    Hey there fellow users!

    Due to me being a stupid person, I updated my 3DS to 9.7 whilst trying to spoof the server to update to 9.2. I just bought a sky3DS and I don't know where to start. I already have the microSD card and I don't know what else to do so here are some questions:

    1. What is the accepted file format for the games?
    2. Should I switch wifi off when playing to avoid bans or should I do something else?
    3. Can anyone share any tidbits or extra info I should know about this flashcart?

    Also forgot to mention that I'll be using it for offline play only XD

    Thank you in advance and have a nice day :)

    2. No, you should switch it off because you're not using wireless functionality and you want more battery life (bans only apply when playing online off of it, since you're using it for offline only and are on 9.7 it's completely irrelevant)
    3. Put games you want on the microsd but don't want to play in Reserve, it'll save you scrolling time. (Also, 31 max non-Reserve games at once)

    You made a backup of your nand before you attempted the eshop spoof right? If you can, hard mod your 3ds and flash your nand backup.

    For the sky 3ds. Get the latest disk writer version. If you made any backups of your 3ds games before you updated your 3ds, use the private header from those for the games you plan to play on line and ad the header data to your template file.

    I had a NAND backup from way before that, but unfortunately it seems I deleted it off my hard drive and have not found anything as of yet :(
    I have loads of backups from my private games since I do have a 2DS which I use for injection and similar things. I'll try adding any private headers if I decide to play online using it :)
