    i recently ordered an r4i sdhc 3ds dual core flash card for my 2ds and i was wondering if it could run homebrew developed for 3ds. sorry if this has been asked a lot, but i couldn't find out if it could run regular DS homebrew or DS and 3ds homebrew.

    If they didn't say they support it than they don't.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    no, it's a DS MODE card.

    only gateway and sky3ds can play 3ds roms (both of which are totally diferent)

    there is a R4 clone of the gateway "r4 gold 3ds gold deluxe edition" from http://r4ids.cn/ team but gateway is the real thing...
    THIS IS THE ONLY 3DS MODE R4 CARD. but i don't think its updated anyway...

    Ok , thanks. I knew it couldn't run 3ds Roms, but I wasn't sure if it was the same for homebrew.

    It's just another ds cart, and no ds cart can run 3DS homebrew.
