    Ohkay so i plan to purchase the new 3ds ll from nippon yasan mainly because its cheap as hell. And get myself a sky3ds the new one with rom changing built in. Because i know us ges wont work so i though of a work around.
    So now my idea was that as the sky3ds is out with a button to change roms i was wonderinf what if i first put a cubic ninja japanese rom on the sky 3ds then also put any US game rom and then insert the card to the 3ds if all goes well i will be able to access the qr checker then ill follow the process of regionfour for region freeing my device so people who have done that will know ithat now is when you are said to remove the cubic ninja and then insert the retail game.heres the catch after we are told to insert the out of region game card in the 3ds we just use the ROM CHANGING button on the new sky 3ds .......i dont see why it wont work please some one try this out and do tell me if this works.....any advice related to this is appreciated. AGAIN: i dont see why this wont work correct me if im wrong.

    It works. It was my default method for running out of region roms before Ironhax/etc.

    Ohkay just to confirm again though we load cubic ninja first then scan qr load exploit and when we r told to change the card we just press the blue button right? Sorry i just want to confirm everything before getting a japanese one.

    I am 99% sure it will work. But it is a pain in the ass using a Japanese system even if it is just for a few minutes to activate the hack. I used to have a Japanese Wii and I ended up region changing it to US. Also the customs duty will negate whatever discount you're getting. Plus if your package comes through Mumbai customs it will probably be stopped because those guys are real assholes and hate stuff that uses wifi or radio frequencies.

    They probably don't but you never know. That's why he's getting a Sky3DS. It won't matter if the 3DS is over 9.2.

    OK so about Cubic ninja - I have EUR console and most of the roms on the net are american. so I have CN EUR on my sky 3ds and more american ones, and I run them with region free HB (region four)
    it works.

    but in your place I would buy something on old FW (9.2 or less) cause sky3ds lacks the ability to use CIA's and its really annoying. with sky3ds + 9.2> you can enjoy the full power of 3ds
