    Hey guys,

    I'm just about to buy the Ice White 3DS & Mario bundle.

    And I have a few questions about flash cards before I order any.


    1) Which one would you reccomend?
    2) Will it work on the 3DS automatically, or will it need to be updated on an old DS (I don't have access to any)
    3) What's the chance of the 3DS being bricked? :(
    4) Where's a good place to order from in the UK?


    Thanks everyone.

    Acekard 2i, you will have to update it on an old DS/DS lite first though.

    R4i Gold - make sure it's one from r4ids.cn though. It should be fully updated when you buy it, it's easy to set up, and works with Wood so you'll have great compatibility. Not to mention it's the cheapest out there right now.

    Where to buy from? I'd personally suggest ZhuZhuChina - they have cheap prices and they're very reliable (you know exactly what you;re buying and the shipping is fairly quick).

    Stop recommending flashcarts that need a DS/Lite.
    the DSTwo is best in every way except for battery life.

    1 - http://gbatemp.net/t290097-which-flash-cart-should-i-get
    I'd recommend the DSTwo personally.

    2 - It depends on if the store you buy it from updates their carts before sending them out. Not all stores do.

    3 - http://gbatemp.net/topic/284730-3ds-bricking-rumor/
    No 3DS has ever been bricked from using a flash cart.
