    So as some of you know KARL3DS will be coming out soonand i'm very confident there will be either a leak or someone will RE the work within a week and make a backup loader (if no one releases separate work before this).

    So my question is should I sell it for roughly 100+ local while its still worth something or keep it while we wait to find out what gateways "special feature" is?

    Or do you think the price will hold while people are still in the dark during KARL's release?

    -This is not a piracy discussion keep that BS - Here

    Selling your Gateway card in the hopes of KARL being leaked and reverse engineered and be modified to allow for backup loading to the same degree like Gateway is a stretch.
    You'd be waiting for an indefinite amount of time.

    Gateway provides continuous support to provide us with 100% game compatibility as fast as possible. If this KARL thing is leaked, then there's probably no devs that can or will want to provide this kind of support.

    Besides, you don't even know how user friendly this KARL method will be.

    I'd say stick with your Gateway card.

    Don't be too confident, there could have been a backup loader made the second the MSET exploit went public. Nope. Nothing. Even now, just a crummy CFW. So there's that.

    And also, you'd need Cubic Ninja anyway for KARL right? I've seen that game priced much higher than a GW cart.

    Doesn't seem like you've thought this through so I'll give you some free advice and say don't sell.

    Edit: Now I'm too confused, you don't hope for a leak? You don't need BOTH GW and KARL surely, why would you? You can do everything on a GW. Including Ninjhax for .3dsx stuff.

    I have 4 copies of cn atm also if you've read each page there's an underlying tone in some of the devs words (name gonna name anyone) also theres govanify's work that was written off almost immediately but im sure we are gonna see something even if its based off of stolen work and buggy as all hell.

    I saw that, a screen grab of gov's repo. I'm not gonna hold my breath, it'd be cool though.

    Anyhow, 4 copies of cn? I'd say sell those instead. Seriously. At least you could sell 3 of them.

    to your edit its simply about money if I can sell it for 100+ and get the same type of product for free (using one of my cn carts) id like too do so while I can.

    i'm keeping mine. my guess is either two things are going to happen

    1) the whole KARL thing paves the way to some CFW/loader/etc that would probably support loading off the gateway card
    2) gateway themselves come out with an implementation

    i already ordered a copy of CN off ebay for $17 for my 9.0 N3DS so I'm fine with either. if it turns out that i really don't need the gateway card i'll think about selling it but before then i wouldn't. imagine selling the card and the day later gateway 4 drops?

    Why sell? And why are you asking that question in the first place? You seem to have no problem holding on to useless items, owning four copies of Cubic Ninja. You make no sense, dude.

    if KARL3DS or a modded version of KARL3DS comes out the value of cubic ninja will skyrocket again since it would be needed for either.

    theres only 70k copies of cubic ninja and 50 million 3DS's do the math + 100$ for my (probably soon) useless gateway card wouldn't hurt.
