    I recently followed this guide to install arm9loaderhax https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Get-Started.
    Everything worked out for 3ds games.
    I then put in my old DS blue card I got when I purchased an MT-Card back in early 2014.
    My 3DS shows the cartridge is loaded but when I click on the game to load it just goes to a black screen and nothing else happens forcing me to hold down the power button to turn the 3DS.

    Does anyone know what is happening to make it incompatible with my DS blue card and is there a way to fix it?

    I was looking up and found that when update my sysnand from 4.2 to 9.2 it blocked 3ds cards for ds roms.
    I was told bluecardfix.cia would solve the issue if I install it through sysnand but my current setup automatically boots to AuReiNAND.
    I am not sure how I can boot back into sysnand.
    Is there a 3ds card that can play ds games on newer firmware?

    If you have arm9LoaderHax...Skip messing around with DS Cart White list. Just install prepatched TWL_FIRM cia with patches that allow almost all flashcarts to work. (at least ones that don't require launchers. :P )

    I can't link to TWL_FIRM directly so you'll have to search the CFW section of "that one site I can't name" for the thread.
