    Don't get me wrong, I'd love for new teams to get on the scene and make some new hacks, whether better than Gateway or not. The problem I have is that these clones are blatantly just ripping off Gateway, if they were doing their own work and adding new features themselves, I wouldn't have the slightest problem.

    It would be funny if the gateway card that can be used for piracy actually takes measurements to prevent someone else from copying stuff.
    BTW. i think DRM is used wrongly here. I think GateWay is not really in a position to claim rights anyway in this situation :D

    Yeah exactly right. A company that makes products to run counterfeit software implementing anti-counterfeiting measures.

    Nothing good will come out of this.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Maybe the former, probably neither. The site has gone down several times in the last 5 months.
    People always think its a crisis. :P Relax.

    I bet it'll be released after november 22 so they can test new Legend of Zelda compatibility and also improve their features and security...

    i wrote to team GW

    i was buy gateway, but only i want to know, when will you free the firmware 2.0?

    answer

    The wait shouldn't be very long now. We can't give a date yet as we want to make
    sure that just like our past firmware, this new one, and the ones coming after,
    are 100 working with all consoles we support. This takes a lot of intensive
    testing.
    Once testing is complete, we will release the firmware, and of course you will
    be informed.

    The firmware hasn't even been sent to beta testers yet. So it'll be a bit longer.

    Or maybe they don't trust their beta testers as they previously leaked the firmwares they provided them and are testing the stuff themselves ?

    Would be nice if they at least give some hopes info as for v4.5+ support. If not - not gonna buy GW3 for sure...

    Except they've already announced they're sending it to beta testers in the first post of this thread?

    urh dur, they said they were working on it, don't you know the proverb ? Don't sell the bear's skin before you killed it, they don't want people to believe stuffs that could not happen, now keep calm or buy a 4.5 3DS, not like those are rare or anything...

    Have you ever heard of something called 'lie'(they obviously want to avoid the files to end up in the hands of the cloner teams) , Also maybe they have internal beta testers, beta test doesn't mean going through internet spreading files to everyone and them not sending bug reports as they mainly are here only for previous access right ?

    Knowing how "impossible" to hack 4.5+ would make them be more quite stating about "working on it"... Or just face it that they can't do it... Would be fun if R4i will actually do it :D

    R4i wont do it, R4i are just opportunists who did small reverse engineering on Gateway and managed to make their code work on their shitty cheap hardware, they obviously are here only for the money, challenge doesn't seem to interest them...
