    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

    I'm pretty sure Gateway Can do all the stuff I asked, but can it play DS ROMs?

    That's your best bet. I was wrong on #3. It comes with a second cart to play DS roms just like Gateway.

    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.

    I bought mine from there as have many others, and I would buy from them again. They have the best price.

    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?

    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?"

    whatever price you can find a 3ds compatible card for, general price seems to be around $10......but if you can find one for $3.64 that works on a 4.x 3ds sure thing

    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
