Which card to buy for playing free 3ds games without using AK 2I?

Though AK2I is not playing 3ds games, there are other flash carts support Nintendo 3ds games. They are the below ones. Among them, only recommend Sky3ds+ highly, this is the easiest, most stable and 100% safe to use flashcard to your any 3ds device!

  • SKY3DS+: From sky3dsplus.net, the best 3ds game flash card to buy in the whole market, support 3ds games on all firmware version and region 3ds/3ds xl/new 3ds/new 3ds xl/2ds/new 2ds xl machines.
  • SKY3DS: From sky3dsplus.net, the old version of sky3ds+.
  • DSTWO+: From supercard.sc, cause it's only playing 3ds games on 3ds v4.2 to v9.2, don't recommend it.

How to use Acekard 2i/AK 2I to install CFW on 3DS/NEW 2DS XL console?

NTRBoot is just a way to install B9S for users who don't have CFW. You'll need to uninstall ntrboothax from the Acekard 2i or R4i gold 3ds, instructions for that are on 3ds.guide or here.

What you need

  • Your ntrboot compatible DS / DSi flashcart:
    • Either the Acekard 2i or R4i Gold 3DS RTS
  • Two 3DS family devices
    • The source 3DS: the 3DS family device that is already running some kind of custom firmware (such as boot9strap or arm9loaderhax)
    • The target 3DS: the device on stock firmware
  • The latest release of boot9strap (ntr boot9strap; not the devkit file)
  • The latest release of ntrboot_flasher

Steps

Part I – Prep Work

  1. Power off the source 3DS
  2. Insert the source 3DS’s SD card into your computer
  3. Create a folder named ntrboot on the root of your SD card
  4. Copy boot9strap_ntr.firm and boot9strap_ntr.firm.sha from the boot9strap ntr .zip to the /ntrboot/ folder on your SD card
  5. Copy ntrboot_flasher.firm from the ntrboot_flasher .zip to the /luma/payloads folder on the source 3DS’s SD card
  6. Reinsert the source 3DS’s SD card back into the source 3DS
  7. Insert your ntrboot compatible DS / DSi flashcart into the source 3DS

Part II – Flashing ntrboot

  1. Launch the Luma3DS chainloader by holding (Start) during boot on the source 3DS
  2. Select “ntrboot_flasher”
  3. Select “Dump Flash”
  4. Wait until the process is completed
  5. Press (B) to return to the main menu
  6. Select “Inject Ntrboot”
  7. Press (Y) to proceed
  8. Press (R) for retail unit ntrboot
  9. Wait until the process is completed
  10. Press (B) to return to the main menu
  11. Select “EXIT” to power off the source 3DS

Remember this is just the first step, after following this tutorial, you can start to install boot9strap on 3DS (XL)/NEW 3DS (XL)/2DS/NEW 2DS (XL) console via the NTRBOOT method with another user guide. For short, the whole progress is using NTRBoot Flasher on the hacked system to put NTRBootHax onto your compatible flashcart, then use that to hack your unhacked 3DS system. 

R4i gold pro or Ace3ds plus, which to buy for playing ds roms on New 2ds?

One card cheaper than 15$ can let you play 5500+ NDS roms on Nintendo new 2ds xl console. What are they? They are Ace3ds plus and R4i gold pro, one is $9.9 to work on 2ds xl to play free nds games, the other is $14.9 to hack new 2ds to play both free games and multi-media files. In this post, you can know more about the 2 cheap r4 flashcarts for new 2ds.

Ace3ds plus and New 2ds xl

Being sold at $9.9, Ace3ds plus is the R4 card with the lowest price to play Free Thousands of DS Games and emulate the FC、SFC、ATARI、GBC、GB、MD、NEOGEO、PC-Engine on both old 3DS/NEW 3DS and old 2DS/NEW 2DS machines. If you are the one without higher need for the R4 flashcard, the Ace3ds plus is a good choice, it is cheap to buy and supporting the basic functions of R4, such as playing most of DS Games, compatible with ds homebrews, supports some old game emulators, also AR cheats and Multi-media features are included.

