    I lost my ds lite and cylco ds which i had been using for god knows how long so instead of getting a dsi i thought why not get the 3ds , so my question is what cart would be best based on the 3ds. I guess that would mean the dsi part of the carts would be rendered useless since i'm going straight to the 3ds, ive been looking around the forum and saw the supercard two is really good but would that be good if I need it just to play my backups on the 3DS ? I dont mind paying for legit 3DS games when they come out but i do want to continue my backups on the Nintendo 3DS

    Ive used the Cylco DS evolution before as well as EzFlash 4 and 5 so i do have some background in flashcarts

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I would say your on the right track. Supercard dstwo would be my pick It's my favorite card and It is supported on the 3ds. Could also go with new Cycloievolution If you wanted to but I don't have one of those so I'd just be going on what I have heard about It. How long all the current flashcards work on the 3ds remains a mystery.

    No cart plays 3DS games and we don't know if any of the current ones will be able to.

    Acekard.com reports the latest Acekard 2i units come with the latest firmware (for the 3DS) already applied, and the standalone update should be released soon. Other than that, all the other carts will need to be run on a DS/Lite or DSi/XL to apply the 3DS update before they will work on the 3DS.

    CycloDS iEvo
    SuperCard DSTwo
    AceKard 2i


    Make your pick from those. iEvo has DSi mode, DSTwo has a processor and the AK2i is cheap with good compatibility.

    Cyclo Evolution DSi mode wasn't working on 3DS last time I checked, even on European 1.0.0-0E unit with European bootstrap.
    DS mode is working fine.

    hmm i never even knew the acekard was an option actually, would i really need the dsi features for the 3ds I think what i'm honestly looking for is a flashcart that lets me play regular DS, i dont think any flash carts currently even have a chance to play 3DS games right?

    I was thinking the cyclo would be left out bc i wouldnt need dsi mode for a 3ds right ?

    Cheers for the advice, think I'm gonna grab the supercard DSTWO - couple of quick questions first though - is it likely that a 3DS flash cart will come out anytime soon? Is it possible for the supercard DSTWO to be permenantly blocked by a software update (I'm guessing you'll just be able to re-flash it if it's blocked)?

    *EDIT* One extra one: where's a legit/cheap place I can buy the supercard DSTWO (I'm UK based)? Cheers

    1 - We don't know. Nobody knows jack shit about 3DS hacking yet, and it's unlikely we'll know a lot for a while. The DS is fully hacked, but it came out in 2004. Shit doesn't get hacked overnight.

    2 - Considering the security we've seen thus far is just an update to the DSi's type of security, it's unlikely that flash carts will be able to remain blocked, as firmware updates should fix them.

    Thanks for the quick reply

    1. I totally appreciate that, I just haven't been following the scene since I purchased my M3 Real and was wondering what the current state of affairs was, I know the 3DS has been out for a while in Japan and this whole topic was started based on the fact that there are cards out there claiming to be able to run 3DS software

    2. Cheers, perfect

    3. Thanks again, I'll go for: http://www.cheapr4i.com/supercard-dstwo-fo...very-p-200.html then

    DS mode compat is ok, DSi mode compat (main selling point) is shit.

    Does work on 3DS out of box though.
