How to choose cost-effective and suitable for your flashcard?

Hello everyone, Flashcard is well knew by most players of Nintendo 3DS,DSi,DS,DS Lite ,as it not only allow players to enjoy games for free to save a lot money but also can be used for backups.. But how can we choose the best flashcard? Here is my analysis for your reference:
There are kinds of flashcards in the market now, and their technology and kernels have big gap.The main flashcards are : DSTWO(,M3 card(,Acekard(,R4i SDHC (,R4i Gold 3DS(,R4i Gold Plus(,R4itt (R4itt,net),R4iSDHC(,R4i-Gold(,DSTT and the original R4 DS. Others almost are fakes or copies.

DSTWO also called Supercard. The official website is The technology team of this site is one of the most professional for flashcard. It keep updating for the kernel upgrade, firmware support, and service with powerful function. It support lots of the current games with their own kernels, but the price is a bit high.

M3 (From
There are 3 kinds M3 cards from till now: M3 DS Real support DS and DS Lite; M3i Zero and M3 Zero (GMP-2003) support 3DS, DSi,DS,DS Lite.Compare with DSTWO,M3 cards also with powerful functions and support lots current games, the price is much cheaper than DSTWO but it still a bit higher than other R4 flashcards.But DSTWO technology is a bit better than M3 cards.

Acekard (From
Acekard includes three kinds, too. First is Acekard for DS, second is Acekard 2 for DS Lite, and the latest version is Acekard 2i for 3DS and DSi. The technology and price both are mezzo with lots of games supporting (Sure the technology for Acekard team is much better than all R4 cards). The only disadvantage is sometime the upgrade patch update a bit slow; we need to wait some days for the update patch when Nintendo release the new firmware.

R4i SDHC (From
There are three R4i SDHC cards from R4 SDHC for DS and DS Lite, R4i SDHC V1.4X for DSi, R4i SDHC 3DS for 3DS. R4i SDHC V1.4X will be updated when the firmware was released, the different version actually have same basic hardware but with different names updated. The price of these cards is much cheaper and the kernel and patch also will be updated soon to support the latest firmware once the new firmware released

R4i Gold 3DS (from
R4i Gold 3DS is the upgrade version of R4i Gold, the website was updated to and it support all the Nintendo consoles. This team has strong technology ability and it just develop one powerful flashcard-R4i Gold 3DS and keep updating the kernels, patch…to support the latest firmware at the first time. Most games are supported with R4 wood kernel

R4i Gold Plus (From
The previous version of R4i Gold plus is R4i Gold V2.0.As 3DS games and console developing, team release R4i Gold plus to instead R4i Gold V2.0, there are two different package version of R4i Gold Plus: Deluxe version with card writer & Simple package. Deluxe version is with USB card writer which can be used to upgrade R4i Gold Plus card without any console. The price and technology of updating both are mezzo.

R4itt (From
There are too many difference versions for R4itt, the first two version are R4itt V1.6 and R4itt 3DS, it keep releasing new cards with the firmware updating. You need to buy their new version card when Nintendo release the new firmware. The price of R4itt is cheaper but the kernel and patch update too slow.

R4isdhc (From
R4isdhc also called R4i Happy box which including four cards with different colors- White, Red, Black and sliver. Same as R4itt, a new card will be released by the official website to instead old card once Nintendo release their new firmware (there are different version for year 2012 and 2013,too), the price of these cards are cheaper but sometime, users are hard to get the patch to update the previous cards once new version was released (The team release the patch too slow or there is no patch the update the original card at all).

R4i-Gold (From
R4i-Gold comes from the same technology team with R4isdhc.Same as R4isdhc,Once Nintendo release their new firmware, this official website will develop out a new card to instead the previous one which will make the previous users hard to get their original card to update. The price sure is much cheaper.

DSTT (From
There are two kinds DSTT card-DSTT for DS,DS Lite & DSTTi for 3DS and DSi. Users need to wait for longer time for the update patch to support new firmware as their website is a bit slow to update this information. Price for DSTT is cheaper but DSTTi’s price is in a middle lever.

R4 DS (From
R4 DS is the first flashcard in the market which was the most popular one in the past time. But the technology team was disband as the legal disputes with Nintendo. Now R4 DS use Wood R4 kernel. R4 DS support DS and DS Lite consoles, it’s the perfect choice for DS and DS Lite users with cheapest price and Stable performance.

Above are some tips for different flashcards, below is a summary for your reference:
For DS and DS Lite users:
R4 DS is the best one as the cheapest price and Stable performance. It have no any effect of firmware upgrade.

For DSi,DSi XL,DSi LL users:
then DSTWO,M3 Zero, Acekard 2i,R4i SDHC,R4i Gold 3DS,R4i Gold Plus should be better choice as they can be upgraded even though a new firmware released from Nintendo.(Other cards may need to buy a new version as the previous version will stop upgrade sometimes)

For 3DS,3DS XL,3DS LL users:
DSTWO,M3i Zero,Acekard 2i,R4i Gold 3DS,R4i SDHC 3DS,R4i Gold Plus are recommend, the same reason as above.

All the flashcards in the market can be in 4 different levels in Summary:
First level: DSTWO, M3 Cards, Acekard card.
These cards with powerful factions and their technology teams focus on the software updating, there is no need to buy their new version only when it was broken, because users can keep these cards upgrading even the firmware was upgraded by Nintendo, but their price is a bit higher than others.

Second level: R4i Gold 3DS, R4i Gold Plus, R4i SDHC
Same reason as above, users no need to buy new version new Nintendo firmware was released, the official team will keep their software updating, users just need to download the upgrade patch or latest kernel to make their cards supported new firmware. The prices of these cards are much cheaper than above cards. These cards are high recommend.
Now, Let’s focus on R4i SDHC which has several versions: It includes different versions which marked” R4i SDHC V1.4X”, The “X” means different firmware, such as V1.43 or V1.45…The team will release new version R4i SDHC V1.4X card once Nintendo released the new firmware. BUT the previous version can be still upgraded to support the latest firmware, users just need to download the patch or latest kernel from the official website to finish the update

Third level: R4itt, R4isdhc, R4i-Gold
There are too many different versions for these cards, because once a new firmware was released by Nintendo, these cards may develop new version, and then the previous version may stop updating sometimes. There are also different versions for different years. Both of their hardware and software are not as much Professional as two levels.. Users may need to buy their new version cards once firmware was upgraded. So these cards are not recommended.

Fourth level: cards from,
Cards from such website are almost fakes, the software update too slow, there is even no any update for some old version, it’s better to avoid buying these cards.

If you have any question, please kindly leave a message or contact us by mail directly, we will respond as soon as possible, Thank you!
