    So i recently found that near my city some people sell DSTWO for 700 pesos i think is expensive but the DSTWO are rare now i have a R4 but i want to ask some things about the DSTWO

    How can i know if i can update that DSTWO to play 3ds games?(I have a 4.5 3DS)
    What are the exclusive emulators for the DSTWO?
    Are the exclusive emulators working right?
    is the DSTWO faster than a R4i SDHC Dual-Core?
    Is that price right?
    Do you think i need to buy it insead of a bigger Micro SD for my 3ds?

    i want to know what do you think of that flashcard

    You can't use the DSTwo to play 3DS games- you need the DSTwo+ for that. They're different hardware- you can't just slap a firmware update on an original DSTwo and turn it into a later model.

    The only DSTwo-exclusive emulators worth using are CatSFC (SNES) and TempGBA (GBA). Of those two, only TempGBA is actually worth using- and it's probably the best way of playing GBA games on a DSi. It's not perfect, though- and the 3DS, with homebrew, is capable of running GBA emulators on its actual hardware.

    If your current flashcart works fine with your 3DS, there's absolutely no reason for you to upgrade. Look into setting up homebrew on your system- it can run emulators significantly better than the DSTwo's onboard CPU.

    I readed that you could update the newer models of the DSTWO to DSTWO+ when it first released

    The chances of your card being of the absolute newest batch are slim, unless you can verify that it's brand new, straight from the factory. This is the thread you're probably talking about.

    Even then, it doesn't sound like the upgrade process is especially reliable.

    If it's an option, sure. It'll run emulators far better than the 3DS or DSTwo.
