So I got a used 3DS from a friend, and, as the topic title says, I'm looking to get a cart, after having had a good ol' R4 back in the day. Problem is, I have no idea what to get. My 3DS' firmware is "9.6.0-24U", for what it's worth, but: -What card do I get in the first place? I did some poking, read the wiki, and all that; seems Gateway is the best, but I also saw lots of "Bugs: Doesn't support 9.6 or above" and the like. I see the "All firmwares 10.7 and below can be downgraded", yes, but I'm uncertain of how involved that'll be and am aiming for something as painless as possible -Where would I get such a card? I know, I know, nds-card is the sponsor, but their paypal method where I need to email someone seems as shady as possible while still technically utilizing paypal, and I've read a few other sites saying it's a scam. Plus, of course, the gateway site itself doesn't mention it... I tried reading the various resources here, but I have no idea at all the meaning or application of .cia, EMUnand, etc., so I'm afraid it all goes over my head. I also apologize if this is the wrong place to put this; it's been a while since I've been to these forums.
