    You can buy DSiWare without an NNID, but you need another homebrew entrypoint because you can't get Steel Diver without an NNID.

    Exactly this. So I feel like you're making your life more difficult for no reason

    Apparently you can but it seems like an unnecessary risk and as the game would be attached to the device id and not the NNID

    Sky3ds works for homebrew entry points?!

    Yes, a lot of users got a Sky3DS instead of a Cubic Ninja for example because of the prices got ridiculous. Freakyforms Deluxe is also one you can use with Sky3DS.

    Never used a sky3ds but for some reason didn't think it was possible. Why does their website state no homebrew? Is that just referring to native homebrew then?

    I imagine they mean that no homebrew is required to use a Sky3DS. Their website also states "Compatible with other 3rd party homebrews", which makes it pretty clear.

    Risky? It's not risky, it reduces time for those wanting to downgrade only and have a physical entry point with 11.2 payload.

    Nintendo CAN restore your purchases to a 3DS even without NNID, given you have the serial code and give enough proofs of the 3DS being yours.

    My 3DS was destroyed back in 2013 before the NNID system came to the 3DS, and Nintendo helped me get all my purchases (above 150 games between eShop only, retail as digital and VC) back to my new 3DS.
