    I just bought a ace3ds plus and cant make it work with a dsi 1.4.5.
    I Tried Both The Ace wood firmware and the Aos and when i try to open the cart it says that an error occured :/

    Not SUPER CHEAP but somewhere as a mid-range, I recommend the R4i Gold.

    Please don't recommend that card. It's a shitty clone using hacked Wood R4 as it's kernel.
    If you want a good card from a legit site, I suggest checking out R4i Gold (url on card r4ids.cn) from nds-card.com. NDS-card is GBAtemp's official sponsor, so buying from them helps support the Temp. Not to mention the R4i Gold officially supports Wood R4 and gets regular DSi/3DS firmware updates. It's worth the extra dollars to get a better card.


    That's because you were using a Kernel not a firmware update. You need to update your card to the latest firmware if they have it.
    It would be a much better idea to buy a better card instead of sticking with a cheap clone.

    You need to install install it though an out of date DSi or DS Lite/Phat.

    Yeah pretty much, you need a DSi with the previous firmware that you card already works on.

    The best budget flashcart has been the R4i Gold for a while (r4ids.cn model only), you can find it as low as $11.25, it supports the 3DS in case your kid gets one in the future, and it works with all games thanks to official Wood R4 support.
    There are slightly cheaper carts but they suffer from poor support and may not work with some of the newest games. If you can get great support for a couple bucks more then why not?
    The cheapest price for the R4i Gold currently is at zhuzhuchina.com as they are having a sale. The regular price is $13.00 but you can get it for only $11.25.

    I Wasn't asking for good. i was asking for cheap. thats why i bought Ace3DS Plus - will be awesome on the DSi since it's not updating as much as the 3DS.
    if i wanted better, i would get Supercard DSTWO, which i already have :) bought this for my little nephew

    the ace3ds plus is not the best card on the market, that's the cheapest card though, http://www.thegamerdepot.com/ace3ds-pluscheapest-flashcart-working-great-on-3ds3dsdsids-p-153.html that's the cheapest place out there
