    I have a few more dumb questions about CFW, as I THINK my current SD Card will have enough space. And yes, I will follow 3ds.guide

    Is an SD Card with 200,000 Blocks large enough to set up CFW?
    Will CFW prevent access to the eShop or prevent microtransactions?
    Is there any sort of compatibility list for the Ultimate GBA VC Injector?
    Will any games be affected by CFW?
    Will I be banned from Nintendo Network if I use CFW?

    1) How much is 200k blocks? You can install CFW on as low as 2GB I believe, though if you actually want to play games you will need at least an 16GB card. Just get yourself a 16GB card .. they're cheap.
    2) No and no. Why would you buy things though .. ;)
    3) Dunno
    4) No
    5) No. You can play games online as if they were legit games as long as the game is not a custom rom (edited in some way, like undubs of games etc.). Do NOT go online with a custom rom. I make sure to turn off my Wifi just in case whenever I play FE Fates undub.

    Ok.
    The SD card that originally came with the system will work fine. Even a 2gig will work.
    The reason people wants bigger sizes is for games. I am using a 128gig micro in my n3dsxl
    I just had to format it to fat32

    As long as your sd card is over 2 gb you are good. But it also depends on the amount of gb it has left. To see how much you have left, go to your sd card, right click, and go to properties.


    No.

    Pretty sure all games work on it. Don't quote me on this though, I've never used it before

    That is only if you don't sysnand backup. If you read every step of https://3ds.guide, and make sure you sysnand backup, you will be good. Make sure you are not watching a video as well, those are unpreferred. It's recommended you use one as a secondary source instead.

    Yes, more than large enough.
    No, as long as you're updated to the latest firmware, which you can do safely once you have A9LH installed.
    All games should be compatible, it is running on native hardware after all. Some games will need SRAM patching, you can do that with GBATA.
    No, no games will be affected.
    Yes, you can be banned but only if you play games online ahead of their release.

    "custom games" = ???

    If an edit of the Pokemon such as the Pokemon Sun edit "Rising Sun" counts as a custom game, and you download that to play it, you've effectively pirated Pokemon Sun.

    Okay well whatever lets you sleep at night.

    We both know you'll end up downloading a game or two from freeShop as a "test" ;)

    Also above .. Playing emulated games on your 3DS is no different than downloading a GBA game and playing it on a GBA. You're still downloading the game.

    For clarification: 200,000 blocks is around 20GB.

    The moment you get a GBA rom, you have became a pirate.
