Before I begin, I live in New York in the United States. So I just got a 3DS running version 2.0 yesterday as a graduation present. I've been researching and researching and researching the flashcards for the 3DS and I'm very overwhelmed with the information. I've learned to not update to 2.1 yet until I get a card since the card cannot be updated properly on the 2.1 version. So I'm holding off on that. Mainly I'm just very confused on: 1) where do I buy a flashcard, I've been looking at acekard 2i (which their website is so conveniently not working at the moment), the r4 card and others. I cannot find a reputable website that sells any of these. I live in New York, USA. So I'm trying to find one that will send to me fairly quick within a week or two. I would also like it to come with a microsd card, microsd card reader (USB or SD) and the flashcard itself. 2) do the cards work with the 3DS? 3) if they end up hacking the 3DS and learning how to fully utilize the 3D will the existing cards be able to be updated or will I have to buy an entirely different card? (I understand if this cannot be answered now since no one really knows about the 3DS status) 4) is there any lag or any graphic loss when using the flashcards? Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I'm so new to this and I'm very eager to buy one. I'm very sorry if these questions have been asked before I just feel safer asking these now instead of reading a thread that's over a year old with outdated information.
