    Hi guys,

    I always loved the 3ds and grow very fond of hacking it after first hearing about Gateway emerging.

    After playing around intensely with the 3DS for quite some time I managed to find some weak spots which allowed me to create an exploit for the 6.2.0-12 firmware.

    Since it is simple built I modified the Gateway 1.0 launcher to use my exploit to run game backups on the 6.2.0-12 firmware.

    I always thought of me as part of the free software movement and planned to release the modified launcher free for all. Unfortunately I lost my job because the company discovered that I was using a big part of its resources on tinkering with the 3ds.

    This really depressed me and I couldn't find a new job until now. Because of that I thought about making money with my creation instead.

    The logical step would be emailing Gateway about wanting to sell a exploit they could use for their product, but I read very often on this forums that they are involved with the chinese mafia somehow and I am very afraid of having to deal with them. I want to do this anonymously and I don't trust services like Paypal or Western Union for this.

    I am only good with technical stuff and was never good handling my social life nor do I have a clue about any business rules or manufacturing my own flashcard.

    I thought about creating a website which lets you download a customized launcher which only works on the 3ds specified by the customer who paid for it, but running this anonymously would be a real pain if I actually want to receive the money.

    I am completely on loss here, I need money desperately but I don't even know if a 6.2 exploit is really interesting/valuable since the most recent firmware release is 9.1.0-20 and it does not work there for sure, I checked. I also don't want to Nintendo to find me.

    It would be great if you could me give some hints here for dealing with Gateway safely and/or managing a secure money transfer without BTC. (I need real money)

    Obviously I will not do something only because someone wrote it on the internet, but maybe you can provide me some good help.

    I set up an email account for contacting me: (not a typo)

    Thank you

    You may want to start with showing some type of proof of your exploit.

    You have one post here, claim that Gateway works with Chinese mafia, and provide no proof whatsoever of your "exploit"
    The chances that someone believes you are infinitesimal.
    Good luck with your search

    If true, a cryptocurrency might be your best bet.

    Never heard of Bitcoin? Use circle or coinbase to transfer to USD.

    im not sure they would go for bitcoin without major proof(i doubt a video would be sufficient to hand over cash)....which in turn would possibly expose your exploit (if it exists)...catch 22....would they pay via irreversable means or would they ask for proof and rip it off

    I'd agree with the general consensus smells a lot like bullshit, however if you're serious, I'd recommend you create a proof of concept video, email Gateway letting them know what you've found, find a reliable escrow provider, allow the third party to hold the funds until Gateway are happy that you've provided the information you claim to have, when everyone's happy, third party can transfer funds to you, no involvement of any mafia or nintendo.

    Even if you found some kind of mset like exploit, it doesnt mean it'll be useful to them..iirc, theres an exploit on 7.x but only for arm11 code.. theres no arm9 or kernel exploit, and the gateway relys on a kernel exploit.

    If you sent them much proof I guess they might be ready to pay.
    But ofcourse with one post is this bit weird.

    Or when you are advanced enough you could try selling it here with proof ofcourse.

    Edit: Nvm didn't saw his name. Yeh totally foolish.

    Ohhhh.... let me stop you there pal, because that one was frankly priceless! :lol: Priceless as in, I'm not gonna pay you a penny for it, but nevertheless you still made my day! :D Now if you would be so kind as to tell us in your next post you've found out someone on here has won the lottery in Nigeria......

    But IF you're telling the truth, I suspect you're probably still not in luck as I'm not sure you're talking a kernel exploit here anyway - so I'd say since you wasted your employers time, wages and general resources, you've only really got yourself to blame/comeuppance...

    And I have created a modchip for Wii U, PS4, Xbox One and New 3DS. Just trust me on this, I promise it might be real! Who needs video proof or any sort of proof at all? I mean, don't you trust you fellow man? *End of sarcasm*

    No seriously, this is really something you must SHOW works. I'm surprised you took Gateway launcher 1.0 that really doesn't have 5.X+ support.
