So I'm about to buy a 3DS today, and I obviously don't want to pay alot on games, so I'm going to try and go the piracy way. I tried to inform myself about what exactly is needed to make the 3ds work on homebrew, but everytime I read a new article, it just gets me more confused, so I got a couple of questions. I heard that the current 3ds 'R4' cards cannot play 3DS games, is that true? So the more recent firmwares block the 3DS's 'R4' cards from working. If I buy one from the shop, will its current firmware be old enough? I've seen it around but, is there actually any software-related hack? Such as a custom firmware(Because I would find that more efficient than the R4 card itself)?
