    I was thinking if I should just go buy a brand new 2DS and use a CFW instead of getting Sky3DS and just sell my current 2DS . Am I doing the right choice? :D I live in the Philippines, and the Sky3DS is wortth roughly PHP 5,000 with 16 gb SD card while a brand new 2DS costs PHP 5,300 :D any drawbacks when I use this? https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-rxtools-roxas75-3ds-toolkit-fw-2-0-9-2.382782/ also is it guaranteed that majority of the 2DS are on 9.2 below? :D

    Majority are, just check that the copyright date is 2014 or less. Sky3DS can't block anti-piracy checks on newer games.

    Am I safe for as long as I back up my NAND? :D

    If you update past 9.2, then there is no current way of flashing your backup nand back to the system (unless you hard mod the 3ds)
    BTW there is a new sky3ds card known as the sky3ds+ that is firmware upgradable as well as resolving the AP check
