Hey guys I've never posted here before so if this is in the wrong place to post this it would be great if you directed me to the right place. But anyways I have a few homebrew questions for all of you people who know a lot about it. I was going to buy another 3ds and hack it just to make sure my original 3ds stayed safe and I couldn't lose the games I bought on it or anything. If instead of hacking a new one I hack the one I already have and then brick it or get banned have I then lost all the games that I purchased? How common is it to brick or get banned. I've seen threads on this before but I want to know the possibilities currently. If it breaks I can still buy a new 3ds and call Nintendo and get the games I bought back, right? Is there any reason not to hack my current 3ds? Also my ads is on version 11.3.0-36U. Is there any way to hack that or is it still impossible on that version. My second question is what emulators run on the original 3ds. If nintendo themselves couldn't get a snes emulator to run on an old 3ds then is homebrew really able to? What about gba? My last questions is about ds and 3ds games. I know there is freeshop and stuff for 3ds and I believe that that is still up but is there any way to load ds roms? Is there some sort of sd card reader that plays ds games like they're from the cart? Thanks for reading all that and hopefully answering my questions!
