    On the sky3ds card when I come across Majora's Mask or Mario & Luigi Dream Team, I see a message that says an update is available.
    Is it possible to patch the .3ds rom file with the updates installed?
    If so what tools do i need or is there a link to already updated roms (compatible with sky3ds of course)

    Can't patch roms with sky3ds. It'll break sigs and the game wont work.

    Boy I am not sad i bought this card anyway the console had a firmware over 9.2 when i bought it... but its a bummer being limited to un-updated physical cartridge roms only... allowed to play less than a third of 3DS released games, cause most games come out as eshop downloads only...

    go ahead and update with eshop.....
    I believe your firmware is higher than 9.2.

    Sky3DS works on OFW which means you can update and use the game updates and such, not sure why you wouldn't ???

    you could just download updates from eshop once the firmware spoofer is out (if your firmware is not latest)
