    Remember how after the R4i and 3DSlink's 2.0 FWs, they said they would be doing their own code from now on?

    Well this is "their own code" :tpi:
    GW can't be held reliable since from 2.0 onwards, R4i and 3DSLink were "doing their own work"

    This is really spreading - locking one GW thread makes two new ones pop up, they're like hydra heads.

    Then we should do what was done to the hydra and KILL IT WITH FIRE. All of them except one, that is. It really IS like the hydra.

    Someone needs to take your signature, change the consoles to 3DS flashcart logos, and you've got yourself a new webcomic :P.

    I can see this working, but the plots would be monothematic - just people bawing at each other. ;O;

    The way I see it, is that Gateway developers wrote the actual code that bricks the consoles, whether it is triggered or not under specific conditions is irrelevant, considering they wrote it, they are either directly or indirectly responsible for damaging those consoles. I do hope they will know better in their future versions than to put code that performs permanent damages on consumers' units. There are plenty of ways to make it a nightmare for clone cards manufacturers to steal their code without damaging countless units and gateway's own reputation along with it.

    The fact that rival companies stole Gateway's code does not absolve them of their share of responsibility in this matter.

    People should know when they go too far.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Have you even read this thread? http://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-ing-bricked-never-even-use-clones.360657/

    Legit GW launcher with correct MD5 on both the pc and on the sd card. Still bricked. Also no region free patch.

    But Crown 3DS doesn't supports "Ramble Pack".
    Btw, it's not impossible that Gateway is actually from Crown 3DS project, but only renamed since Crown was way burned with their random % progress bar.
