    If I flash my 3DS and use back ups of my 3ds games, will the 3ds games be emulations of the originals or would they be the native software games?

    If you use CFW or flashcard then it's native and perfect !

    Using backups is the same as using the original copies, if that's what you mean.

    Oh, ok...so the back ups are not roms? Typically, like for mame, roms are emulation of the original game.

    what you call roms are basically the game files
    thoses files need to be read correctly by a system
    emulation is when you use a software to read a game that is not designed to be run on the system you have
    but if you use the rom on the system it is designed for it is not emulation
    so 3DS roms on 3DS arent emulation

    you can only use Roms which are .3ds format files if you have a flashcart, if you have a Custom Firmware you need to install the games in your 3ds sd card using a .cia file of the game and an application to install it like fbi. in both cases the game runs natively.

    Generally, if a console plays a game natively, then it is native, otherwise it is emulation (like PC playing 3DS). Whether it is a legit copy or a backup shouldn't make a difference.
