Apparently, the R4I GOLD 3DS is better and cheaper to buy for NTRboot. But for playing ds games, ACE3DS X is more worthy to get.

Does ACE3DS X support 3DS Games in 3DS Mode?

No, the ACE3DS X is not playing any 3ds games or any cia 3ds games. it is still a ds game flashcard but with the NTRBoot compatibility. So after installing B9S/3DS CFW with this ntrboot cartridge, you can download and play CIA games. The Ace3ds X itself doesn’t support 3ds games in the 3DS Mode, or NTRboot mode. As to the direct 3ds game flashcard for your 3DS console? That is the Sky3ds+. It is the best 3ds flashcard to buy in 2017, with very easy installation and full game compatibility. More importantly, it will never be patched by Nintendo, cause it is a emulating card for retail commercial game cartridge.
