    First off the r4i gold pro you are talking of is probably a knock-off you want the r4i gold 3ds it's the best and most legit cart you can buy. I used ndsgamer and they were fine but I live in US I'm not sure of they ship international and yes I do believe the r4i gold 3ds I compatible with the most updated 3ds firmware but it requires you to cut a wire on the motherboard. But as long as you stay below FW 6.0.0 you'll be fine now do you plan on buy ing your 3ds used or new? Because if its new you should be fine I don't think they ship yet with FW 6.0.0 so you'll be good. Hope this helps and I'd you have any other questions feel free to ask or pm me.

    Are you aware you will not be able to play 3DS games with the R4i Gold? Only DS games.

    Yeah if you buy it new then you should be good just buy the cart and put your stuff on it and plug and play. Now if your 3ds is on 6.0.0 then you will have to cut a wire on the motherboard of the Cart and you might need a nds but I'm not sure do some research about. Google is your friend when it comes to this stuff.

    Turn off the wifi, and turn off ALL automatic updates and downloads, including streetpass and spotpass.

    Generally if the cart is updated more than the 3DS, it'll work anyways.
