    If I were to buy a new Flash-Cart like, say, an AceKard 3DS would it be pre-flashed and updated to be used with the most recent 3DS Firmware?
    Or would I still need to do all of that myself?

    Buy an Acekard 2i from RealHotStuff, it'll be pre-flashed. You've still gotta download the latest AKAIO, though. But don't worry, it's simple.

    As Frogboy said, buy a AK2i. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT buy the Acekard 3DS. It's a fake card.

    Also, nothing plays 3DS ROMs, in case you weren't aware.

    Well first, like everybody said:

    If a flash-cart says 3DS on it. It is 99.99% FAKE!
    I suggest you use the SCDS21 or the Ak2i2

    1 - Super Card DStwo
    2 - Acekard 2i

    Make sure the store updates it before sending it out to be safe.

    Most places do, but shipping always takes forever if it's free.
