    What version? If you are on 11.2 or below, you can by a game by game basis. The compatibility is not great at the moment but is actively being worked on. I know from memory all major Pokemon games are not compatible but will likely be in the future.

    The best and cheapest way to play most DS backups right now is to buy a cheap DS flashcart.

    Edit: Also, you say you installed soundhax on your 2DS. Does that mean you installed A9LH and Luma3DS?

    There's no way to play HeartGold/SoulSilver with CFW alone. One requires a DS flashcart, with or without CFW.

    You should follow this guide to install A9LH and CFW if you haven't done so already.

    This is the official sponsor of GBATemp, but there are other reputable and comparable websites out there.

    It should be noted that CFW can be used to play 3DS game backups, and it's highly recommended that you install A9LH and CFW before you accidentally update your 3DS.

    I personally have a supercard dstwo. it's never given me any problems on either the ds or the 3ds. there r cheaper alternatives out there though.

    Any of the DSi flashcarts advertised to work with 3DS version 11.2/11.3 are your best options. The R4i flashcarts can be found for as cheap as $8.99, for example.

    If you don't care how much you spend, the Supercard DSTWO is the best one. However, it's pricey and not really needed.

    You can trade and whatnot on all of the DSi flashcarts. They're all pretty much the same.
