    As much as I hate it, I'm getting a flashcard.

    R4i-Gold RTS.

    What is all this stuff about updating the kernel of the card or whatever. Can't I just put ROMs on it and play?

    What do I need to do on the 3DS side? I have cfw.

    Put the kernel on it (or YSmenu) and put the roms on the micro sd card (If you want to use forwarders use Forwarder3DS).

    Where would I get the kernel? In the thread below, and just put it on the root?

    What's YSMenu?
