    I just got my 3ds and want to choose a flashcard for it.
    I have read many threads on r4i gold 3ds released by r4ids.cn. r4i gold 3ds or ak2i, which one should I choose?
    Besides, I do not want dstwo just because it it too expensive.

    I will choose dstwo because they support gba and snes emulator. But it up to you. But make sure you look up update flashcard for 3ds update. Some of them block off flashcard for no longer to support.

    Thank you.
    I have noticed that r4i gold 3ds release the patch just as fast as dstwo.
    dstwo is a very good one but it's too expensive.
    In fact, I really expect a card which can support 3ds roms.
    As you know, no cards can support 3ds roms till now and I do not want to spend too much money on a card support ds roms.

    How about ak2i? I pay attention to it just because of akaio.

    There are contact issues with the Acekard 2i. That was the reason why I went with the R4i Gold 3DS (r4ids.cn) which has faster updates anyway.

    What do you think is better to buy r4i gold 3ds (r4ids.cn) or ace3ds plus ( ace3ds.com)? btw im on the latest 3ds version 4.3.0-10.

    OliveReed, I recommend you r4i gold 3ds(r4ids.cn) although ace plus can support the latest 3ds system now. As you know, the system of 3DS and NDSi will be updated frequently and no one can ensure that ace plus will release the updating patch very fast in the future. However, r4i gold 3ds(r4ids.cn) and dstwo have released the patch very fast in the past.You can believe that they will do it well to in the future.

    R4i gold since ace3ds is just a R4 clone.

    I wouldn't recommend acekard to anyone, especially to someone who bought a 3ds now, since acekard is blocked in the latest firmware, it won't work on your 3ds.

    No! R4i Gold needs updates to play new roms and stuff. DSTWO is the best flashcart which can play any rom!
