In case anyone gets excited by this offer, keep in mind I'm not positive I want to do this yet for multiple reasons, including the one mentioned in the edit at the bottom. I'm mainly posting this to gauge interest for the idea. Also this seems like the kind of thing some forums may prohibit, so I checked the rules and I don't see anything that would prohibit this. If I am mistaken, feel free to lock the thread. I'm thinking about getting one of Gateway's cheaper clones, provided they've fixed the issue that's causing bricks. (This is the main reason I'm not sure if I want to do this yet--I know the original Gateway team added malicious code to try and combat clones, which is why I don't want to support them.) But I've heard (and I'm not surprised) that it doesn't work on the latest firmware. Problem is, I'm on 7.1, as I had to upgrade to play Pokemon X. What I'm asking is if perhaps someone here has a 3DS that they aren't interested in using Gateway on, if you would want to trade yours for mine. I'd pay for all shipping charges, and perhaps a small handling fee we can agree on that you can keep for yourself to make up for the inconvenience. Again, if there isn't a Gateway clone that is confirmed to have all bricking code removed, I have no reason to want a lower firmware at this time, and therefore wouldn't want to trade. But if so, I might want to once I do some more research. Thank you! EDIT: I feel kind of stupid; I just remembered my brother also has one that he might not have used in a while. I asked him and he's not sure if he wants to, but just in case he doesn't, I'll leave this thread up for now.
