    I have a 3DS with Luma and A9, a DS Lite, and a TTDS.
    I placed the TTDS kernel in my SD, and my TTDS doesn't boot in my DS Lite, nor in my 3DS.
    If I recall correctly, Luma and A9 grantes acces to old DS Flashcarts... right?
    Or do I need to install a .cia in order to make it recognizable... or a special kernel for my TTDS?

    Now, sometimes (without the TTDS kernel) my TTDS appeared in my 3DS as a blank DS cart with no banner, but since I didn't had the TTDS Kernel installed on my SD, I never bothered to see if it worked.

    Now that I have a DS Lite, I want to use many Homebrew apps for DS in both my DS Lite and my 3DS.

    I came here for help, because I just googled and I couldn't find any information about what do I need.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that I have already tried apache thunder's... stuff... and it doesnt work for me.

    It only enables DS flashcards that were blocked on some 3DS update. If it never was able to run on the 3DS, not even Luma will read it.

    AAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah... that explains it.
    Well... I have a "R4iSDHC for 3DS".
    I'll try that.

    But hey, do I need to install a .cia in order to make the R4 work?
    That one gave me troubles when trying Apache thunder's stuff. Out of 10 times I inserted the Flashcart, I was able to load it just ONCE.

    Nah, just put it and it should pop up and run just fine. Sadly, I discovered this after buying the time bomb R4i from r4isdhc.com. Could've just used my old Acekard 2i instead.

    You could also wait for TWLoader to have ROM compatibility and run NDS ROMs without a flashcard at all. Also, thanks for posting on this thread, @nechigawara. Finally got those links in your signature back.

    Hmmm... I will try them.

    But hey, I think that... it'll be useless.
    My TTDS is not even working in my sister's DS.

    I changed the kernel already, changed the SD and nothing.
    I guess that I'll buy another TTDS later. And of course I will look at NTR Launcher and R4 Stage 2.

    Does anybody knows how to open a Flashcard? :creep:

    Just pry off each side of the flashcard. You could try to install YSMenu.

    I... I don't want to play DS roms, it may sound like complete bullshit, but I truly don't want to load DS roms.
    I'm doing it mostly for Homebrew Apps.
    But thanks anyway, it's good to know that there's still someone working on that.

    Yes, YSMenu... I never liked that one. Again, YSMenu just gives more ROM's compatibility. I don't want to play commercial roms.
    Just Homebrew.

    Oh, then just use TWLoader. At this moment, it can boot homebrew apps.

    Yes! This was also part of my doubt.
    There's so many options out there... I mean...
    NTR Launcher, R4 Stage 2, and now TWLoader...

    Which one should I use... I mean, wich one is better? I guess it depends on the flashcard?

    Flashcard? TWLoader will be able to run ROMs by itself, but is also a shortcut to load a game located on your flashcard.

    Just put your homebrew in a NDS folder inside your 3DS' microSD and run them using the TWLoader. No flashcard needed.

    I really, really need the flashcart.
    The Homebrew that I'm interested requires many space just to hold the required files and the things that I want to make with them.
    This is why I insist in having a working Flashcart.
