    How helpful is this exactly? Not being a dick, just genuinely curious as to how useful this is.

    Interesting. ASIC as expected. 16Mbit serial flash on board for saves/potential updating? Can't make out what the other PLCC is, no markings

    They took it apart to show us the inside of the Gateway. I pretty sure theirs still works.

    Sweet.
    I love things like this.

    I suspected it being packed with hardware like the DSTwo.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    One of the devs on IRC said the Red card's Actel chip is very generic and unspectacular. This kind of makes sense given Gateway is a heavily softmod driven exploit.

    Not that useful, you can work out the circuit layout and components of the Gateway, but since it mainly relies on ICs, which are programmed, the majority of the info witll be found in that programming.
