    Hi everyone, had to register again, forgot my password for old account and I wasn't getting the reset password emails :huh:

    Anyway, just purchased a 2ds and N3ds xl, im going to put cfw on the 2ds but I was wondering which card I should get for the n3ds, im certain I need the sky3ds, fw is 9.9.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sky3ds is the only option for 3DS games.

    No, some games are blocked. For example, you can't use Triforce Heroes with Sky3DS.

    Nope. New anti piracy checks prevent it. But have fun on all the older games. :)

    If you dont want to get a Sky, then your only option is to update your 3DS to the latest firmware and buy your games at this point. Because you're too high for GW anyways and you don't wanna go Sky. As for wishful thinking on any future exploits, there's no legit proof for it.
