    They said that O3DS & 2DS haven't this new encryption, so why they don't release update for those devices?

    They made n3DS owners wait for some time, so now to be just, they make o3DS owners wait.

    Yeah it seems legit ^^
    But if they made n3DS users wait it's because the exploit wasn't "ready" in same time that o3DS, in the main case, o3DS exploit should be ready

    I think they just want their new updates to be working on both systems from now on.

    Mostly this, imo, because I already see gbatemp being spammed with "I DOWNLOADED NEW LAUNCHER.DAT BUT EMUNAND 9.6 DOESN'T WORK!!".

    and yes... you want all systems to be homogenous going forward. When you support multiple hardware in one release *cough*AKAIO*cough* you have to keep them in sync or else you get MORE complaints about "why it work on THIS but not THIS it same software!!!"

    So take a break and watch cartoons.

    And always backu p your emunand before upgrading it so you can inject it back in case new version not work.

    GW are a bunch of useless ducks. KARL has done half their lifetime progress in a month. It's already clear they have no passion save for the money for their cheap plastic DRM

    If gateway didn't release exploits most of KARL features wouldn't even exists because most of the hackers in the scene keep everything for themselves. Wake up

    It's because they start feeling responsible for their actions. If you enable piracy for everyone you're indirectly cutting into Nintendo's losses.
    They often forget that Nintendo should be responsible for not having these issues to begin with. It would be a different story if Nintendo allowed homebrew applications but guess what.. they patch all efforts leading to code execution but don't give a shit about Sky3DS which is the biggest threat at the moment. Hackers have lost their balls for the last generation by limiting features on purpose. Fun fact: without piracy, homebrew wouldn't be that popular to begin with. They buy the system because they want to play games. Homebrew is just a bonus and very few people buy a console/handheld just for homebrew.

    Doesn't rxTools use the same emuNAND format as Gateway? You can just use that for now, it works great. You'll just need to put the rxTools .dat launcher on the SD and that's it.

    Just saying that without gateway all you would have was ninjhax and sky3ds. Let's face that.

    For many, homebrew was the sole reason to own the original Xbox. The interest in homebrew is also what made Gamepark\Dingoo machines so popular.
