1. Install CIAs
2. Run 3DS ROMs
3. Run DS ROMs
4. Run EDITED 3DS ROMs
5. Have 9.2.0-20U firmware and still have all features work
1. No (although you get this with crappy 'CFW' anyway)
2. Yes, up to a point (about ~2013) no eshop at all
3. Yes.
4. Probably not, since homebrew-level sig checks aren't in place.
5. Well, you can downgrade to 4.5 and get the above features/limitations.

Honestly, since its $25 above a reg DS card, the R4iGold D isn't such a bad deal for $40.

Thats why I asked... I heard they were $73 somewhere else, it seemed $58 was too good. But thanks, I'll order it within the next few days. How's shipping? Did it take a long time?

Can confirm they are legit, got mine a year ago there for the same price
It took 2 weeks from ordering till it arrived

everything the R4i GD does, the cfw does* for free plus you get you use dev tools like SDF with the cfw....waste of money imho

*well except NDS roms, but you could buy a cheap $12 Nds flashcard if you really wanted one

The only way your going to get a "Yes" in this thread OP is if the question was:

  1. "Can you wipe your ass with r4i gold 3ds?"
  2. "Can you sell your r4i gold 3ds?"
  3. "Can you use buggy firmware on r4i gold 3ds?"
  4. "Can you get Christmas Packaging with r4i gold 3ds?"
  5. "Can you recycle your r4i gold 3ds?"

It does offer ... extra SD card space XD.

(and let's not forget Ramble Pak support :P)

you could use the money you would spend on the R4 to just buy a bigger SD card for your 3DS.....suppose it makes a handy game slot dust cover :tpi:
but see for the OP's questions's R4 gets a
#1 no
#2 limited
#3 yes
#4 no
#5 no

cfw is
#1 yes
#2 yes also has the exact same limitations
#3 no
#4 yes
#5 no

so cfw wins in that regard, and its free

I've tried CFW so many freakin times. I got it to work on my 2GB sd card, and now I wanna use my 8GB, but it ALWAYS crashes. I restart at step 1 and shit, but never any luck

    Finally got an appointment with an ENT, but it's not for another month. It's already been 4- days of loud ringing in my left ear, substantial pain on left side of my neck and left side on the back of my head. Doctors here at the regular clinic put me on a couple different meds for a month that did absolutely nothing, then they told me there's nothing more they can do for me despite being in pain and my ear sounding like im underwater and ringing.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then three chiropractor appointments which also didn't help at all so i didn't go to the 4th. Been trying to get ahold of this ENT clinic out of town for a week and finally got an appointment set up. But its not til the 17th of July so I have to suffer all this shit for nearly another month.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I hope relief from all of this is on the way because I've felt so defeated and severaly lacking in sleep because of the pain and ringing.
