    Im sorry, but flashcards are not hacking the 3DS. There post's should not be put in the hacking and homebrew topic.
    It annoy's me whenever I come to this forum and it is filled with :I updated and i dont know what to do. :( hacking and homebrew my arse!
    Just make a place for 3DS flashcards :) simple and easy.

    Flashcarts do work on the 3DS in DS mode, do a quick research.
    I believe 'temp did this to accomodate talk about hacking the 3DS. And what do you mean a place for 3ds flashcards, this IS the place.

    I actually agree with the OP. There are too many threads saying 'How to get my AK2i working on 3DS?' or 'Is it safe to upgrade to x firmware?'

    I know they do. This is not the place, if you look in the dsphat/lite section you will see that they have there own place for flashcards. So the 3DS section needs it too!

    But does it really warrant a separate forum thread? For such a new device that's not even fully hacked, that's unnecessary IMO.

    Yes, it does warrant it.

    Well, if you really NEED it so bad, this probably isn't the place to ask for that, you should rather go here: http://gbatemp.net/f...et-discussions/

    What? :blink:

    OT: These threads either need their own section or to be placed in the DS flashcart forum. You could argue this is the correct place but as the OP says, it's not hacking and it's taking over the real use for this forum.

    I agree with OP... It doesn't make sense, especially since the flashcards (which are for the DS, but fixed to work on the 3DS) aren't really hacking or modifying the system. Flashcards are DS-Mode, so they should stay in the DS topic. That, or give flashcards their own legitimate spot somewhere in the forum.

    o lord

    Now, if this is about all the Ak2i/DSTwo/Whatever support threads being here, yes they should be in their own subforum so report them so a mod can move them... but general talk about flash carts and the 3DS is hacking as far as I'm concerned.

    Flash carts are a hard mod that allow you to run unsigned code.

    What, is the whole "Well you didn't make the cart" the aspect for it not being called a "hack"? That's just elitist/pedantic. Getting into details like that, unless you built the hardware yourself (if required for modding) and coded the exploits yourself with your own compiler and everything, it's not a "hack" if you didn't make it. :P I mean if a flash cart isn't a hack, then neither is a pandora for the PSP, or those USB dongles for the PS3, or what's done to 360s with USB drives and flashers and shit.

    The main difference being that for the DS, the internal firmware is not modified, but that's safer (and the internal firmware for the DS/Lite couldn't fit half the crap flash carts want to do anyways and the DSi's internals are untouchable by the masses right now).

    Then yeah, if the issue gets too bad perhaps a sticky could go up? People would likely get better help in the section for their own cart.

    I forgot
    Actually, there is nothing wrong with being a grammar nazi. You can make any argument you want about how "this is the internet lololol i dont need grammer here lolol", it makes you look retarded. I tend to respect people more with good grammar than those without.


    Anyways, on topic, there isn't a need for 7 or 8 different sub-forums for every single flash card ever that work on the 3DS, it'd just clutter up the forums and make everything look bloated. Not only that, but they aren't truly 3DS flashcard so whats the point? We have dedicated sub-forums for flashcards in the DS section but no one tends to use them as often concerning the 3DS and I don't think any of the mods would want to move the 100 threads a day into the appropriate section.
