    The only ones are either dead or NO$GBA (and I think NO$GBA has an option for using raw saves if I remember correctly).

    Clarified some wording, and added the difference between firmware and the menu/OS.

    yes some flashcards such as the SCDS2,Acekard 2i, iEvolution M3i Zero and Acekard 2i work on the 3DS

    The recommended flashcart to get for a 3DS is the DS2 or Ak2i

    Updated the wording in the softmod question to indicate that sudoku was patched.

    Added the question on changing the flash cart's reported game icon.

    found typo in this part

    Picking A Flash Cart

    Q - How do I know which flash cart to get?
    A - There's many things to take into consideration, such as what you plan to do, which DS model you have, how much money you're willing to spend, and if you care about special/addon features. If you check the Qhich Flash Cart Should I Get? sticky you'll find info on the modern flash carts, but if you're confused about a few of them or have other questions feel free to ask. Please make a thread about a flash cart you find before you buy it, because there's many many "clones", fakes, and knockoffs out there.

    I ask about FlashMe. Sure, I do not see the need for FlashMe now, but does that not coount to be a soft-mod?

    I honestly do not believe that people coming here to look to "hack" their DS care about that.

    You just said it wasn't firmware, then go on to refer to it as firmware. You should probably change that so its less confusing for n00bs.

    And I don't think many people are going to care about FlashMe either. It's not need for slot-1 cards and has limited value even for slot-2 cards IMO. You can get a NoPass pretty cheap these days (Datel's MAX Media Launcher does the job and costs £5 from the UK Codejunkies online store), and if you have one of those its not hard to stick it in when you want to use your slot-2 card. You'd need it to install FlashMe anyway. The other functions of FlashMe (brick protection, removing health screen) aren't really worth it either, as the brickers aren't publicly available and the health screen isn't worth a potential brick over removing.

    Whoops. XD That was a leftover before I split that into separate sections.

    That's not what is written on the FAQ. Where did you get that?

    He was just asking it since this is an FAQ thread.

    No, not inherently. If you bought a $20 4GB card and then a $20 8GB card and the 8GB one was slower, it was probably a cheaper-built one. Pay attention to the class and brand and such.

    This is a very informative FAQ here. I should send it to some of my friends, as they seem to repeatedly ask these questions. I just hope they don't end up asking me to fix the sudokuhax so it works again or modify their SD Card slot (if they have a DSi) so they can play backup ROMs.

    I should really get them "Nintendo DS for Dummies" or something. They're the type of people who think the slot-1 is an SD Card slot, no matter what you tell them, until they actually try to fit an SD Card into that slot. Heck, I've still got at least one friend who thinks he's the authority on NDS hacking just because he learned how to patch with Lunar IPS.

    I beg you to shoot your friends. Being a noob is fine, being an idiot is another thing entirely. These are the people holding back humanity.

    I can't shoot them! I'm not done with them yet!

    But in all seriousness, they're getting better, but it's still ridiculous.. I could have a whole thread about the stupid stuff my friends do with their DS's.

    Edit) Hey, there's an idea. I think I'll do that.

    Make a blog thread about it. You could post anything in Blogs.
