    I currently own a New 3DS firmware version 9.5.0,

    should I sell the card and move on or have faith in Gateway.

    To answer title question: 11
    To answer body question: Up to whether you're up for the Gatewait game or not, rather a personal decision.

    Grab a Sky3DS and wait for GW to find a new exploit.

    my2cents : over 9000 screwed.
    the fact n3ds tend to be packed with >9.2 these days might hurry them a bit but... I wouldn't count on it any time soon.

    Thanks for all the quick responses guys!

    The lack of faith in an update disturbed me and I just needed some guidance. :gba:

    I'm currently in the same boat as I got a N3DS XL from amazon and it was on 9.4 which I'm now selling, luckily I hunted eBay and found a Majoras Mask one which is on 9.2. just slam eBay and ask people to check before buying :D good luck

    I have no fucking idea.
    AFAIK there is no chance of GW working on sysNAND 9.5 for a good while, so I'd get a Sky if you still want to pirate.

    If it was on 9.4. I would have given you a 5 out of 10 on the screw o meter because 9.4 didn't patch the arm9 firmlaunchhax exploit yet. You'd just have to find a new kernel exploit for Arm11. But 9.5 patched that Arm9 exploit as well. So I'd give you a 10/10. Gateway isn't going to support it for at least another year or more. That's assuming they ever do. :P

    On a scale of 1 to "Running self diagnostic on Gateway 2.0b2 launcher", you're definitely running self diagnostic....

    Sky3ds wouldnt have a restore NAND feature would it? Would it ever be capable of such a thing?
    Asking because i did a nand backup on 9.2, then accidently upgraded to 9.6, and i want to know what my options are

    Nope, Sky will never support that due to being completely different to GW, Sky emulates a cart 1:1, Gateway uses exploits to load

    Gateway soon™ pretty much means it can be announced within the next 10 minutes to 10 years. Gateway are ambiguous when it comes to release dates. Its always 'soon' with them.
