    I found a Sky3DS for a very cheap price (woocards.com, is that legit?), and I am thinking of buying it. I was planning on getting a 2DS with 9.2, though. But with Ninjhax 2.0 releasing, I can use homebrew on my latest firmware 3DS, as well as play "backup copies" with Sky. So should I get a 2DS or get a Sky3DS? I am leaning toward sky, becuase I will be able to play the backup copies my friends gave me online (lol) on the 3DS I have now, as well as homebrew with Ninjhax 2.0 with my legit cartridge of Cubic Ninja. Thanks:P

    That depends how much you value homebrew, if not, just grab a Sky3DS.

    9.2 New 3DS or a 9.2 Below Old 3DS XL
    you should only get a sky card if you're 9.3 and up on either console.

    If you buy an sky3ds you will be able to use, ninjhax 2.0, region four and all roms you want. If you buy a 9.2 you will be able to use that plus emunand, cias, cheats and other 3ds tools

    Well, most homebrew will work with Ninjhax 2 on 9.8

    Yeah until it drops we won't know anything and I doubt most stuff will run past 9.3 since it would be missing arm9 and have limited arm11. At best I can see extdata stuff running

    but most arm9 stuff is used for downgrading/cfw/installing cias, which is mainly for piracy, and I will be able to pirate with sky

    I'm planning on getting a 2ds and using ninjhax to boot cfws and all, but then i'd feel like i'm not using my 3ds at all. now i'm thinking of getting a 3ds, system transfering my stuff from from my old o3ds with 9.9 sysnand to my new o3ds with 9.9 emunand. does sysnand to emunand system transfer even work?

    System nand to emunand yes, emunand to system nand as long as the cia files are all legit

    Also remember with the 2ds/3ds the cfw can run ninjahax as a cia so no need for the cart. A ds cart would make a wonderful addition though

    Yeah I would sell both the 3ds and cubic ninja and just take a profit from using that money for a 2ds and 64gb card

    Actually on WooCards you have to buy 5 SKY3DS to get the cheap price ($63.00). So you probably have to pay like $300 to get it.
    Try PeachDS or DWZTech- I prefer PeachDS though...

    I kinda want to keep cubic ninja, just for the heck of it, and get a 3ds instead of a 2ds, which will replace my current 3ds, I wonder how much gamestop will take for my current one.
    EDIT:

    yeah i just found that out when trying to check out...

    There's a estimator on their site; your best bet is to try to trade a pawn shop

    there is a deal where you get 100$ credit toward a New 3ds, but aren't those like above 9.2? I wouldn't be able to transfer though, so no. I can trade it for 40$, but I wouldn't be able to system transfer.. I might just sell it on ebay, after I buy the o3ds and transfer.

    Yeah most n3ds units are 9.3+ but you can always check the serial numbers to double check
