    I recently heard somewhere that you could get from eShop free. You have t jail break your 3ds or something, but I don't have more info than that. Does anyone else?

    You can get pokemon shuffle, rumble world, and some other games for free from the eshop, check nintendo's website for all the information.

    Nintendo's website? Why would they give away free games?

    Because they have micro-transactions inside them, if you want to make more than 2 moves in an hour, you need to buy hearts in pokemon shuffle.

    I haven't checked out how it works in rumble world yet.

    Oh. I haven't heard of .cias. Why? I have heard of people jail breaking their 3ds, but I don't know how. Can I get info on that?

    You'll need a 3DS with a firmware of 9.2 and bellow and someone who has a GW card to install the cia files for you.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    there is no "jailbreaking" on the 3ds. and thats an awfull term...

    i am gonna keep this simple since you don't seem interested on reading and lack knowledge..

    for get pirated 3ds games you must purchase one of theese cards:

    1. sky3ds http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=564
    2. gateway http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=501

    gateway is the best one, but requires you to have a old console firmware (iirc max 9.2) and if your firmware is higher than 4.5 you need to purcahse another game to install the exploit

    sky3ds. works on any firmware. you can only have 31 games on the card and must use a phisical switch on the card to change them...

    before purchaching one of thoose cards, please go search about them. there are thousans of topics on gbatemp about them

    IF YOU JUST WANT PIRATED DS GAMES its much more easy. you can purchase this card: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    or other r4 compatible with the 3ds

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if you really looked into all of them, you would know 3 things:
    what is a .cia
    that you require a gateway card to install them.
    and that your 3ds firmware can't be superior than 9.2

    "lack of knowledge" is not an insult. just means you are presented with new stuff which you need to learn about.

    i am trying to help you, if you gonna be an ass. you can just use google to know how to "jailbreak" a console...

    HELL
    To put things simply, you need a third party cartridge if you are planning on doing any of that. You've got to have a 3DS running older software, too. Don't wanna be that guy, but don't ask for links to .cia files or anything like that here. It isn't the place. You want eShop games, pay for them. A lot of them actually deserve it. A hand full of them are legally Free2Play, meaning you download them for free and pay for add-ons and stuff, but again only a handful are like that. No zelda games either. Right now the majority of F2P games are just pokemon games.

    Also, I agree with what others have said. "Jailbreaking" is a terrible term for what we can do on 3DS and DS systems. Especially since a lot of the things that we can do are on a physical cartridge, not on the system itself (like how jailbreaking an iPhone actually modifies the software and doesn't require extra hardware).
