    hi,

    can we install and use ds and GBA games from eshop/freeshop on a9lh sysnand without a problem on latest luma?

    I never used them on my emunand machine because of double install. but since I am on a new N3DS with Sysnand now, I guess things are easier, right?

    best wishes!

    Yes, it works without problems as long as your TWL_FIRM/AGB_FIRM are not modded.

    For gba games you can eather use a emulator or inject them to the sysnand.As for ds games you still need a r4 card.

    Better say it, you can't really install DS games yet but DSi games work well.

    thanks to everyone for helping me out.
    to summarize: on my freshly installed Sysnand (a9lh + luma) machine
    1. GBA games work just fine installed with freeshop?
    2. DS games won't work without a flashcard?
    3. DSi games will just work fine using freeshop?

    Yes, yes, and yes, but ds rom loading is suoer close, though not quite there. If you want to follow the progress, i'd suggest getting twloader and turning on auto updates.

    I still have my old DS for that matter (that can play gba games as well using the special cartridge), but DSi sounds funny. are there any good DSi exclusives?

    what if I accidentally open eshop instead of freeshop. will all my tickets be deleted automatically and I have to reinstall the games?

    It installs every ticket dumped on the titlekyes site to your nand, making the eshop thinj you own everything. This allows you to download games from the eshop and dlc within games for free. The only exception is in app purchases in free to play games. Heres a link https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-tikshop-install-tickets-and-launch-the-eshop.437238/

    If you install a dlc cia, it deletes when accessing the eshop due to you not having the ticket. Though installing every ticket fixes this issue. And this only happens with dlc

    so tikshop is the far better solution. but will it junk up my 3ds with all those hundreds of tickets installed?

    Nope, the eshop takes 10 more seconds to boot up, but it's completely unnoticeable besides that.
