What makes the Gateway cart any different then the R4i gold deluxe in terms of what software you can install on it? It seems to be clear that you cant simply buy a R4i and just toss gateway on it, else everyone would buy the cheaper r4i, but why is it you cant do this? For that matter, all the clones that came out/will come out? I'm considering picking up a gateway atm, but I've been wondering what the physical difference is between the two. I'm afraid I'll pickup the gateway and in a few months the hardware you use wont matter as someone will have a device that can run anyone's software (hopefully not cuz then devs wont work on it anymore...) I joined the ps3 jailbreaking club when it first started and I remember almost getting screwed on buying a ps3key type device, then weeks later you could do it with anything, a calculator or a cheap 20$ board. The software to do the hack was usable on any device that could run the code, not simply one device coded by some group.
