    I have been searching for a flashcart that will update to work on future 3ds updates, and possibly play 3ds games if its possible to do so, I have looked at a couple and these are the few I found:
    Gateway 3DS​
    ,
    R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe​
    ,
    Sky3DS​
    , Acekard 2i and Acekard 2.1.
    If theres one thats better than these please tell me and if not which of these is the best (Can work with future updates of 3ds and play 3ds games possibly) Thank you!;)

    Gateway 3DS, without doubts. It contains two cards: a DS one and a 3DS one.

    R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe is only for DS games.

    Sky 3DS is a copy of Gateway 3DS.

    For 3DS flashcarts, your only real options are Gateway and Sky3DS. From what I've gather from other people's posts over time, Sky3DS works well if you just want an easy flashcart to play your backups. Gateway will play your backups and homebrew, but requires a bit more attention.

    For DS flashcarts, R4i Gold and DSTwo are your main options. R4i Gold is cheaper and plays all standard DS homebrew and backups. DSTwo does those as well and as additional internal resources some homebrew can utilize for better performance. Its main drawbacks are it kills the 3DS's battery life, even when sitting idle in the 3DS with the 3DS on, and it's twice as expensive as the R4i Gold.

    no card is guaranteed to work forever, no matter what cart you buy you are taking a risk.

    The only ds cart you should get is the r4i gold. No exceptions.

    Only ones people will recommend here is the dstwo and r4i gold anyway. Dstwo is sold out though:angry:

    DS games aren't region locked, even retail ones
