    Well my R4i Gold 3DS card from Nds-Card.com arrived a while back now (fairly quickly after I ordered it, I am in England) and works properly (with saves working) with Zelda Phantom Hourglass Dpad hack, with my DSI XL firmware 1.4.5E. Happiness.

    Cheers,

    Alistair G.

    Oh there are Dpad hacks? I wonder if that'll work on 3DS. I also wonder how quickly updates happen after a new 3DS firmware release to keep it compatible.

    Nope, not yet :-/ Do you need to format the mircoSD a specific format?

    I have this for my DSI XL and it's flat out AWESOME. Can't recommend it enough, get it. It's worth every 20 bucks you'll ever spend.

    I use a brand new 16gb mini sd card from amazon, the good shit and it was only 12 bucks or something on amazon prime. Buy buy buy.

    Hi,
    Does this "R4i Gold" work with a 2DS (w/ firmware 7.1.0-16U)?
    Besides, which other options do you recommend?
    Thanks!

    When could R4i gold 3ds deluxe edition work on 8.1.0-18?

    Probably never, as it's a clone of a card that's much better supported, yet will still only work on 4.x.x

    He means that R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe is a clone of Gateway.

    This cart only runs in DS-Mode, thus it won't run any 3DS homebrew.
