    As it said above is it worth it? I found someone local who apaprently doesn't want theirs and I'm kinda nervous about even getting one as I'm super insanely worried about corruption and want to get a full nand backup ASAP so then with that said, should the r4i 3ds gold deluxe be able to backup all of my nand easily/work OK? Admittedly for 25$ I'd jump on it but I need to know how the thing has worked out from others that have it.

    P.S. I never got an r4 card originally as there were way too many clones/headaches with quality issues so I opted for a ds2 but for 25USD I'm super tempted.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    make sure its the white card (the 3DS mode card. not the DS mode one.). or both of them, if it is go ahead. maybe the guy updated his console and want to get rid of the card

    it's still got it's packaging which is why I saw it, he said he's got it for 90$ and doesn't want it, I'm thinking he saw the hype of online-emunand etc and then it didn't deliver. I'm hoping that's why I'll have to contact him in awhile and see if I've got the cash still. I'm trying to get a second 3ds so I can do streetpass stuff since I was too dumb to buy a second one a long while ago and in my future is games that _require_ streetpass to complete. currently I only have kid icarus uprising that pretty much requires streetpass to complete with spefic numbers of things and I'd like save editing but I'm still waiting I guess.

    it's on 4.5.0-10U and I only got there by accident when I was downloading a layton puzzle. It's been offline since forever and I'm trying to get a second oen that's low firmware so I can do simple/easy streetpass fun.

    You could just set up homepass relay, much faster than.using only 2 3DS's, you can get hundreds of streetpass very quickly using that, you can get a version for windows,Linux, android and I think there is even custom router firmwares to do it too

    Gateway are still the best how ever cheap the R4 is.
    R4 doesn't save Pokemon/Animal Crossing and Gateway will be playing 8.x games soon.

    But if you don't care about that then yeh it is worth.
