Can someone explain to me the basics of 3DS flashcarting? I've been using flashcarts since 07 on the DS, but the 3DS generation I've ignored until now. I've got my new 3DS XL on pre-order and I'm ready buy a cart now to have ready. I see Sky3DS now supports 9.4U which is a huge plus to me because I have no worries about the flashcart working when I get my 3DS. Its also region free which is nice. I see talk of emunand, and to be frank, I'm not sure what this is. It seems like an emulated nand, but why does this matter? Is this to circumvent update needs for games? Can you still play games that require a newer firmware on an older one with a flash cart? If not, is this for 3DS eShop games, what are the advantages of emunand functionality and what models support it? Is there a certain flashcart to look for quality? I know some older DS flashcarts spring loaded slot for SD cards were crappy, are there any cards that I should avoid in that sense, I don't want a 90 dollar investment going down the drain in a few weeks. Finally do only certain cards support home brew, if at all? I only ask because I was big on cheats on the DS so I could unlock everything in games without having to spend hours and hours. Whats the situation on homebrew and flash carts? I appreciate ANY help with information and decision making, thanks!
