    This. Normatt file isnt copying anything from gw and even helps the scene getting further. Yet it is treated as any other clone. Modifying in ANY way and it will get bricked. Not the method to use dude.....This will also stop innovation...like the normatt free region hack......

    Using a flashcart to run homebrew and/or avoid region lock may not be within the Terms of Use, but it's certainly not piracy.

    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).

    Because before this thread was started..

    1. i know how easy Gateway is to install-and-use
    2. i seen it in action and loved its features
    3. i was going to buy a nintendo 3ds this month so i hoped this was false rumour..
    and my conclusion is.. using gateway's launcher + install files is safe

    All I ever wanted was the ability to play any region of games on my 3DS, and all I still have is Gateway.
    It's ridiculous.

    You're right about that, but not for the reason you think.

    Excellent analogy, but I have one caveat. The Gas station owner knows the wrong strings might cause your car to explode, but he literally doesn't understand why and he continues to sell those strings to people. The gas station owner is the cloner, and he is a part of the problem too right?

    None. I'm saying 3ds isnt worth all the trouble the hacking scene brings at the moment.

    you need to beg to Big N to open the doors for region free.

    i really dont understand the thinking of big CEO of big companies doing dumb things.

    I believe the term "Piracy" is not the definition of "Copying games and sharing them, or using shared copied games". Every time you're doing something outside the terms of use, you are committing something you are not supposed to, therefore, you're out of their terms, out of their laws. Committing piracy :)

    He indeed is a part of the problem, but he's nonethewiser because he's a gas station owner, not a string manufacturer. :tpi: He literally just gets counterfeit strings and sells them at his counter. ;) I get your point though, t'is all about the money.

    EDIT: Also, holy f*cking s*it, Crass!? Long time, no see? Where the hell have YOU been? :O

    So, bricking consoles because they can't handle any sort of competition? That's going way too far, and I for one will NEVER purchase a product from the GW asshats who thought this was a good idea; whether this was just targeted at clones or not just not justify bricking a console, not everyone is in an area in which they can get a hold of a legit Gateway.

    It seems that using any sort of modified software for the official device could trigger a brick of the console as well, which is them basically saying you are NOT allowed to do what you want with the hardware that you purchased; so, tell me what makes them better than any other company out there trying to lock down their hardware?

    People should flat out boycott Gateway products for now on, unless they want to inevitably be screwed and be without a console because someone may do something with their official GW that the GW Team doesn't want being done. Good job at pissing off a lot of people GWNubs.

    Considering what they did with the Wii U (making the GamePad's region locked on top of your typical region locking), I doubt that's going to happen. Would be nice if they did.

    No, you can buy a new 3DS for that region to play those games. That's the legal thing to do.

    As of this moment, any region-bypassing and "backups-playing" is illegal, making it a black market. If you brick your console, then too bad. It's the risk associated with illegal things.

    Hell, I'm not even sure Nintendo will fix people's console now that this issue is blown out of proportion, and they know what's going on. You're causing your own demise, clone users.

    I think you should just wait til r4i releases their own firmware.
    "Good luck with that".
