    it does since the gba hardware is also required for ds games which means any nintendo system that plays ds games has gba hardware in it including the 3ds.

    Lol, no, that's not how it works. It is basically so that ds hardware is an extension of gba hardware and I wouldn't doubt that certain parts would be shared, however, there are also parts which are not used for ds at all (sound and the gba bios for example), so if it is not actually used it could be that they did not include it in the chip at all. The gba slot is also stubbed inside the chip. On 3ds gba hardware was specifically included for the purpose of gba vc.

    Nintendo works for my dad
    Just out of curiousity, what do you base this statement on?
    GBA has an ARM7 processor and a Z80 soundprocessor
    NDS/DSLite has an ARM9 processor with a ARM7 subprocessor
    3DS ditches the ARM7 processor and now has an ARM11 core with an ARM9 subprocessor

    Since the 3DS lacks the ARM7 GBA Hardware (Processor wise) it seems to me that the GBA Hardware is not necessarily required for DS games.

    It is not true that the 3ds has no arm7. It still has one. It is needed for the gba vc and nds games.

    You gotta sram patch it, plus find a good quality rom. Use gbata to sram patch your rom. And note that your best way of running it right now is through the second last wramicache version. Just check the gbarunner2 wiki here on gbatemp and you'll find all you need.

    Here's the latest master commit (83108c7, 04/03/2018). I hope it fixes the issues people had with the previous version.

    You could start by telling us what happens when you try to run it. Like the error message you get.

    You could try to rename the file to "gbarunner2" and see if it helps since I found out my ak2i with akaio had a limit of 10letters per filename for homebrew. If I'm not mistaken wood should be related to akaio.

    However it doesn't really make sense that it should help since the other version ran, plus it worked for Gericom.

    For all people having problems on their flashcard I would suggest trying to use srloader. It should be able to boot gbarunner2 right.

    You can use srloader as a replacement for your flashcard menu or something. I haven't tried if for myself, maybe @Zense could tell you how to use it.
