    Actually they can't disable the clone cards since their FPGA and thus ASIC cannot be overwritten nor updated

    Person doesnt like WAD 1(normatt file) being used so the WAD 2 he creates (gw firmware) bricks console.

    So no Normatt file isnt the one bricking consoles because that wasnt intended at all. GW on the other have the intention to brick if modified.

    Let's see, 10 hours from now:

    - if this thread is still alive
    - if any evidence for the claim in the title is provided
    - if more people will have posted about Neimod being anti-piracy (ha!)

    i bet if i waschanges hex code in anything homebrew to Wii it would probably cause a brick.. maybe normatt file wasn't well executed?

    The main questions have been answered in a way that makes sense, so I only expect more new people coming in, more conspiracies and possibly a proof of what we already pretty much know.

    No it's not that. Geez. You should probably learn how to read properly and thoroughly. Normatt's modified launcher won't do any bricking if the bricking code is not there in the first place. Claims so far have stated that there is indeed a code in the latest gw firmware that cause bricking (The code is not there in previous firmwares if I'm not mistaken).

    I wonder if Gateway would have put this brick code in the launcher if there were no clones on the market? Can't say the r4i team didn't play a part in this sick demented fiasco. I'm not saying it's right, but there aint nothing wrong with protecting your investment. Now, as a gateway owner, I gotta deal with this shit. Screw the clone carts.

    The gateway firmware installer hasn't been modified since 9/9/13, is that the latest gateway firmware you are referring to. Maybe you are referring of the launcher.

    which thread are you reading, friend?

    there has been only speculation, endless repeating of hearsay from people whose motives we cannot necessarily take for granted.

    we think so, and the ... its so stupid .. 22pages peopel going nuts.. and its one or afew persons... using normatt file who probably wasnt done correctly, causing a brick.. Lesson to everyone who has Gateway car(s) , use gateways launcher.bat - ...

    Installing gateway is - copy file1(gateway installer) to microSD - install - copy file2(launcher.bat to SD . Activate gateway by clicking Nintendo Profile .

    Thats all you do. - So use Gateways Launcher.. not some user-made stuff.. :P

    Like someone said, part of the blame is on the clones for not testing their release, as well as not detecting the kill switch code in GW launcher.

    Please boycott GW, and support the clones, who love you so much they want you to have the experience of being guinea pigs first hand! /s

    I'm not doing chit-chat.

    I'm making a very simple technical request - that the people who claim Gateway are reprogramming the eMMC controller on 3DS's, so as to make the console unrecoverable even by a NAND reflash, post the address offset to the code which writes to the eMMC controller registers.

    OK

    Let's put it in different categories to make the situation more clear to those who defend randomly putting Bricking code in your binaries.

    Imagine that you've bought a BMW for a whole lot of your hard-earned cash. You sit down in your BMW, but something's missing... so you drive to the nearest gas station and buy a small ornament, for example a nice-smelling little tree. You really like it, but it doesn't have good string to hang it with - the original one is kinda flimsy... so you add your own string and hang it on the rearview mirror - it fills your car (let me stress this one more time - your privately-owned, personal, very expensive car) with wonderful scents of the forest... AND THEN YOUR CAR EXPLODES! KA-BLAM! YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO STICK A THIRD-PARTY THREAD THROUGH THE TREE ORNAMENT, F*CK YOUR BMW! ;O;

    This is what happened. In this story, your 3DS'es are the BMW's, the tree ornament is the flashcart and the Launcher is the thread. :)

    I doubt most of them have interesting lives other than hacking handhelds and consoles and sitting on IRC all day, no offense ;-) not that this is in any way relevant to the discussion.

    the point is: if you're gonna throw around very serious allegations, from a position of authority, back that shit up. how hard would it have been to provide evidence, if they had it?

    No i begged/asked people in this thread to provide info that Gateway is harmful..

    1. Picture of bricked 3DS using Gateway card(s)
    2. Info that Gateway bricked their console, not user-created stuff
    3. Info that their 3DS has been bricked, we only heard 1-5 people say it has happened to them.

    Edit: This thread attacks the only DEVS of HOMEBREW 3DS . You are damaging yourself by going nuts on people as Gateway without sustainable evidence.
