    One question requires one answer,

    Can we play/back-up/store 3DS games on a hacked 3DS?

    If so, how do I do that?

    Flashcards are the only way to play 3DS ROMs at the moment, but they only work on consoles with a firmware version 4.1 through 4.5. You can see all the 3DS flashcards here. There is no way to play ROMs on consoles with a firmware above 4.5.

    OK. I came to know the flashcards hacks are cool. So you guys using flashcards as gateway or raigold 3ds..whats your suggestions?

    has it been hard to set-up the flashcards and whatnot to play some games?

    My suggestion is the Gateway. As far as ease of setup, it depends on your ability to follow instructions with pictures. Check it out yourself: http://gateway-3ds.com/

    If your firmware is already 4.1-4.5, you don't need to buy a game to update the firmware.

    if the 3DS is already at 4.1-4.5, you don't need an original game.

    Yes, as long as the firmware is between 4.1 and 4.5.

    Well, the 3DS doesn't play discs at all, so... yes, by design.
