    I did Plailect's guide, but now my DS games don't work. Is there a fix?

    Have you ever installed the patched TWL_FIRM .CIA?

    Actually that has the opposite effect. Luma should patch it automatically and if you have a patched firm installed it causes problems. What actually happens when you try to play a DS game?

    Could you be more specific about how it is broken? Like what are you trying to load, and how does it fail?

    You are still being a bit vague. Do you mean the DS game doesn't show up on the home menu? And if so are you referring to a cartridge or a DSiWare game?

    Did you try multiple carts, and is your DS game icon there (the one that shows up as a blank icon and changes depending on what game is inserted)

    On some games I've had the same issues (in Luma) the DS game doesn't even show up on the home. Menu often, and when it does it can randomly crash the 3DS. In my case the worst offender is Dragon Quest IX

    Wait so you don't have even the blank icon where the game should come up, like this:

    Then I would definitely try other carts. It may be an issue with your cart. If it does work with other carts, and based on input from @Tigran maybe Luma could be giving problems. I would try making sure you are running the latest version of Luma (an actual release, not a nightly) and if that doesn't fix it then I would try other CFW to see if any of them fix the problem like SaltFW.
    It could also just be a cartridge going bad...

    @TheCyberQuake Said DS game does work in an unmodified 3DS and one that had retools on it.

    However other games -DO- work. So I wonder if it's something to specific games.

    What is this cartridge? Is it R4? If so then it may be problem with its kernel and version, and not with your 3DS.

    But if his 3DS games work then it shouldn't help him because 3DS games have almost the same cartridges as the DS ones.
