    Is this "Plug&play" shit solution (pay 80 dollars, wait until the cart arrives, look for GOOD cart dumps on untrustful websites, then copy-pasta) better then just install CFW with NTRBoot (which is just press a botton combo then press A) + install freeshop?
    I don't think so....

    There are enough User that dont want to modding their 3DS/2DS so they buying a Flashcard rather than install a CFW.

    Considering the price of sky3ds+, it's a decent price for a true do EVERYTHING solution.

    This includes ntrhax.

    and not everything is available on freeshop.

    That said people intending to hack do not need this.

    It is a decent option for those who don't want to pirate, though it's hard to justify the cost in that case.

    Why would they not buy a cheaper Sky3DS then? They wouldn't need the ntrboot functionality.

    Can someone please explain how this is all going to work? I still have a 9.0 sysnand and 11.2 Emunand. Will I be able to update my emunand finally? Or will I be able to play any game on the card on 9.0 sysnand?

    I really wish GW would release an update so I can get the games ive been missing....especially the recent Mario Party Top 100 i want to play.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. This cart is like... trying to decide where to go on holidays. You're afraid of skiing so you rent a beach house. You could get one that includes ski hire for extra or one that doesn't. Who in their right mind would pay extra for the ski equipment when they are staying at the beach house BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID TO SKI? If you want to ski, you wouldn't be renting a beach house now would you?

    Same with this cart, there is not a single person in the world who is the rigjt market for it. Except, people who are interested out of morbid curiosity (@BORTZ) or people who are totally misinformed ("I don't know what ski is but more functionality has to be worth paying for").

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    This cart will be like Sky3DS with ntrboot added, it won't help you play your games on Gateway.

    They don't really count as part of the potential market if they are giving it away for free. I mean people that would willingly pay for it and use it. If someone gave me a free SNES everdrive I would take it and stick it in a drawer even though I'd never use it (don't own a SNES). I'm not the market for it but would accept a freebie.
    Edit: and they're not exactly a success if the only way they can get their product into people's hands is giving them away.

    If you aren't pirating, you're dumping your own private collection and using their headers. Therefore the only thing that is needed is a Sky3DS+. The added functionality of ntrboot/ntrhax/magnethax means nothing to someone not expanding their collection via illegal methods, nor would freeshop (unless their collection was digital and from a different region).

    Just because someone has one doesn't make them terrible, that's like saying "Oh you use AMD you are stupid". Practically you are also saying peoples preferences are wrong too, which you don't have the right to judge lol.
