    Why is steelhax chosen as the entry point? Does other hax works? I have a freakyhax cartridge (which works even on 11.2) and I wonder if I should get steel diver too..

    Steelhax is the only free entrypoint now. You can use other entrypoints if you have them.

    If you have freakyhax there's no need to worry about Steelhax

    It is free? It doesn't require a cartridge?

    Edit: It is free on eshop indeed, now I understand. Thank you guys.

    Yea I wasconfused because I didn't know that a game which was physically released could be downloaded for free on eshop. What's the point of buying the cartridge then??

    The cartridge is a different game, steel diver sub wars is the exploitable one, and that's a free eshop game, I think the cart one is just steel diver

    So if I only own one console, which is unhacked, Steel Diver is useless?

    Yes because you need a hacked system to set up steelhax for Steel Diver.

    Thanks for confirming. I'm glad the download was free.
