hi, i have a 3DS MAX updated to the latest firmware. Currently i'm using 3DS games and DS games using the 2 specific R4 cards. But i would like to play GBA and GB/GBC games too. I know that the only way is to hack it. I suppose I have to follow this guide: https://3ds.hacks.guide/get-started
I have a couple of questions:
1) after havinh hacked the console, is there any risk to be banned? I'm using in the Nintendo eshop the same account i'm using in every Nintendo console (Switch, Wii U, nintendo 3DS) so i have to absolutely avoid to be banned!

2) After the hack, how can i play GBA and GB/GBC games? I suppose that i will be able to play 3SD and DS games too, without using the cards anymore. But is it necessary to install some emulator like Retroarch in ordert to play games for all the Nintendo portable console? If so, is there a good guide to install Retroarch and configure it?

thank you

1) No, you won't be banned unless you cheat online. You can play pirated games online too with no risk of being banned.
2) There are multiple ways. You can use a VC Injector (https://gbatemp.net/threads/discussion-new-super-ultimate-injector-nsui.500376/ is what I'd recommend) to use the official Nintendo emulators for any rom, (this injector also supports fan-made emulators like mGBA) (the official GBA one having perfect compatibility since it isn't really an emulator, but it has no save states or anything like that), or a standalone emulator like mgba.

hi, thanks!
1) ok, perfect
2) ok, so, first of all i have to follow the long procedure i linked above in order to hack my Nintendo 3DS. After that, i will download from the link you provided me the Release_beta27.zip pack that includes the emulators. Is it available a smart guide that teach me how to install and configure this VC injector in order to load games and use the emulators? Is it possible to play N3DS and DS games too with this injector or it is necessary to continue to use the 2 R4 cards?

thank you!
