This flashcart for 3DS made by Sky3DS supports firmwares up to 11.0.0-33 and therefore works with 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, New 3DS and New 3DS XL. It might be possible to boot homebrew thanks to smealum and his NINJHAX exploit. It can play 3DS games but is region-locked, but this can be easily bypassed using RegionFOUR.

Using Sky3DS

1. Switch to next GAME: Use the two orange buttons to cycle forward/backward through the games in the MicroSD. Sky3DS+ will save EEPROM to microSD card, it will skip to next game, at the same time, will read this game save data with EEPROM to microSD card, then you can start to play.

2. Restore all games save data: Connect Sky3DS with MicroUSB cable to the PC. Select all .sav files and copy to PC.

3. Initialise SKY3DS+: Download gamelist.bin from Sky3DS website. Copy ROMs and gamelist.bin to microSD root and insert microSD into Sky3DS+. Insert into 3DS console and use orange buttons to cycle through games.

4. Updating firmware: (Copied from Sky3DS page) Sky3DS+ will come with the newest firmware V100(FIRMWARE_VERSION=100 in the settings.txt, you don't need to do any update at the moment), we will keep it updated on their site if needed.

  • 1.Download the updated firmware.bin from, and copy it into the root directory of

your microSD card.

  • 2.Insert your microSD card into sky3DS+, connect your PC and sky3DS+ with a USB cable(come

with, which can also work as a USB Adapter once connection built).

  • 3.The LED red light will turn on for 10 seconds, then turn to the green light and keep flashing for

10 seconds, once the light turn off it means the sky3DS+ has been updated successfully. Alert: Never unplug the USB cable while the green light keep flashing, it might damage your sky3DS+ card!

  • 4.Delete the firmware.bin file in your microSD card.


No special software is necessary anymore, you can copy-paste just like NDS flashcarts.
