    I got a 3DS that I'm planning to trade in for 3DS XL, and I want to know if any flashcarts still work for 3DS XLs?

    I'd preferably not buy another Acekard 2i, had problems with it and would not like to deal with that shit again.

    All cards works with XL.
    There is no difference with 3DS and 3DS XL.
    XL has just a bigger screen.

    The Best are DSTwo,R4i Gold and AceKard2i.

    You can exclude Acekard 2i from the list unless you're going to use it on a DS/DS Lite, because the team is having a hard time keeping their cart up to date, so your best bet is the R4i Gold(r4ids.cn) or Supercard DSTWO.

    You want extra features such as SNES/GBA emulation etc..? Go with DSTWO.

    You want a cart that can run regular DS Homebrew and DS ROMs? Go with an R4i Gold(r4ids.cn)

    Make sure to get the R4i Gold from the site I've provided in between brackets if you're picking that choice.

    Does the ds two allow firmware updates on the 3ds or will I need a regular ds to do it? Same question goes for the r4.

    All carts can update on all systems that will run them.

    The issue is if you update the system (3DS) before the cart. Then it won't run the cart, so you can't update it.
