    Getting a 3DS soon, which is the best flash cart just for playing DS backups? I got a CycloDS Evolution for my DS Lite and I think I'll get an R4i Gold 3DS cause that's the cheapest but I'm not sure if my CycloDS save files are compatible with that cart or not. Are the iEvolution's extra features worth the higher price?

    EDIT: I'd also like to know if the flash carts support soft reset so I can go straight back to the flash cart menu without turning my 3DS off and on again.

    Acekard 2i and R4i Gold support soft-reset, not sure on iEvo.

    If iEvo is worth the price or not depends on your goal. If it's homebrew then maybe, as many homebrews work better in DSi-mode. If it's DSi games... the few that need a DSi suck in general, and those with DSi enhancements have shitty enhancements as far as most people are concerned.

    Cyclo DSi doesn't work on 3DS since two months.

    Get a R4iDSN 3D or an R4i Gold 3D. Best cards right now.

    Make sure you get the right one. There are a lot of "R4 Gold" floating arround.

    The original one is just 7 Euros from China. I love it. [​IMG]

    That looks to be the right cart, yes.

    It's expensive there, it's 17 Dollars. I only paid ~11-12 Dollars per card.

    Hmmm Shoptemp needs updating! In that case I'll just buy it from Lightake.

    No, stay away from it. The Cyclo team has a terrible rep. Get AK2i or R4iGold.

    Of the 3, I'd say AK2i (realhotstuff, $18 free shipping), but I don't have much experience with R4's. However if you've got the funds for an iEvo why not just jump on the DSTWO?
