    R4i SDHC 3DS and R4i Gold 3DS card are two popular r4i 3DS cards currently. Both of them successfully broke Nintendo 3DS console and run 2D games.
    But which is better for 3DS console? Which 3DS card should players choose?

    Of course R4i gold 3DS. I just got one with 8GB card from PickEgg. And it only needs 19 bucks with shipping. Totally works with my Nintendo 3DS. [​IMG]

    every one has their own merits.

    R4i gold 3ds card can share the same kernel with r4i ds gold,yet,the r4i-sdhc 3ds doesn't share with its successor.yet,r4i-sdhc 3ds with anti-fake functions and wifi kernel update supporting.

    with R4i-SDHC you can upgrade firmware from 3DS. (info from www.r4i-sdhc.com)
    with R4i gold you can NOT upgrade firmware from 3DS. You need to do that from NDSi/L. (info from www.r4ids.cn).

    I own R4i gold, but planning to buy R4i-SDHC because this reason above. Or will wait few weeks for some news/updates from r4ids.cn and if not then buy SDHC version.

    both carts are shitty clones
    go with the r4i gold (from r4ids.cn)since YWG helps support it with wood

    my advice, avoid both these cheap crappy clones and buy a real flash cart

    neither - get a better cart like acekard 2i, SCDS2, or r4i Gold (www.r4ids.cn)

    You know, I don't think this should be at the console section...

    On topic, neither. Get a reliable one such as cyclo, acekard or supercard. There's more to add though [​IMG]

    Acekard is a good yet affordable option

    R4i gold 3ds is the first card to hack DSi 1.4 version firmware,and at present,it can work perfect on DSI V1.4.2 and 3DS V2.0.0,for me it is the best flash card for Nintendo 3DS.
