    It's very unlikely to happen.

    Anyway, DS flashcards are very cheap nowadays.

    No one would make an emulator for ds on 3ds, it's a waste of time, when they can make something like nintendont to use the hardware and play games perfectly. Flashcarts are 15$ so no one will make it either way.

    Yeah, no point in emulating ds on hardware that can run them natively.

    Hate to break it to you, but some people do things simply because they can (either as a proof of concept, or out of sheer boredom). Also there's a good number of people out there that aren't particularly fond of supporting flash cart companies, so that actually adds more fuel to the fire. You're right that we're more likely to see some sort of altered way of simply running the games natively though, as opposed to outright emulation.

    Cheap DS Flashcards are not a reason to not make an DS Backup Loader, It's about advanges on the 3DS Scene and not only piracy.

    I agree with you guys. I also wish there was an nds loader that can be installed as cia or something that launches .nds files, I'm just not optimistic that it will ever be accomplished, although the poster above is right when he says people do things just because they can. There is little hope but there is hope none the less.

    If you are too poor to be a pirate($10), then you are too poor to risk the life of your console with running unsigned code.

    Saw your age in your profile so it's understandable that you would not have a credit/debit card at your age but maybe there is someone you know, family member or otherwise that wouldn't mind making online purchases for you.

    I had a storebought PC from like 2010 that can run a DS emulator. Im sure anything you have will be able to.
