?

Are you keeping your sky3ds+ card even if you install cfw?

  1. Yes, I'm keeping it even with cfw.

    31.0%
  2. No, I will be selling mine.

    1. Sky3ds+ plays all my games with full online capabilities.(extracted my own private header)
    2. Even with the recent "guide" there's still a 20% chance of brick or 1 out of 5 bricked 3ds according to a poll.
    3. I was searching to see how much a new 3dsxl was going for and to my surprise they are out of stock in all the stores in my area and the cheapest i could find online was $300. (I paid $179 when i bought mine at target.) So the risk of brick is definitely not worth it for me.
    4. I could care less about pokemon sumo. I have 3 other Pokémon games that work and they are way way down on my back log of games to play.
    5. Already playing Mario maker on wiiu.

    6. Eventually sky3ds+ will have an update.
    And finally
    7. If and when my n3dsxl breaks or just stops working i can just simply stick my sky3ds+ in any future 3ds and my game library will be playable instantly.

    That's retarded.
    Stop trying to make reasons on why you threw money in the trash just to make you feel better.
    Sell that shit and get CFW, you'll only brick if you're an idiot ( which it seems like you are. )

    (Replace "sky3ds+" with "rxTools" when reading first 5 reasons, and you're good to go *raises flame shield*)

    Are you that guy that always posts in A9LH threads advertising the greatness and godliness of the magnificent thing called Sky3DS? Because that's the first thing that popped into my mind. What is even the point of this thread? If you don't wanna use A9LH it's your choice but making a thread about it and showcasing why A9LH is so "bad" is just retarded especially when your 7 reasons are retarded themselves. 20% brick rate? LOL. There might've been more bricks now when 11.2 became fully exploitable and I'd bet anything 100% of those bricks were user errors. If you don't have the brain power to read and follow a guide then hacking isn't for you. It doesn't mean A9LH is bad.

    You do realize if your 3DS breaks for whatever reason you haven't lost a single thing because all of that stuff like games and saves are on your SD card .. So when you claim you can just grab Sky3DS and put it in another console that's exactly what you can do with that SD card though of course you'll have to hack a new console as well. Not bad considering you're actually not gonna brick if you're not stupid.

    edit: Well apparently SD card saves are encrypted to that console itself so I guess I was wrong. This whole topic is still retarded though.

    I'd rather use free alternatives to play my backups than spend 80 dollars or less on a flashcart to emulate only so many games, and that's with restrictions.

    I recommend installing A9LH anyway. As long as you follow the instructions correctly, it's safe. You can continue to use your Sky 3DS with CFW. I use mine to store my completed saves, with modified games installed on the home menu. It can even work the other way around; the Sky 3DS+ can run modified ROMs provided there's CFW and they're properly encrypted with Decrypt9.

    Your choice boi, I didn't waste 90$ for a stupid flashcart :')

    #A9LHMasterRace

    (Sorry to be rude, but only noobs with no knowledge of electronics stuff should get that, and even if you do, you would need to extract the private header somehow. If you're going to waste 90$ for something you can get for free, it better be worth it(which in this case, Sky3DS is not.))

    1) Okay? So can we? Best part is we don't need to get a header in order to play online.
    2) 20% chance? The majority of bricks from using the guide was due to user error and there's no denying that. I haven't forgotten about OTP-less (which isn't even a thing anymore) that has bricked a few New3DS' unfortunately for an odd reason.
    3) Well what the hell were you thinking? They were all purchased on Black Friday and Christmas for kiddies who didn't have one or wanted another one and aren't being manufactured unless some limited edition 3DS comes out.
    4) Okay? Pokemon isn't the only reason why people have CFW.
    5) Great for you kiddo! Same as number 4.
    6) Well no shit, everything gets updates once in awhile.
    7) This is the only thing you said that I can't smack talk to you about, definitely a nice thing.

    1. Same with A9LH
    2. Thats just one poll. If you read the guide and know what youre doing you wont brick.
    3. Get a $170 refurbished from nintendos website.
    4. Bigger compatibility list is still better.
    5. Bigger compatibility list is still better.

    6. And then you'll need to wait for the next one to play the 2017 games.

    I'm pretty sure most of those bricks were caused by user error (and there are many trolls that vote "Oh, 1 br1ck3d mah tree-dee" just for fun or to scare people)

    Also you could get banned if you don't use private headers

    (but I guess you know that already, right?)

    Yeah...
    Why having a free CFW with online support when you can pay 90$ to get a flashcart that requires a private header in order to play online...
    Retarded thread. This goes the same for rxFools and Brickway supporters.

    Saves would be shot, actually...
    ...but that's more an argument in favor of doing periodical bulk exports with JK, and extracting movable.sed just in case, lol

    Exactly my point. Say new 3ds are released with 11.3 and everything is patched then what are you gonna do with that sd card?

    We just wait calmly for the CFW to update, it happened before when people used certain Luma3DS files, and updated to 11.1, it never booted because of some broken patches, which got fixed later on. Compared to Sky3DS, which you guys have been waiting months to get SuMo compatibility :')

    Ahem, that poll is not about the bricks count, but rather people that did or did not install A9LH. Moreover, bricks are 100% user errors. You'll only brick if you don't know how to read instructions...
