    Hey everyone im pretty new here and i allready got a question.

    Since nds-bootloader is still in his early days, i want to know which is the best NDS flashcard for the 3DS?
    All i want is to play NDS.roms on the 3ds , i got luma etc. so no 3DS.rom compability needed.

    Idk which to go for since there are plenty with Gold, Gold pro, deluxe etc. .
    And i want to know which is the best stabilitywise, featurewise and pricewise.

    Hope you can help me guys.

    Regards.

    I had exactly the same question few weeks ago and the R4i GOLD 3DS RTS is the one I got recommended:
    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    It seems to be the one that gets the most recommendations here.
    Works perfectly for me with no issues.

    If you prefer to use a German shop.. I ordered mine from here http://www.elespiel.com/nintendo-3ds/91-r4i-gold-3ds-flashcard.html
    They're listed as an official retailer on the manufacturer's site www.r4ids.cn
    But then I realized they shipped it from China anyway. :D So I guess it doesn't really matter where you order it from, as long as it's the r4ids.cn cart.

    I use Supercard DSTWO myself, and I wouldn't trade it for any other. While it's battery consumption is ridiculous and would not recommend it if you play a lot on the move, it's great for it's features that the internal processor of the cart allows - such as real-time save states, cheats, and more.

    edit: ninja'd. If the above cards actually allow RTS and cheats etc. then nvm lmao, I guess DSTWO is just meh then?

    In the past, that internal processor best for emulation, allow DSi to play GBA games.
    But, since 3DS with CFW can play GBA games through Virtual Console Injection, I don't see a benefit on that anymore.

    PS. NDS Flashcard with RTS + Cheat function exist before DSTwo came out such as CycloDS or M3i Zero.
    Both of them doesn't have that internal processor to begin with, so internal processor doesn't require for RTS + Cheat.

    I think all Kernel include YSMenu can do that.

    Since R4i Gold 3DS RTS can use with Lastest R4 Wood Kernel, it should support all DS games.
    And NDS doesn't have region lock, only some DSi games do.
