    I was looking for the 3DS part because I don't know how to use cheat codes for Pokemon X and Y, and other 3DS games. The second part of it was so I could play older games like Pokemon Platinum and New Super Mario Bro's for the DS, as well as use cheat codes for them. I heardthat the DsTwo is a good choice, but I looked at this page (http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/3DS_Flashcart_Comparison) and I'm still confused...

    This (https://gbatemp.net/threads/which-flash-cart-should-i-get.290097/) was the actual page that confused me, the other one just confused me more

    Sorry for the lame question, I have A9LH + Luma (7.0.1) on 3 systems all on 11.4. I am asked to update to 11.5 for online features. I don't really have time to update all 3 of these to B9S this weekend. So long story short; am I creating any extra work for myself by being on 11.5 with A9LH versus 11.4 when I get to switching to B9S?

    What would the be the best Flash Cart to play DS games and use cheat codes with them? And by DS games I mean a LOT of different kinds. From all the Pokemon games to all the Mario games for the DS.

    Are you using Luma with b9s? If so you can update.

    Nope the process will be the same. If you're on less than Luma 7.0.5, update your arm9loaderhax.bin to that before updating the system (otherwise it might boot to a black screen).

    the DSTwo is a good card but it is not as good to get as the R4i 3DS Gold for these reasons:
    1. Costs more
    2. Drains your battery when inserted even if not being used
    3. It can play GBA and SNES games but that's not really an advantage because you can play these with CFW. It would only really be useful if you were using a DSi or DS.

    You can cheat on 3DS games using NTR.

    I'm working on getting Homebrew and Luma on my friend's N3DS, but he's on 11.4. I already have Freakyforms and can access Homebrew that way, but I need to actually install it (with FBI) so he doesn't have to use the game every time he wants to do something. The problem is, to use FBI you need a kernel backdoor like udsploit, but udsploit was patched on his firmware. Any pointers?

    Since your 3ds already have cfw, you can install cfw to your friend's 3ds using the dsiware transfer method. https://3ds.guide/installing-boot9strap-(dsiware)

    Edit: sorry I assumed you already have CFW, but if you do, that guide will get you through your dilemma.

    @CyanideSmile beware of using DSiWare hax to install CFW on your friend's machine - if you both have NNIDs, they will become stuck together and you won't both be able to get your NNIDs back without calling Nintendo (who may or may not grant your request to separate them).

    Unfortunately following that guide means you’ll have to system transfer from a CFW 3DS to your friend’s and all the current content on your friend’s console will be gone. It a bit of a hassle saving all relevant data before the system transfer because you’ll need to first run Homebrew on his 3DS and backup all save files with JKFM. Mii plaza and other system setting can’t be backed up though, so he’ll lose them.
    Then your NNID will be stuck on his console after the transfer and you’ll have to call Nintendo to unlink it and be able to re-link it to your console. And prior to this you will have to format your friend’s 3DS in order to unlink his NNID, otherwise he won’t be able to re-link it to his console after system transfer and he will have to pay anew for all the games he bought from the eShop.

    TL;DR: if you have a 3DS with stock FW 11.4 or above and want to install CFW, you will definitely lose some data, potentially all, unless your prepared to do a lot of side work. You’d better either have a fresh (I.e. empty) 3DS you want to install CFW to or just wait for ntrboothax.
