    What? Gateway are doing it, too, and even ships with a DRM dongle in the shape of a flashcart. I don't see the problem except maybe from a legal standpoint.

    Yeah youre paying for a flashcart, not just CFW

    Seems pretty silly to sell a softmod (with potential legal problems). No one will buy it because free CFWs exist

    Yeah, but they have this one key feature, piracy. I think that's a cornered marked in the cfw realm.

    I meant pasta/patched rxtools had the cfw market cornered.

    Edit, nvm, I've rode this tangent far enough. Karl isn't out or have any plans of selling releases anyway.

    Ahhh, well then we agree then.

    What exactly is KARL3ds bringing to the table that will make it worth paying for?

    And whats stopping people from purchasing it once and giving it away to everyone?

    Blackjack and hookers of course. Having sig checks patched out is obviously too mainstream for us.

    well, if someone really wanted to sell a CFW, they could try some long winded DRM, i.e you pay, they send you a program that scrapes unique identifiers from your system , serial number, mac address, device specific identifiers that cant be changed and use them in the DRM to lock each bought copy to the specific console

    but again the whole "buying this cfw" was just pulled out of nowhere, nowhere has any of the dev's said they plan to sell KARL, and with all the other alternatives around, i doubt many people would bit......maybe if Pasta and the hacked Rxtools weren't released....then maybe, but even then it would have to be a sort of very cheap gateway, and i guess with no cart to produce they could indeed to that $20 for feature packed CFW that doesn't rely on people haphazardly hacking up other peoples work and calling it a rom loader......if the karl team really really did plan to go down such a route, im sure there might be people who still consider it if it was cheap enough, especially with the MSET launching capabilities on n3DS meaning they only need CN once to downgrade MSET

    but again, dev's have given no indication they have any such plans so no point really discussing it

    soooooo? you theorize they will be releasing KARL within 1 week for it to be hacked by the end of the week:P.....how about if its never released, how long will it take people to hack it then?

    It certainly won't be as easy as RxTools was to crack, I'll tell you that much.

    We have no such replacing scripts. Also why would we not up our security after RxTools was patched like nothing happened?

    Then again, you'll get infinitely much saltier, so the work may well be worth it.

    You do realize that free doesnt just mean that you dont have to pay for something right? Free as in all the signatures get patched, free as in full control of the OS without all that anti-piracy stuff, free as in full open source.... Jesus Christ :whip::rolleyes:
