Someone here wrote that Gateway is 'just a dumb card', which got me thinking. It actually looks like all the brains and muscle of the GW is in its software nowadays. Rather than doing something actually useful, the GW card works as a DRM dongle for the GW software. Sure, you can load game backups from the GW card, but that's just one of two ways (the other being .CIA installation to internal SD), and not even the superior one. I'm pretty sure there's some stuff (downgrading, NAND backup, ...) you can do with GWs launcher dat without even needing the card now. I can't try, though, because all of their official mirrors are down now, and I haven't found any alternatives. And, just for the protocol (and to prevent flaming): This is not my personal 'let's crack the GW software' thread. I'm just theoretically interested. I'm pretty sure, given what they did earlier they'll brick our precious little 3DS consoles into oblivion if we even so much as thought about that. Also, this is not a 'SKY3DS is superior to GW' thread. GWs software most definitely is superior to that of the SKY3DS, and, without team GWs efforts, the community wouldn't stand where it is now.
