    I'd hold onto it in case you come across a friend who needs it to hack their 3DS, unless you can find a copy of OoT for a cheaper price (this is more likely). In which that case, you'd sell the CN and buy the cheaper OoT, then flash the save onto it with your 3DS if you ever need to.

    Unless you really need the money i don't see a reason to sell cubic ninja.

    I would hang onto that copy of cubic ninja. With the possibilities of that card stacked against a OOT I would rather cubic ninja, given the payloads can be switched on any 3ds with working WiFi. Also correct me if I'm wrong but OOT is also missing certain firmware's that you may encounter. CN saved my N3DS when it "frankened" from 9.4 to 9.2 I needed to use some off string of 9.2 due to that to get back at home-brew. I don't have OOT any more so IDK if i would have had a payload for it. I could be dead wrong thou.

    Definitely keep. You never know when (if) you'll ever need to use it again. Even though I have ReiNAND, I still have mine, OoT, Sm4sh, and even Ironfall (before the update)!

    the nintendo selects oot is only $25 on ebay and is the same as the ones that can be save file hacked. so itd be a good idea to ditch the cn and make a few bucks off it

    Consider Cubic Ninja as a tool, you don't trow your hammer in the garbage just because you are not using every day right ?

    tbh id ditch CN and get an OOT, as you already have CFW set up

    Or since you have A9LH+AuRei you may asw uncart the CN and install it, then sell and get OoT for a quick buck

    Although the uncart thing depending on your opinion on Piracy

    I recommend holding onto it, seeing as it's one of the most reliable initial hb entry points to setup with. You don't need a power save, and there's virtually no chance of it getting updated, as the division of ubisoft that developed it is gone now.

    Your current 3DS could always end up stolen or broken. You never really know what will happen and should hang on to CN to deal with any possibility.

    I have a Sky3DS, and around here they cost a good amount of money because it's not cheap to import games. I have A9LH and a hardmod with two functional NAND backups... And I'm still holding on to my Sky3DS exactly to boot Cubic Ninja, it made A9LH installation faster, it saves me a lot of headaches from time to time, it helps a lot when hacking a friends console, and I tend to keep my consoles for a long time, I'm not sure how this community will be like say... 6 years from now, but I do know that Cubic Ninja will still be exploitable if the right payload is present.

    Cubic ninja saved me when I made a mistake downgrading my o3ds for arm9lh. I would hold onto it if i ever need to reinstall homebrew/ hack a new3ds
