    i have a few questions about this card one of these is is there anyway to remove the gateway from the card i personally don't care about it and am worried about it bricking my system or the card its self secondly is the card stable i heard someone say his broke on the second use thirdly this is a stupid question but can i get to home-brew things without the gateway mode of the card? im new to 3ds homebrew and flashcards for that matter i just liked the ds two for its emulator ability's and i was looking to use the fbi thing to get back a few games that were lost when my last 3ds was well lost thank you in advance

    You wont even notice a difference between the dstwo+ and the original dstwo unless your using gateways files

    You should be using custom firmware for 3ds games though.

    no i don't own a ds two and since they don't sell them anymore im going to have to buy a dstwo+ i was wondering if there were problems with build quality and if it would randomly brick things if i leave the 3ds mode off

    oh and i don't really plan on using gateway at all maby a little homebrew so the gateway mode in this card is pretty much useless to me to much work and to much risk

    haha good question actually! :D
    I think you would have to copy the gateway files to your sd to start it, just dont copy them to your sd and you should be fine!

    Would the gateway mode (i.e. 3ds roms) of the DSTWO+ work on a n3ds? If so, how can I make it work with a9lh+luma?

    Gateway firmware 3.5 and above bricks ANY console that isn't using Gateway's genuine flashcart. You can safely use Gateway 3.4.1 with a DSTWO+, thou.

    I don´t know if the latest DS2+ launcher works with latest gateway software...
    To make it work you would have to use the gateway arm9loaderhax file.

    But if you use 3.4.1 its safe.

    So I guess the question would be, would gateway a9lh.bin work with 3.4.1?

    It should, it's just a forwarder; but that version doesn't support 11.0 or so I heard

    Impossible, even if you had a real GW. I've bolded the important part in the quote.

    ok so as long as my sd card in the supercard doesn't have gateway on it im fine right? does it come bundled with whatever i download for the card originally or am i completely safe oh and can i do 3ds homebrew without the gateway mode or do i have to buy cubic ninja or freaky forums for that

    sorry im just kind of worried also someone said his broke after 2 uses so is build quality incredibly low or did he just get unlucky

    Yes just dont copy any gateway files to your dstwo.
    For 3DS homebrew you would have to get an entrypoint game, unless browserhax is available for your firmware.
