    Background:
    It's been a while since I've been involved in flashcarts. I had an Acekard 2i for my NDS and it worked pretty well.

    Now, I find myself wanting to play some of the 3ds games that I've missed over the past few years (Professor Layton, Ace Attorney, Mario and Luigi and Mario Kart rank high up on my list..)

    I haven't kept informed on the status of 3ds carts, but it seems like it's not as easy as just buying the cart, loading the games and playing (that might be based on outdated info.. maybe things have advanced since I last took a quick look).

    So can someone fill me in on point me to current information on what the status of everything is? What's the best hardware I can buy to make this as easy as possible? Is there anything I need to look out for/avoid?
