    https://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490 supposedly has a timebomb meaning after a cretin date (September 3, 2019) it will no longer load ds roms (its primary function) . . . you can use ntrboot with this card as well it just takes a few steps to setup and if you want ds roms after then you must restore ds mode (3ds.hacks.guide has a section for this)

    https://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=575 comes with ntrboot preflashed so when installing ntrboot you can must skip some steps in 3ds.hacks.guide ... with this card you would start here Installing boot9strap (ntrboot) - 3DS Hacks Guide instead of the beginning . . . also to access the switch that changes the card between ntrboot and ds mode you need to psychically open it

    never knew that so many R4 type to choose from
    and some of the website didn't sell R4i Gold 3DS Plus, they sold the Pro one
    I thought at first they are the same.

    glad I found this site :)

    There used to be even more, but only a handful seem to be in production anymore.

    Most games are around or less than 600MB. The biggest game I've seen on the system is Pokemon USUM at 3.9GB

    They average about 1GB for me. I have about 60 games on my 64GB card which is full. And I don't play Monster Hunter, those games would eat up like 10GB alone.

    I have another question about my micro sd card,
    for the 64G I have to format it with FAT 32 right,
    and then is this going to device card (under the lid) or is this going to the flash card?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi, finally I succeed installing luma with 3ds gold+

    can someone help me please about how installing 3ds game rom like pokemon and other games?
    I can not find the link about installing 3ds game rom.

    is it drag and drop like using R4?

    Thank you.

    google (name of the game) 3ds.cia and select the link with iso in the address bar
    no. you want cia files you put them on your sd card and install them via fbi

    It's worth noting that they are all literally the same cart. There's no hardware difference between the R4i Gold Pro and R4i-B9S, they are just ripping people off. So not only do they have that shitty timebomb, but they also just sell the same cart at different prices.
