Hello everyone, I've decided I want a 3ds XL for Christmas and I'm currently trying to decide if I want to invest in a flash cart as well. I'm fully aware it will not play 3DS ROMS, not real concerned about that. What I'm trying to figure out is a few things: 1.) My understanding is that in addition to not playing roms, you cannot use cheat code/hacks with any currently existing carts or the Action Replay. Is this correct? 2.) I've never had a modded console of any kind, anyone got a list of things I need to know to get started? Very computer and technology savvy, just not real familiar with ins and outs of what I need to know to use this type of thing. 3.) In the vein of the 2nd point, do I need to disable and/or remove the cart at certain points? (IE connecting to wi-fi, downloading Nin. Network games, etc?) If not, will it function identically to having a plain SDHC card in that slot for all intents & purposes when doing such things? 4.) I have read in several places not to DL the new firmware for the console until I have updated my flash cart. This leads me to the questions, do you update the flash cart while it's in the console or do you update it while the micro card is connected to your computer? Not real clear on how this business works. Thanks for any feedback you guys can give me, I MOSTLY want a cart to use hack codes w/, and secondarily to manage games I own into one source so I don't have to hunt down the individual cartridges. As such, I'm not sure what I need to be considering when going after one of these.
