    that wasn't one of the cards the OP mentioned, although I would agree with you.

    Don't get the one in the link that you sent. That flashcart has a built-in timebomb. What this means is after a year or two, it will stop working entirely (avoid any flashcart that has a year on it). I would highly recommend getting http://www.dsflashcart.com/r4i-gold...s-p-248.html?zenid=ajqfvtm9kaotl2c2l6nlqncbj4 It is highly reliable, works on DS DSi and 3DS, doesn't require any homebrew or custom firmware to run, and works on all OS versions without updates needed.

    Edit: The card you linked does say that it doesn't have a timebomb (in the questions section) but, this is simply not true.

    Taking profit of this thread, could anybody answer me this question?

    I am going to buy a new 2ds xl when (if it is possible) it has CFW, so I can play GBA, SNES... games through emulator, and I want a DS flashcard that has the next features:
    • Wifi compatible (not really needed, but it'd be a plus).
    • Full compatibility with DS games (without freezes nor any troubles).
    • Cheats support (not really needed, but it'd be a plus).
    • Works with latest firmware version (as of today 1.4) ( i know this can change in the new 2ds release, but let's suppose it doesn't).
    I think that is all. I found the r4 gold with a 2017 in it for like 9$ but I have read that it has a timebomb and Idon't want that. Any recommendations?

    Thank you.

    I have the R4i Gold 3DS as well. I only have a 16gb micro in there right now. Wanted to load it up though. You think I can format a a 64gb to FAT32 and load it up? I know it says it only loads up to 32gb card, but that is due to the partition format yeah?

    I recommend this card, it has everything you need. I have had this card for several years with no problem. http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149. However, it will not work with some dsi games such as Pokémon black/white, black/white two, call of duty, and some others as no flashcard is able to.

    I have the same card, R4i Gold RTS 3DS from www.r4ids.cn and bought it from www.nds-card.com and it works with B/W and B2/W2.
    Also they are not Dsi games, they are DSi enchanced games which means they take advantage of the camera etc. of the DSi and use it in-game.
    OP get this card you won't regret it

    There haven't been for years flashcards incompatible with online (of course, you'll have to use unencrypted/wep networks and custom servers)
    Wood (original R4, and r4ids.cn), Akaio (Acekard) and DSTWO all have excellent compatibility
    Almost every flashcard since 2007 supports cheats too
    All flashcards which work out of the box on 7.0 will work on any future version, for Nintendo stopped fighting them - every single slot-1 flashcard is supported if you have CFW

    They work fine in DS mode, though
    Plus there is a DSi mode flashcard (cyclo iEvolution) - however it's still expensive, rare, and outdated

    that's strange, as even after patching the Pokémon white rom, I would always freeze after this one spot after talking with N

    Never had a problem playing them on my DSTTi with RGF's firmware or on my SuperCard DSTWO.

    the
    there is no need to patch these games (B/W, B2/W2) just get a "clean" ROM of 1 of these.
    I am sure they will work, I have passed this spot with N with no issues

    Stop spreading this. No specific flashcarts are confirmed working yet. It is only speculated at this point, wait for the release before using this as a decision maker.

    You should know the fact is that the video has shown that they USED this in their alpha test.
    You're right only if the developer refuses to support it in the future release.
    You need to blame the stupid PR of developers but not me. If the PR was clever enough he should have censored the AK2I label to avoid telling everybody one specific flashcart succeeded in doing that before publishing the video.
