    Hello,

    I wanted to do a survey of current and future flashcarts owners. This is for peer interest and to see what kind of values we get within the hacking community. If you want to share your response and the reason behind it feel free to post it!

    For me, I currently have a regular 3ds using gateway but I bought the Japanese N3DS and updated to 9.2 just in time and now patiently waiting for gateway's update. But to be honest, should of ordered the Australian version for English, therefore I could order the sky3DS while I wait for gateway's SOON release.

    Thanks!

    I currently own a gateway with 9.x but am debating on Sky3ds to tide me over.

    I'm getting a Gateway 3DS, but I'm also getting a R5SDHC, which is a clone of the red button Sky3DS.

    I ordered the R5SDHC the day before the blue button Sky3DS was announced, so that's a bit annoying. Still, I'm impatient, and I don't want to be waiting for either the new Sky3DS or the Gateway update.

    Missing the option, 'want a gateway but support for 9.x is taking to long so going for Sky3DS soon'

    #6 or #7, and then post your reason :)
    Tried to touch base on everyone, but the survey would be too long.

    kinda #3.
    I have a 4.5 3DS and a Gateway. I'm waiting for the USA/EUR N3DS release so I can get one and possibly another Gateway.

    I have a 4.5 XL and a Gateway. As of yet, I see no reason to upgrade. That Xenoblade port looks nice, but I've already played Xenoblade.

    I don't see my option: I currently have a 4.5 3DS already but I am waiting support for my 9.0-9.2 3DS. (Note, it's not a N3DS I'm waiting for, but a 3DS!)

    waiting for shops to stock the blue button sky3ds and to see what gateway does.

    if gateway could offer a second update that basically turns their card into a sky3ds for those that dont have a compatible firmware that would make the choice easier. not sure if it would be possible though if sky3ds does truly emulate real hardware.

    I'm going for a blue-button Sky3DS, Gateway takes too fucking long to release anything beyond a teaser video with those sexy hands.

    Between options 2 and 3 I decided to vote 3, I don't own a n3ds yet but would kinda like one at some point.

    I have a 4.5 3ds, but would prefer to use the Gateway on my 2DS. I do have NinjaHax on the 2DS.

    gateway for sure! since it gives the easiest and most complete options. i mean i don't even wanna use it for the piracy but the emulators that's something. that being said i wish they built a good sdk so we can use sound like normal, use touchscreen the way it's supposed to work... i wanna play my scumm games!
    for the many 3dses, i just use one 3ds with backup for my own fw. and so one console is enough for me. i do understand the hackers that use all different models to check the exploit/hack is good enough for the rest of the world.
