    Since Nov. 2014, when I bought an AUS N3DS and Gateway, there is NO chance to get this Flashcard working WITHOUT buying expensive extra Games and having nearly a university degree in computer sciences.
    Now I am just WAITING. Why buying one day this obscure Cubic Ninja, the other day an old Zelda Game ? No major Release is round the corner, the old games work fine with SKY, so for me now its o.K.
    Team Gateway is still alive and will possibly find a better an cheaper way, or other clever dudes will release a CFW. During the waiting Time MM will entertain me, for not so skilled players like me :gba: this game isnt done in a few days.

    You may be able to find Zelda OOT and Cubic ninja for less than £40 in some areas, I got OOT for £30 in UK

    I don't think it's too expensive, also try looking at Ebay also

    Good luck :yayps3:

    I like some people happened to already own these games or were waiting for ninjhax, I agree with you gateway requiring these is near levels of madness I can't understand but its also a beta and gateway seems like its geared more towards technical users like android power users. If you keep a vulnerable firmware then there will be custom firmware that even allows .CIA installation but you will have to be patient. Buy some games play them whatever to pass the time.

    Most sane people bought cubic ninja when ninjhax was release so most already were ready...

    I actually got a sealed CN yesterday for 10 Euros at ebay.it. Pretty cheap in my opinion.

    I don't think CN prices can go over Sky prices until Sky is blocked.

    So wait, are you saying you have a SKY3DS? If so, what's the problem? You can run both exploits off SKY3DS with Cubic Ninja being the easiest since you scan the exploit instead of worrying about loading a save game through DiskWriter.

    In all seriousness though, we should kind of be thankful for what hacks we have got on the 3DS. We are spoiled little brats in comparison to the PS Vita scene.......

    i think the only people who are a bit out of luck are people who imported JPN consoles.....but lets face it you got the console cheaper than elsewhere anyway so just cough up the extra and import one of them.
