    I see most of you guys on gbatemp recommend getting a "R4i GOLD 3DS RTS" (https://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149).
    Unfortunately it´s out of stock and it seems unknown when it´s back again.
    Nds-card.com seems to recommend "R4i Gold 3DS Plus" instead (https://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?PageNo=6&ProID=575).
    Is there any big advantages/disadvantages with any one of those I am missing? When reading the description on the site I guess it´s pretty clear:

    "R4I GOLD 3DS PLUS is same as R4I GOLD 3DS RTS card, You can think they are the same card, they have the same functions.
    The only difference is that there's a NTRboot loader switch, you can learn how to do it from the official website."

    So that´s it? The only difference is the switch? And that would make the "Plus" version superior?
    In that case I guess it´s just to make an order and stop waiting for the "RTS" version to get back into stock?

    Thank you!

    And the "time bomb" destroys the cards function after a while or similar? The RTS version have a time bomb? But the Gold doesn´t?
    What is the reason for the time bomb? To make customers need to buy a new card after a while?

    Oh.. Thanks man!

    But if I'd buy a "R4i Gold 3DS Plus" from "https://www.nds-card.com" (which is a gbatemp sponsor, right?) I should be fine? No Time Bomb (I understand this Gold card shouldn´t have a Time Bomb anyway but..) or other upcoming issues?

    Yes yes and yes. Just make sure to buy a well known confirmed good one such as an r4i gold.

    The cheapest flashcart compatible with ntrboot is the R4 Gold Pro, which is only 10$ on nds-card

    I'd just bought r4isdhc.com dual-core for CNY28(4.3USD) in taobao and flashed with ntrboot for that.

    Cheers dude I have to find out the cheapest way to get the job done probably have to buy ocarina of time. I don't want to wait weeks for a card.

    Edit1: okay ordered freakyforms from amazon gonna try that, then I will return the game :)

    Neither Ocarina of Time nor Freaky Forms is going to help you one bit. You should cancel your order.
