    Hi there,

    Sometimes when reading some topics i just dont understand some stuff. Like NTR, CIA(eshop) installation etc. Is it necessary?
    Do we really need that for using the flashcarts?

    Using gateway 3ds xl some while now and now I was wondering getting the n3ds.
    But it seems that the gateway dont work well for this version.
    So what would i do first when i buy the N3ds xl.

    Do i need to buy a sky3ds and a powersave? Or just keep my Gateway?
    How do i install it and swapping games isn't that annoying with bunch of games on it?

    Love the small one for changing covers, but the screen quality made the difference to me not getting the small n3ds.

    I hope you could help me and i think sure other people considering getting a new 3ds were to start and look for the right links and information.

    Thank you

    Don

    Do i need to buy a sky3ds and a powersave? Or just keep my Gateway? If >9.2, you'd need sky but not powersave
    How do i install it and swapping games isn't that annoying with bunch of games on it? Plug it in

    Gateway works fine if you happen upon a physical cubic ninja or OoT.

    Take my remarks with a grain of salt as I do not own a n3ds. I read up on them when I was deciding between o3ds or n3ds.
