    Hi guys,

    I just found my old 3DS which I haven't used in ages and thought of selling it. But then I thought, hmmm... lets give it a try with hacking it first.

    Is there any way to start up 3DS Roms or emulate DS, SNES & maybe other consoles? There are so many threads, I really don't know where to start.

    Or would be some kind of M4 card be a better option?

    Cheers

    Arm9LoaderHax.
    Follow every step in that guide, and you'll be able to do whatever you want.
    Just remember, DO NOT UPDATE.

    Did you mean "DO NOT UPDATE UNTIL Arm9LoaderHax is installed on the system"?
    Since It could make OP confuse while reading the guide til he/she has to do an update step.

    Right, yes. Updating is fine once A9LH is installed, but also when the community says it's okay.

    You had the right idea! Like you were meant to hack it all along...
