I know that Shadowtrance and Ivan Garcia already made an application, but I started this one before I saw they released their so I wanted to publish it anyway

The main problem of the new Gateway exploit is that you can't use it offline, because you need to load go.gateway-3ds.com. With this application, you can host your own server so you can use if offline. Just start the application, flash the QR Code and... you're done. You don't even need to choose a 3DS system version or touch things.

Main features
  • Host your own Gateway exploit server so you can still play your games offline
  • Works through WiFi Tethering (enabled by default) or Local network
  • You don't want the application to alter the system hotspot ? No problem, you can disable it
  • Auto start the server and hotspot at application startup (enabled by default)
  • Auto close the application when the exploit has been launched (disabled by default)
  • Automatically detects which system you have and provides the right exploit without any action from your side
  • Creates a QR Code so that you can open the URL very quickly on the console
  • Possibility to change the exploit file name (default : Launcher.dat)
  • It's lightweight : less than 500kb!
  • There is a widget so you can launch the app very quickly
  • Works on all Android versions, from 2.x to 5.x
  • The application warns you when an update is available and download it for you
How to use the application ?
  1. Maybe disable your mobile data ; you don't want your 3DS to be able to connect to the Internet
  2. Launch the application
  3. On the 3DS, just connect to the hotspot and scan the QR Code
  4. Once the Gateway launcher is opened, you can stop the server
Can I see some screenshots ?

Sure, there you are :

I appreciate the auto exploit selection and lack of ads.

Some issues:
The server resets when you rotate the device. Add android:configChanges="keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize" in your AndroidManifest.xml under whatever your main activity is.
Also, put the main activity's layout in a scrollview, and have the picture appear below the "Navigate to" text instead of on top of it (the picture is way too small in landscape mode for some reason as well)/

What we need is an app that sets up a hotspot so the Android device can serve exploit files directly to the 3ds. This would render a 3rd device (ie router) unnecessary making the GW Ultra truly portable.

There's hope for a Xenosaga port.

Suggestions:
  • Automatically turning off 3G and on tethering when you "START THE SERVER",
  • Automatically setting tethering configuration to emulate a Nintendo Hotspot,
  • Doing all of this in an unrooted phone,
  • Yeah, of course.

It might not be that hard to program, honestly. Although, I would expect a few days of bug fixing.

I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

i'm not actually going to do it. I do enough programming at work, I try to spend the 4 or 5 hours i get at home stuffing media into my eyes.

I am so glad that someone made another one, because the other one didn't work for me on my phone.
Now I simply have no reason to downgrade on 4.5 for my zelda XL.

Plus I do own a 4.5 3DS, but now I'll be able to use gateway if I want, just for the sake of homebrew or ROMS. CIAs will go on my other 3DS as usual.

Million thanks friend, XD

It's been a long time since I haven't made an application I forgot some things like the onPause when the screen rotates x)

I will fix all this, however I don't think it's possible to create a hotspot from the application without being rooted, i will check this out.

Good to see another option out there :)

But you may want to amend the tiny note at the top. I didn't make the other one [user]Ivan Garcia[/user] did, I just helped with testing and the original icon.

And i was the messenger to put out the release thread as Ivan was going to sleep. :)

As I have done on my app... you don't need root... but you need to know how to cheat android to make it think that the person has pressed the button to enable it :)

Any Windows laptop solution? Not everybody has an Android phone :P

I know that I could just keep trying but I don't have the time to fuck around especially since it would be for learning purposes. I do have access to WiFi everywhere.

You could install uWamp or Wampserver to host the HTML file(s), and use a third party software to create the wifi hotspot

Edit : since the application is made in java I could create a standalone version for computers, what do you think ?
