    Except not every DS game is compatible with TWLoader. A bunch of them aren't. And in order to play Diamond and Pearl, I have to use an unofficial build that removes compatibility with other games....

    This PLUS the poor quality (occasional spontaneous bricking) PLUS it's overpriced (it's a $10 flashcard, for $14 you can get a r4i-sdhc with the "-", for $18 you can get a better performing and strongly recommended r4ids.cn)

    And it doesn't support the small N3DS :P

    Only if you use the 'official' kernel. But not if you use a custom wood r4 that someone made (I can upload if anyone wants). After that, it's a perfectly useful DS flashcard:

    But that seller has photoshopped the picture of the card for some reason

    Get a DSTWO. That's the best card on the scene. Install the whitelist and your done. TWLoader will be a while before it's Upto standard for full comparability.

    TWLoader is extremely slow to load games, though it is progressing nicely I wouldn't call it a stable DS emulator. Not even close.

    At any case go with what slaphappygamer said and just use that flashcard that he linked. OR get a DSTWO for the best results, IF you want to play GBA/SNES games from your flashcard rather than the 3DS itself for some reason.

    dstwo isnt needed since the OP has luma. r4i gold 3ds rts is the one OP needs

    Luma doesn't need a whitelist. If the card is able to boot on any 3ds firmware then the card will work regardless

    DSTwo doesn't need a whitelist so... Also it's better for OP to just get a R4i today.

    Actually it doesn't say it supports the small N3DS, just the N3DS XL

    It probably does support it though since there's no hardware differences between the two

    I have my old Dstwoo (bought with my first gen 3ds back in 2012 ) . Works great on my new3dsXL with b9's + luma . Even better because I don't have to update like before (when new firmware is out). Save state on ds games ...
    Even the gba emulator built in is great, but I prefer a emulator in my home screen for that.

    Oh, come off it? I don't know what people are smoking when they say this. This DSTWO GBA emulator is horrible, and the SNES one is a joke.

    I hope you are injecting GBA games and using nintendo 'VC' (which is actually running the game natively on GBA firmware, just like real GBA)
