Do you guys know if there is any way to 3ds games downloaded on my 3ds without the need for 3ds flashcards? Specifically, I was wondering if there is a way to run 3ds roms without sky3ds or gateway because those 3ds flashcards tend to be really expensive (a lot more than the 3ds r4 cards which are limited only to ds games). I followed the tutorial on this site, and so far so good: 3DS Hack With eShop Game - No Flashcard Needed A buddy of mine followed the same tutorial and showed me Pokemon X and Y running on his 3DS. I thought it was awesome how he was able to run 3ds roms on his 3ds without a r4 3ds card or any type of 3ds flashcard. Is there any way I can do the same thing? I really want to download 3ds games on my 3ds, and I don't want to wait like 5 more years for a 3ds emulator to come out.
