    So i got this brand new 3DS XL, i just installed A9LH and luma3DS. I can now play 3DS games, cool. But then i heard that to play NDS i need an flashcart. My system version is the newest.

    So the question is, does this work with my cfw?

    It should do yes.

    Personally, I think you should buy from nds-card.com its the temps sponsor :) and very cheap ofc. Genuine and reptuable.

    Between insane and insecure
    All the current CFWs have TWL patches pre-installed that allow flashcarts with a header to work and or allow secondary application to launch a flashcart.
    So basically, if it worked on the 3DS at any point, it will work on Luma3DS, SaltFW, Corbenik, and CakesFW nightly.
    I suggest checking out my thread as it does touch on these questions

    tl;dr if a flashcart has worked on a DSi at some point it will work on Luma. So yes.

    Installing .cias hasn't resulted in bans so far unless you went online with a game before the release date e.g Sun/Moon using a leaked version.

    If you use GW/Sky3DS - use private headers and you'll be fine.

    Borrowing this thread for a question that popped into my mind earlier today: Can you go online with the DSi games that are on the flashcart or is that a bad idea (or does it even work in the first place?). Just wondering how should I transfer my old Pokemon from the DSi titles to Pokemon Moon, or should I just give up and edit them in instead with PKHex?

    You can backup your save of your G4/G5 Pokemon game with TWLSaveTool, extract the save and load it up into PkHex then move it over :)
