    So I originally was going to get a supercard dstwo for the gba emulation but ive decided to get an ez flash IV instead for my gba games since I still have my GBASP. so now im strictly looking for a ds flashcard for my 3ds. 3ds firmware is 6.3.0-12E. Im looking at these .

    R4I dual core.

    R4I RTS 3DS.

    Which would be the best choice?

    supercard is still the best and most preferred 3ds card to use for DS roms.

    fast updates and doesnt need a new card every few updates..

    r4 cards only last a few updates then you need to get a new card to use for newer firmwares..

    the dstwo is still the best choice, the temp gba emulator for it is very good now, and doesnt have the issues that it used to, also its not the only emulatable console on the card and has plenty of other features

    Better go for this one: R4i Gold 3DS/RTS (r4ids.cn) if you do need a "R4" card.

    Thanks yea ended up going with this one. The supercard dstwo looks like a great card and one day ill get one for now though I gotta get the r4 cause its cheaper and money is a bit tight at the moment cause of Christmas etc.

    If you really plan on getting a dstwo in the near future, don't update your 3ds yet and get a cheap one that supports 6.3 firmware if you don't then get the gold r4i as i think it is the best of the 3.

    By the way i don't know if you noticed but the guy who recommend the r4i gold before me is a representative of the team that make it.
