    I Decided to try something random so I Booted up My Pokemon White 2 Cartridge in my 3DS (FW 4.5)
    When the Screen goes black I Removed the cartridge for about 2 Seconds then put it back in and the game booted up normally

    Maybe if you could switch the cartridges fast enough it would load a different game?

    Yea I figured that out now I tried to boot Pokemon white 2 then removed the cartridge and attempted to have it boot into Pokemon Black but it just stayed black screen although if u take the cartridge out and wait long enough it will show an error screen so it knows when you put a different cartridge in

    It's a good idea, but what are the chances you find two games together that cause something, and that you can go from there and find an exploit?

    If hotswapping led to an exploit, we'd have been dancing in our underwear on day one singing "lol free games!".

    Well it could have led to an exploit except the 3ds shows an error as soon as you remove a 3ds cartridge (Well afaik anyway Because it did that with Mario Kart 7)

    If you press HOME then you can leave it ejected as long as you want and it'll still boot normally. Just in case you were wondering

    I didn't say anything about suspending them. Are you an idiot or just ignorant?

    I just tried that and it just returns to the home menu after clicking cancel if you eject and reinsert the cartridge

    Maybe it only works for flashcarts, dunno. I was pretty sure it worked for all DS games, but then crashed after you tried to do anything
