    Hi,

    Looking to buy a sky3ds+ card for my 2ds, could anyone recommend any genuine sellers for UK?

    Thanks,

    Why not install a cfw?

    There are 3 resellers listed on their site http://www.sky3ds.com/reseller.html

    Listen to @CoolAlpha, it's cheaper to get someone to hardmod your system than it is to buy a crappy flashcart

    I'm on Ver. 11.0.0-33E and it looks tricky downgrading and needing various trigger games or access to another 3ds

    Anyone used http://www.r4ds-uk.com/ ?
    They get back to you with any questions, but the reviews on google ain't favourable

    Anyone used @gamesquest1 in the UK? Have these modders been vetted or trusted?

    Thanks everyone for the replies, I will consider the hardmod option as well.

    However, can anyone shed any light on this seller: http://www.r4ds-uk.com/ anyone used them? I know they aren't on the reseller list, but if anyone knows anything about these sellers, its you guys.

    I would try the sky3ds reddit actually, not a lot of people here buying flashcarts anymore - it just doesn't make sense to at this point.

    @sharpharp Even 11.2 can be downgraded now (with fasthax + safehax), the guide should be updated with instructions for it soon, instructions for 11.0 and 11.1 are already up. Nothing extra is needed, just a 3DS and something to transfer files to a SD card with (probably a PC)

    Guys,

    Followed the https://3ds.guide/get-started and got to the bit where you play the sound, it briefly flashed up something on the top screen about robin homebrew then went blank, while the bottom screen in red...

    I have the Starter folder in the root of the sdcard, alongside the otherapp.bin and the soundhax-eur-03ds.m4a in the root

    In 3ds sound, when I go via the sdcard it only finds something called <3 nedwill 2016

    What do I do now?

    That's normal. Try it again. The homebrew launcher isn't very stable.

    Tried it a couple of times, it says on the top screen, homebrew is ready, but then screen goes black and the bottom screen goes red.

    Do you have the 3dsx.boot on the root of your sd? Is your 3ds connected to the internet?

    Yes the 3ds is connected to the internet.
    No there is n 3dsx.boot in the root. There is boot.3dsx in the "starter" folder

    Your suppose to have the contents of that starter folder on the root of your SD Card.

    But... wait, the zip file doesn't even have a starter folder to begin with.... So I am unsure why you ended up with one... or why you put those contents inside a folder called "starter"

    When I extracted the zip, it automatically created a folder called starter and put the contents in there, so thicko me just copied the folder over to the root...

    OMG, just copied the contents to the root and I now have the homebrew launcher :-)

    So, do I carry on next to this bit: https://3ds.guide/decrypt9-(homebrew-launcher)

    Stay with me please, super noob in the making here

    @sharpharp I tried to buy a sky+ from 3dscarduk.com last week but fear I got Stitched up. Website now down, removed from sky official resellers and no email confirmation of my sale. They did take the money. I fear all the UK sellers are actually abroad. I've now sent my 3ds to @gamesquest1 for a hard mod. Lots of good rep on these forums and very helpful. Once back I'll post some pics and feedback.

    Although cfw feels only a few days away from being something I could have done myself I think hard mod still gives me the best option and safety :) Very reasonable price so I'm actually embarrassed I went the sky+ route first. If my card does turnup I'll be selling on ebay just to get my money back.

    I say work out cfw yourself or send off for a hard mod. Stay clear of sky+ cards.
