Nintendo 3DS Hacked - Play ROMs with R4 3DS cards!
It only took one days for the N3DS to get hacked and existing R4 SDHC Gold and R4i DSi cards got firmware updates which made them support 3DS. Now the list of compatible 3DS R4 flash cards is growing, but I would like to point out 3 of my top favorites for the title of the best first generation R4 3DS card:
- SuperCard DSTWO 3DS
- for having great DS rom compatibility, and of course for the exclusive GBA rom, SNES and MAME roms emulators and DivX video support!
- AceKard 3 3DS AK2i*
- firmware update for AceKard 2i makes it into a good R4 3DS Flash Card with near perfect NDS rom and Homebrew app support.
- CycloDS 3DS iEvolution
- the first card to brake the DSi-Mode was also the one Nintendo forgot or didn't have time to include in the 3DS R4 blacklist, so it work on N3DS out of the box without the need for any firmware updates.
About Gameboy Advance Roms
Everybody knows what Gameboy Advance is, but do you really know what GBA
In cartridges produced by Nintendo games are stored in a memory that
can only be read and cannot be erased or rewritten. ROM – Read
Only Memory. That’s where the name Gameboy Advance Roms comes
Now what you must be wondering about is what good is this information
» First of all if you want to make GBA roms you have to
have a way for connecting gameboy cartridge to PC. For that you can
one of the Flash Advance Linkers (GBA
X-ROM, EZ-Flash, EZFA, Flash Advance, PRO / Turbo / Extreme, Flash2Advance,
F2A Ultra, XG-Flash, XG2 Turbo or EZ2 PowerStar).
» Second and even more important – Nintendo Gameboy and DS cartridges cannot
be rewritten, BUT if you had a cartridge that could be rewritten you
write your own games (gba roms) on to that cart! Well GBA
Flash Advance Cards are created just for this purpose.
of ROM memory they are equipped with ReWritable flash memory similar
the one used in memory cards for MP3 players and digital cameras (SD,
MMC, Smart Media, Compact Flash cards) Just like any other flash memory
Advance X-ROM Flash Cards can be written / erased / rewritten infinite
numbers of times. On one such card you can store from 8 to 32 gameboy
advance roms games.
So if you have one of the Flash Advance Linkers
and Flash Cards you can backup the games from your Nintendo Gameboy
on PC as GBA ROMs, and write gba roms that you have on PC to GBA F2A,
SuperCard Mico SD, XG or EZ-Flash2 card for playing them on GAMEBOY ADVANCE / GBASP!
Actually most of the roms that you can download from the Internet were
made using Flash Advance Linker of some kind. Freeware, Public
Domain and gba
Demo roms are made exclusively for gba flash linkers / carts because
besides using gba emulator that is the only way you can play them on
Game Boy Advanced / GBA SP.
GBA ROMs ( Gameboy Advance Games backuped to PC) are not the only ones
that can be played on GBA. Gameboy Advance has such a powerful processor
it is possible to emulate other older consoles and computers using GBA.
This opens up a whole new world of possibilities.. There thousands
classic games that now can be played on Gameboy Hardware. NES roms
, ZX Spectrum, SEGA Game Gear, Atari 2600, Chip8 roms all can be put
on a flash advance
card and played (emulated) on GBA read

With a GBA / DS Flash Card you can play NDS ROMs on Nintendo DS Lite and classic consoles. For playing DS games an additional PassCard is necessary or you have to get a DS game card shaped [slot-1] nds flash card.
PSP ROMs & ISOs - PlayStation Portable game backups are much larger than Gameboy roms because they are originally stored on UMD discs that can contain up to 1.8 GB of memory.
DS GTA - Grand Theft Auto for DS called Chinatown Wars. Estimated release date November 2008 in time for Christmas shopping boom. GTA DS Will feature WiFi multiplayer support and as usual for NDS 3D shooter titles a superior control scheme.
Nintendo DSi released in Japan on Nov1 2008 in EU spring '09 and in USA even later. It is the 3rd version of the DS and it will play most NDS roms but there will also be special games designed only fort DSi that will take advantage of the built in cameras and SD card slot. Bad news are that DSi roms will be region locked so you will have to hack your DSi to play games from another part of the world. But looking at how NDS & DS Lite had multiple versions of custom firmware / hacks and mods I don't think it will be long before we will be able to play roms from the SD card slot :) DSi
