    regionFOUR By smealum

    (RegionFour has been updated to support firmwares between 9.2.0 and 9.7.0, with some reports of it working on 9.0.0)


    regionFOUR is a region free loader for New3DS/New3DSXL/3DS/3DSXL/2DS which currently works on on firmware versions 9.2 TO 9.7 this also allows you to bypass mandatory gamecard firmware updates.

    it is a successor to regionthree made to rely on an exploit game (currently cubic ninja, zelda OOT support might come) rather than the web browser. as such it only requires an internet connection the first time it is run, and can then be run offline.

    FAQ:
    • Requires Cubic Ninja
    • Supported Firmwares: 9.2.0-xx, TO 9.7.0-xx
    • Supported Models: New 3DS, New 3DS XL/LL, 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS
    • Internet not required (Only if you choose to install the savegame)
    Downloads and Instructions:
    Please visit: http://smealum.net/regionfour/ To download, Instructions are there too.

    awesome ! hope it will work with sky3ds :)

    First thing to do when I am home is using this to play Youkai Watch! ^^


    Any info if the code for 9.7.0.25 works with the 24 version ?
    I think I just recently updated to 25 and on smeas page it only goes to 24

    look again. the number after the dash actually doesn't matter at all for this, so no worries.

    As long as you have a copy of cubic ninja for the region of the console you'd be using

    could this be chained with the mset patch to remove the online requirement?

    Like stated on the page, you only have to do it once online to get the patch, you can save it to the Cubic Ninja cart, after that you don't need an internet connection again, but you do need Cubic ninja everytime. If you don't save it to the game cart, you do need an internet connection everytime.)

    Great work again [user]smealum[/user] :)

    Confirmed working with sky3ds on 9.2.0-20E n3ds :)

    I'm guessing it's normal i can't exit game by pressing the home button? (just freezes system when i do that, so power off is only option).

    I know it says Cubic ninja, but I remember there being something similiar for Bangai-o Spirits.. Don't suppose this will work with that will it?
