  1. Hi, I did all the steps that you have mentioned but when I insert my Sky3ds+ into my console, there was no game showed. May I know why?

  2. Hello,
    The download link for is not working, where else can I download it?

  3. Can you make a link of the actual download please if you have it saved. The website does not seem to be working at the moment, thanks!

  4. I have completed all the steps required and I have gotten some games to work. However when the sky 3ds generates a settings file (which I have to insert the card into a 3ds to get) the version is apparently 112. Am i doing something wrong? or has the card been updated?

      1. I had the same problem. I downloaded the v130 again, and tried again, and it still the settings file say v112. This time , no red lamp blinked. Only green, and then it opened the map. No red light like it did first time.

      2. Oh It works now! I had to delete the Settings file after the update, then put the Sky3ds plus card into the 3DS, then play a little, then it generated a new Settings file, and it says v140 now. Thank you.

  5. Hi there,

    seems like the download link for the latest sky3ds+ firmware isnt working for me, v130.
