    Title says it, yeah I did steal a gateway from a store... The brazillian police probably won't care, I got it off from what we call "popular shop" (a kind of place mostly for crappy clones or pirating devices)

    The questions I have are, is it safe to get the roms of the games I own? I mean nintendo won't try to bite my beloved dongle right? Plus is 2.0b1 the latest version safe from bricking code? Can i get my saves from the games I already own?

    You're stealing physical objects to allow you to steal games..?

    I'm just going to pretend the first paragraph doesn't exist.

    As far as your questions go, some countries have varying laws. The idea of backing up games you already own is valid in some countries and not valid in others. I don't know Brazilian law off the top of my head. As far as 2.0b1, there are reports of bricks (not really confirmed though) but from what I have seen, it's not as bad as 2.0b2. IF you're absolutely paranoid go to 1.2.

    As your solutions to life's problems seem to revolve around theft of some kind why not simply steal some trousers with bigger pockets?

    Stealing flashcards is a gateway to more serious crimes :teach:

    You better check it is a 'real' Gateway then, rather than a relabeled clone. Wouldn't want to brick your console would you? Or I guess you could just steal another if needed. In fact, why not steal 20 or 30 and sell them on ebay?

    You should steal a 3 DS to go with it, then steal a house to live in to play your stolen gateway on your stolen 3DS, I really don't see why you even said that, you look like a right nob, wouldn't surprise me if it turns out the Chinese mafia run that shop and you get a visit during the night lol, you obviously have no sense so you probably left your real name and address in the store

    The problem is not that you stole the flashcard, the real problem is that you feel proud enough about it to announce your naughty act on the internet.

    If you are to do something illegal, might as well stick into the illegality from one end to the other.
    Although you may be increasing your chances of getting caught.

    I don't know in brazil, but up north, if you consider the kind of charges that can be laid on you for the theft of merchandise <100$ VS. charges for illegal use of copyrighted material, it's kind of ridiculous.

    More realistically, if you steal something from a bootleg shop, you won't have problem with cops, though you may have some problems with some unfriendly characters.

    Not that I'm trying to justify anything, but, how is stealing an already illegal device illegal or immoral? :unsure: Isn't the device meant for playing 3DS "backups" anyway?

    Isn't stealing the Gateway the same as pirating games?

    'Cause yeah, pirates and thieves are not the same.

    Well, I hope for a karmatic ending: with the GetAway screwing over their customers and other flashcard customers alike, I hope you'll be one of the casualties. (stealing the games alone is worth this retribution)
    This way your "investment" will pay off.

    Filthy Thief.
