    Is there a way to convert them in .cia or something that makes it possible to play them without a dstwo or r4 flashcard?
    Im talking about .ds titles, not .dsi to be precise.

    No, and they most likely and fortunately never will be.

    Here we go again the answer is the same as the thousands of other threads we have had on here asking G this question NO NO and No. Next time use the search at the top right of your screen and you would have found all the other threads asking your question

    A few games with DSi extended headers (that are playable in DS mode) like "Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem" can be converted to cia, and installed to HOME Menu, but when running it, it shows an error message.

    Agreed. First, Googling your question is a good way to figure out your answer. Not there? Search for it on GBAtemp to find an existing thread already made that may be similar to your question. If all else fails, then make a new thread.

    Threads like these waste everyone's time and are more susceptible to getting sarcastic remarks from members. Just a little bit of advice for anyone that cares the slightest about forum etiquette. ;)

    So far I have no problem installing dsi and gba roms, by installing them on both emunand + sysnand so that they work.
    Now, if it was in any way possible to make convert a .NDS title to a .DSI or any file that a cfw is ok with, it would be a step further.
    By the way I own a R4 and a DSTWO, but im looking for a way to do without them.
    I must say im intrigued with the dstwo plus, for snes roms to play perfectly but is it powerful enough to run games that pushed the console to its limit? like mario RPG, i would like to know befor paying 50$ for it. I also hear it runs dsi and gba titles smoothly so it would be easier than installing them twice.

    Might be best to have info like this in big bold red letters on the front page so threads like this won't get made all the time.
