    I read somewhere that the 3DS has a 300 app/game limit. (Not that I'm going to get there but) Does this include EVERYTHING or just 3DS games?

    i.e. is this 3DS games, VC and DSiWare stuff or just some combination?

    From everything I'm reading the answer is no to both.

    You could always buy a second 3DS
    3DS #1: A-M
    3DS #2: N-Z

    :)

    No unless someone does a .3ds rom redirector to sd. Which I am surprised to see that it hasn't come up yet. Apparently this is trivial to do so (IIRC) and it would allow for people to decrypt .sav which is what I'm after.

    I think the testmenu does not have this limit.
