    I have the gateway blue card but it doesnt seem to work at all in my New 3DS which is a lil sad.

    Is there a firmware update for that card that works? Or is there another card that runs OG DS games?

    I get why it doesn't work with you..

    FBI is an open source CIA installer for 3DS. It is not the first one, but so far, it is the one with the best features.

    CIA files allow the installation of titles to the 3DS. Think of them like the .wad files for Wii. FBI lets you install/uninstall them. In the past, the tools that was used for this purpose was Nintendo copyrighted material. Big Red Menu was the first open source/legal CIA installer, but as it came in .cia format, you still had to use a Nintendo copyrighted tool once to install it.

    You can install FBI by using the fbi installer in the homebrew starter kit.

    Ah...so I need custom firmware in my 3DS? There are no DS flash cards that work on the legit firmware? my 3DS is at 11.0.0...so the most recent or darn close to it.

    I recommend you get the R4i Gold RTS (r4ids.cn)
    Link: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    Or the R4i-SDHC (r4i-sdhc.com)
    Link: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=146

    DSTwo or DStwo+ in DS Mode (GBA+SNES Emulation)
    Link: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=135
    The 3DS Mode (Gateway Plugin) on the plus version requires you to be on an exploitable firmware, so forget about using it for 3DS Games if you even consider The Plus version of this card.

    how good is the snes emu on the dstwo+? if its pretty decent that could be an excellent choice. Specifically Megaman X3 if you know.
