I just bought this a couple days ago for use in my 3DS. I somehow updated my 3DS to 4.2.0-9 and now the cart is blocked for use on my 3DS. My question is, can I use this 3DS compatible card in my DSi XL while I wait for new firmware for my 3DS unit?

It looks like the DSi carts are specific to the console, but I've read a few things that look like this 3DS cart might be able to do both??

Just a bit confused is all. I don't care about GBA support, cheats, etc. So the R4 was an easy choice (having owned 2 in the past and familiar with them)

Should I consider a different cart for my DSi XL? Not sure which is best these days on supporting the widest range of games with quick firmware updates

Thanks in advance for info!

Just go for R4i Gold 3DS (www.r4ids.cn Wood supported) if you need a R4 card, that's the best choice..

The sdhc one can be used on all ds's

But only if you dont update them to the latest firmwares whenever nintendo sends out new ones.

You'd need a dslite or phat to update your r4 card

if people were to go for an educated choice then you shouldn't suggest to them to buy an R4.
The Acekard 2i and Supercard DS2 function similar to the R4, just better...
Plus the R4i Gold isn't much of an improvement over the SDHC card.

FireGrey, in fact, r4i gold(r4ids.cn) metioned here does better than ak2i when coming to releasing patches for the new system version.R4i Gold always released it's patch within 24 hours.You can read some threads on it on this forum.

In my opinion, R4i Gold 3DS card is not only better than AK2i and DS2 in quality and faster updating support, but the most important thing, it's much more cheaper than both of them. Anyway, the fact speaks for everything!
