    So if I put the 11th game on my sd card alone. It recognizes the game. But it will not allow me to play. It just keeps trying to auto switch to something different. So it cycles back and forth. Very odd!

    I've updated method 1 with english screenshots of the english tool and reworded some stuff. No problem. :)

    Can you try with a new sd card (not the original one you used) and just burn that 11th game.
    Then post the results. thank you.

    Can you tell me which method you used?
    Method 1 or method 2? or both?
    Thank you.

    I have 11 on one card and it works fine. But to make it easier. I just used another sd for games over the 10 limit. Works much better. So right now i have the 10 limit games on a card and the cracked 7 on another.

    New SD card same problem. It loads it then it cycles again like it wants to switch to something else. If I select A to play the game it will load up saying card removed error. I have to be missing a step...

    When i put the new card in it auto goes to the next game. I hold the red button for 5 seconds and the game work fine. All i did is run the crack, edit the F8,98 and then burn.

    When you switching to the 11 game. Look at the screen of your 3ds to see your 11 game appear. Once appear, without any delay hold on to the red button for 5 second and then release. The blinking light will flashes non stop but your 11 game will remain without automatically switching to the 12 game. Now click "A" button to launch the 11 game without any issue. Remember when you end the game, press home and close the app. The blinking light will still flash non stop which prevent you from skipping to the next game. One method I try is to enter setting and from setting exit out back to home screen by pressing "X" button and it will switch to the next game. It work for me and save still remain.

    Yes me too! I think I might have finally got it working. The red button 5 second wasn't doing anything for me before but now it seems to be working as it should.
    THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP :):)

    Method 2 I read results in corrupted data from having to pull the cartridge out and putting it back in each time to get to a b c game. I also read that it doesn't work at all for saving your game. Method 1 is the way I am going anyway now that it works!

    That's why I got a second sd. 1st one has the 10 game limit and the next one has all the cracks on them. No issues that way and saves work.

    After you exit out the game with the home button. Go into setting then press x to get out. You can go to another game or turn the system off. I have changed between my two cards with no issues.

    Be carefull with this method, if you want to backup your save, you have to backup to whole game! Because save is stored in the game!

    Backuping save do nothing
