    Just wondering which R4 cards would work on a New 3DS A9LH 11.2? Do they all work? I've seen many different kinds like RTS and Gold.. is there one that works the best and what site?

    The general consensus is that the R4i GOLD 3DS RTS is the best DS flash card for A9LH'd 3DS models.

    As an alternative option, you can use the TWLoader

    Haven't heard of this.. Is this like an NDS emulator for 3DS? Place backups on micro SD card?

    Yeah, but it has a very limited assortment of games that it can actually use.

    True, I'll probably just get an R4i card then, I don't really use the cart slot in my 3DS anyways so it would work fine.

    The r4i card I better than the ds supercard two? What are the advantages? Also what do you mean by compatibility, do some titles not work?

    The DSTWO is still the best DS flashcart if price doesn't matter, but the built in CPU is not very useful on 3DS since we have 3DS-mode emulators. Therefore, for a much lower price the R4i Gold seems like the better purchase, unless you plan to use the DSTWO's Free Cheat function a lot.

    What I meant when I said compatibility is, as opposed to loading .nds from the 3ds' sd card. It's probably 99.9% accurate. Also, after a kernel update, my r4i gold rts works on my ds lite, dsi xl, and n3ds.
