    Yeah, classic mode. Everything works for retail cartridges, including online functionality if you've updated your emuNAND.

    Actually my recommendation would be to install and start with 2.0b2, update to the newest emuNAND, download any eShop apps you want to use, update any retail cartridges that require updates to be played online, and then revert to the 2.0b1 launcher. Gives you all the functionality, none of the risk. Although eShop and system settings will no longer launch (in emuNAND). Not a big deal IMO since messing with system settings in emuNAND too much can brick you anyway, and you should be able to get everything you want from the eShop in one go.

    No, you are stating speculation as fact.

    Firstly the official Gateway launcher has a sanity check that should prevent any 'brick code' from running. The reports of legitimate gateway users being bricked is questionable at best.

    It is fine to give someone fair warning but what you are doing is fear mongering.

    Take your head out of Gateways ass. It's already been shown that file corruption (which can happen accidentally if you have a faulty sd card) can cause the same effect, sanity check or not. Other far more knowledgeable users (such as neimod) have already weighed up on this matter, and I take their opinion on much higher authority than yours.

    Gateway bricking already happened to at least one other user on this forum (apollooo) and a number of users from other places. Gateway want to pretend these cases don't exist (since its bad reputation for them), but the fact remains that they never would have happened if gateway weren't a bunch of greedy fucks who went around programming trojans onto their software. Shame on them, and shame on you for defending this stupid practice.

    If you're using 7.1 with 2.0b1 there will be some bugs.
