Can I or How to download DLC 3ds roms with sky3ds/sky3ds+?

This is an old question, but still some users feels confusion about this.

As we know sky3ds/sky3ds+ is a line of flashcarts which can pretend that the device(card) is genuine game card, using cartridge emulation to work for all 3ds roms.

(one more word, cartridge emulation is better than software exploits like their competition, which won’t impact the function of your console.)

So we can download the dhl for 3ds roms to work on sky3ds/sky3ds+ as the original card, to get it in normal way from the “dlc” or “additional content” menu in the game or from the Eshop to buy it or for free.

ninjhax 2.0 allows you to run many out-of-region gamecards, as well as use custom themes on your console. It is excited that is can works on the latest firmware9.9.0-26

Requirements of using Ninjhax 2.0

A 3DS console(V9.0-9.9)
A 3DS sd card
A micro sd card
Cubic Ninja ROM or genuine gamecard


1. Go to the page  and enter your 3DS console version, click “update QR code ” and there will be a QR code generated which is compatible with your 3DS.

2. Download “homebrew starter kit” and extract all the files to the rood your 3DS sd card.

3.Turn on your 3DS wifi and connect to the internet.
4.Insert the sky3ds with Cubic Ninja ROM burnt to your 3DS console, bootup your 3DS.
5.Run Cubic Ninja →EDIT→QR Code →QR Code の読取
( When scanning the code, make sure you fill up as much of your 3DS’s screen with the QR code. You may need several times to make it.)
6. After scanning, there will be a notice”instal the exploit to your savegame?” Press A to install it.
7.The homebrew launcher will load.


1. ninjhax won’t run anymore ! I updated my console after installing ninjhax and I can’t access the homebrew launcher anymore. What do I do ?
In this case, all you need to do is clear CUBIC NINJA’s savegame and install the exploit again. To do so, enter CUBIC NINJA’s main menu and hold L+R+X+Y; after a few seconds, a menu will show up asking whether you’d like to clear your savegame. Do it, grab the QR code for your new firmware version and you should be good to go!

2. ninjhax won’t run at all ! I’m getting a red screen after a bunch of text shows up. What’s going on ?
This happens when you don’t have a boot.3dsx file at the root of your SD card. Please follow the install instructions and try again.

3. ninjhax won’t run at all for some other reason ! What am I doing wrong ?
This most likely means you are using the wrong QR code for your console/firmware version. Please double check that you are using the correct version.

4. Can ninjhax be uninstalled ?
Yes. Go to CUBIC NINJA’s main menu, hold L+R+X+Y and follow instructions. This will also erase your savegame. There is currently no way to uninstall ninjhax without losing your Cubic Ninja savegame because it seems noone cares enough about their Cubic Ninja savegame to make one.

5. Does this allow region free ?
It totally does and it’s pretty rad. For more information on the region free feature, please visit regionFOUR’s README page, as the exact same limitations currently apply.

6. Does this let me run roms ?
No. ninjhax is a user mode exploit, meaning that we do not have full control over the console, and therefore cannot run pirated software. That being said, we have the same amount of access as regular apps and games to the console’s hardware, and so we can make some kickass homebrew!

[TUTORIAL] How to play online with ANY Header on Sky3DS!!! No worries about Manufacturer ID, no worry to be banned

Got two method from GBATEMP  for make the template file with your own private header to play online.

Experience 1:

I’ve got a C2 Manufacterer Header by looking up my Rom (Game) at Sky Army Knife using the public Sky3DS Template.

Pokemon X is “AE” Manufacterer as example and the only thing i did is looking up the SHA1 Code from this ROM in Sky3DS Template using Sky Army Knife and change the Manufacterer in your Sky3DS Template from “AE” to “C2” and voila, you can connect without the Error Code.

Experience 2:

After getting my Sky3ds some days ago, I used header from Super Mario 3D Land and patched it using NoBanNoSky. But it didn’t work on any of my games. I used Sky Army Knife and others but they didn’t work too.

So I finally found a way 3 days ago, and was testing many different games- like Mario Kart 7, Super Smash Bros and many others before releasing the way how I did it. IF NoBanNoSky DOESN’T WORK FOR YOU, OR YOU ARE GETTING ERROR 002-0123, THIS IS A TUTORIAL YOU SHOULD FOLLOW. So, lets get started:

Gateway Rom Patcher:
SkyTempIDEdit Command.txt:


1. Download the two files listed above in the downloads section.
2. Make sure you have the private header in a .bin file and a ROM which you are going to add in Sky3ds. If you don’t know how to extract a private header, here is the tutorial:
3. Put both of the files in one same folder.
4. Open Gateway Rom Patcher as an administrator.
5. Click on Load ROM and browse where your ROM is.
6. Click on Import header to file and browse to your private header .bin file
7. You will see 2 warnings, just click Yes to both of them.
8. You should finally have something like this:


Don’t close Gateway Rom Patcher yet!!

9. Now make sure you have the latest template from Sky3DS website. Rename the new template to “template.txt” and make sure it is also in the same folder.
10. Now you should have “SkyTempIDEdit.exe” and “template.txt”in the same folder.
11. Press SHIFT + Right click on SKyTempIDEdit.exe and click “Copy as path”
12. Open up notepad provided in the downloads section and paste it over [Paste the path here without quotations]
13. Copy your “Cart ID”- which is your private header from Gateway Rom Patcher and paste it over [Private header]
14. Copy your “Chip ID” from Gateway Rom Patcher, NOT the FFFFFFFF one on the top but on the bottom like the one I have in the picture C27FFF90
15. Now you should have something like this:
16. On Gateway, click on “Clear header” (Say YES to the Warning) and close Gateway Rom Patcher
17. Click Start and Type/Open “Run” which looks like this
18. Copy everything from notepad and paste it in the run “Open” section.


19. Press OK
20. It will open up Command Prompt, and it will take 2-3 minutes for its process. DON’T CLOSE IT, IT WILL CLOSE AUTOMATICALLY.
21. Once Command Prompt closes itself, you should see a file in the same folder called “new-template.txt”. This is a new template file that you will use in the Diskwriter for your game.
22. Open up DiskWriter, click on Options -> Change Template and choose new-template.txt
23. Write your ROM on the DiskWriter and Play ONLINE!!!

**Remember, this template only works for that one ROM that you chose in the first place. To play online with another ROM, you have to follow all the steps again and make a new template.

Difference between this two method: the second method use gateway patcher to suggest the correct manufacturer and rest (with the chip id settings suggestion), so you don’t have to run around trying to find which game uses which.
