    I guess the update isn't out yet, but there's definitive proof that there IS a working 9.0 update on the way?

    Does it use the same cart that's out currently or are they releasing new hardware for this?

    Yes. It's confirmed.
    And yes it still uses the same hardware.

    I wonder if that means the new exploit will mean we don't have to do the whole "ds profile" routine

    Nop in the video it is still that. But hey then we can see everytime the 3ds game logo.
    And besides it is worth very much.

    Really? I don't remember seeing the 9.2 exploit showing them going into the ds profile part

    There's no mention of the DS Profile Exploit in the video. It's bogus.

    Oh nvm I though it went in the ds profile.
    So indeed we don't need to do that anymore.

    Are you saying the video released by gateway to show off 9.2 compatibility on a N3DS is bogus?

    No, friend. It's legit.

    What's bogus is saying that in the video, red-nail lady acessed the DS Profile exploit.

    She might have, she might not have. Considering this is a new type of exploit (just a guess since the leap is from 4.1-4.5 FW to 9.0-9.2)
    Hopefully the ds profile is no longer needed, although it's probably worth it to use the gateway

    Utilizing the DS Profile Exploit was shut down long ago due to a Firmware patch by Nintendo.

    As for how she did it.. Well.. Nobody really knows .. What is assumed is that she already had to have that exploit set up before doing said video. That much is for certain.

    The rest, is a showcase of features.

    Ah, so that's why people started talking about the mii channel, as the 3ds seemed to default back to it

    The whole Mii Channel is speculated to be due to a touch from her hand on the ZR button, which moves three spaces right. In this case, from the 3DS Card slot to the Mii Maker. People with N3DS's already proved this.

    So the possibility of it being the Mii Maker is SUPER slim.

    Wow, that was a lot of conversation.

    So what's the best place to buy a Gateway from? I'm naturally leery of most retailers who sell that kinda thing.

    Check out one of their supported resellers. This is the best way to avoid fakes.

    Also, I speculate that this exploit is due to all the additions to the 3DS main menu such as themes, and a complete shuffle of all the 3DS toolbar apps. It was the biggest change since 4.x right? More room for failure.
