    I'm not gonna get much use out of this but at least I know I don't need my old Action Replay anymore. Good work!

    It got annoying trying to jerk the AR device in a 3DS to make it work, even in a DSi, the boot rate was never 100% for me. So this is pretty cool.

    Very cool! Will this work at all with a DS flash card though, or do you need to have the official DS carts?

    Don't forget, that you currently need dev Luma3DS 6.0 or newer CFW and patched TwlBg.cxi before you can use this. So if you get the fat init failed error you don't have patched dev launcher yet. More on that here:

    Maybe. It won't find codes to a flashcart though. Not sure it will even allow you to boot it in it's current form. But if it does, you can use this to boot a flashcart. but the cheats won't work because of the flashcart.

    Need official carts. If u have flashcart use ysmenu to get cheats which is easier...

    The cheat.dat files used by flashcarts are not in a format NitroHax can use. I haven't looked at them though so I could be wrong. I doubt it though. Also note NitroHax can't use a cheat.xml file that is 2.5MB or higher in size due to ram limits. ;)

    So if you provided your own XML and NitroHax crashes back to Home Menu, that's why. If it's too large, strip out games you don't use.

    Nice work! The last few days have been a ride. At this rate flashcards will be obsolete by Christmas! Keep it up!
