Will someone with Sky3DS test this for me?

    So I was just wondering today if somebody with Sky3DS would help me test this.

    I wonder if you put DevMenu (which they have a .3ds file for) on Sky3DS and had formatted it to install .CIAs if it would. Now this being said there is a YouTuber who has a .Cia file for the 9.2 internet browser on it. If this would work, in theory shouldn't you be able to go to the go.gateway-3ds.com link and back up your system nand and downgrade with it? I am new to the hacking scene and don't know much about it. I don't know if the internet browser allowed you to downgrade or if it was the system firmware itself.

    However this might brick your 3ds but again I am new so I have no idea.

    In order to do this you would need a 3DS running firmware where you couldn't do this anymore and a Sky3ds aswell as the will to do it.

    Again anybody who could or have already tested this let me know I would be very grateful.

    Besides that, it would require signature check patched CFW to work even if it was in the template (hence would only work on 9.2 or below) as sky3ds on its own only works with correctly signed and encrypted roms.

    I wonder if it's possible to play edited games with the Sky3ds using cfw

    Well if you have access to a CFW then there's not even any need to use the Sky3DS, unless you're using NTR CFW (for cheats or other plugins) which doesn't patch signature checks (i. e. doesn't allow piracy through the installation of CIA files)

    It can still be convenient to play games in .3ds format, so I was just curious.

    The Sky3DS pretends to be a legitimate cartridge. It'll only work for software that exists as a retail cartridge.

    It was more of a hypothetical "if the sig checks for cartridges were disabled and we could add games to the template, could we load fan translations in .3ds on a Sky3ds?" I know it's kind of pointless, since it's so easy to just install .cias, but I was just thinking about if it was possible or not. (Sorry for going off topic, OP.)

    would trimming the ROM pose more susceptibility to a ban?
