Hello y'all. I just made this post to get some opinions from this lovely community. I had a 3DS XL that was working with Gateway but my little brother accidentally updated it a long time ago (last year, I think), and wasn't able to rehack it until now (thank the lord I backed it up). I'll be sending it to Hundshamer this week. Anyway, I'm getting a Pikachu one and it comes with 4.5.0U which is amazing, so my question is... What's good about the hacking now? I remember when I had a hacked 3DS, CIA's and Smealum weren't even a thing, Sky3DS was announced and it had that stupid 10 game limit thing (which isn't an issue anymore as far as I can tell), and PKHeX working with Gateway was a dream. So what's good about hacking now? What are CIA's and their advantages and such? Smealum? I heard Sky3DS works with all versions, what's the best flashcart right now? Is it still Gateway? What's better, Gateway with 4.5.0 or 9.2.0? Many many many questions on my mind. It'd be great if y'all could answer 'em and I'd love to hear some opinions on the flashcarts and such.
