    Why does GW now require you to have the red card in order to boot into 8.x+ emunand classic mode?

    It was a mistake to allow ANY emunand without Gateway card in the first place.

    On 2.4+ yes, but 8.1 emunand works without gateway on 2.3b.

    If you don't <ever> need a gateway for emunand then end of business. Hello softmod. Bye Bye dongle.

    They don't let you boot into emuNAND without the red card because if you could, what's to stop you using it to install devemenu and then just giving your card to someone else to do the same?
    If you didn't need the card to boot emuNAND, Gateway wouldn't sell any more units.

    No, MT also requires their own card in the system to run newer emuNANDs.

    because you will be able to install dev menu in 4.X CFW then mode it back to regular emunand and update to play the CIA that needs 8.X without the need for gateway at all
