What is Flipnote Studio?
Flipnote Studio is a free application that was released by Nintendo for the Nintendo DSi and 3DS systems in 2009 and 2013, respectively. It allows users to create animations using the touch screen and stylus, and add sound effects and music using the microphone. Users can also share their flipnotes online via the Flipnote Hatena service, or locally via wireless communication. Flipnotes are stored in a proprietary format called PPM, which can be converted to GIF or AVI files using third-party software.
What is a Flashcard?
A flashcard is a device that plugs into the cartridge slot of a Nintendo DS, DS Lite, DSi, or 3DS system and allows users to run homebrew software, emulators, or backup copies of games from a microSD card. Flashcards are also known as R4 cards, after the name of one of the most popular models. Flashcards are not officially supported by Nintendo and may void the warranty of your system. Use them at your own risk.
What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a modified version of an official game or application that has been altered by hackers or fans to add new features, fix bugs, or change the content. Custom ROMs are usually distributed as .nds files that can be run on flashcards or emulators. Some custom ROMs may require additional files or patches to work properly.

Extract the .nds files from the downloaded ZIP archives and copy them to your microSD card. You can rename them as you like, but make sure they have the .nds extension.