But if you want to get a long-time to use and an updated R4 card, Ace3ds plus isn't the option. Firstly, it with old version wood kernel v1.62, released in 2013 and hadn't been updated for years. Secondly, it is the one-time to use flash card, means that Ace3ds plus can't be updated if one day Nintendo blocks it via release new 3ds firmware version. Based on them, for most of 2ds xl users, I don't recommend you this card. Though it is indeed cheap, other R4 cards for example R4I GOLD PRO which is priced at $15, not expensive to buy too and supports regular updated R4 kernel and better compatibility for future 3ds firmware.

R4i gold pro and New 2ds xl

R4isdhc.com releases the latest version R4 again for the upcoming year 2017. Now they have the 2017 R4i gold pro, 2017 R4i dual core and 2017 R4isdhc rts lite. From what we know now, it can be infered that 2017 R4i gold pro supports on 2ds xl V11.4.0-37U/E/J, plays DS games as always and runs homebrews&multi-media files. R4i gold pro 2017 is a good replacement if you buy to a cheaper R4 card than the R4i gold 3ds or R4i sdhc 3ds rts.

That's right, R4i gold pro is a cheap 3ds hacking card indeed. Buy it with 15 dollars's price, you can play Thousands of DS Games, All Region DS Roms, GBA/SNES/NES titles. They are all supported by a single R4i gold pro 2017 flashcard. It supports micro sd/sdhc so with the memory space to save downloaded game roms and other files. You guys not only can put DS/GBA/SNES/NES games into the sd card for R4i gold pro but ds homebrews, various emulators and multimeida files are compatible with it too. In a word, R4i gold pro is a magic flashcart for your 3ds system handhelds to support unlimited things! 

Ace3ds plus VS R4i gold pro, which is better to choose for New 2ds?

Like I said before, R4i gold pro is more recommended for you who has the new 2ds xl console. Because the Ace3ds plus can't work any longer once the firmware of new 2ds block the flash cart. So in order to buy a cheap and long using time R4 new 2ds xl card, you would better choose R4i gold pro 2017 or future r4i gold pro 2018.

Where to buy the R4i gold pro in USA and EU for new 2ds? You can choose our site 3ds-flashcard.com, we ship from both USA and Europe, support paypal and credit card payment, offer customers the free promo code and game download code.

Here, let me give you an answer and the correct way to downlaod and play Pokemon Ultra Sun&Moon 3ds games.

What are Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra games?

Nintendo revealed the latest entries to the Pokémon game family in the Nintendo Direct: Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, new versions of Pokémon Sun and Moon that are coming to the Nintendo 3DS on November 17th. Few details were revealed about the remakes, but Ultra Sun and Moon will feature a new storyline and presumably additional features — and pokémon — as well. The games will launch almost exactly a year after the originals. There was brief period of time where there was a listing for the titles on the Nintendo Switch but that was quickly removed and announced as a mistake. The game is heavily based on Pokémon Sun and Moon, last year’s pair of Pokémon role-playing games for Nintendo 3DS. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will further expand on the world and story of those entries, returning players to the Alola region. 

Pokémon fans will have a lot to enjoy this coming fall; not only is Pokkén Tournament DX arriving as the first Pokémon Switch title, but Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, follow-ups to Sun and Moon, are arriving on the 3DS family of systems on November 17. Finally, players will also be able to dive back into Pokémon Gold and Silver on virtual console on the 3DS family of systems, starting on September 22.

Is there any other better choice to make a purchase on the R4 3DS, N2 Elite or N2 Elite NFC USB Reader online? Here let me reply you.

Is Amazon and Wish safe to buy R4 3DS, N2 Elite in USA?

No, even now you can find resellers in Amazon or Wish, you would better not buy R4 3ds card or N2 Elite from them. Because being the big, famous, legal online shipping mall on the Internet, the rules of Amazon or Wish is very strict, the sales of r4 3ds flashcard or amiibo flash card is not allowed in the 2 sites. Maybe some resellers can sell them for 1 month, 2 month or longer time, the administrator of Amazon and Wish will soon find them, remove the items and close their subsites. So, if you buy r4 3ds card like r4i gold, r4i sdhc 3ds or n2 elite with n2 usb reader from them, after a time, you may never be able to contact the resellers if anything goes wrong of the product.

