    What I don't get is why the devs will get mad. It's like an inevitable thing. Gateway has it in their most recent launcher now, the leak is out and people have the source, but on the way of having a real custom firmware where I can *hopefully* some day use for sweet homebrew like emulators, on the way there's always things used for piracy. Sure, the piracy part will be shit so that's a good deterrent but now people without as many skills as them can build on their endeavors and write better homebrew now.

    Piracy will happen, especially with Gateway around. It always will happen for any console.

    Pretty much that. I couldn't understand everything but it was interesting to read it from time to time. And yeah, hackers don't hack for piracy, but some members here keep thinking that they should.

    ROM loading is irrelevant, EmuNAND is the same as Virtual NAND on the Wii for me.
    It doesn't brick or modify your real NAND, and makes it possible to easily switch NAND's.

    Also, it could connote of a exploit being released soon.
    Either by GW (Don't count on that).
    Or by a team lurking in the IIRC's, to release their exploit. And in the progress, cripple GW.

    The thing that pisses me off, is when some hackers thing they are somehow automatically better or that their words are more valued than that of the end users, when hackers get arrogant (not all, but I know a few), that pisses me off the most. Or when some twat says the he can do the hack better than anyone else, and then has nothing to show for it. Piracy cannot be prevented or curtailed forever, however, I couldn't care less about it either way, as long as region locking can be removed and have 16-console emulation for games no longer being sold or benefiting any defunct companies, yeah. Old ROM usage doesn't make me feel bad, but newer games that still generate revenue, yeah, I avoid that.



    I ain't holding my breath, and yeah, EmuNAND is used with the original Wii as well, I personally never used it; what turns me off is its limited range it can be used on.

    You know, I wonder if many so people would be bashing GovanifY and going "think about the devs!" if the leak included the latest version of the CFW with support for newer firmwares and DLC and no glitches. I cannot help but wonder if many of these people are more butthurt about the fact that we got a crappy old build and the devs are less likely to release an updated version now, than about GovanifY leaking their work.

    They have stated they had no plans of helping the community. I am sorry but i am glad these jerks are pissed. If one can do something and won't share then it's an useless endeavor.

    Nintendo should sue derreck for enabling more piracy and his team! They are only ones to blame for piracy & I hope nintendo sue them for that.

    you are worrying about finding a 4.5 3ds, you are worrying about your gateway getting lost in the mail...?
    jeez, just be a little more brave, stop worrying about this, honestly maybe find some medication or something to help, i hope this doesn't affect all aspects of your life.
    i can emulate most games on my something like my phone, yet we can only play 3ds games on a 3ds, most people don't care about emulation on 3ds.

    Hell if I know what my beef is, I just have an insatiable thing to see devices hacked I guess. Speaking of phones, I just got a smartphone to replace my dead old flip phone, Android OS, so, I can do a helluva lot more on that than I can on a 3DS anyways. I don't know, to be honest, the excitement I once had in 3DS hacking is all but gone at this point. The smartphone may have been the final nail on the coffin.

    Remember that time the source code was leaked for Half Life and the devs all bitched and bitched and said they quit and then Half Life was never released or complete?

    Oh wait... I don't either...

    the people saying dumb shit like "the devs have no plans to help the community!" have no god damn idea what they're talking about.

    I can tell you that it's an undisputable and a 100% true never ever needed to be questioned rule of the known universe that any developer is better, worth more and has a word much more valued, heck even valuable word than any end user.

    Yeah, I call bullshit, anyone who thinks they're better than another person or is stuck-up/prideful doesn't deserve our respect. Anyways.

    No one, but that doesn't change the fact some people are just arrogant turds with holier-than-thou attitudes, and it's a problem.

    Oh trust me, there are far more unsavory adjectives and insults I could have used to describe them, but why should I put myself down to their level?
