I do admit that the Devmenu is powerful and allows you to do a lot of things that flashcards can't do, such as game updates.
The only problem is that Devmenu cannot be installed on the latest firmwares.
Actually I think when you install emunand for the first time, the emunand is set to the same FW version as your sysnand, which is <=9.2. So you'll have emunand at <=9.2. You can then install devmenu, no problem. Then upgrade emunand. This will break multi-rom menu, but the devmenu should still be there and working i think.
so even if you update emunand to 9.5 and don't have an emunand backup, you can just restart with a fresh SD card and a brand new emunand. As long as your sysnand is always <=9.2, you can always start from scratch
Go GW Go!
so? sky3ds is still losing that . right now gateways works on anything 9.2 or lower, and no 3ds has been shipped with higher firmware. so if the 3ds owner was dumb and updated the 3ds after GW announcement , then yes , sky3ds is the ideal flashcard for him ^^
Gateway wins in all respects.
Sky3DS is purely a device for pirating games. That is all. Nothing more and nothing less. Sky3DS is perfect for the twelvies who got a 3DS for christmas and their mummy won't buy them anymore games other than that random one she picked off the shelf at the time of purchase.
The more advanced user can dabble in the sky3ds competitor, the Gateway.
Back when Gateway team first came onto the scene, clearly their business model was to develop and market a device that enables piracy. But they have evolved so much more than just piracy, emuNAND with eshop for purchasing legit games, homebrew capabilities, a clunky but functional region free and firmware spoof system, and who could forget the recent addition to 3.0 for MOTHER-EFFING downgrading system menu version!!!
And of course there is the point that everyone else brings up, dev menu, oh and savedatafiler!
Hm? What is clunky about the region free?
But can it defeat Uchiha Madara?
No seriously now. Why does everyone care what card your super best friend on this forum use? I'm surrounded by unpaid marketeers.
Navigate menu -> Launch exploit -> Hold L trigger -> Insert red card -> Select classic mode -> Eject red card -> Insert foreign game -> Play.
I play alpha sapphire US version on my AUS console and it's growing very tiresome, Lol. Usually my 3DS just stays in sleep mode all the time so I avoid all the cart swapping
as a sky3ds fanboy, I LOVE devmenu. instaling CIA is fun.....
not playing games < playing games
SKY3DS wins on that battle
wtf is devmenu?
It's used to install CIAs on the 3ds
I have a Gateway and I'm wondering which to get if I want to add on DLC. Devmenu or BigBlueMenu? I've also heard rumors about other *something*menu stuff. Which one is the best?
if you have the latest version of devmenu, bigbluemenu is the same but with a fancy banner and icon. nothing different aside from that
I guess I'll go for BigBlue for the fancy banner and icon then. Thanks for the reply.
Better to have 'clunky' region free than no region free.
I wouldn't call it clunky. I have to be in classic mode to use my purchased game cards anyway. And in gateway mode they just run off the gateway anyway.
It's easier to just launch the exploit with the red card ejected, then insert it. That way it boots into the menu directly. No need to hold L and miss the timing. Then once the screen shows just swap cards. It's not very tiresome to me. If all else you can dump your games and play them all on the gateway so you don't need classic mode.
Agreed. Don't misinterpret my post. I'm a gateway fanboy enthusiast through and through
Sigh...here we go again with the downputting of the sky3ds. See, it's comments like these that actually spark the pointless "my flashcart is better than yours" debate. If people wanna play, they wanna play. They have their reasons for picking the card they want. I picked sky3ds because it wouldn't have worked on my version.
Sorry I was a normal, non-tech-saavy consumer and didn't buy the gateway before buying and upgrading my 3ds
Oh! You mean Region Free for retail carts. I thought you meant for ROMs. Yeah, I guess it's a bit clunky now that you pointed it out but not really something I mind much.
