    So we could dump 3ds carts into either cias, or 3ds. What if we could flash the 3ds carts and put our own 3ds games on that cart?

    No as they are roms aka "Read Only Memory"

    Why would you even want to flash games to a cart other then for bootlegging of course.

    Gateway.

    At least for me part of the point of making backups of your games is so you don't need a bunch of carts

    I know. I just thought of it as a thing we should maybe start doing in 3ds hacking.

    Sky3DS/every other clone of it is the closest you're going to get to "flashing" a cartridge.
    Nintendo's of course put all of their effort into trying to stop people from plain flashing carts, such as crypto, of course!

    He says he wanted to make backups of his digital aka eshop games. Sky3ds doesn't work with those unless I'm missing something

    I am talking about 3ds games that are physical and digital.

    Its safe to assume he meant eshop. (at least in part)
