    No, you're not safe. If a slight error occurs on loading the exploit, which evidently happens a lot, considering how many times the firmware locks up on booting, then your entire system could be fried!

    That's apparently where we're at right now, but I'm very skeptical on weather or not this is just a big hoax. That being said, you should be fine, on any cartridge. That's not a 100% guarantee though.

    I have a feeling this is only happening to a few ppl on clones and modified launchers or firmware I havent heard of any GW users bricked yet.

    I have been using official gateway software with it and I have been fine. If you are unsure you could start with 1.2 version but the 2.02b has been out for weeks and no one has complained about it. this scare is completely unrelated to gateway users imo

    Thank goodness I hate that that crossed out GATEWAY on the front page it makes them seem like the villian yet there is no evidence of wrong doing yet

    thats not evidence of gateway bricking consoles

    the firmware and launchers could have been modified by anyone at any time

    most of the bricked systems seem to be from cloned cards and modified launchers and firmware that are not offical and are not from gateway

    Too late, it's the only thing being discussed in this part of the forums.

    so there is no known fact that Gateways launcher.bat is unsafe to use?

    I've been using R4i's 3.1 firmware for the past 2 weeks with no issues, so yeah, it seems kinda stupid that this is just now coming up.

    That's because the brick is apparently randomized. May happen, may not happen. If 3.1 is the port of 2.0b though (I'm not sure which version corresponds to what) you run the risk of it suddenly breaking on you at some point.

    I'm right there with you Bminkie, I've ordered one two days ago and now I feel like i've thrown my money through the window. I don't know if when I'll get it I should take the risk to brick my brand new 3DS

    as long as we stick to the offical gateway card and offical firmware and launcher we have nothing to worry about .. I think lol

    I get mines tomoroow also if my 3ds get bricked I can just return my 3ds I just bought the 3ds like 2 days ago lol
