    I think I am going to buy a flashcart for my 3ds, but I know that 3ds roms can not yet be played on a 3ds. If i buy a 3ds flashcart now, will it be able to play 3ds roms, when they find out how, with a simple update, or will I have to buy an entire new flashcart?

    Assuming one ever gets made, you will have to buy a new flashcart. As the current ones only support DS games and will never support 3ds games.

    There are no 3DS flashcards, there are DSi flashcards that work on the 3DS. No DSi flashcard will be able to run 3DS ROMs, so you'll have to buy a whole new flashcard.

    Really you'll be waiting a while, I'd estimate at least a year or more.

    Why is it taking them so long to get 3ds roms to work on 3ds?

    Because the security is quite advanced/hard to crack.

    Alright, you've got your answer. So pretty much any comments after this will be crap.
