    yes but you need to use it from sysnand.
    NAND does not contain your games unless you're looking for DSiware

    Ah... I can't access homebrew on my sysnand. Browserhax just doesn't work for me on 6.1.

    dumping the game dumps everything from the game card (game executable, manual, download play child, new/old update data).

    you can use homebrew to dump the contents of the save file from the original game card, then put them in the save file for the game on the Sky3DS. you might need to start the game on the Sky3DS at least once before doing this.

    Is it okay to use a different SD card to update? I don't want to move everything off my main SD since that will take a millennium. lol

    I dump my SSB. Its has 9.2.0 update. But when i launched its from sky3ds its doesnt ask for update a o3ds 8.1. Maybe sky3ds has a protection to skep that?

    Sorry i didn't understand how can i dump a save file from original card and use with sky.

    are you sure the original game card you dumped had the 9.2.0 update, and you are using the exact rom you dumped?

    use *hax and svdt to dump save files from the original game card: https://github.com/meladroit/svdt/releases
    put asr.dat, svdt.3dsx, svdt.smdh, svdt.xml at /3ds/svdt

    Yes im sure its has. Because i did update using it. But before update i dump the game. Copy to sky3ds and launch the game. Works withtou ask for update. So i take original cart and updated that console.

    Well thank you for the link. I was just curious.

    Because my situation its. I have zelda oot and ssb. I was thinking to sell it out and keep only sky3ds. Its more fast and easy to use. And i can tried different exploit if needed like oras and ninja.

    CIAs(including eShop downloads) install to the "Nintendo 3DS" folder on the SD card. the best way is to just keep CIAs around of games/applications you want. you can also back up this folder as well as the NAND that you use to play your games.

    It's installing 9.2. Never been so nervous over a console before. x.x

    Success! I'm now on 9.2! I don't need Slotx25key.bin and mset. I'll now try dumping my games now.

    You can use the Gateway menu, which is launchable with the browser. You don't even need a red card.
