    I just wrote animal crossing HHD on my sky3ds sdcard. Yes. It has AP check and it doesn't show on my N3DS 9.9. But the strange thing is that the game title shows on my O3ds 4.5 on SYSNAND!! And obviously asks me to update to be able to play the game.
    I tried to install ninjhax 1.1b but it gives me black screen if I change the game. So, I couldn't check if hans can work with it.
    What do you think,guys? could this leads us to AP removal on new firmware?

    nope, unless the game was compatible with a FW below 9.6.....which i guess is possible, basically for sky3DS users on 9.3-9.5 it *MAY* let them play AP games by bypassing the update,anything below that and they could use CFW,anything above that and the system is AP aware

    Yeah. I know. But the thing is, the title screen shows in 4.5 sysnand. It doesn't show on 9.9.

    it may not work still.....if you could, update your o3DS to 9.2, then try to launch the game via hans with no CFW....it may or may not work, but the usability/usefulness would be limited tp 9.3-9.5 users only really

    give the normal region free launcher a go too, just to rule out any issues there

    Stuck on black screen. I'll just get FE. I am almost sure it'll work.

    Yeah. They added them a few days after they got released. You can check their template and see the title IDs right there.

    The icon will show in older firmwares. I just used a normal template from sky website.
