    Is there a DS-Mode exploit/hb method that works on DSlite, DSi or 3DS without hardware?

    I would use a flashcard, but I have lost it.

    That is not really a helpful answer.

    You have a point, but I am asking if there is a non-hardware exploit/method.

    There is no letterbomb for the ds, and the hardware is not really an exploit.

    There was for the DSi, you needed to have downloaded a sudoku game from the DSiware shop, and run some sort of exploit. My understanding is that this was quickly patched, and I'm not sure if it ever actually amounted to much of anything. Even still, if this exploit did still work, you wouldn't be able to use it on the 3DS, its restricted to the DSi is my understanding.

    It is the only answer that there is tho. There is not DS-Mode exploit that can be used without a flashcard.

    Do you have the first version of sudoku, Guitar Rock Tour, Legends of Exidia, or Fieldrunners and a 1.4.1 or less dsi? Then you can run dsi mode homebrew with this. I have the first version of sudoku and sudokuhax so I am happy!

    He's right, DS-i exploit only delivered homebrew, and not a lot, not a game loader.
    DS doesn't has one, and 3DS aswell (DS mode exploit)
    If you want to play DS games, or you get a DS flashcard or you can use a PC emulator.

    There are some savegame exploits for DS games but you have to be able to edit the saves.

    Which uses hardware and then no way to read from the SD card. :-P

    Edit:
    Smea has two Fifa Sploit 2 and Bangai-O sploit.

    The DS doesn't have enough storage to store ROMs anyways. It has only 4MB RAM.

    Yeah, it'd be a problem if you wanted to store normal sized roms in the memory.
