    I just bought a DSTwo Plus, and a New 3DS XL. The 3DS is running firmware 9.5.0 -22U. The DS roms, GBA, SNES, NES, and even GB are all running amazing. I am having issues trying to get 3DS roms to show though :(
    I have followed DSTwo Plus's tutorial, every YouTube video I could find, and been looking at fourms for the past couple hours. Can anybody give me some advice? Will my flash cart work? Or should I go with another brand? Alot of people seem to say the Sky3DS+ is pretty simple.
    Thanks so much! I really am looking forward to getting this working.

    Why don't you use CFW?
    It's pretty simple and safe if you follow this guide: https://3ds.guide

    Thank you! I looked into CFW 's and that sounds like a good solution :)

    Can I ask you another question? I successfully installed a CFW and it is working great. I installed some CIAs with FBI and they work flawlessly. However I have tried three different Super Mario Maker CIAs and they install correctly, but when I click to open them it just stays on the black and red Nintendo 3DS screen that plays before a game boots up. So it won't open. Do you have any advice?

    I have 9.5.0 -22U
    If I updated would I lose my CFW?

    NO!

    from the words of the 3ds.guide faq
    Q: Is it safe to update CFW SysNAND?
    A: Yes. This is safe, stop asking about it.

    edit: I personally don't mind if you keep asking though :)

    As @SonicMC said, you should update your 3ds, there's even a step on the guide I gave you that tells you to update it :b

    One of the cool parts about custom firmware is the fact that now you can run any flashcart now with whatever OS your 3DS is now. Just remember to check luma updater and all that for any updates so you aren't missing out on anything. I have a DSTWO+ as well, however I can't use the Gateway feature it uses since I am on 11.6.0-39U, even though I am on custom firmware I don't feel too confident to test it.
