    Every single post you make subtly advertises sky3ds jesus christ This guy is asking what are good CIA's to use that has nothing to do with your shitty product placement.

    @Blocked Name and to your question the only CIA's i've installed personally are
    3DSController
    BigBlueMenu (TitleManager)
    Cubic Ninja
    SaveDataFiler
    Sysupdater
    FreeEshopandRegionPatcher
    and the AGB_FIRM Signature Patch

    3DSController - Lets you use your 3DS as a pc controller for mouse clicks and button binding in emulators like VBA,Desmume or Snes9x etc...
    BigBlueMenu (TitleManager) - Lets you install CIA's to your 3DS
    Cubic Ninja (game) - Useful for loading exploits that require Cubic Ninja
    SaveDataFiler - lets you import/export saves from games
    Sysupdater - lets you update Sysnand/Emunand Using files from 3DNUS
    FreeEshopandRegionPatcher - Self explanatory
    and the AGB_FIRM Signature Patch - Lets you play GBA games on your 3DS while in Sysnand

    DS games only work on flash cards (for now) and yes you can take any gba game and convert it to a CIA that can be installed to your Sysnand (you need to use pasta CFW)

    No you need the blue card or any generic flashcard for the 3DS and yes you need cubic Ninja for pasta CFW but I think the games will run while in Gateway Sysnand mode.

    Yes you can use a cubic ninja CIA for HBL which will let you load Pasta CFW and for the fix you will want to install it using a CIA called Dev Menu (its the official version of title manager) which I can't link here.

    Yes, the blue cart is just for NDS and all the games need to be on the microSD that goes in it.
