    Hi all, so I've got myself a sky3ds blue button card which works fine however with new games coming out and new AP arrangements in place I'm looking at what alternatives we have.

    There is a new card named sky3ds plus which claims to play all games and is firmware upgradable.

    There is also the super card dstwo plus which I have just seen and also claims to play all games. This also is firmware upgradable.

    So does firmware upgradable mean that when Nintendo bring out new ap processes by upgrading the firmware this would possible get around the ap?

    Which card should you be looking st buying? I've previously had a super card dstwo for dis games and that worked fine and I've never had issues with this card.

    The same can be said for the sky3ds. It has had its moments where I've had to reinsert the card to pick the game up but more often than not its been fine.

    What card would you got for and why??? Has anyone had a dstwo plus card what's your review of it?

    The choice of a new card depends of your current console firmware...
    If you have v9.2 or below version, you can try DSTWO PLUS.
    If you have v9.3 or above version, you must get Sky3DS+ to load the last games with new AP.

    Also, if you have 9.2 or below you can use CFW for free (no need for any card).

    If your 3DS is on <9.2, just use a CFW. (rxTools for example)
    If you 3DS is on >9.3, just buy a Sky3DS+, nothing else will work.

    Edit because of @Quantumcat :

    From 1.0 to 9.2 -> CFW
    After 9.2, from 9.3 to XX.XX until something is found (may never happen) -> Sky3DS+

    You need greater than or equals/less than or equals signs, currently your post says you can't do anything with 9.2 or 9.3 :-p

    dont buy a DSTwo + if you dont wanna risk a Brick.
    If it has to be a flashcard take Gateway 3ds. (on fw below or equal to 9.2)

    Ummmm, I have had a gateway for a couple of years now. Like I asked in my post, which you obviously didn't read, heh, I want a sky3ds+. Ordered and paid for already. Again, thank you for the recommendation Xenon Hacks and Quantumcat. That was extremely easy. My only complaint is that I thought it had already been released and they said it won't ship until 12/21. No big deal really. Again, thanks guys.

    Yea, they didn't start shipping the Sky3DS+. I ordered mine and the ("French"(Google French I think)) reseller website is telling that they will start to send the preordered cards on the 16th... I hope that they'll ship it in time.
