    I've been interested in ordering a Sky3DS, but was puzzled when I read that Sky3DS doesn't play "homebrew". On one particular instance, I heard an anonymous user state that one cannot play any mods or hacks for 3DS games with it, which got me wondering if "homebrew" is supposed to entail hacks and mods as well.

    So is the term "homebrew" inclusive of these as well? I'd appreciate any help.

    Homebrew is anything created "unoffically" hence the "home-brew" as in made at home. This means emulators, cheating, mods to roms ect. Any kind of modification.

    As for sky3ds. It only plays legit retail cartridges, so no eShop ported games ect. It has to be a regular 3ds dump. If however your console is on 9.2 or bellow, you can use some homebrew bia ninjhax.

    So will it detect that a ROM I'm using is modified and prevent me from playing it then?
