With wood firmware, it is a powerful flasahcard with nearlly 100% DS game compatibility. It updates very frequently which can always support the latest DSi/3DS firmware in the first time. See more details by clicking it!


4.Which 3DS flashcarts can support 3DS roms and paly 3DS games on Nintendo 3DS console?‎

Before talking about these 3DS cards, let’s first recognize the several concepts.
3DS flashcards: Means the flashcards can support 3DS roms, generally, there have four cards, like sky3ds,sky3ds+Gateway 3ds, blue card are used to crack 3DS in order to operate the red card, which is the real card to play 3DS games.

Region Free : Means there have no restriction for you to play games which region are different from your console, so if the card has this features, you can use the card play Japanese games on your American 3DS console.

EmuNAND : This is another function to let you play more 3DS games,which means you can play V6.3 3ds games on your 3ds V4.5 system even through your console version is 4.5.

Multi-rom: This is very easy to understand, just allow you to put more than one games roms into your SD card and play it.

Conclusion: All this crack are based on in system version 4.1 4.5 what GW team found a loophole to be accomplished! The loophole on the higher version has already been fixed, so these 3DS flashcards can only work on 3DS 4.1.0 to 4.5.0 !

The choice of 3DS flashcards:
1. Gateway 3DS
The advantage of Gateway 3ds is their powerful technique, support more games with full functions , 100 game compatibility, support Multi-roms, EMUnand and E-shops games by using the latest firmware 2.2 "OMEGA". It can said the most powerful 3DS flashcards at the moment!

2.R4i gold 3ds deluxe edition
This 3dS card also like Gateway 3ds, has a powerful back team to support its updates. Support EMUnand features , but Multi-rom need waiting! It is said to be released with firmware 4.10. And with the cheapest price for you to play 3dS games. Worth to get one!

3.MT-card
The new amazing 3DS flashcards from MT-card team , become the first flashcards to support Multi-rom features cards. And what is worth mentioning is its special structure: Micro Usb port, a button, Micro sd card slot and LED lights. The inside button can let you select game in Menu or by pressing key.Means support Multi-rom , but not support EMUnand. And save to TF directly, no need of pressing home to backup SAVE.  So with the almost same price, compare to Gateway 3ds, the card is really great and convenient.

4.3DS link
This is card is a completely clone card of Gateway 3ds , with cheapest price but have a poor stability.

Conclusion: Both can only work on 3DS 4.1.0 to 4.5.0! Can’t support Pokermon X/Y at the moment.

Personally Recommend : R4i gold 3ds deluxe edition

Reason: With cheap price, play 3DS roms games, support region, firmware Spoofing,firmware updatable, EMUnand have pretty good stablity. A famous and powerful team to suport its updating so will keep updating forever!

6. Supercard dstwo VS Acekard 2i
You could get a Supercard DStwo if you happen to want to play emulated GBA and SNES on a DS(i). If you have a DS Lite, you could go with an R4/AK2i + Ez 3in1. You'll also get perfect GBA emulation and all DS games work well with AKAIO/WoodR4.
Acekard 2i
may not have any emulators, but you can always download one! Plus there are thousands of downloadable skins and you can even make your own!
Supercard dstwo
has more features than the AK2i such as GBA emulator, video player, it's own SNES emulator (that is better than the ones available to ordinary flashcards), Real Time Saves, Cheat generator, in game guides and lots of it's own homebrew.But it sucks battery life because of the extra CPU on-board.

It all depends on what you want to use the your flashcart for as to whether it is worth the extra money for a Dstwo. If you want to play just DS games then get a AK2i as they are far better than the R4i-SDHC. If you want to use all the extra features then get a Supercard dstwo.
The Acekard 2i is a great card, but DSTwo just has those few things (On-board CPU/Ram, GBA emulation, Snes emulation, ect) that just makes it better.


7.What does slot-1/slot-2 mean ?And what are the differences between slot-1 and slot-2?

If you look on the back of your Nintendo DS Console, there is Slot-1 and Slot-2. Slot 1 cards are very popular, but they are unable to emulate GBA (game boy advance) games and homebrew, so the EZflash 3in1 was created.(for more details,please read Q8)
Slot 1 means the DS game card slot located on the top of the system,which can be used for original DS game cards or a DS flashcard (Acekard 2i, Supercard Dstwo).Usually it fits right into the slot, does not require any additional hardware and relatively cheap,but it can not play GBA homebrew or backups.
Slot-2 means the GBA card slot on the bottom of the system. This slot is for original GBA cards, DS option packs, GBA flashcards, or slot-2 Nintendo DS flashcards.It supports GBA games with great homebrew compatibility.Yet it requires additional hardware to play Nintendo DS homebrew and backups and rather expensive.
