Where's Gateway?
Please don't use Gateway.

I use several CFWs myself. I use a private CFW from my CTRNAND and Corbenik as main from my SD card. From there I also use CakesFW and ReiNAND.
I personally lean towards Corbenik since I love the hell out of it, but everyone is just going to say Luma3DS around these parts.

I know what I'm doing. I know that Gateway is the best CFW for what I need. Just asking why it isn't on the list.

Only if you don't need any of it's features. To me, Luma is shit because I don't need it's features. I don't know where I'd be without Gateway's cheat system. You either never used a Gateway or don't know how to properly use it's main feature
I don't need to use a GateWay to know how bad it really is, having to pay like $60 for a flashcart in-order to use a certain proprietary CFW verus getting to use an good open source CFW like Luma and downloading CIA files for free. That and GW literally has no features other than the crappy ar system.

I understand the perks to Gateway CFW and honestly it should actually be part of the list.
But I can't really suggest it to people due to the slow response time from the Gateway Team. There's still no update for 11.3, which is really not ok at this point.
It's not that I hate the cart nor am I against it anymore, but the slow update times is seriously a downer for people who actually pay for their CFW.

If you knew how to use it the card would pay for itself 5 times. And it's only $60 if you buy one that's $60. I've seen people sell them for $15, which is less than a 3DS game. And that "crappy" ar system is a legitimate feature that you're failing to acknowledge the quality of simply to prove your point that Gateway's bad.

I hate it too how there's no updates and 11.3 support, but it isn't a problem to me. I can play online with no issues and use the card normally. The only real reason I use it is because the cheat system is far superior than any alternative (at this time). Who knows, maybe NTR will support .txt loading, live ram editing/poking, cheatlist editing, and a stable searching method without a PC required. If that was the case I'd switch to Luma + NTR.

Personally, I want a gateway for .3DS loading. I actually really don't like .cia files. They take forever to install that just sucks.

I tried pushing so hard for a .3DS loader for CFW, but no one was having it. Everyone is just too busy jerking off to Luma+CIA to actually want anything done in the community.
And it really doesn't help when half the community is resistant to having variety in any shape or form and is hellbent on tearing everyone else down. I mean, look at all the namecalling and what have you. I don't remember seeing that amount of vitriol even as recently as the DS flashcart days.

It's a shame that people who haven't even tried Gateway hate it because of false rumors and bad features that don't need to affect them. For example, the GW A9LH installation is hell. It's a bad feature. What can you do about this? It's real simple: Don't use this feature. Another thing I see people say is that Gateway ripped off of the community. However, it was one of the first CFWs. Luma is a fork of reiNand and no one gets mad. Another complaint is the price. It varies from anywhere between $25 and $90. Of course it'll be "expensive" if you choose to buy it from an expensive place. Wait for a cheaper price to come around or make money from using it. Above I said my Gateway paid for itself 5 times because I know how to make codes using Gateway before NTR was anywhere near it. Codes --> videos --> ads --> money. Also I've seen people mad about the brick code. It only bricks people who deserve it and (correct me if I'm wrong) not a single user was bricked who didn't deserve it. I would be mad too if I developed a CFW and flashcard and then someone else took all the money I could have made from it and used the exact same software I developed. I'm not really sticking up for Gateway because of the lack of 11.3 support but I just wanted some people to know this

I was using cakesFW for the past year but Luma3ds beat them to the language emulator plugin and region free home menu without hard patches to my emunand so i can correctly save my game in the 3 JP sega 3d classics collections.

Otherwise I'd probably still be on cakesFW tbh.
