    To be fair, that Normatt guy is to blame here for implementing a code by barely patching GW's work instead of doing a better job creating his own code like other users here have started to do after the proper tools were released.

    Probably the user who posted the news about the modified launcher should have stated that it was a beta release and that users should proceed with caution and avoid the modified launcher if they didn't want to experience unexpected issues.

    Now the hacker comes here saying that there was checkers in the code that intentionally bricks the console, but days after his patch was released.

    That's very irresponsible and I guess that's the first reason other hackers don't release their work after doing proper testing.

    Okay i don't know but, isn't it illegal to render a console useless like that ? They were talks about how Nintendo could remotely brick 3DS but can't do so because its illegal.

    Document what you say in a table - actual confirmed users - maybe with serial numbers and photograph of bricked device

    Otherwise - usual noise from you in this thread

    You people that buy clone carts may want to think it over next time, the clone firmware contains code that will brick your junk.

    There's no legal action possible since GW is located in China. Why do you think Apple can't sue the millions of iPad/iPhone clones in China?

    Nintendo is a legit company which follows laws and shit, gateway is an underground company they can what they want.

    But its still illegal to brick 3DS like that, can't Nintendo sue them for doing that ? Because they're breaking things that don't belong to them

    Isn't it also illegal to be playing roms of games you don't own?

    That should be a nice lawsuit. Users with bricked consoles after playing illegal copies of games.

    "Hey look guys, these Gateway people are bricking consoles of people playing illegal copies of our games! Nice! Now they'll go buy new consoles which makes us money!"

    I read over at the official gw forums on maxconsole that supposedly gateway can supposedly identify between altered launchers to due competition and sd corruption; if true, for the most part I think gateway users should be safe. It's somewhat believable since it came from Mathieulh, a known developer. Haven't heard much reports of official gateway users bricking either.

    Priceless. "I'm so cheap I can't even pirate properly and now my console is broken - waaahhh!". Get over it.

    That was written here, but there's a lot of bullshit that makes that kind of useful posts hard to find and the OP and the title is not helping as well.

    and just to be clear - Normmatt's modified launcer (for region free) obviously missed something crucial that the Gateway team will do correctly in good time

    I'm not a member of Gateway, I have no idea who they are, I posted in the first few pages my disgust at them, but once I realised what a cheap scam was going on to discredit them I had to speak up - I'm amazed some of their own team don't come on here and calm thimngs down. There you go. It was kind of fun to call out a group of german teenage/novice spammers/hackers - bored now

    The whole thing doesn't have to be corrupt, just a part of it.

    Seriously. When you're not only too cheap to buy games, but also too cheap to buy a clone of a proper flashcart then you deserve it.

    This thread is becoming another war, speculation and conspiracy thread.
    Too many suspicions, analogies, and users calling fake because they don't have proof (proof which you wouldn't understand if you had it, and you would still not be satisfied anyway).

    Thank you to trusted users and developers for checking and reporting this issue.

    Users who don't want to brick their console : don't use 2.0b2 (or 3.1, 3.2)
    Users who think they need proof to trust someone else : do like you want.
