    I just got a 2DS in the mail. I plan to order a flash card.

    I'd like to play the Mario Kart game included. But it wants me to update to download it. Not sure i want to update before I decide what to do. Will this work for that?

    As far as flash cards go.. Cubic Ninja Pasta CFW, Gateway 3DS, Sky3DS... What's my best option?

    Also, i'd like to get a DS mode cart. The R4i 3DS RTS seems to ship with a firmware that works on 3DS V9.4.0-21RTS out of the box. Will i be able to update it VIA a 2DS on 9.7 (If i update)? Or will i need a DSL (Don't have one) to do that ? :/

    If you only want to play Mario Kart you can use NTR CFW with firmware spoofing to download the update.

    I am not sure about DS mode cart..

    That only works on n3DS though. If he had the browser he could use the browser version of the FW spoof, but it's not included with 2/3DSes out of the box.
    GW relies on the browser, so it won't work.
    NINJHAX relies on the browser, so it won't work. By extension, PastaCFW won't work either.
    BUT he can use another 3DS on <= 9.2 that has the browser installed in order to install NINJHAX (or get someone else to send him a save with NINJHAX already on it then he can flash it with a save dongle)

    Pretty much your only option is to get Cubic Ninja and install NINJHAX using another console (or ask someone to send you a savefile with it installed and use a save dongle to flash the save to your cart) because of what I mentioned above. Once you have that, you can run PastaCFW, update your system/install browser with CIAs and use GW if you want. PastaCFW is plenty good enough though, no need for GW anymore :)
    I wouldn't bother with the Sky3DS either, their support is crap, the build quality is crap, and it's too expensive. PastaCFW is much better (plus free)

    The gateway includes a ds flashcart. The only downsite is that you need the browser to use the red card. You can also use the pasta cfw, but it require cubic ninja (for now). Anyway, don't update past 9.2.

    2DS != N3DS. eShop spoof will still accomplish what's stated for but NTR isn't the means. See this thread.

    If your Mario Kart is a legit cart, none of them are needed, see above.

    If you want "other" things, it's down to what's available. If you can easily get a copy of Cubic Ninja then you can work with Pasta or just the "legit CIAs" floating around that don't need hacks to run. Past that it's Sky if you want the Cubic Ninja method without Cubic Ninja or to play on latest firmware (for now, and invalidating the previous statement). Gateway if you want EmuNAND for various reasons such as 9.4+ eShop titles.

    For DS mode, the cart is up to the cart, really. My DSTWO could be updated from a 3DS, but the one in question may not or may already just work anyway.

    OLD 3DS METHOD

    Download the code.bin
    Copy it to the root of your SD card
    Launch the web browser
    Clear cookies and history
    Go to loadcode.projectpokemon.org
    Wait for the load bar and the message "failed to load" to disappear
    Press Home
    Done !

    Then what? just access the eshop? I only mentioned Mario cart because id like to access the game (I have nothing else to play) without updating before i figure out if im going to buy a sky3ds or try pasta.
