    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a simple topic to answer some simple questions: "Is there any progress?", "When will the 3DS be hacked?" ....

    There are two main hacks:
    • Hardware: Flashcart companies focusing (mostly) on piracy and ROM playing,
    • Software: Legal and open sources releases from community hackers and developers, focusing on Homebrew.

    Hardware

    A few flashcarts for the 3DS have been released:
    • Gateway 3DS
    • R4i 3DS Gold DELUXE
    • 3DS Link
    • Orange 3DS
    • MT-Card
    • Sky3DS
    They can play the currently dumped 3DS ROMs, but no (3DS) homebrew.

    All other flashcarts are NDS Flashcarts which can only play normal DS ROMs on the 3DS.

    More info: Comparison of Nintendo 3DS Flashcarts.
    You are encouraged to read the FAQ and the stickied topics which already contains all the answers.


    Software

    Software based solutions allow for playing 3DS homebrew, but can not load ROMs. There are currently 2 methods:

    The first solution is to use Fierce Waffle's ROP Loader.

    Homebrew development and release thread.

    The second method is by using smealum's Ninjahax exploit. You can find more about it here


    Emulators

    There are no emulators which play 3DS ROMs. Any 3DS emulators you find are fake.
    There are emulators which emulate the ARM chipsets and let you load some 3DS homebrew (and maybe 0's key re-signed ROMs).
    - Citra
    - 3DMoo
    - TronDS


    That is all the available information at the moment.
