    These boards are really confusing, I'm really only interested in browser based exploits on 9.x because I'm not interested in Flashcard based hacking.

    I've only seen the VC Ram Loader and Pokemon exploits so far.

    Are there any other software exploits I"m not aware of that don't require flash cards on 9.x? Hearing a lot of mixed views on a CFW coming out soon?

    I'm interested in homebrew development, but my experience is only in Software Engineering, and not resverse engineering so most of the stuff I've been reading is way over my head.

    I've compiled a list of them that I have noticed from this forum and a few other places.

    Launchers:
    • Gateway Ultra
    • RegionThree
    • Spider3DStools
    • Pokémon Injector
    • Virtual Console Injector
    • Pong

    Can you edit your post to provide links to them all? Makes it easier for those that read this looking for them :D

    What would launching gateway ultra without a gateway do?

    You can backup your NAND, restore it and downgrade to FW 4.x (it depends of the region, i.e. U region gets 4.2 dg)

    Can this be used to load CFW?
    What exactly can downgrading to 4.2 SysNAND do?

    You could downgrade without a flashcard and install CFW but you'd still need at least a DS flashcard for the later.

    Downgrading lets you use all the existing features that you can do with 4.x exploit and launchers. And yes, you can install a 4.x CFW, but is a very tedious proccess if you ask, I have tried it once and works very well, the only let down is taht is very buggy and only supports .cia installation from games with 6.x FW and lower.

    Gateway's launcher can be used to downgrade to 4.X, which can then install CFW. You need a DS flashcard (or Bangai-O spirits (U)) to install CFW.

    Sysnand 4.2 allows for the DS Profile Exploit, as well as 4.X CFW.

    There's only risk of a brick when you are downgrading. Be sure to have the proper downgrade files. And the risk of bricking is exactly the same as when you update just like an official nintendo update. Be sure not to turn off your console during this process. Yada yada, the usual warnings for updates/downgrades/bricks. 99% of people downgraded fine.

    Not from my understanding. The old 3DS uses spider and the new 3DS uses SKATER.

    Not if you have Bangai-O spirits (U). I'm not really familiar with the details of the Bangai-O spirits exploit though.

    Yes. for the DS profile exploit you either need a DS Flashcart, or the Bangai-O spirits game.

    I was going to try to install CFW using that tutorial linked earlier, but then I saw that my spare SD card is only 2 GB, so I wouldn't have much room for anything substantial on it.
