    if you want plug n' play feat. with 3ds games. look into sky3ds "blue button" or "orange button"

    bluebutton = older model but supports more than 10+games can't play newer games with AP check.

    orangebutton=can play games that have the new AP check. and does everything the blue button does.

    this card is worth a pretty penny but will do its job. people hate on it now that CFW/a9lh is available . but if it's what you want then so be it. and in all honesty you cant accidently destroy your 2ds with a sky3ds but with cfw if you don't know what you are doing and are "new" like you say then 3ds flash card would probably be your best place to start for beginners then move on to CFW if it's something you might be able to handle... side note sky3ds can be used an as entrypoint for haxin /downgrading with OOT or CUBICNINJA so IMO it's worth it.

    Bruh, some flashcarts dont work in the 2ds...

    Edit:

    Also tell us what firmware is your 2ds, if you are using a r4gold or r4igold, and do you have a regular ds/dsi with you.

    Well that's good news at least.
    Whatever you do, don't update your 2ds until you've hacked your system properly.

    Install this and you get 3ds games and get your DS flashcart working.

    I'd hold back on a9lh for now given your experience level.
