    Someone near me is selling the r4i sdhc is there a big difference between that and the r4 gold?

    Not sure about the different, but if its package look like this one: http://www.r4isdhc.com/
    Don't buy it. They have time bomb/kill switch that make the flashcards will stop working after a certain amount of time.

    I'd wait a couple of days. Chances are, you won't even need a DS Flashcard to play DS games any longer

    The R4i SDHC carts are normally DSTT clones. Where as the R4i Gold is more like an upgrade R4 that can run Wood R4.

    TWLoader is far away from being able to load >4MB games. It might not even happen.
    This is a good one: http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    Official Wood R4 kernel, and works with the latest 3DS firmware.

    Frankly, I've never had any issues with homebrew and commercial titles running with the R4i-SDHC 3DS RTS, so I don't really consider it important to have Wood.

    There's never really been too big an issue with the cart nor it's kernel. And at this point Nintendo has stopped blocking flashcarts and stopped making DS games, so there's no real focus on that either.
    I just recommend Wood R4 over most Kernels because it's based on the same Acekard source that akAIO was based on. So it shares almost all the same features and works with all of the same themes.
    Of course other carts that current work aren't bad either.

    Really, I must have missed that as I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.
    Disregard everything I said then.

    R4i Gold is the best that's still being made. Wood is fantastic, much better than whatever the hell the R4i SDHC uses. I accidentally ordered an R4i SDHC and it's sitting in a box somewhere unused.

    I like akAIO's UI, though, I use akAIO on my R4 Ultra SDHC clone cart. It's nice looking. However, it doesn't seem to support booting the EZ Flash IV. So I ended up using YSMenu to autoboot akAIO, unless a button is pressed, since YSMenu seems to be able to boot the EZ Flash cart.

    Are you talking about the r4isdhc.com's one? What menu do they use? I've frankly never used one myself. r4i-sdhc.com's seems good enough.

    "R4i 3DS RTS" from r4i-sdhc.com. The default menu was terrible, I don't remember what it was though. Last time I poked it, I seemed to have gotten YSMenu on it. You said you can use YSMenu to boot into akAIO? I'd be interested in hearing about that, akAIO would be fantastic.

    I may end up buying that r4i sdhc from a local person as buying the r4 gold off a website with shipping and the conversion comes out to be a bit more then I wanted to spend. I wish I could find my dstwo plus.

    But I'll wait for this nds bootstrap I heard there is suppose to be a release soon and ill take it from there. Thanks everyone :)

    I have the r4i gold rts 3ds (r4ids.cn). It's got no timebomb, and works with my n3ds (11.0). Every game I've loaded has played even the castlevania games. Sure, soon you can load nds games from the sd card. The flashcart is the way to go for better compatibility and no lag. I have an 8gb card in my r4i with maybe 30 games and plenty of room.

    Hold off. NDS booting coming soon without flashcarts needed.
