Sky3ds supports 3ds games with the new AP checks via Smealum’s Hans

The latest Ninjhax 2.5 from Smealum is a good tool for sky3ds card. We can play newer 3ds games with Nintendo’s New Anti Piracy check by sky3ds for now. Cited news from a member in gbatemp forum.

Sky3ds supports Legend Of Zelda Triforce Heros​ and more

Smealum’s new HANS application, meant for ROM Hacking, New 3DS CPU tune-ups, Language changing and more, bypasses Nintendo’s New Anti Piracy check.

This check was implemented on Newer 3DS games, effectively and indirectly killing Sky3DS’s compatibility with these games.

Some Games That Were Affected By This Are:
  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer​
  • Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon​
  • Legend Of Zelda Triforce Heros​

Gateway users were quickly accommodated by this, as the firmware is easily upgradable.

I have tested this with my Sky3ds and the Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer JPN ROM (t o which I own the USA version)

No matter what, after this step, you should have a file named boot.3dsx placed at the root of your SD card.


Make sure your 3DS’s wifi connection is enabled and connected to the internet (this is important!). Then insert SKY3DS to 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS and switch to the game CUBIC NINJA. Start CUBIC NINJA on your console, choose “Create”, then “QR code”, and finally “Scan QR code”.

If your 3DS system is 10.2,0-28U, you can scan this pic directly. This step might take a couple tries; make sure you fill up as much of your 3DS’s screen with the QR code. If scanning the QR code returns to menu with an error, try a few more times.


Follow the on screen instructions. Choose “Yes” on all options.  You may choose not to install the exploit to your gamecard’s savedata, though doing so is not recommended.
