    tl;dr Gateway is the "best" as they are the ones actually creating the new features.

    MT-Card technically has most of the same features atm iirc but they are pretty much copying Gateway firmware within days/weeks, they also lack a multiROM menu accessible after booting to EmuNAND (unless I missed an update).

    if you need a 3DS flashcarts, please put up your 3DS firmware version here first.

    V4.1-V4.5 recommend Gateway 3D, MT Card 3DS;
    abover V4.5, such as V5.x, V6.x V7.x, recommend r4i gold 3DS, DSTwo

    theres the cheaps ones, then theres the good ones,
    cheap ones = R4i gold deluxe,3DSlink,orange3ds,
    being cheap they are pretty crap in features, no multi rom, no nand saving games(pokemon and animal crossing) no homebrew, no eshop support

    Good ones = Gateway,MT card
    out of these 2 gateway has more features and is the original devlopers, MT is close, but lacks a few features like save dumping, game cart dumping, homebrew support....and possibly something else i forget, they are both pretty much the same price, so i suggest you get the gateway as MT are pretty much a slightly lacking clone

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves, there is currently no indication any of the cards will ever support anything above 4.5, but if anyone would do it I would put my money on gateway

    Just get a V4.1-V4.5 3DS, then order a Gateway 3DS,
    They are the best partner !

    The r4i gold does not play 3ds roms. The r4i gold deluxe plays 3ds roms

    Yes. http://www.r4i-gold.me/en/product/index.htm

    Look there.

    R4i carts have lots of names many similar but only one plays 3ds games.

    R4i gold 3ds(r4i gold pro) DOES NOT play 3ds roms. It is R4i gold deluxe 3ds that plays 3ds roms. READ IT AGAIN, it supports use on the 3ds. It works on firmware 7.1.xxxx meaning it is a DS mode flashcart not a 3DS mode flashcart. You dont believe me, google r4i gold pro 3ds and you will see.

    Jesus Christ man the info is there fraking use it

    Jesus, calm your tits. I assume he linked the wrong Gold since he did agree with you in the first place.

    For the love of crap. I was telling justIn that he was wrong and the link was to provide proof that he made a mistake. Pfft. Typical.

    Yes. I agree, his tits need some love.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I was irritated and overtired and should learn not to post in that state of mind. I went to the beach and barbecued for 15 people and got sunburned as a mother fu*ker. Plus cooking for 15 people all with different tastes is not that fun. I apologize.

    Anyways those r4i cart descriptions are pretty vague. Like someone said(i think it was in this thread.... maybe in another one) i think they keep it vague to boost sales to people who think, "oh haiz now i canz play 3ds romz on my 3ds"
