from gateway website:

We will not be able to support emunand 9.5 or higher for a while on the New 3DS. This is only an issue for the New 3DS

and the reason , well it seems that n3ds is not just a better hardware ,some major software changes can be done on it

here's the log from 3dbrew on 9.5.0-22 firmware:

New3DS NATIVE_FIRM

The ARM9-loader has added a new keyX with keyslot 0x16 that is generated on hard-boot. The ARM9 binary is now encrypted with this key. In order to decrypt it, you'll need arm9hax on firm > 9.4, or some form of bootromhax.

as you see , they are some security features exclusively for n3ds firmware which are not present on regular 3ds
maybe the gateway team can bypass it like 7.x encryption , maybe not , who knows...

it's obvious that's there's full kernel access. so how does this relate to gw not being able to make emunanding?

if i am understanding this correctly,then this could mean the n3ds update is coming real soon,otherwise they would just not announce this now and keep working on it instead

Not necessarily. Last time the key was changed it took half a year for GW to solve it. GW knows this is a big problem and has instead decided to ditch 9.5 emunand ASAP in favor of finishing up N3DS support. That means GW knows they can't fix it for a while so might as well ignore it since we have a lot of work to do still.

I hope it comes soon, but I won't get my hopes up.

I wouldn't say real soon, but it sounds as if they're working on it. And that's the question. Cancel my New 3DS XL preorder or not? I don't need a 200-EUR-brick.

Don't really care personally, emunand 9.x (9.0-9.2) is far enough.

The only thing you would lose not having 9.5 is eshop access, and you can still get the game updates as .cia files so it's a fake problem.

About New Games, after Majora's Mask, it's not like any big games has big announced soon so it's not really a problem for me, and if I'm really interested by a game, I can still buy it (like I often did, last game I bought was Pokemon AS), piracy is not my main motivation for gateway personally.

Preorder, then return it unopened if GW doesn't release support within the return window.

I don't think GW will release anything within 30 days of the New 3DS release. But they'll release an update within 6 month or so, it would be fine enough.

I heard the NN3DS will be shipping on 9.2 to the uk, not 100% sure though just what I have been told by a fellow friend that works at a game shop but not GAME itself of course. :)

Edit: but yeah worst case scenario I could still order an Australia unit from 365games.co.uk :)
