    I'm purchasing a 2ds, but need some answers.

    1.) Can I run Roms without a flash card?
    2.) Will a 3ds hack work on a 2ds, or are they different firmwares?
    3.) What firmware will it come with?
    4.) If I hack it, will I need a flashcard?

    Thanks so much! I never got into Nintendo hacking as its just so advanced. I'm good at the ps3 scene and PC.

    This is the guide you need:
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    This guide will work on New 3DS, Old 3DS, and 2DS in the EUR, JPN, or USA regions on firmware 11.0.0 or below. -- This note was taken directly from the guide, it has been a while since i modded a 2DS/3DS

    It requires no flashcards and allows you to install games straightr to the SD card. Just make sure you have a big enough SD card (Im using a 32gb)


    Once you have complete the above guide, you can install CIAngel that lets you donwload games straight to the 2DS/3DS without needing a computer

    For 11.0.0 you will need a hardmod. For 10.6 and 10.7 you will need a cartridge based entry point. Anything below that you should be able to use browserhax as long as you have a working browser.

    1) Yes, if you install CFW.
    2) The procedures for 2DS and O3DS are identical.
    3) The two 2DSs I have came with 6.0.0-11. (bought them in the last month)
    4) No, unless you want to use DS roms, then you need a DS flashcart.

    For any software based exploits, treat it as an o3ds.

    First a 2ds is an o3ds.
    Second never ever buy a gateway. Like ever. It's a waste of your time and money
    Third . it's highly possible that your 3ds comes with a firmware lower than 10.6 thus you can hack it without an exploit game or hardmod. Just follow this guide and in no time your 3ds will be hacked and ready for all the games you want without the need for a flashcard.
    And you don't need a flashcard to run 3ds ROMs as nowadays they come as cias. Nowadays there isn't even the need for cias as you can use a tool called free shop to install pirated ROMs right on the 3ds

    No idea why mentionning the Gateway in a thread that never talked about it if it's to say "don't buy it".
    Plus, even though I hate how they do their stuff (mostly the "aka A9LH" thing...), I think that "waste of time and money" applies more to Sky3DS than to Gateway. At least Gateway has features (most of them and more being covered by free CFWs but still, a Sky3DS is far below the amount of features provided by Gateway).

    So yeah ok, let's say freeCFW>Gateway if you want, but why bash them if that was uncalled for and why bash them when there is worse?

    Yes, DS(lite) roms. 3DS roms (actually, CIAs) run without a flashcart once installed.

    I was just curious if the flash card days are over.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    So, I follow that guide, install freeshop, follow the guide for there brew, then download a CIA, put it on my Samsung SD card, and viola I got free games? Seems pretty awesome, thanks so much!
