So I'm getting the impression from these forums and elsewhere that the blue card is a knock-off of some R4i card. Somebody patched the last version of wood to work on this card? However, there are some old reports about bricked 3DS units over at maxconsole and Gateway says not to use any other launchers but theirs. Is there any huge benefit for upgrading from Gateway's original wood 1.56 to the patched 1.62? I notice there's something in the changelog about fixing a problem with Rune Factory and that is a DS game I'll definitely be playing. I prefer playing DS games on the DSi XL. The rigamarole to switch back from DS to 3DS mode (blue card-->install exploit-->red card-->run exploit-->boot emunand) is just too cumbersome. Right now, I'm testing out the Gateway blue on a DSi XL and it seems to work fine with Animal Crossing Wild World. I have not tested too many DS games because I don't have that many (and there are way too many to choose from!).
