    Hi, trying to run DS roms on my 2DS through a flashcard. The card is the R4i RTS 3DS/DS. First I tried just loading the games onto the root in a ROMS file (no dice), then I download R$i-3DS V1.84, extacted and put the folders onto the SD root, and made a separate Gamaes file. It didn't like that either. I'm not interested in hacking the whole 2DS, just running the roms. How can I do that? Thanks.

    what roms are you trying to load? 3DS or NDS

    what is the website printed on the card. did you get the kernel files required from that site?

    I'm trying to load DS roms. The card is from nds-card.com which is a little tough to navigate. I suppose I could shoot them an email.

    not where you purchased it from, there is a site printed on the label of the card, that site will have the kernel files that you require on the SD Card
