    Question is in the title of the thread, I'm really confused.

    I know the recent 10.2 update broke some of smealum's hax, but, I'm not sure if there is anything that the community knows of that makes staying on 9.9 worthwhile versus going to 10 or 10.1(Assuming there are any games that update you to 10). Any advice?

    If you don't need the eshop, then you have no reason to update.

    Sorry, noob question here, can you still play online even though you are not on the latest firmware? and can you play online on that Sky3DS?
    i'm planning to buy one, but i'm confused if i need to update to play online or stay in 9.8 firmware of my o3ds. thanks!

    Except for mh4u, if the game has an update (like the pokemons or ssb) the you need to update your console to download it.

    The answer to this all depends on what you are using the 3ds for if you are only playing games using the sky3ds then update but if you want homebrew and emulators then stay on 9.9

    If you are using solely Sky3DS, update.
    If you want to use Homebrew, update in the next few minutes when smea suddenly fixes everything
    All you losers who don't have Cubic Ninja and are fretting about 10.2
    You big dummies

    can you play online on CFWs? i'm choosing whether to buy a low firmware 3ds or a Sky3DS, and does Sky3DS support the latest update?

    - Yes you can
    - Yes, but games with the new ap check are not compatible with the sky3ds.

    Obviously an exploitable console with a cfw.
