SKY3DS+ is the new 3ds flashcard which pretend the genuine Nintendo N3DS/3DS cartridge using the cartridge emulation. It is completely firmware-independent, which means it can always support the latest 3DS console firmware version. In this post, we will introduce you what is the change for SKY3DS+(SKY3DS PLUS) orange button.
There four different parts on the design between sky3ds+ orange button and sky3ds blue button. The first improves the customers’ experience. As we all know, there is only a one game-changing blue button which will cost much time on switch games if you have placed plenty of games on your card. The new sky3ds+ has two orange button which allows you to change games in two sections(Forward/Backward). This change also decreased game-switching time and make it faster for uses to find games they want to play.
The second change is that there is a Micro USB connector on the side of card which makes the device work as a portable SD card reader. Uses can use it to update on-board firmware,which can also avoid any future AP checks from Nintendo. The transfer speed of the connector is much slow and please just use it to edit settings and update the firmware. If you want to place the large files such as ROMs, please use the card reader which is fastter.
The third change is that there is not need to use DiskWriter utility and templates writing games. As the filesystem was switched to standard FAT32. What you need to do is copy the ROMs to your MicroSD card. And the maximum filesize supported by FAT32 is 4GB, and the few games which is larger than 4GB can be easily trimmed and applied with sky3ds+.
The last change is the most powerful one- the Sky3DS+ now uses a rewritable firmware chip which means sky3ds team can circumvent any new Anti-Piracy measures in the futures from Nintendo.
