Which R4 gold card supporting 3DS Games or 3DS CFW on 11.6/11.7 firmware?

Today’s R4 Gold or R4I Gold card is with amazing function, it can finally support Nintendo 3ds games on your console via installing CFW firstly. But which is the correct R4 Gold card to buy? For letting you avoid to choose the wrong R4/R4i gold flashcard, we are writing this post.

Which R4 Gold/R4i gold are still working in 2017?

Which is the best R4 Gold to buy for playing Nintendo 3ds games?

r4i gold 3ds ntrboothax

After seeing the above chart, you can find that only 1 R4I GOLD card can support 3DS Games. However, this card is only working on the very lower 3ds firmware consoles to play free games. So apparently, it is not our best R4I Gold choice for hacking 3ds roms. Then which is the right card to choose? The answer is the R4i gold 3ds rts, though it is only playing NDS games, it is also compatible with the NTRboothax, which is very popular and easy to use for installing Boot9strap and CFW to your 3DS family system-handheld. Then with CFW running on your 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS/NEW 2DS XL device, you can play every 3DS Game with CIA format. That’s to say, you can play both eshop 3ds games and retail cart 3ds roms with a very cheap R4I GOLD 3DS card($20.5).

Does R4i gold 3ds support 3DS V11.6 and will it support V11.7 with NTRboot?

Yes, not only the R4i gold 3ds itself can work on 3DS V11.6.0-39 to play NDS games, it also works with NTRboot method for getting B9S/3DS CFW on this latest 3ds system version machine. The 3ds v11.6 is not bringing a new hardware, just a regular and small update. So don’t worry, you still can use the R4 Gold card to play NDS games or play CIA 3ds games. As for its compatibility to the next V11.7 FW, I have to say, both NTRboot exploit and R4i gold 3ds are not that easy be patched by Nintendo, unless the company releases a major update while its main focus is on Nintendo Switch in these days. All in all,  the conclusion is, even on the future 3DS V11.7, the R4 gold 3ds should work and so does the NTRboot.

R4i gold deluxe or Ezflash redux, which card is playing free 3ds roms on 3DS/2DS XL 11.6?

Both the R4i gold 3ds deluxe and EZflash redux card with very lower price to support 3ds game roms, but can they work on the 3DS V11.6.0-39 and which is the best 3ds card to buy for 3DS or NEW 2DS XL console with 11.6.0-39 firmware? You can find answers here.

R4i gold 3ds deluxe and 3DS V11.6

R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe Edition have all the function of R4i Gold 3DS, Enjoy DS games, listen music,read e-books and play homebrew apps. But this card is a 3DS mode flashcart. That’s mean you can play 3DS roms on 3DS(XL) console via this flashcart. What’s more it support mult-roms, so you can hold more than one games in the same micro sd card. It’s very useful. Emuland functions let you play 7.x system games on 3DS 4.1~4.5 firmware. That’s amazing !

However, R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe is a clone of Gateway 3DS, so it have most of the functions of Gateway 3DS. The price will be much cheaper than Gateway 3DS. And cause it is cloning technology from 3DS Gateway, it can only support 3DS Roms on V4.1 to V4.5 3DS/3DS XL consoles.To the latest updated 11.6 3DS FW, it is not compatible, don’t buy R4i gold 3ds deluxe!

EZflash Redux and 3DS 11.6 FW

EZflash redux is the 3ds flashcart released by, it is supporting 3ds games on 3DS family handhelds, including 3ds, 3ds xl(ll), new 3ds, new 3ds xl(ll) and 2ds consoles. But EZ flash redux is only playing 3ds games within firmware range from v11.2 to lower versions. And currently, it has the following 3ds cart features to run Multi-3ds Rom on Nintendo 3ds. So it can’t work on 3DS 11.6 FW too.

  • Play 3DS Games: support to run free downloaded .3ds roms on the 3DS, NEW 3DS and 2DS console.
  • Support Multi-rom and Menu:support users to play Multiple 3ds roms and choose a 3ds game to play on the screen menu.

As for the cheapest 3ds game card for 3DS/2DS XL V11.6, that’s should be R4I B9S. It has a price tag around 20$. It supports you to install b9s and luma3ds cfw to play all 3ds games with CIA format. Either it is a 3ds eshop game or 3ds cart rom.
