    if you are on 11.0 then yes, it's worth it, if not follow this guide https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki to install a9lh+cfw which is the closest you can get to a truly hacked 3ds

    It works on the latest. What is your current FW version?

    If its under 9.2 or 9.2 its good to install a cfw and not paying anything.

    Yes if you want to install a cfw.

    Then just start with the guide and in the end you'll have a hacked 11.0 system

    If it is at 10 it's still hackable , but starting at 10.5 you'll need a game to hack it

    It depends on what's important to you.

    pros:
    super easy. maybe even easier to use than DS flashcarts
    should be unblockable for a while, maybe forever.
    Can play homebrew titles if 10.7 or less (this gives you cfw options, should you decide to want that)

    cons:
    can't play eshop games, just unaltered cart roms
    need to use homebrew to launch out-of-region games
    Have to push a button to cycle through roms, no visual menu.
    $80
    Can't play homebrew titles on 11.0 (yet).
    Need private headers for online play or risk bans.

    I see.. already own the sky3ds though.. was just asking if it was worth upgrading to sky3ds+. I have a private header already (: but not tested it in awhile so maybe its banned now? last time I played it was fine.

    I say it's worth it (new sky3ds+ owner, never had previous versions).
    The big thing is it supports new games. Older sky versions have games blocked with releas dates going back to a year ago.
