    Hi guys,
    I am new to 3DS and flashcarts since I only just got a 3DS last week.

    I want to be able to play DS roms on my 3ds using a flashcart that is not too expensive.
    Which are my options and which one do you guys recommend.

    Also if you could also post a link from which I can buy it from it would be cool.

    p.s I live in Australia. and I have the original 3DS with firmware 8.1

    DS Two is probably the best ds flashcard on the market and hasn't been blocked for a very long time now and even if you do accidentally update the 3ds after nintendo blocks it from working you can still update the flashcard to work even if you get that black screen error.

    you got outdated info..
    first being "on the market" dstwo yes it is the best ds flashcart. but its no longuer being produced... it is now hard to find. they are out of stock on most places... and other places they are sell it too much expensive...

    second. since the firmware "7.something" they stopped block any cards. most r4 cards available now are not blocked, if the card worked on the firmware 8.x the update thing is now useless because.. well.. you only needed to update the firmware to unblock it.. which is not a thing anymore...

    Well i guess i should research next time then... sorry but i still own my ds two and had no idea they had become rare and expensive, i knew that the firmware is kinda irrelevant now at this stage but seeing as op is new to the ds/3ds hacking scene, if nintendo suddenly decided to start blocking a couple of them again sometime in the future (altho its highly unlikely but not impossible) OP could be left with a card that won't even work again if he updated that's why i recommended the ds two. obviously now though, an r4i would be the best option.
