    Just curious if GW hegemony is in peril because of Pasta or if the 2 can coexist..

    Well as Nop90 just said that an emunand is on the way for PASTA, GW should use the big guns because their market will die as fast as it popped.

    Gateway, CFWs are not worth it if you already own a Gateway. However, if I didn't already own one before PastaCFW came out, I might have gone with CFW.

    Gateway.

    Much rather use .3ds. .CIA takes ages to install.

    Both I use my Cubic Ninja cart for Ninjhax and have a CIA of Cubic Ninja installed to my Sysnand for use with pasta so I can boot gateway mode if I want to, Why do this? because I have access to Gateway/HBL/and DS-DSiWare Games from my Sysnand.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Once pasta works without Cubic Ninja carts gateway is semi pointless to use/

    Either, depending on my particular need at the moment. That option doesn't exist however.

    Thanks for your votes guys, keep them coming.
    I added "Both" as an option, didn't envision dudes actually using both methods ^^;

    i'm with gateway, it keeps adding and adding support to everything. but i heard that with pastacfw you can instal gba .cias, thats because pasta cfw uses another way to install cias? or thats because now the gba games have been extracted in the proper way to make them playable?

    Gameboy not Gameboy Advanced the closest thing is the closed source method the KARL team has and the public CitrAGB from shiniyquagsire

    i'm pretty sure i'm talking about gba games since i'm in another forum called *ROM SITE* where a full pack of gba games was post alongside with the note that you need pastacfw to make them run. "These games have been dumped with FunkyCIA2, so they will work if you use Pasta CFW."

    Gateway because I don't have Cubic Ninja, so can't comment on Pasta's use. Reading about Pasta being able to install unsigned CIAs is good for a pokemon player, using SDF without changing cartridges and launching emunand. Everything's in sysnand, that's appealing.

    Dsiware games? not ambassador? but anyway, i would like to try pastaCFW, but i'm already with gateway with emunand, but my 3ds is in 4.2, so can i still run pastacfw just to instal some cias into sysnand?

    GBA games do in fact work with Pasta. Check the Pasta thread yourself.

    Neither? Waiting for Pasta to be installable in emuNand (via something like rxTools, or some other means)

    If you're referring to injected GBA VC games then no, but ambassador games do work.
