    Smea believes that he can make a limited Ninjhax, for 9.7 but that's it. Apparently, yellows8 said that the newest firmware is pretty air-tight so I doubt there will be any arm9 hax, any time soon (I could be wrong). The stuff about GW is probably just bull, to be honest. I could be wrong, though.

    I feel your pain. I had made a NAND backup of 9.2 but updated as the homebrew scene was dead at the time. I had to wait for several months before getting the cash to get a NAND mod installed (I don't have a lot of money to play with).

    Nothing was really going for Ninjhax at the time so I figured I was better off updating but if I knew better I wouldn't have.

    Have an Old black 3ds with 9.2 which is great and then I got an New 3DS XL with 9.4 which is not so fun for now.

    Too bad you didn't wait for Gateway, right? Then you could've updated after backing up the NAND, or even downgraded your console. We all learn from our mistakes though :)

    I'm kinda scared of doing that with the New 3ds XL, should I leave it to 9.4?

    in the illuminati headquar—I have said too much!
    he told me on twitter that it's possible to get regionFOUR working on 9.3-9.6 (just recalculate some offsets and such) but it wasn't needed because of regionThree. Hopefully he will make this stuff will work on those FWs (i'm on 9.5... i regret updating!!)

    EDIT: he talked about custom themes being able to work on 9.7 with this stuff, so maybe that??

    I don't own a Gateway either. I only use it's menu so I can backup my NAND and to downgrade so I can test some stuff. Their customer support is rude, so they have no respect from me.

    Yeah, that's one thing you guys can look for, whoever is on 9.3+. The custom themes was the 1 thing I was most excited about, on the 3DS.

    The very first 3DS XL I bought, I accidentally updated to 9.6, and I haven't really played it since. It's kind of sad, and I realize how much I rely on exploits, because I barely even play with my updated new 3DS XLs. So this news gives me a bit of hope.

    Christ why am I even replying. Gateway = rom loading = requires ARM9/ARM11 kernel access. ninjhax = homebrew loading = only gspwn & cubic ninja, which is still unpatched on 9.7.

    Thats what I was trying to say, which is why I think th stuff about GW is total BS.
