    Is it good for 3DS XL? Aiming for running multiplie NDS roms from 1 microsd card.
    Thx

    p.s price was nice, 6.99 - good motivation too :D

    Pokemon Y will update the console to 6.1.0

    make sure you update the Flashcard first before playing pokemon and updating to latest 3DS firmware

    With the latest Firmware
    down4.nds9.cn/fwUpdate_V6.20.rar

    heres the Kernel for the flashcard also
    down4.nds9.cn/r4isdhc-white/r4isdhc1.62.rar

    its not the greatest of card, but it will work

    Yeah, kernel for sd card is not an issue, it support up to 6.3.0-12. But wondering if card is good and reliable :)

    well they do provide Firmware updates, but not fast usually
    Kernel is sub par also but again can always be changed to RGF's i think

    In other words, you get what you pay for.

    Good. Price was more than decent, 6.99$ for such card with free shipping (2$ bucks with human shipping HK Post)
