    Im just wondering if you could use the Emulator on DS and use it on 3DS like Snes Emulator , Mobile Java Emulator and GBA Emulator for DSi... for the DSi's GBA Emulator i know the Emulator will use the Extra 16MB Ram of the DSi but what about the 3DS??

    I believe if you manage to run DS homebrew on a 3DS, it will strictly run in DS (only) mode, not even DSi.
    So all the extra processing power, memory etc. are just ignored.
    However it has been shown a few months ago that some DS homebrew was somehow running slightly faster on the 3DS, but that was related to the processor timing and emulation cycles or something like that, not really useful.

    To confirm, flash carts only run in DS-mode on the 3DS, period.
