    My issue is complicated. I have an old 3ds, which I have 2 games I hack alot, pokemon moon (cartridge) and animal crossing (digital). Since 11.4 I was unable to homebrew it so I got powersave. Sadly I dont think im able to hack animal crossing new leaf which I really want to hack. So im not sure what to do to be able to hack new leaf. Should I get sky3ds, gateway, cubic ninja, some weird software idk. Any response from someone with knowledge to help my dilemma would help. Thank You!

    You should really consider installing CFW with your 3ds, doing that you can easily do game hacking via NTR (or rosalina too?). But since you're on v11.4 already, the only ways to install CFW are to do a hardmod, dsiwarehax, or wait for ntrboothax.

    Now if you insist on staying on OFW, using sky3ds+ is your best bet since you already have a powersave. download the new leaf rom and the pokemon moon rom and put it in the flashcart, then use the pokemon moon cartridge's private header with your sky3ds+ to play online without getting banned. You can use the powersave with the sky3ds+ to do some game hacking.

    if you have acsses to a second hacked ds you could use that guide. https://3ds.guide/installing-boot9strap-(dsiware-game-injection) otherwise you have to wait for magnethax to be released.

    If were to go with option 2, do you have a step by step guide on how to hack my digital animal crossing new leaf (btw its on a sd card) I'm fine on Pokemon moon since I know how to deal with power saving that cartiage, I just want to generate items and swap save files. Also I could get cfw but I don't want to defeat the purpose of powersaves, unless I'm reading this wrong, then please elaborate on CFW.

    Since you are on ofw 11.4,you don't have many options unless you have dsiware for Zelda forswords. For more info read this guide 3ds.guide.

    You still won't be able to hack digital games, you'd have to start over on the Sky.
    If homebrew worked properly on 11.4 o3DS you'd be able to move your save over to the cartridge version but sadly that's not the case.

    Gambia, The
    I dont think this will help you. You still need access to a hacked 3ds to manipulate the save game. Sky3ds encrypts the game with its header like a original card does. You can backup it but it won't help you much without access to cfw.

    The only benefit you would have is using prehacked saves from someone else.

    i think your confused the sky3ds would not allow you to edit digital games save files in order to do that you would need cfw

    sky is only a piracy cart all it does is emulate one game card at a time
    cfw is piracy with the highest level of homebrew possible allowing full control of all things installed on your system including but not limited to gamefiles/themes/savefiles you can even use ntr (a cheat program)
