Or just install Arm9LoaderHax and go to town on old titles without paying Gateway. You can inject old games into the VC emulators and run homebrew channel for homebrew shit.

The only reason to have a flashcart on 3DS is for DS games. Everything else can be done through CFW.

Very true. CFW does allow the 3DS to do much more.

The nice thing about a DS Flash Cart, though, is that it's running in DS mode, so there's no risk of a future 3DS Firmware update breaking 3DS homebrew.

That is a fair point. The latest system update in fact semi-bricked my N3DS. I get a black screen on boot instead of the home menu. I still have my backups though, so if nothing else I can restore those and be back in business. The nice thing with A9LH is that it loads up before anything else, so you can recover from almost anything once it's installed.

Edit: Updating Luma3DS fixed it.

I just love being able to use the full screen, which all emulators running in ds mode cant do.

Bingo! Thats what Ive got set up. Homebrew channel stopped working after the latest update, but I just have to update my payload and Ill be fine. Just have to remember not to update the system when Im out and about from now on.