All in all, neither Amazon or Wish is the safe choice to buy flash cards like R4 3DS and N2 Elite.

Is Wish and Amazon the good and cheap site to buy R4 3DS, N2 Elite?

No too, compared with the small but official flash card reseller online, the Wish and Amazon do not have any advantage.

They are for different purposes and can be used for different Nintendo console users, so it's not difficult to decide which to buy. But if you have question on which is a good 3ds hacking tool, I will recommend the R4i gold 3ds card, because its full functions and it is the one hacking 3ds firmware while the N2 is the one hacking Amiibos.

  1. If you want to play free ds games, choose the R4i gold 3ds or other 3ds r4 card.
  2. If you want to play free Amiibos, choose the N2 Elite. For those who do not have android device, you should buy the n2 elite usb reader too.

How to get Homebrews on 3DS 11.3.0-36 via R4i gold 3ds with all exploits patched?

Do you know the worst impact caused by 3ds update 11.3? That is, for now, if you want to launch Homebrew Menu on 3DS/2DS/NEW 3DS consoles with 11.3.0-36u/e/j, it is impossible. Why? The 11.3 update blocks the root of 3DS Homebrew Launcher, a 3-year old gspwn exploit, which was the only publicly known way to inject new payloads to fix the homebrew exploits. But do not worry, besides homebrew 3DS with all the known exploits(Ninjhax and more), we can use R4i 3ds cards(R4i gold 3ds and more) to run Homebrew apps, tools and games on Nintendo 3DS V11.3 too.

Homebrew exploits for 3DS 11.3 firmware?

No homebrew exploits can support 3DS 11.3 firmware now. No matter the ones from Smealum, Yellows8, Plutoo, or the ones from Nedwill, they all stop working on this latest firmware version. There is saying that Soundhax is not patched, but it still needs the new payload to support 3DS V11.3, which is currenlty not possible to do because the gspwn exploit is blocked.

Homebrew hax pathced by 3DS V11.3
  • Gspwn: Patched :(
  • Ninjhax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • Freakyhax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • Soundhax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • BASICsploit: Still Patched
  • Basehax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • OOThax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • Smashhax: Needs Payload + Gspwn
  • Menuhax: Patched :(
  • Safehax: Patched :(
  • Fasthax: Patched :(

Is there a way to run Homebrews on 3DS 11.3 without using exploits?

Yes, and this method is super easy, all you need is the R4 3ds flashcard. Though you should pay for the r4 or r4i 3ds card, it is very cheap to buy. Price is from $9.9 to $18. Get one R4i sdhc 3ds, R4i gold 3ds, R4i gold pro 2017, R4i dual core 2017, R4i silver rts lite 2017, R4i gold eu 3ds or Ace3ds plus card, in addition to use homebrews on 3DS/NEW3DS/2DS machine, you can play All Nintendo DS Games for free.

The R4 3ds card is the ds game hacking card for both DSI and 3DS firmware. The flashcarts I mentioned above all are working greatly on DSI V1.4.5 and 3DS V11.3.0. These cards can play nearly every DS Rom on your old DS or new 3DS system handheld, besides, they are supporting Homebrews. After you setup R4/R4i 3ds card on 3DS 11.3.0-36u/e/j firmware console, you get fully access to Homebrews on Nintendo 3DS.

  1. R4 3ds or R4i 3ds card supports Moonshell homebrew, you can watch movie, listen to music, read e-books and view photos easily and conveniently on 3DS.
  2. R4 3ds or R4i 3ds card supports homebrew emulators, you can install GBA/SENS/NES/GBC/GB and other game emulators to 3DS to play these old-time games.

  4. R4 3ds or R4i 3ds card support homebrew apps, you can search and download homebrew apps or tools from online to 3DS to play.

P.S: Just attention the format of your download content, 3ds R4/R4i card is only coompatible with .nds.

How to install Homebrews on 3DS 11.3 with R4i 3ds card?

