    You won't find any in stores, if that's what you mean.

    The best way to get one is still to order online.

    *EDIT*
    RHS used to deliver in 2-3 days when I ordered from them. But the last time I ordered anything from RHS was 2 years ago. If you order today, you'll probably get it before Friday. No guarantees, though. You can probably e-mail them to say that you're in CA for a limited time.

    They're not made or sold directly in the US so they're only available via import, so unless you happen to have an individual-run import shop in your neighborhood that sells things like out-of-region games, you'll have to order online like everybody else.

    Large stores that sell gaming stuff don't sell flash carts 'cause companies like Nintendo tell them something like "If you sell this crap, we won't let you carry Nintendo stuff", so you're not going to find flash carts at gamestop or anything.

    EDIT: realhotstuff.com ships from NJ, modchipcentral.com from somewhere in canada (I've had MCC send me a flash cart in three days).

    I did something very fast (or clever enough or stupid enough) I wen to GraigList and search for 'flashcart' on Bay Area and I found this http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/eld/3381559239.html [http://www.hellodsi.com] and then I contact the guy and combine to pay him through paypal and he told me it is completely fine to delivery it Tuesday morning. ;/ I hope so, and then I also bought this SHDC on amazon (amazonbasics 32gb).

    I forget to turn off automatic updates and my menu right now is 4.4.0-10U.
    Will it still work with R4i Gold? (by my reading yes)
    Besides 'automatic updates' should I turn off anything else? Any recommendation for a new owner of 3DS LX (beyond the manual, of course) that loves custom apps, emulators?

    Thanks very much you guys (sorry for so much newbie questions)

    Wait, which one? The "R4i Gold" from R4iDS.CN is the one you want to do for.

    I will try this tonight but I was reading that is impossible to update R4i firmware if my 3DS is on the 4.4.0-10U. (I only left off the automatic update now), is that true? and then I need to use a DS or a 3DS with lower system menu.

    yes, you need a firmware that can boot the card in order to run the .nds update file.

    what part are you lost at?

    the firmware bootloader updates are packaged into .nds files. which means you need a working flash kit to run them. if your ds firmware is 1 level to high, preventing you from booting your flash kit, then you can not run the r4i gold update file. your best bet is to find someone with a ds you can borrow for 5 minutes. boot the card, run the update .nds file, wait, and then power down. after the bootloader has been updated you can run that flash kit on any ds with a firmware equal to or lower than the update file.

    I was trying to say that now I need to find someone with NDS or 3DS to do that, lost in a sense of "man I need to find out a guy to do this update". Thanks for the full explanation :lol:

    Oddly enough I just downloaded rar from here http://filetrip.net/nds-downloads/f...ad-wood-r4-for-r4i-gold-r4ids-154-f31064.html and I unrar this file on the root and create a folder to homebrew and it works, is it only that? I mean, I didn't see any .nds file in the wood.

    Wood is the OS/kernel/software, it's not the same thing as the firmware updates.
