    I've been meaning to buy a Supercard DSTWO, though I've been put off by the lack of reputable sites to buy from.

    I've been looking at http://www.cheapr4i.com/

    Has anyone used them before, and would recommend? Or has anyone else got any other recommendations for a reputable site with fast/cheap shipping to UK?

    FYI I'm buying to use with a 3DS and have no access to any other system.

    Now from what I've researched and read. As long as I don't update my 3DS firmware first and rather, I update to the newest compatible firmware of the DSTwo and then update my 3DS. All will work fine?

    I presume this is true for future 3DS firmwares? If Nintendo release new firmware, I just wait for DSTwo firmware to be updated, then flash using 3DS before upgrading 3DS firmware?

    Thanks, I'm pretty new to this stuff and I've been doing my homework for the last few hours. I think I've got a grasp on most of it... now just to find where to get one from. :lol:

    Yes, always make sure the DSTwo is more updated, if needed (sometimes it doesn't need to update).

    It's illegal in the UK, so don't. Just don't.

    I just bought the DSTwo from thegamerdepot.com. $41 with free shipping!

    Probably gonna have a couple of weeks to wait before it turns up though. Customer Service seems good so far..They reply, which is always helpful! :)

    One's inner self
    in the UK, use zhuzhuchina.com, they have good postal times (under 2 weeks to the UK, ive even had under a week), and they update the cards to the latest Firmware before shipping

    yes always update flashcard before system, DSTwo does have alternative methods but the most efficient method is the normal

    Flashcard has to be able to boot to run the update file, so it needs not to be blocked (not a hard concept but people still fail to grasp it)

    if there is a accident and the 3DS gets updated the DSTwo has another method but its should only be used if there is no other way, as you cant see the progress you have to follow instructions very carefully and hope you left it long enough. but dont worry about that if you understand, card updated first to work on the new firmware, console after you know the flashcard will work on it

    I can vouch for cheapr4i.com. They have good reviews on shoptemp too. I bought a dstwo from them last Wednesday, arrived last Saturday. Pretty good considering I ordered a micro sd card from Amazon on the same day and it hasn't arrived yet. Also the dstwo was pre upgraded so just had to copy the OS files and it works straight away :)

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I ended up using nds-card, because I needed two, and it was a better price. :D
