Where is the best, very trustful place to buy a R4i Gold 3DS?

    I know there are about a billion threads like this, but I'm very sceptical and unsure as I've never ordered a flashcart.

    Please don't link me to "www.r4ids.cn". That doesn't help me in my case. I've read multiple threads, but never got a very clear answer. Should I just go with the GBATemp suggested nds-card.com?

    Somewhere in the south
    nds-card.com is okay.
    I bought stuff from there and it was fine.

    How did it go? I ordered, but was sent a shady looking paypal address for "juan8082@163.com " and haven't pulled the trigger on payment yet.

    Aside from the fact that shipping takes a while (a long while) and that order processing can also be pretty slow (which is almost always the case when ordering stuff from China) they are from my experience reliable.

    This is fine. I have personally used the site, and sent the money to that address. It's just how they do it to avoid suspicion.
    They will ask you a lot not to send a message with the payment, because I believe otherwise they get investigated, and their paypal accounts shut down.

    you should probs remove that email, they only give it to you after giving interest in ordering for a reason. ;) But yeah from experience nds-card is great.

    I got my card from nds-card.com, took about a week and a half to get here. Popped the proper wood firmware on it and it works great. The ordering process is weird though, but at least it involves paypal.

    Between insane and insecure
    So a little history behind their dodgy payment system. Paypal actually bans the accounts to flashcart dealers, so they had to setup this roundabout method to avoid being banned.
    I actually ordered an Ak2i from them on June 15 and I got it today. They were extremely friendly and quick to reply, although they are easier to get in touch with depending on the day. Since I am running US Eastern time, they were best to get in touch with round 21:00 and onward.

    also ive ordered from them. my advice is dont get anything that requires a battery (such as the ez4 and such) as they are soldered on and almost impossible to replace because of it. aside from that yea they do pretty good at their work. (the cell batteries also isnt fully charged so that kinda makes it worse)
