    So the Gateway Team made a version for 9.9, but does this allow me to downgrade to a complete other version?

    It's for an emuNAND 9.9, not a sysNAND. You still have to be on 9.2 to downgrade.

    Oh I didn't know. So there is no possibility for 9.9 to run Gateway or RxTools?

    Do you think there will be a possibility in the future?

    At this point, people are trying, but it's expected that it will happen. Nobody knows when though.

    Maybe it's possible to downgrade your device using Tubehax/IRONhax/Ninjhax.
    If Smealum would be able to do that, I will be sooo fking happy

    No. There isn't.

    There isn't any possibility of a kernel hack using the current usermode exploit.

    Smealum won't do that as it enables piracy which isn't the point of Ninjhax. The only reason other people can use it for rxTools and whatnot is because they managed to essentially break older versions of Ninjhax and use it to gain access to the rest of the system.

    That's a debate for a whole other time that is far beyond the scope of this thread, but let's leave it at legal issues.

    Piracy is big deadly bait for the predator that is Nintendo. Making something for the express purpose of piracy is like going "Hey, crush me and everything I own!"

    I have no idea how flash cards have been mostly immune. The R4 was actually a villain in one of the Hyperdimension Neptunia games.

    Essentially this, even if a dev likes piracy and would try to enable them, doing it publicly is asking to have lawyers on your neck, and we know that Nintendo have good lawyers since the Donkey Kong vs King Kong case.
    And in Smealum's case not enabling piracy is doing him well, probably (wild guess from me) Nintendo could had patched the ninhax 2/ironhax/tubehax already but didn't invest heavily on this yet because the kernel exploit used by folks through ninjhax 1 was patched.

    Arfoire/Majikon, and there was also those tank like common enemies called R4i-SDHC on Rebirth;1 (I dunno if they were on vanilla or when they began to appear and with these names). I really liked the fact that they associated those who want to bring destruction to Gameindustri with piracy devices.
    Nintendo tried to shutdown R4/Majikon makers many times, the best they managed was to slow down distribution of those devices in Japan and other major market countries so they just gave up on attacking developers/producers and focused on the "middle mans".

    You probably have a higher chance at winning the lottery than anyone releasing a kernel exploit anytime soon. You're probably looking at a good couple of years before any .cia support for any systems above 9.2.
