So I recently received my Japanese N3DS at firmware 8.1, and I'd like to avoid bricking it, or making it useless. I'm not sure what I can currently do to get my Gateway card to run, as I can't open the internet browser to load Launcher.dat without getting a message that I assume says I need to update to use the internet, as it links back to the eShop. (which I can't get on without updating anyway) And I can't use my US copy of Cubic Ninja to load the new Gateway method, as reigon locking prevents it. So I'm wondering if there's anything I can do right now regarding homebrew or gateway? Or am I pretty much screwed until a new method comes out.
