    Hello.I have an m3i zero but since the team is dead the card is just useless.So i need to buy a new one.I have this choises: r4i gold revolution,aceKard 2i,SuperCard DS TWO and ezflash vi.Which one do you suggest and why?I need a flashcard with a "future".I mean are the teams that update these card regulary active or they will die soon?I don't want another card to die in a few months.Thanks :)

    i see!The Supercard DStwo indeed seems the best choice for my 3ds.Let me ask you something else.Can the roms that support multiplayer(example pokemon) go online?Because i heard-i don't know if its true-that some flashcards don't support online play for roms

    Supercard can play 99,999% of all games. (i haven't found one that didn't work)
    And abouot online gaming, sometimes i have a little bit of trouble (mutiple tries requiered) with my supercard 2 but overall great experiance.

    Gambia, The
    I suggest the Supercard DSTWO or the EZ-Flash V.i.

    The DSTWO has much more resources but it is very expensive. The team updated the kernels within 24 hours after a system update from the 3DS. You have to know wheter you need a GBA and SNES emulator or a better video player or not.

    The EZ-Flash isn't updated very often but it needn't updates. The kernels are very good. There was only one update that bricked them and the team updated the kernel. It's a bit too expensive, too but if you won't pay a bit money, you'll only get bad or cheep cards.

    both the cards i suggested support online (majority do) only the DSTwo is updatable even if card doesnt boot on the console due to a block (requires a file on the SD card and leaving the card in and selectied and wait 5mins) but you might be lucky if you purchase from zhuzhuchina they normally have latest updates on the card ready for you

    I have a supercard dstwo and it works great, I'm especially glad I bought that one because I could update it even after I discovered that my sister stole and sold my ds phat
