So r4i gold is a flashcart or flashcard? And whatever it is. Other carts/cards which are compatible like r4i gold work to hack 11.4 too right? Even though they are cheap..? I want to save money...

Thanks!!:D:D

Carts and cards are the same thing. Also there seems to be a huge selection of them that work with 11.4. from what I understand nentendo stopped trying to patch Ds flashcarts from working at some point. there are ones out there now setup specifically to install cfw now. There is even one with a switch to install cfw and then to turn back to playing ds games (not needed though you can do it yourself without the switch as I did mine.)

Same thing, and yes. If you want to do ntrboot with the flashcart then look on https://3ds.guide/ntrboot for compatible ones. If to play DS games, just check it says they work on anything over 7.x (anything that works above 7.x will work on every firmware).
Thanks, now I can see the list of cards and I can check but still just to satisfy me, please tell me the name of the cheapest working(good quality??) card for new 2ds xl 11.4... Uhh thanks! And please also tell me that why are some expensive and some cheap when all of them work properly??

why are cars all different prices when they all drive?

they have different features, and some do not work on newer firmware

I always thought 'carts' came from the old GBA days...

and "cards" from the NDS era..

same thing though

If it works over 7.x and says it is compatible with Wood firmware then it should be good enough for your purposes (which I'm assuming is just playing DS games).

i think he wanted a ntrboot card . . .

20 usd is not a lot to pay for the ability to play every single ds game and install cfw so you can play every single 3ds game R4i Gold 3DS Plus、R4i Gold 3DS Plus --nds-card.com . . . and if you are really cheap you can get a ntrboot compatible "timebomb" flashcard card for 10 usd and if and when the time comes that it stops working you can change the date on your 3ds and your good to go. R4isdhc GOLD Pro 2017 for New 3DS /3DS v11.6/2DS/DSi/DS Lite/DS、R4isdhc GOLD Pro 2017 for 3DS 11.6.0-39U/E/J/K --nds-card.com


now if you dont care for cfw then scds2(+) is the strongest ds flashcard you can get (my no. 1 recommendation . . . if you can still find one)Dealer-DSTWO PLUS - SuperCard Team

ak2i is/was amazing and has the same base fw that wood is based on (my no. 2 . . . you need a ds family system or a hacked 3ds to use it for ntrboot . . . not to mention you need cfw to use it on an updated 3ds) Acekard 2i for 3DS V4.3 / DSi V1.44、Acekard 2i,NINTENDO,3DS,DSi --nds-card.com

r4i is probably the most cloned flashcard out there so be careful where you buy from (i actually hate r4 and all its over-hyped glory . . . but its what tempers recommend) R4i GOLD 3DS RTS for New 3DS /3DS v11.6/2DS/DSi/DS Lite、R4i GOLD, R4i gold 3DS RTS, ntrboothax compatible --nds-card.com


if you do end up caving and getting a ntrboot ds flashcard then consider the Ace3DS X it has a switch that changes it between ntrboot ready to ds rom ready Ace3DS X - Ace3DS X + Ace3DS Official Site - WWW.ACE3DS.COM (it even comes with a magnet to use for ntrboot)

if you mean this card then your good

edit: assuming that is indeed the card you have until September 3, 2019 before the card locks itself . . . (just roll back your 3ds's date before it gets there)

Yeah, I mean this card but do I need to buy another micro sd card for this, because besides it, it says "choose micro sd"?

ntrboot does not require the flashcard to have an sd card . . . but if you want to use the card for ds games you will need a sd card for the flashcard . . .

Hey thank you so much man. I just wanted to ask one more question, which is a little irrelevant to this thread. So I wanted to ask if the graphics of new 3DS xl are better than new 2DS xl. Because I bought new 2DS xl, did a lot of settings and came to know that the resolution of new 3DS xl is higher. Is that sadly really true? Or am I mistaken?... I am feeling down because I am not a rich guy and opened my new 2DS xl few days ago and did a lot of settings and cant return in good price... I am really sensitive about my gadgets in terms of screen quality.. Please satisfy me somehow, you are a really great guy

you may be correct the 3ds family systems have one of either two kinds of screen one model is known as TN and the other as IPS. tn and ips screens are indeed different the pros and cons are a matter of opinion . . .

tn pros
non battery taxing (long battery life for the unit)
tn cons
the color bleeds/fades when looked at from an extreme angle

ips pros
more vibrant colors throughout
no bleeding/fading when viewed from any angle
ips cons
drains battery about 10% faster then tn screens (about %10 per ips screen)

the problem here is all n2ds models are dual tn (and that will not likely change . . . the n2ds is an end of life attempt to sell off the extra hardware . . . that means get the cheap shit out the door)

sidenote 1. n3dsxl models seem to have a better chance at being ips than other models
note 2. if you wanted to you could buy a 3ds look for the screens and if not the desired quality send it to nintendo and they will send you another random unit . . . repeat as needed
note 3. every single hyrule edition n3dsxl i have ever seen (irl) has been dual ips (9 for 9)
