    Hey everyone, back in 2009 i had an M3 DS real with my DS. (I havent been doing this for a while)

    I just bought a DS XL and thought i would start anew :-)

    But man, what a jungle this is :-P.

    I would really appreciate if someone could recommend a flashcart and firmware for me and maybe where to purchase it.

    Thank you

    Cool, maybe in about 7 more years you'll resurface and upgrade to a 2ds :P

    R4iGold (r4ids.cn) is a great card but dsTWO is also nice if you need more featues and price/battery life aren't important.
    Firmware isn't an issue with the cards.

    I'm oldschool baby ;-)

    So with the R4iGold will i be able to play GBA games aswell?

    I remember using the firmware m3 sakura (or something) 6 years ago, are there any new versions of that?

    I think the m3 series is old news? Might want to ask @Crystal the Glaceon about it.

    The DStwo is a good card for GBA emulation as it has an on-board 400mhz CPU and such. It's a little pricey at $40, but worth it imo.

    Thanks i'll look into the DStwo, is it easy to Setup? I would like to avoid any difficult setups if possible.

    But can i still play GBA games on the R4iGold?

    It's easy.
    Yes, but very poorly. The DSiXL has no GBA hardware unlike the dslite/phat.
