    Hi, as I failed in my intentions of installing A9LH+CFW to my N3DS 10.7 because my only possible entry point for hombrew didn't work (my smash cartridge version is 1.0.7)

    I decided that if I'm going to spend money in a OoT cartridge and a PowerSaves, I'd better buy a Sky3ds+.

    And one of my doubts is, could I:

    - Use the Sky3ds+ to use cubic ninja hax and downgrade to 9.2
    - Once in 9.2, use gateway launcher to dump one of my cartridges, and extract a private header using Gateway tool
    - And then update again to the latest firmware

    * - And if I'd still want to install A9LH, could I do it using the sky3ds+ as a homebrew entry point to downgrade and whatever, whenever I want to?

    Would sky3ds+ be all I'd need to buy?

    1) Yes
    2) Yes
    3) Yes
    4) Yes (If you have a sky3ds you can do more then you can ever imagine bb)

    Thank you! And, do you know if sky3ds+ could be blocked by Nintendo easily? Are there any incompatible new games? Id like to play some not yet released games in it.

    I do not know. I would think sky3ds would update it for the latest firmware as soon as it gets patched. So I am sure you have nothing to worry about :D

    Thanks! But I'd like to use it to play some new games, that's why I think to buy the new one.
