    CFW is better because it's free, no need to shell out any money.

    If you have a Gateway card you can just keep using that, you already spent the money.

    CFW does a few things GW doesn't, like being able to install GBA and DSi games. There's also cheat support with NTR. The latest GW update has cheat support too apparently but they have also issued a warning to DSTwo users which means genuine GW cart users could get caught up in the cross fire. Personally I would just stick with what you've got now assuming you don't need some quick cash from selling it (and who knows if GW will one day crack the 9.6+ keys and you need a GW cart for it).

    If You have a gateway card use both if not get rxTools.

    If you're happy with your gateway, keep using that. But I really reccomend CFW, even though I'm very unexperienced.

    Install CFW, then sell your Gateway.
    You get to get free games while keeping your money :-)

    This has absolutely no relevance to the main thread topic, but you said that Gateway issued a warning to DSTwo users. What did you mean by that?

    Bad advice unless hes desperate for cash he should not do this in the event a New update is needed for something Gateway will have the resources to make the card usable again.

    They can brick DSTWO users if they use the latest 3.5 launcher.dat or brick by downloaded payload. You can discuss this in the linked thread.
