    SkyDock, an adapter worked with sky3DS+(V140), which enable you to get the private header from one of your original 3DS game card, and play online games properly.

    SkyDock Features:
    • * Build your own private header file for online game play (the original 3DS game card needed);
    • * Read the original game saved data directly;
    • * Dump any original game card to .3DS file format;

    But why would anyone use a Sky3DS card?

    It has fringe uses like being a great tool to have access to nearly every homebrew entrypoint for any given region, but its usefulness outside of that is a matter of opinion, heh.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    Still, the most usefull option is the dumping of an original gamecart to the microSD of the Sky3DS+

    It works whatever firmware you have.
    It doesn't leave any trace in the system.

    We all agree that CFW is better but if you're paranoid or/and don't want to hax your 3DS it's still the best option.

    Personally I put all my cart games on it. It's also faster to copy a game to the SD card than installing it on the sloooooow 3DS, when you just want to quickly test a game it's nice.

    I'm very disappointed by this new dock. I hoped they found a way to get rid of the private header but I guess it's nice if you don't have access to a 3DS with a CFW.

    Well, found on Internets that this thing will be cheap. (Don't know the credibility though)
    If it is so, then yes, rather interesting thing if you don't want to mess with hacking.
    Especially interesting if you just are a gray pirate, that buys cartridges if the game is good.

    So it's just a PowerSaves + game cart dumper?

    Yes, with a private header extractor to txt file for convenience.
    It also seems to be able to create everything all at once from cart to Sky3DS+.

    I guess that's worthwhile. They would have been better to sell this during the drought from 9.2-10.3(?). There's not going to be too much market for it. It's still cheaper for most people to post their console to a hardmodder and get b9s installed than buy a Sky3DS plus this new product.

    No idea, I guess if you don't have any issue you don't have to.
    I know I will because I HAVE to :P but otherwise it's up to you.

    If it's your own header and you are 100% sure it's injected correctly, I don't see why you should. The changeling doesn't include any increased compatibility, just dock compatibility.
