    Hello everyone. I'm very new to DS scene.. I have couple questions regarding flashcarts.
    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Is there any 'future proof' flashcarts out for 3DS/DSi/DS Lite?
    I know that its early to tell but is there confirmed 3ds rom supported flashcarts?

    2. What exactly is 'card reader'?
    I'm plan to buy acekard 2i but 'card reader' is missing. (description from zhuzhuchina)
    are these microSD/HC reader or flashcart reader to flash firmware of flashcart?

    Thanks in advance.

    It means a microSD card reader for your computer.

    Not all DSi flash carts can be updated. In particular stay away from R4-named clones, they most often do not have an updateable bootloader.

    The Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTwo, Cyclo iEvolution, and EZ-Flash V all have updateable bootloaders and are suggested carts.

    R4 Revolution's pretty cheap. If you want to play more games though, get an Acekard. I'm having a bit of trouble adding games on mine's as of late. These damn pokemon games eat up a ton of space and then I'm in the process of finishing a SRW game so that issue will work itself out. Soon, I'll add White for my brother to play when I can get the 1.26 kernel.
