been told numerous times), their signature patching is incomplete. Ever tried to view the manual of a originally seed encrypted game? Ever tried to install a theme pack CIA and failed? Ever could not install a CIA that your CFW using friend could install without trouble? Incomplete sig patching is at fault. Being a developer myself, I can tell you, fixing this would take one of their devs an afternoon, tops, but they simply don't do that.
    3. Instead of fixing the above, very obvious, and very annoying problem, they announce features to build up the hype train and then don't follow through.
    For a lot of users, staying with GW may be perfectly acceptable, and I perfectly understand this, but it is not for all. I can tell by the sheer number of workarounds (requested by former and current GW users!) I had to implement in D9 to fix problems that GW caused. To add something to the current discussion, especially the second bullet point above makes me doubt that GW will ever release the stuff they promised in their last update.

    Adding to this - the most reasonable step for team GW to take at this point in time would be to open source their stuff. They could still maintain the need for the GW card as a dongle by keeping part of it as closed source.

    People here don't understand that 90% bought their GW card back in 2013 when there was no other option for years to come. No shit that now it's pointless to buy one with all the free CFW's out there, we know, we get the concept; but we have already made our purchase and because of that we will stick to it since every other "mod" offers nothing more interesting than what we already have. We are fine and dandy with our Gateway cards and we don't give a shit if it takes time to release new updates, so why do you?
    Why do I have to read through pages of geeks who bash on something they don't even own just to find info about updates on my flashcard? Don't like it, don't buy it, avoid it, shut up, get a life and stop flooding the topic. Bashing mindlessly on GW should really start to be prohibited for fucks sake.

    I should probably say since they mentioned it would run up to 10.7, I imagine it's going to run the same as the other sysUpdaters (which run from ARM11), so it can't screw up NAND as much as their 4.5 downgrader (which ran from ARM9 I think). so it'd probably do the same to NAND as much as Safe/Plai/normal sysUpdater does today.

    I'm curious if it's going to solve the strange soft-bricking-post-downgrade issue though... for all the shit Gateway gets I think they do make their tools pretty noob-friendly and reliable-ish (4.5 downgrader screwed up NAND yes but it hasn't bricked a console, has it?), so there's that. :P

    Can someone point me to some thread or whatever describing or complaining about the "screwed up NAND" problem after using GW's downgrade ? Because I used it back then, then came back to 9.2 when menuhax was a thing (and switched to rxTools since GW didn't have menuhax support) then installed a9lh when it was a thing (and switch to former AuReiNand since rxTools didn't have a9lh support) and I don't recall having any specific problems with my NAND.
