    Okay so here's the thing, i got a used old 2ds for a bargain of 50$ here in india. This is a bargain coz the local shops and amazon here sell it for 300$ or more. I am buying it mainly for emulation of gba nds and to play some 3ds only games. I want it to be simple and probably buying a flash cart is the easiest method. So it'd be great if anyone can share some flashcarts that aren't too costly, may be under 30-40$. I tried purchasing sky3ds+, but it's way out of my budget(110$ to be exact).

    Hello and welcome to GBAtemp.

    Almost everybody here will tell you NOT to buy any flashcart for 3DS games. As you already said: They are expensive! And they can do less than free custom firmware and have other downsides. (Plus: You will not find much – if any – help for using them on this site).

    I know the guide https://3ds.hacks.guide/ looks overwhelming and complicated at first. But it is only that long because it is an easy step-by-step guide.
    • By installing B9S and using Luma CFW you get the possibility to install 3DS games directly onto the console SD.
    • For using DS games from SD there is TWiLight Menu++ as a free alternative to a DS mode flashcart. It has become very good lately, but if you prefer a flashcart for DS (non-3DS) games: R4i Gold 3DS Plus (still has some advantages).
    • For GBA games:
      • They can be run natively in AGB_FIRM (Virtual Console injection) (requires CFW)
      • Not yet perfect is GBARunner2 (but it has seen HUGE improvements in the last weeks). GBARunner2 can be used from a DS mode flashcart and from TWiLight Menu++.
    Sorry for so many links, but you should do a good amount of reading before you decide. I personally would advise against the expensive and limited Sky3DS+ or Stargate 3DS.

    Happy reading.

    Thank you so much for the quick response. I read what you said and have just one more doubt. The person i am buying this from says that he plays3ds games in cia format without a flash cart and also uses emulators on the go. He said he has hacked it and that's it.

    But wherever i searched, especially the 3ds guide mentioned above, everywhen either a flash cart or some sort of soldering was involved.

    I just wanna know if its possible or not to play with out a flash cart.

    If it is already hacked, you do not have to repeat the complete guide. And every* 2/3DS can be hacked without soldering and without flashcart. Reading the complete guide is nevertheless a good idea to get familiar with the terms, software and methods.

    Hold (Select) while turning on the 2DS. It should say:
    Luma3DS v??? configuration
    Depending on the version number you may have to update the hacks/custom firmware installation.
    The current Luma version is v9.1.

    Next time put simple questions about 2/3DS CFW into the 3DS NOOB PARADISE – more likely to get fast replies there.
