    Never heard of a CHIP for Nintendo portable games consoles - only for main consoles like the Wii - so I did a search for '3ds chip 335 games'

    Came up with some results (I won't post links to them, but one had 'Gold Coast' in the title)....
    They looks to me as those they are actually Flashcards that they are selling for ~$60. & it's possible that they are R4 knockoff that may work with the latest 3DS firmware but may not in future firmware updates

    In fact on the front page of one site it does say

    For that price I would forget it.....You can buy something like an Acekard 2i, R4i-Gold [Plus] or even a DSTwo (One of the more expensive flashcards IMHO) for less than that WITH a MicroSD card (I'm basing my results on the prices shown on http://www.nds-card.com/).
    You might even have a MicroSD card already - so just buying the flashcard works out even cheaper

    Those cards I mentioned are the most popular in use today, also have good support even when a new 3ds Firmware update comes out, currently 4.2.0-9 [not sure what the latest DSi firmware is though] (Source - although the Acekard team seems a little slow on the uptake ATM)

    Once you have a flashcard - you can Google Search & get results to sites where you'll be able to get the [pirate] ROMs (Yes - ANY ROM you download will be a Pirated version - even those supplied on the 'GoldCoast' one will be Pirated) which YOU want, instead of a load of games already stuck on a card that you may never want (come on now - does ANYONE actually want to play 'Matchstick Puzzle')

    Note that you CAN'T ask here for where to get ROM's, you'll have to do-it-yourself, but once you find a site it's usually a case of downloading, unzipping & copying over onto a MicroSD card

    Anyway back to your questions....

    Will disable if consoles upgraded to higher system than V1.4.4 .
    Yes - most probably... depending on the flashcard it actually is, you may not get a firmware update that bypasses the next DSi or 3DS firmware

    can any one tell me please i bought A Ds lite console version 5
    A DSLite DOESN'T receive firmware updates - so basically any flashcard will work on it ALWAYS... - but, if the support isn't there - newer games may not run on it
    & IF you decide to get a DSi or 3DS - good chance it won't work at all

    I was going to get a ds chip for it, Does this mean the chip is no good some people say it disables the console or is this ok to buy.
    As I mentioned above - I personally wouldn't buy this. mainly because you don't know WHAT type of flashcard it is, & so you don't know what support it has

    Why did you make a double topic? Reported.
