Ace3ds X official site

This card will be launched from ACE3DS.com, which is the official site of ACE3DS PLUS too. It is also a very old flashcard company like the r4ids.cn and r4i-sdhc.com, with years’ history and regular responses for 3ds new firmware. Their Ace3ds plus card is the cheapest ds game flashcart in the market, supports ds games on all 3ds/dsi firmware consoles but it does not support further update if one day Nintendo blocks it.

Same
Support NTRboothax Yes Yes
Support Boot9strap/3DS CFW Yes Yes
With button Yes No
Support DS games Yes, via pusing the button to DS Mode. Yes, after follow a guide to set it back to NDS Flashcard.

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.
