    I just bought the R4 RTS 3DS Gold card, and I have no idea what to do with it. I have a New 3DS XL with 11.4.0-37U firmware. What do I do???

    If you want to use R4 Wood Kernel, you need to go with R4i GOLD 3DS RTS , @Lilith Valentine recommend it.
    But, if you don't want Wood Kernel Features, you can go for a $4 cheaper R4i-SDHC 3DS RTS, which reccomend by @gnmmarechal.
    Both of them support real time save and cheats (Not real time cheating like DSTWO).

    But, if you want to use ntrboothax, Acekard 2i is the only option now. But, this one doesn't support real time save.
    Since R4 Wood Kernel is a modified version of the Acekard Kernel, you should get all R4 Wood Kernel features with Acekard 2i.

    This is what R4 Wood Kernel offer:

    1. Format the microSD card to FAT32, w/ 32KB Cluster size.
    2. Download the kernel and woodR4 for the R4i Gold 3DS RTS (here)
    3. Extract the RAR file and place the files from it on the root of your microSD card.
    4. Place some NDS roms on the SD card.
    5. Safely Eject the SD from your computer and place the microSD in the R4i Gold 3DS RTS.
    6. Put in DS and all should work fine.
