I'm in a somewhat similar situation to DarthStorm, but different enough that I figured I'd make an account to ask. I've combed through all kinds of contradictory and outdated information and I want a straight answer before I dedicate myself to actually spending money on a product that flat out won't work because I missed something. Figured I'd ask in here instead of starting a new thread because, well, this seems like the place I should ask. I want to use a flashcart for DS stuff on my 3DS. My 3DS is updated to the latest firmware as of this post (10.7.0-32U) because I basically decided to look into this just a couple days ago and am a dumb. I would rather not attempt any hardware alterations or force downgrades unless I have to, and I'm willing to wait for new flashcart firmware as long as I have to (as long as it's actually coming out :V). Far as I've seen, I might be able to get away with picking up an R4i Gold/R4iDSN as long as I'm willing to wait for a firmware update, but far as I can tell the firmware hasn't been updated in quite a while (assuming I've been looking in the right places). I do have an old shambling wreck of a DS Lite that should be able to run updates, but a handful of the buttons are kinda in iffy condition so it isn't great for actual gameplay. My question is: Am I just being crazy? Should I just give up and shell out the extra money for a flashcart that's designed ground up for 3DS stuff, or can I make this work? Or have I updated too far and there's no turning back without downgrading or buying a new system?
