    So i was wondering if it will ever be possible to run 3ds games on homebrew using roms off the SD card or like such, (for "educational" purpose) just like on the Wii? The wii had a method that let you run it off with the one homebrew application that let you run games off a external disk.

    Also is will there ever be a way to cheat in the games like on the wii? I remember me playing twilight princess and moon jumping where i shouldn't be at.

    Anyways, thanks.

    This would be very hard to achieve, but remotely possible. Don't plan on it ever happening. You're better off getting a cart like Gateway or Sky3DS, those play all 3DS ROMs fine.

    ayyyy

    Now jokes aside, that's called a kernel exploit and it hasn't been found on firmwares above 9.2

    And it never will be. Just be lucky we have homebrew on 9.9 as it is because once Nintendo releases a firmware update, 9.9 will be the last firmware you can have homebrew in.

    By the way, talk about "emulate" 3ds roms like Wii does is totally inexact, AFAIK. Wii Homebrew that runs ROMs is a Launcher/Loader, not an Emulator.

    Funny, the same was said about 4.5, and yet, 9.2 kernel exploits were found.

    I have been told to keep quiet but I wouldn't say we would never find one, it would just be difficult to find one that works.

    Right now homebrew launcher doesn't have full access to the console. If we did then playing 3DS roms through homebrew would be very more easy. Also I don't think we can do 3DS backup playing right now because the homebrew launcher doesn't have 3D which means it runs like a nds game.

    If a 9.9 kernel exploit was found, I'd be really happy, but I'm not holding my breath for a working one within 2015.

    Me neither, truth be told. I was just remarking that the same has been said before and how funny it was. :P

    Anyways, stranger things did happen before, so... who knows?

    Sky3DS doesn't, it can only run signed games. No edited stuff

    Not possible on anything above 9.2, as others have previously stated.

    The 3DS cannot even emulate GameBoy Advance games that well. Even if it was possible to emulate a 3DS from our 3DS, it probably would not play at all.

    It may be possible if we had full access to the 3DS console.
