    Are there any tools for windows, Mac, Linux that can be used to crack open 3ds save files for sky3DS plus? No I will not bother spending hours downgrading etc etc.

    PS. Why would some one create a flash cart for pirates? But yet they can't figure out how to crack open save files?

    You can use homebrew to pull the save data like you would for any other physical game.

    Okay after a hour of messing around with ninjhax and figuring out how to switch games while in the home brew menu I am finally able to edit save files with sky3DS plus! :yay3ds:

    Unfortunately the only home brew tool I can find to do that with is called save_manager.

    You have a sky3ds, why not use cubic ninja + homebrew channel and downgrade your 3ds and use CFW

    it seems that not everyone (e.g. me) wants to downgrade and crack 3DS.
    btw i want to ask a question about emunand and sysnand. I don't want to open a new thread about it so i ask you since we met in this thread.
    does emunand consumes more battery than sysnand does? i've seen that one of my friends uses GW card to load emunand (414 method) and since it seems another system running on the original system, it should consumes more battery and other resources, right?

    At the moment there is no way to remove the update nag on emunand on the N3DS. If the update nag can't be permanently removed then downgrading is useless.

    Then why don't you update your emunand to get rid of the nag? Emunand currently supports the latest firmware.

    I posted a thread asking questions about that, but then comes the fact that no one seems to explain how to get the latest emunand for the New 3DS. All the tutorials and guides talk about updating emunand to 9.5 on New 3DS.

    first things first, did you actually manage to install emunand? And did it take 2 gb of space on your sd card? Also, what cfw are you using? reinand, gateway, or rxtools?

    I just finished downgrading to 9.2, but I did not install emunand yet and no I have not installed any cfw yet either.

    easiest way to install emunand is using the gateway files and get into gateway menu via homebrew channel. From gateway menu, you can backup nand and install emunand. After installing emunand, you can then install cfw e.g. rxtool/reinand
