    where the potential goes to zero
    I generally hate windows GUI patching utilities because they are none to nice to begin with and rapidly fall into disrepair as Microsoft relentlessly fixes what isn't broken.

    So I was glad to see sky3ds.py. I grabbed an 8GB uSD and used it to load 6 games. However, I discovered I really don't like pushing that blue button so much and uSD cards are cheap (<$10 for 16GB class 10).

    I used sky3ds.py to delete the last game on the cart and now it seems like the cart is flakey: sometimes I get a crash after pressing the blue button but only on this uSD card. Did I do something incorrectly?

    Before:
    Code:
    sudo ./sky3ds.py -l -d /dev/mmcblk0
    | Slot | Start  | Size  | Type  | Code  | Title |
    |  0 | 32 MB  | 1024 MB | Card2 | CTR-P-EGDE | ???  |
    |  1 | 1056 MB | 3342 MB | Card1 | CTR-P-BTRE | ???  |
    |  2 | 4384 MB | 1024 MB | Card1 | CTR-P-ASJE | ???  |
    |  3 | 5408 MB | 1024 MB | Card1 | CTR-P-AFLE | ???  |
    |  4 | 6432 MB | 512 MB  | Card1 | CTR-P-ABQE | ???  |
    |  5 | 6944 MB | 512 MB  | Card1 | CTR-P-AT2E | ???  |
    
    Disk Size: 7552 MB | Free space: 96 MB | Largest free continous space: 96 MB
    
    After:
    Code:
    sudo ./sky3ds.py -d /dev/mmcblk0 -r 5  
    
    Removed rom from slot 5

    man IDK what are ya talking about, but SKY3ds GUI utility still works very well on win7,8,10. why don't you use the official thing?

    also after each change you make to your sky card, you chould insert it to the 3ds while holding the button, then remove it and reinsert, wait for the blue light to stop and reinsert again. then the blue button will work like normal

    Nevermind. After backing up saves, reformatting the card with the same 4 games, restoring saves, the card started working normally no more crashes.

    Looks like something like this is probably what happened:

    I've tested several other games and cards and sky3ds.py works just fine.
