    So, uh, I'm trying to buy a flashcard for my 3ds locally because no CC available at the moment.

    I found that the only flashcards I could buy are either r4isdhc dual core 2017/gold pro 2017 and pic related: https://m.imgur.com/xbcQoyS

    Heard the former are trash because time bomb. Never even saw the latter.

    Opinions?

    even if they have the timebomb which most of them do, you can always run YSmenu or Wood as a primary kernel instead of the dafult one to avoid the timebomb, you lose some features but tbh we are in it for the games and not for extras x)

    Wait, I thought Wood wouldn't work for cards from r4isdhc.com.

    I would love that not to be true, I certainly miss wood and would love it on my Gold Pro 2015

    YSmenu runs on my R4i Gold Pro 2017, not sure about wood

    Do I lose any compatibility for using Ysmenu as the kernel?

    you have trouble with some DSi enhanced games, pokemon WB/WB2 don't work straight up, other that I've been running FE Shadow Dragon, Solatorobo, Elite Beat Agents and some others with no issues

    So I'd have to switch to the R4 kernel if I wanted to play Pokemon B2
