    Installing injected VCs is better than any emulator.

    I use the gambatte core from retroarch. Haven't had any problems with it, and let's you set custom color pallets per game.

    Personally, I use mGBA simply because of the fact that it still receives updates. It is also pretty fast and more stable than both GameYob and Retroarch. I also uses it because it plays GB/GBC/GBA games.

    I use Gameyob for GB/GBC and injects for GBA.
    Just makes no sense to use injects for GB/GBC since the emulation is basically perfect and Gameyob is really comfy.

    I usually use Gameyob DSiWare, as it allows me to play Gameboy games with GBC pallets.

    +1 GameYob DSiWare is absolutely the BEST gb/gbc emulator on 3DS.

    I just inject, the extra space is negligible and the convenience of having the title on my Home Menu is enough.

    That said, if you need cheats or other non-save-state emulator features, go Gameyob.

    I'm the scrub who uses his DSTWO and runs Gameyob in DS mode.
