    Hi there, I just bought a 3ds and I was wondering if an original r4 will work with it?

    I have an acekard 2 and it doesn't work, and I have an original r4 as my "backup card", but I lend it to a friend.

    I have been on the 3ds forum, and it appears that the r4 clones works fine in the 3ds, but I can't find a confirmation that the original will work as well, and I don't want to take the r4 from my friend in vain

    Thanks in advance for your help, and please forgive my bad english

    The original R4 will not work with a 3DS. Some newer clones work, but only because they have updated bootloaders that manage to bypass the 3DS security.


    You're going to need a new flashcart if you want to play DS roms on the 3DS.

    None of the original non-i carts will work on a DSi or 3DS. I'd say get an Acekard 2i or Supercard DS2.
    BTW, When did you become a Global Mod, Minox?
