Latest GW update supports what?
A free Homebrew app called GW Time Machine app and A9LH.
Today we are proud to announce the (limited) release of 2 new highly anticipated Gateway updates that will please all current and future Gateway users but also the whole 3DS community.
First the GateWay TimeMachine app can be launched via the homebrew channel therefore valid up to 10.7 or any future homebrew advancements. It is a free unrestricted tool that will have user verified region and device type files that greatly simplifies the a9 install process.
Next the Gateway A9LH Installer is a highly integrated GW menu app, that auto detects system and state of install, considerably simplifying the install procedure especially for the N3DS.
Once the A9LH Installer is complete the console will now boot automatically straight into GW menu within a few seconds after powerup.
They are currently in the hands of a few selected beta-testers. Please check your email today and later in the week if we contacted you for that matter (beta testing being in several steps, you might be contacted later this week).
