    I know you can get like free games and stuff but, will it void your warranty or anything?

    As long as it's a cheap one; Yes. It is worth it.
    Shouldn't have any negative effects.

    Ohhh, I don't know how many are fixed on 10.0. Best to do some research before diving in. (I have 9.9)

    GW is not updated yet, which probably means no other flash cart is either (except sky of course.)

    TubeHax and ironhax works apparently

    The only flashcard that will work for 3ds roms on that firmware is Sky3ds, and you won't be able to play some really new games with it. For DS games (and SNES, NES, gb, gbc, gba) you'll need a DSTwo (R4s will be cheaper but may not work and can't play SNES or gba very well or at all)

    OP, the flash cart that you want for 3DS games is the Sky3DS. Do NOT wait for Gateway or Custom Firmware support for 10.0 because it just won't happen any time soon, if ever. However, if you want to play your games online you will need a private header which you can get from a physical game using this thing called a Powersave tool that you can get on Amazon for about 15 bucks. That should be everything that you need.
