    Evening people.

    If one owns the Gateway card on 4.5 is it worth getting Smealum's new exploit game?

    Can't Gateway do everything Smea's can but with more?

    The Gateway can't launch homebrews but I might be wrong.

    Would it not also be possible to use Gateway to launch Cubic Ninja and then run the exploit?

    My understanding was that the Gateway could already run homebrew.

    gateway could already run homebrew for a long time, if you have a gateway compatible console + the card, then smeas exploit is useless for you


    ... ofc it can

    Funny that some people believe that Gateway is stuck in their 1.0 launcher.

    Wow.

    Aye, that's a dream that has yet to come true.

    And save editing doesn't count. That's not the "On-the-fly" cheating I'm interested in.

    Yeah, I was really spoiled by DSTWO's real time cheat menu
    And "real" real time save. Gawd it's convenient not having to soft/hard reset all the time.

    At last probably a sensible topic about the new ssspwn thingymajiggy that is coming! I hope you might be able to use the Homebrew Channel alongside Gateway, I know GW already has Homebrew since way back but it might open up other good options for Gateway users so I have voted both but look if it made no difference I would just stick with Gateway Homebrew and not use the sssssssspwn app.! :)

    I ssspwn leads to a 3DS ROM loader then who needs gateway? (yes I know smealum says no ROM loader but if it's a kernel exploit it's only a matter of time for another CIA installer or ROM loader)

    In all likelihood they both will have their own valid merits. Making it circumstantial whether Gateway suffices for your needs or whether SSSpwn may offer some functionality that Gateway doesn't.
    Though to make an accurate assessment on this, you'd have to wait untill you can compare them alongside eachother.

    SSSPWN doesn't need to offer more functionality than Gateway to be relevant. If it offers the same functionality for free, then it is relevant.

    The OP specifically mentions their relevance alongside eachother though.
    Not as alternatives to a user that has neither.

    "If you already own a 4.x device and Gateway - does SSSpwn offer any additional functionality or is everything already covered by Gateway on 4.x?"

    Do some reading on wololo.net, very explanatory articles regarding what the difference is between a kernel mode exploit (MSET, CFW, Gateway+clones) and usermode exploit (SSSpwn)

    Kernel mode can boot ROMs and userland can boot homebrew. sssPWN will never EVER run ROMs no matter how much one crosses their fingers or prays to their higher being of choice at night. Sorry.

    That is, of course, unless a very VERY talented duel skill amateur developer/reverser engineer with very VERY expensive equipment can find a kernel vulnerability and use smealums savegame exploit as an entry point. (A.K.A what the devs call an "privilege escalation")

    So yeah, i wouldn't be getting my hopes up and just get a Gateway card so you can get in on all the action.
