    On IRC JDBye said something and then someone else said something else I can't read very well but that could be why it's been so lonnnnnnnnng since Gateway updated I mean it's like not even a few months but it hurts me to think it bad!

    If that was true, they probably would have shut down their website too.

    blah blah, it's still just a rumor. Gateway just released an update about a month ago. I don't think that a month without an update is worth it to start rumors, they've gone longer than that without an update. Besides, they just had one of those Chinese holidays so they're probably still hungover.

    Yep,
    The record the way I figure is 48 days, between 2.3b and 2.4b
    So nothing to worry about until after 03/28/2015 (02/03/2015 + 48 Days)

    Code:
          Release Name                    Date      Time    Elapsed Days
    GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.3b        08/29/2014  06:40 PM    0
    GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.4b        10/16/2014  08:54 PM    48
    GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.5         10/30/2014  11:21 AM    14
    GATEWAY PUBLIC RELEASE 2.6         11/05/2014  04:21 PM    6

    You go back further than 8/2014 and the updates are more spread out.

    If gateway was shut down, then why is their website still up? Also, wouldn't nintendo go after a flashcart that works on the latest fw?(sky3ds or qq3ds)

    Pretty sure there would be a legal trail of some sort. Something better than just I heard from some guy somewhere on the Internet kinda thing.

    People say that Gateway never releases updates quickly, but what Gateway does is release an update only after Nintendo releases an update of their own so that emunand will work. Gateway always releases a new update once a new Nintendo update is out. Gateway works perfectly right now and there's no need for an update to get it working on any regular 3DS.
    It's the NEW 3DS support that's taking a really long time that everyone's upset about and thinks Sky is "Quick" with updates. As I said before, Gateway releases updates when necessary, when Nintendo updates. We haven't seen another Nintendo update that breaks emunand in so long, so Gateway has nothing to release right now. It does not mean that they're slow or not supportive.

    I personally don't believe they're down. They're working on N3DS support but taking their time. It should be out at least next month or the end of this month as an estimate.

    No, sorry people they're just collecting IPs for potential future lawsuits... you know identifying plaintiffs and their activities...

    you don't know anything about legal stuff do you... the plaintiff is the person/corperation doing the suing the defense is the person/corperation being sued. And no gateway is not being shut down, if they were their site would be down.

    I heard a rumor that Nintendo will allow their systems to run unsigned code and homebrew and roms in a future update. Is this true?! It's on the internet. It has to be true, right.

    I tried it, dipped my iphone 5s inside a glass of water and came out as an iphone 6 plus. You gotta download the holy water app though, it only cost 600$.
