    ok so the orange button cart was released to bypass AP checks that's cool I get it... The orange button cart also don't use a template like the previous versions of sky3ds ( blue and red button ). However sky3ds continues to update there template. Disc writer acknowledges the rom and writes it to micro as card but it don't show up on my system even with Hans and region free loader. Anyone know why the template is updated if the new Sky3ds don't use one And they don't work on older carts?

    Make sure the game matches the region of your handheld. While the sky3ds will take the rom it doesn't bypass region checks.

    You should try to write to sky3ds team and ask them, Why they do it!? We do not know.

    I sent a email to the Sky3DS team. That's the answer they gave to me:
    "We are still working on a AP checks solution for the old cards, and will keep the template updated as well."

    You do not know either, so you and me = we lol XD, but seriously the sky3ds team have been replying that "we still working" but the orange button already work so I don't think there much effort on making the blue button to work.

    I've tried with region free loader and
    glad to see you went to the website and quoted it verbatim. No contact made...

    If you actually tried to make contact yourself you'd know all they do is copy paste that exact quote to everyone who asks.

    yup i got a nice copy and past when i emailed them about the blue button not working with 2gb sd cards, i tried like 4 diff cards all diff brands and none would work on it. i found threads with people having the same issues. their response was what is said on the site that it works with 2gb cards. i was like good job guys

    I suspect the older cards will never work with AP given they released a new one. Just saying.

    Hell
    Guess they never fixed it lol. But with the template tools to add any game to the template and hex editing out the two values for ap checks, any game will work with cfw, so the blue button isnt totally useless if you use it to get homebrew (ninjhax or other exploits), then install cfw from the exploit on the cart XD

    Proof blue button will work with any game on cfw :
