    Hi, I have a homebrew hacked 3DS on 11.6-39U and I stumbled across the sky3ds plus flash cart and I was wondering, should I be patient and wait for free-shop to be available or should I buy a sky3ds plus?

    Thanks!

    Why do you need to wait for free shop? If you are going pirate way just use fbi and that titlekey site

    Edit: when you said homebrew hacked 3ds, do you mean cfw right? or nah?

    You can just get this http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    And then follow https://3ds.guide (ntrboot) to get freeshop now.

    Don't buy a sky3ds. You can get an r4i gold 3ds rts, which will let you play all virtual console games, nds games, and 3ds games.

    No, I first homebrewed (is that a term?) my 3ds on 11.5 which means as of now cfw isn't really possible.

    Yes it is. Buy an r4i gold 3ds rts. That lets you easily get cfw, lets you play nds roms, and is $60 less.

    Ah sorry my miss, just buy r4 gold or any other ntrboot compatible flashcart like others suggest rather than sky3ds+.

    Just making sure, the "R4i GOLD 3DS RTS for New 3DS" works on 11.6 and everything (CFW) will work on 11.6?

    where can I buy one? I tried NDS-Card but it's a PAIN to pay them, you have to email them to ASK what their paypal is and hope and pray that they find out it's you and ship the item. Though I need to make sure the flash cart is real (because hacking bricks counterfeits)

    Nds-card is absolutely a reliable site. You have to email them to get their paypal because paypal bans flashcart sites. However, they are completely legit, and you can trust them.

    Do you have any other sites in mind? since it's coming from Hong Kong it might take 1 1/2 months which is kind of ridiculous.

    There are no other sites with the same reliability, so I can't recommend anything else. It took 3 weeks for me, I'm on the east coast of the US.

    NDS-Card has very good support. Their English is quite funny, but they get the job done, just get a R4 Gold off of them, with Paypal. Also when it comes to shipping just get Hong Kong Registered Air Shipping (With Tracking#), I know it costs an extra 3 bucks, but it is more reliable then the free option, and is way cheaper then UPS and FedEx

    Pay for the express shipping if time is an issue.

    I just purchased an R4i Gold 3DS RTS from NDS-Card, the order was under the name "Jacob" but the payment was under "Anthony" (my dad) but they have the same shipping address, last name, postal code etc. Would the first name change cause any issues?
    Thanks!

    No, it wouldn't, and if it did they would inform you. Nds-card is very good about communicating with customers about payment and shipping.

    should not be an issue . . . and even if it is nds-card will still come through for you (or at least for "anthony") . . . and nds-card has a good track record for shipping errors (i have never read about one that they did not resolve)
