    ok a couple of hours ago i started systematically rebooting gateway mode over and over to hopefully finally prove that b2 causes bricks....i recorded the whole process, although i will trim the video and upload to youtube, MD5 is correct, official Launcher.dat is used....after seeing many people saying they ran diagnostics before their brick i decided to give that a go a few times and bingo we have a official launcher files and a bricked 3ds caught on camera twice now (i did actually brick 6 times but only recorded it twice)

    Things i have already tried​
    Booting with emunand still triggers the diagnostics brick, without emunand it still bricks, with the date set before 4th Feb (i set it to 25/12/2013) still bricks, i have verified the date modified and MD5 on the launcher files before and after the bricks occurred, both of which where the original values, i have also tried multiple different SD card, which have been freshly formatted​
    Stats so far
    Standard boots ---150+----0 bricks
    booting to gateway menu without running diagnostics----30+ --------0 Bricks
    Booting to gateway menu and running diagnostics -------- 23 -------- 6Bricks
    draw your own conclusions as to the causes

    FAQ's

    But what about B1 god damn it, is that safe?
    I tested B1 with the same method just to be sure and it appears to be perfectly safe to use

    does this mean I'm 100% safe if i avoid diagnostics-
    Sorry i cant 100% guarantee it but the odds look alot better than if you go running diagnostics, but if you want to be 100% safe, stick to B1

    So if i brick can i recover my system somehow -
    Yes,you can use a raspberry pi to unlock your nand, this does require some soldering, so you may be better off looking for someone to do it for you if you aren't very good at soldering

    So gateway is the devil ...am i right ehhh well am I?????
    sure whatever floats your boat

    HAHAH YOUR BRICKED -
    nah ....im not, technically it shouldn't be called a brick no more as its recoverable

    LOL you are so happy about it...

    I'm actually doing the opposite using the b2 launcher with the date of my 3DS set at 24 December 2013 and making sure the files of my SD card are Dec 2013 as well.

    But why?
    I don't think anyone was doubting that the gateway team are (inadvertently) bricking their own users too.

    did you at least show you making sure it was the correct files in the video? I bet they are going to use the excuse 'not enough proof, mightve been another cards launcher'

    That's pretty nice because now you can upload it to YouTube and we can start to send massive e-mails to the Gateway Team so they will have to do something about it.

    Too late, they probably got their code fixed already so it won't trigger on the original launcher again.

    probs just over 100, i had only just started back up and it happen.........i am not saying its easy or very likely, just that some people are still thinking that its only clones and that they are safe on b2, i wanted to prove it once and for all, i was actually just about ready to give up and declare the bricks where freak coincidences

    what were you doing that caused the brick? just running the gateway exploit?

    Gateway will still deny the problem, they will make up some excuse that it wasn't because of their code.


    uh have you read these forums lots of people think that gateway isn't doing it

    One troll in a Spanglish forum doesn't count as "few people".
