    What is exactly the problem with the latest e-shop titles that keep Gateway from launcing them as 3ds-rom?
    For example the latest picross e6 stays at the 3ds logo screen and needed to be 'crackfixed' and installed as cia.
    I just did that with some idiot-proof walkthrough but have no idea what I am doing.

    So why can't gateway start that game? Is that something they can't fix or do I need to be patient and wait for new version of GW-firmware (difficult!!! :-))

    Didn't they fix that with update 3.4?

    nope, that was a AP check that is used on newer retail carts, the eshop issue is down to encryption, here is a good explination of why gateway cannot "fix" it
    basically newer eshop games use a additional layer to their encyption, its down to the dumper to retrieve the seed (extra key) from their nand and create a crypto fixed version
