    Thanks. There haven't been any major changes in the flash cart scene for a while, thus the lack of updates.

    is there a reason why there isnt softmods?
    figured since the 3ds has an sd card it would be possible to softmod it in some way
    more asking this out of curiosity

    You should update this with information about gateway and 3ds backups.

    Updated with what we know so far. Just like the "Which flash cart" thread, there's stuff that's not clear yet.

    You should change the info for 3DS ROM dumping as it is possible via flash cart. Also a note that 4.x systems can run homebrew without a flashcart should be added.

    I want to get a flash cart for my DSI XL 1.4E but i have no idea which to get.

    I want it to have an autosave, cheats, supports sleep mode and has a decent ui. Preferably from a site in EU that sells it somewhat cheap with tracking and supports purchase by paypal. CAn anyone link me some good ones?

    It seems the dsi doesnt work on my current wifi, so i'lm just gonna leave it offline.

    The cart from r4ids.cn may be what you're looking for. It doesn't have autosave but it does have real time save which allows you to save anywhere manually although it doesn't work for all games. As for a site that does use PayPal, I can't think of any since Nintendo cooperated with PayPal to remove the accounts of several sites from what I have read.

    Oh, ok. Cause i am highly afraid to give random sites my credit card info.

    Plus that site has several different versions of the flash carts and i don't know which to pick.

    For playing DS games, choose the R4i Gold 3DS RTS Version. From what I remember the GW blue cart is a clone and by using Flashcart Time warp will allow you to use it again if you intend on playing 3DS games.

    Hey I have been thinking about doing this for some years now. I have an old NDS maybe bought a year after it came out. hasn't seen much use on it. I want to play nds pokemon games, and hopefully emulate some gbc pokemon games on it. was Looking at the card the above poster mentioned, but it doesn't list NDS, starts at Nds Light. Can anyone suggest a card that will work for sure in my old nds? thanks

    Anything that works in a DS Lite will work in an old DS. They use essentially the same firmware, although the old DS did have firmware revisions for really old flashkits that nobody uses anymore.

    Depends on the card. Many older cards are blocked on the 3DS. If you want one that isn't blocked, the DSTWO is the best at this point.
