    Not quite. B4DS neither adds 3DS/CIA support to any given flashcard (and never will) nor bypasses the stock firmware's card blacklist. If you need either of those, you must still softmod your console.

    Instead, what it can do is add commercial ROM loading support to homebrew-only cards (some popped up during the DS's early life and can be still bought for cheap if you look around enough, plus this feature will be quite useful if you live in a country with strict copyright laws as they usually don't fall in the same category as full-blown flashcards) and act as a kernel replacement for all cards, especially targeting old & unsupported ones / cheap clones.

    Sadly not. Your flashcard needs to boot in order to load TWiLight Menu++ (either as a kernel replacement or from your card's menu).
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Nope, Widescreen only works for games that display 3D poligonal graphics, and Ghost Trick is a 2D sprite graphics game.

    I just remembered I have the cursed R4i Deluxe flashcard so I should try to see if it works with this.

    I haven't updated in a very long time, mostly because I had everything running great, and the dev dropped the app I was using just to start another from scratch. I guess I'll try and update whatever I'm currently running. Haven't turned on a DS (or 3DS) since the Switch launched.

    This is going to sound stupid, I am sure... but can I boot like Wood firmware on this? It was my favorite firmware back when I had my M3 Simply :)
    Yellow Wood Goblin thank for you all that work!!!

    Also thank you for all the work on Twilight Menu!!! It's one of my favorite things on my 3DS :)

    What's stopping a version that can boot directly off the flashcart's microSD, effectively becoming a stand-alone usable kernel for a huge number of flashcarts?

    That's already a thing, check out the "Flashcard users\Autoboot" folder inside TWiLight Menu++'s release archive and the "Set-up (Flashcard users, including DS Phat/DS lite)" in its official thread for guides/documentation.
    However, not all flashcards are supported because they tend to use different ways to load/store their kernels (some are encrypted, others use proprietary formats, etc).

    I still don't get it. What is the deal with all these flashcarts?
    All DSi's are hackable via camera exploit, so flashcarts are not needed for them at all.
    Fat NDS and NDS Lite? But they are supported by any old flashcart.

    The second you said, and the fact that this will work on anything that has a DLDI driver, even devices that were not meant for commercial backups loading or very old devices that were abandoned, i.e. the action replay devices or cards like the Ninjapass.

    Unfortunatelly yes, as the issue involves something big that affects many games, but is being worked and could be fixed in later versions.
