    which r4 card is the best?
    i've decided to get a new cart since acekard is such garbage.
    i'm kinda broke, so im gonna try to go with r4

    im looking for

    build quality(i know its a dumb thing to ask from such a cheap flashcart)
    firmware compatibility
    game compatibility

    and aslo i was wondering if any r4 supports the wood firmware with the realtime save.

    thx in advance

    go for the supercard DS TWO

    to be frank, the dstwo is the best flashcard, if you really want a R4, you can go for the R4i gold 3ds, this flashcard runs the wood and can support the rts now

    Is there a place where I can get an R4i Gold 3DS without paying for it with a Credit Card? I only have PayPal. It's not listed on PriceAngels unfortunately.

    http://www.zhuzhuchina.com/store/ takes it, but you need to e-mail them for the paypal info.

    Paypal isn't a bank and doesn't have to follow the laws banks do, so they can take bribes from Nintendo and such to shut down the accounts of stores that sell items Nintendo doesn't like, so flash carts keep their paypal info hidden to avoid it.

    Didn't they stop taking it though? That's what it says on the site.

    DSTwo in terms of features is the best, as it has a CPU in the card that lets it run GBA emulators and SNES emulators at (mostly) full speeds, but its expensive
    Second Best? R4iGold 3DS from r4ids.cn but u gotta get the Revision C(Kirby Icon or Labyrinth Icon). I personally would choose the r4i gold 3ds , seeing as I've had one since launch and it has yet to fail me.

    ^ And if I'm correct, the R4i Gold 3DS is the only card along with the DSTwo that is equipped to be able to bypass future Anti-Piracy methods from Nintendo (provided they don't improve on it even more again.)
    There's also the M3i Zero somethingZ3000 that works now, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it getting constant AP bypass updates in the future.

    Uh, but the R4i Gold's had to put out multiple hardware revisions already... for example mine's an R6, and hasn't gotten firmware updates in a while.

    The R4i Gold 3ds seems to be the top recommended one.I just ordered mine from Gamekool. There's a coupon code CHEERS for the site too, so it'll be a bit cheaper.The reviews on shoptemp seemed to be good though.
