    There is no difference for running ds games or homebrew, everything will work on .com card
    Gbatemp just loves .cn version for some weird reasons like "official wood menu support" while in reality all other manufacturers have copied everything from it a very long time ago.

    Those "dual core" models only get support for about a year then they are dropped

    the r4i gold has continuous support
    What emulators are you wanting on them?

    Dude, there are so, SO many "R4i" and "Gold" clones. Jesus.

    Clones of clones of clones of clones of...

    And which one is the original one? Nobody knows.

    Because it costs money to manufacture a device that not many people aren't buying. they wouldn't exactly be making a lot of money.

    There's a big difference between a flashcart (which was once very popular) being worth the price and being popular, and the latter certainly isn't the case, today. It is, however, recognized for its efforts.

    I kept hearing that the dstwo could play nes, snes, gb, gba, mega drive, etc..etc..

    So yeah it just peaked my interest a bit. I mean shit dude I play emulators on my xbox still and on my pc.

    Normal r4 cards can use emulators but the SNES and GBA emulators are horrible. DStwo has a much better emulator for those.

    Wait, so the R4i Gold RTS card plays DS games and works on upto 9.8.0?!

    I've only managed to find one place selling the DSTwo and they're charging $80 for it :/

    Maybe it is just the user base of the SDHC one but they are always on here and cant get it to work. No problems with the .cn one.

    But yes both SHOULD be work.

    It doesn't, they have released and abandoned about 12 hardware revisions. As for sysmenu support - not needed for the last 3-5 years and won't be needed in the future anymore.
    DSTWO is a bit better but still horrible compared even to psp.
    https://pongupdates.wordpress.com/flashcards-working-on-3ds/ - any of these cards will work on 9.8.0
    DSTWO is not worth it unless you really need slow and buggy snes/gba emulators.

    I didn't know about that. Is it true? I thought they are just changing stickers each which with different type of fancy stickers and branding to make their product look 'new', while hardware is pretty much unchange every year. and my thought is their updates will support previous year cart

    No. I have the 2012 model (it says "new" on the sticker) which is unusable on 6.x+

    obviously flashcarttimewarp fixes this

    I have two of them. Good enough. Cheats don't work, but roms and homebrew seem to have no issues. MSET isn't a problem either.
