    In my opinion, GBA VC injection is a waaay better option than using emulators. Just follow the guide Omegadrien posted. Last time i tried, emulators gave me 11fps on my 2DS whereas GBA VCs worked like a dream.

    Since you asked this question, I suppose you're new to the 3ds scene, do read the FAQs around the forum. If not, ignore this.

    You're right, I tried emulators before and the framerates weren't too good. But not i'm updated to 10.7 and am unable to use those anymore. Is it possible to downgrade?

    If you have a homebrew access, good to go (but read carefully the guide)

    Once/if you downgrade to 9.2 and setup an emuNAND, I'd recommend AuReiNAND. As AuReiNAND uses updated reboot patches that allows you to play games such as Smash Bros/Monster Hunter (games that reboot after you close them) and GBA/DSiWare. AuReiNAND is the only CFW to be able to do this. Every other CFE has a compromise, either GBA/DSiWare, or games such as Smash Bros, but not both.

    That's the problem. Because it has the reboot patch it can't play GBA games on o3ds unless you disable reboot patch, in which case you can't play sm4sh.

    Now try playing a GBA game without disabling the reboot patch, oh wait, you can't.
    That's what I meant. Cakes needs a compromise, you have to choose one or the other. AuReiNAND allows you to do both.

    I think what he's saying is If the reboot patch is on in cakes then you can't play dsi or gba I think you have to turn it off the reboot patch manually.

    You guys are real :ph34r:s

    Yeah, and who would want to waste their time doing that? :P We want to play games! :D Exit Smash Bros and immediately open that GBA game! No need to change some settings around.

    I agree that's why I use aurei:) however I think cakesfw with its cake patches is amazing and has lots of potential.

    Funny how a mod of reinand that was made for personal use turned into the #1 cfw replacing even the original since it supports all 3ds models

    What you want. Zelda OOT (physical version) + powersave OR Cubic ninja. I think oothax is cheaper.

    I did not want to open a new thread for this so I will ask here:

    I was able like a month ago to instal GBA injects on my sys/emu NANDS, and I can play them with no issues, BUT, now for no apparent reason, I install any GBA inect and they DONT appear on my sys nand, and neither can play them on emunand.

    The old injects I have are OK and all, but any new installed game just dont show up on both Nands.

    USA O3ds, unlinked nands, sys 9.2U emu RX10.5.0.30U.
