    I'm waiting to see whether smealum's merry go round would actually end or if he's just going to keep this exploit till version 99.x so that his "exploit" won't be wasted.

    If this does get released, I'll have to figure out how to go from 2.1.0-4U to 8.0

    Thiis is amazing, good thing Nintendo does not force you to update to play Pokemon online because then I would have had to updated my 3ds.

    Or follow advice to go to 4.x and stay there. This is already admittedly NOT a kernel access exploit. Iirc it should run on other firmware potentially even including 2.x

    No offense but you kinda sounds like the typical pissed off customer when they didn't get their package in time.
    May I remind you that he didn't even promise a release date?

    Some offense but you kinda are targeting me aren't you? Might I remind you to reread my post? I'm not annoyed that he isn't releasing it now. I said I've decided to wait it out and see if he actually release anything since he last said he was holding off a release because of fears of burning the exploit prematurely.

    Geez. Some people are so blinded.

    I kinda see why people are starting to get upset, with posts like
    "To release or not to release."
    Talking about the fact that it can be only used to homebrew is interesting and it would be really nice to see this exploit released already so 3DS homebrews can be started.

    No. You aren't the first one and definitely not the only one.
    The main reason was because he had not found an entrance in 7.x yet.

    You should be nicer and stop targeting people without just cause then. It's a start that you've admitted.

    Yes. He didn't release it on 7.x so that it will be unlikely to be patched in 8.x. This is cyclical logic at work.

    But it probably worked. That means he should release it soon.

    I'd be glad with a GBA emulator that can use the whole top screen. Being suck at a DS screen size is a bit annoying.

    The "exploit" prob won't do anything interesting so i don't think i will miss out on much just updated to v8 couple of days ago.

    Actually no one has the right to be pissed off since the 3DS did not come bundled or come with the promise of a third party exploit. Nintendo sold you the console and that's it. All these exploits are just extras that individuals came up with to do their own thing. No one has to release anything, they are not obligated to. I kinda hope they never release anything because although everyone claims "homebrew", they actually mean "piracy".

    When gateway came out what did everyone expect, dumping your own roms to play.......No. it was untill later when it became available to do so and that means almost every gateway owner on this forum has download a 3ds game through piracy, so did you hope that the gateway flash cart was never released because that's what most flash carts. do.

    smealum Why release at all? It will be an exercise in futility:

    1. The next Nintendo update will kill this exploit.
    2. Not many 3ds homebrew exists in the first place, which means many will not see much value in homebrew and update to the next firmware which will render it unable to run homebrew.
    3. Not many developers have interest as there exist many other more homebrew friendly platforms (Android, PC, ...). Those that do probably already have a Gateway flashcard.
    4. The exploit could be used by Gateway team to find a new entry/kernel hole into 7.x and 8.x -- increasing their market and thus piracy.
    5. Many will complain about the exploit being severely limited

    Do explain where the positive news is of this in the long run?

    If he makes this public how likely is it a "backup" launcher or homebrew channel will come out of this? Is it just going to be another 4.5 exploit where nothing really happens except exclusively piracy? Or do we just not know enough yet?
