    1. I use priceangels because of it's free UK shipping, but I dunno really.
    2. Some cards come pre-flashed, though I don't know which off the top off of my head.
    3. It's down to opinion really. I use an Acekard 2i because it works really well, but is quite cheap and reliable.. It lacks stuff like Real time save, DSi mode, or GBA emulation, but it also gets a little more battery life.

    1. zhuzhuchina is a good site.
    2. Yes there are, it depends on the retailer, just ask if they can flash it for you, most will do it if you are polite.
    3. Yes, the Acekard 2i.

    #1: There hasn't been a real R4 release in years... Nintendo sued them into oblivion and if you had done any research before purchasing your cart you would have known this [​IMG]

    #2: Most legitimate retailers will offer updates if they are available, but might charge an extra dollar or two for it. Make sure not to update your 3DS in the future till you've updated your card though.

    #3: Again, personal preference.... Acekards are simple and cheap and the AKAIO firmware is updated often.

    1. No legit NDS flashcard,man ...
    2. As far as i know, the lastest R4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn has been pre-flashed and no need to install the patch, just use the wood V1.31 to run it.
    3. maybe Acekard 2i
    4. you are welcome [​IMG]

    yea dstwo
    acekard2i
    and ex3i which is by r4 team but has the same features as a supercard like gba and a videoplayer
    also i think there is an ismart that has the same features or similar features as the dstwo and ex3i

    At this point you should just get an Acekard 2i as they are the cheapest and most compatible/updated DS cards around if you just want DS games on your 3DS.

    No cards support 3DS games as none are hacked as far as we know. SO GO CHEAP RIGHT NOW.

    I have 2 older Acekard 2i's the HW:4444 that wont work on the America 3DS's so I had to buy two new ones today with a newer chip built in. I struggled where to get a fair price and shipping in the US.

    I found GAMEPLAYFUN.com to be the only site in the US with official non-cloned chips and cheap prices right now like $13.00 for the newest cards with 3DS comptability built in.

    I would just do that for the next few months and than re-evaluate the scene..

    realhotsutff.com is awesome with my stuff i bought like 10 cards there

    and all of them acekards totally legit and they usually throw in free stuff.. but thats in america though

    but id say acekard is the way to go i love it i have a friend with a cyclos and it seriously sucks i don't like it.


    by the way both prices i say are very fair so yeah id go for that.

    1 and 2. i would go with digitopz.com. They are well known and always have free shipping. if you order a sd card with your flashcart it will work in the 3ds right out of the box and come with popular games.
    3. personal preference, but i recommend r4i gold 3ds because of good price, wood (which is updated regularly), and great homebrew support.

    Your house, robbing your stuff
    Go with Acekard2i, and use AKAIO, (Unofficial firmware, but updates are posted on the Acekard site also..)

    Agree with lpm98 , digitopz is a nice site which provide good items and customer service, i bought the "R4i gold 3ds and SD card with some games pack"from them, the card has been pre-flashed and no need to update any more !

    also i recommend the R4i gold 3ds, acekard or DSTwo !
