    Hi guys, complete 3ds noob. I used the r4 for my regular ds. Now looking for one for my 3ds, its an old 3ds (first ones) on version 9.0.0-20E.

    I'll want to play 3ds games and if eshop shop games if that's possible.
    Gamehark is also preferable. I have seen gateway card but you need v4 something. And sky3d but has no gameshark.

    Since there's a lot of us games that don't cone to EU it would be great to have a flash card that supports US region games.

    Thanks for everyone that answers, love you.

    Gateway supports versions 4.x-4.5 and now 8.1-9.2. Since you're on 9.0 I would not update and order a Gateway.

    It allows region free, eShop through emuNAND and a whole slew of other possibilities. No "gameshark" cheats available, but for regular DS games you can get a Supercard DSTwo which does allow cheats - Or use your old R4 after you get GW up and running.

    I'd recommend reading a lot of the newbie threads here. There used to be a really good one that listed all of the pros and cons of all the different flashcards available, but I can't seem to find it. It may have been moved to EoF due to lack of updates.

    You don't have to use a flashcard, use a CFW!

    Very true, I forgot about RxTools and Pasta. I haven't really played around with them much outside of firmware spoofing, but yea, no flashcard needed for those at all.

    I wonder if GW will be limiting the functionality of their Launcher with all of the CFW's emerging. Guess there's not much they can do about it at all now though.

    Wasn't aware of cfw, I guess I'll check them out. Thanks a lot
