Hello everyone, now before I say what I was wanting to say. I have read the card charts from here and what the cards do and don't. I just got my 3ds xl, games & all and I am aware that the 3ds is not hacked and won't play roms, The dstwo I am interested in because it does quite a bit, one I like is that it bypasses updates (i think), I wanted to play my old ds games on it without the bulk of carrying around all the cartridges. I don't really need snes/gba emulator as I can play those elsewhere. here is several questions i have: If the 3ds is eventually hacked to play 3ds games, will it be implemented in an update to the dstwo or will a new card be created just for that? In the meantime if I were to get a dstwo or r4i gold or regular r4i & still want to play my 3ds games, does the 3ds require forced updates to play 3ds games (like psp had with their games)? cause I read that updates make some flashcards unusable. Does the r4i gold & dstwo playable and updated with every 3ds update or depending on the firmware the cards are rendered useless? So I just want to play my ds games & be able to play my 3ds games for the time being. Would it be wise to invest in the dstwo or get the r4i gold, don't need a lot of stuff as stated but the "boot, updates without new hardware" on the dstwo intrigues me but i really don't know what that means lol. Sorry if I sound all over the place, not trying to disrespect and waste anyones time. I have searched through the internet to try and find the answers but didn't find it. Thanks in advance.
