I have the new 3DS XL with the c stick that has the latest 9.5 firmware and I was wondering if the sky3DS can be used to downgrade to a lower firmware. Or are the sky3DS people so dumb that they did not implement a option to downgrade?


PS. if the sky3ds can be used to downgrade than I will use the gateway 3ds to hack the rest of the console.

Why would that make sky3ds developers dumb?

Sky3ds fakes a real cartridge and I would like you to show us which game is able able to downgrade a 3DS.

Can't downgrade with the Sky3DS because it doesn't have Kernel access (even if it did it wouldn't work on 9.5 since there's no public Kernel exploit on 9.5). The Sky3DS works by emulating a real 3DS cartridge.

uh this is not the PSvita the 3ds can't use hacked games to get access to anything. And sky3ds is dumb because if something like the region free option were to ever disapear than people can't downgrade and can't use gateway to get full access to the console.

PS: Am I speaking alien or something?

Okay so after looking at the 3dbrew website I found out that the 9.5.0-X firmware is exploitable on the new 3ds. The exploit was found by some one named Yellows8.

PS. I have not read the forum/website rules so I don't know if its okay to post links.

He probably was speaking about emunand support(when gw update will be released) because 9.5.0 new 3ds uses a new encryption

I believe Yellows8 discovered how to decrypt Key X on firmware 9.5, but the firmware itself is not actually exploitable (yet).

Not alien but just pain out stupid.

You are speaking 100% stupid.

The sky3ds was made for playing games and nothing else. It does its job.
The gateway was made for playing games and using some hombrew. It does its job. It was not meant for downgrading any 3ds.
That was something that was found out and turn out that it work and you could downgrade 9.0 firmware to a lower ver like 4.5

So everything you said makes you seem very stupid since you know nothing.

Just so I'm clear because I thought the complete opposite would be possible, that makes me stupid?


PS: mods can close this down any time now, I got what I was looking for.

in a way yes.
You fuss about something not working when you were miss inform on what it does. Then you called the company who made it dumb.

Thats like buying a blu ray player and calling the makers dumb because it doesnt play vhs tapes.

Is there anyway to downgrade the new 3ds 9.5 without gateway 3ds?

There is one way and that is to return it to the store or sell it and get a new one. Downgrading is impossible for the time being and won't be available until a new exploit is found for 9.5, and when/if that time comes, you won't need to downgrade.