The R4 3ds cad has 3 major features, multi-functional, simple and cheap. Even you want to install Homebrews via one R4 3ds card on 3DS V11.3, you only need to do a few steps. Here I will show you the example, the R4i 3ds card I use is R4i gold 3ds wood, released from R4IDS.CN and bought from USA/EU reseller 3DS-FLASHCARD.COM.

Step A: Get Homebrew games

Fully format your micro sd card on your PC. Download some homebrew games from Google for the r4i gold 3ds. Decompress them and open the folders one by one. Copy the “.nds” file and paste them to the root of your sd card.

Step B: Get R4i gold 3ds firmware

Download the latest wood 1.64 kernel  as well. Unzip the “Wood_R4iGold_V1.64.rar”. Open the “Wood_R4iGold_V1.64″ folder,  drag and put all the contents to the root of your microsd card too.

Step C: So your micro sd should have both R4 wood kernel files and homebrew games.

Step D: Setup R4i gold 3ds on 3DS V11.3

Put the r4i gold 3ds card with sd card into your nintendo console. Power on and click the “konami” icon.

Step E: Run the homebrew games on 3DS

Then you can see the MicroSD card menu. Highlight the ” homebrew game ”, press “A” to enjoy the homebrew games.

R4i gold 3ds supports 3DS Firmware 11.2.0-35 or Emunand 11.2 to play ds games?

The R4i gold 3ds supports ds games on 3ds firmware 11.2.0 or emunand 11.2? I know some flashcards can only work on 3DS Emunand to play free games, because they can't work on the latest 3DS Firmware version. So how about the R4 card here?

If you have question like the R4i gold 3ds customer in 3ds-flashcard.com, let me give your answer by this post.

R4i gold 3ds supports on 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS console with 11.2.0-35 firmware?

Yes, R4i gold 3ds wood card like this one produced by r4ids.cn is supporting DS games directly on 11.2.0-35 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS consoles.Just download wood v1.64 and ds roms, insert R4i gold 3ds wood card to 2DS/3DS/NEW 3DS machine, you can play ds games directly on the latest 3ds firmare version. Besides the 3ds r4i gold card, there are 3 R4 card with gold title supports on 11.2.0-35 firmware too. They are as following.

  • R4I GOLD PRO 2016: It is from r4isdhc.com, supports 3ds v11.2 with 3.8b kernel.
  • R4I GOLD PRO 2015: Old R4i gold pro card from from r4isdhc.com, supports 3ds v11.2 with 3.8b kernel.
  • R4I GOLD EU 3DS: Europe R4i gold card from r4i-gold.eu, upports 3ds v11.2 with 1.72b kernel.

Attention the R4i gold card which can not work on 3DS 11.2.0-35.

R4I GOLD 3DS DELUXE EDITION: It is from r4ids.cn too, but it is only supports 3ds v4.1 to v4.5 to play 3ds games. Do not and never work on 3DS 11.2.0-35u/e/j.

R4i gold 3ds supports Emunand 11.2 on 3DS/N3DS/2DS console?

No, the 3ds R4i gold wood card can support 3DS Sysnand 11.2.0-35 directly, so the card has no need for Emunand function. Emunand is useful when you can not use any flashcart or 3ds hack on the latest 3ds firmware, then you can setup the Emunand to enjoy new features of 3ds latest firmware but keep your Real 3DS system in a lower version. For example, Gateway 3ds card can not work on 3ds v11.2, but it is supporting Emunand 11.2.0-35, so its users can update to GW Emunand 11.2 with 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS firmware still stay on 9.2 or below version. But this function is not essential for R4 card. They are hacking every 3ds firmware directly, let the users play free DS Games on all 3DS system, including the latest 11.2.0-35.

3DS R4i gold is better to buy than 3DS R4I-SDHC for 3DS V11.2?

No, I want to clarify here, online many of you think R4i gold 3ds rts card is better or the best R4 card in the market. But you are wrong. Here I will show you the reason. The R4i gold 3ds card is just famous with the wood kernel from old R4 manufacturer, but it as like the other R4 3ds card in the market, all are the clone of DS R4 card.

Which R4i 3ds gold card supports Thousands of DS Roms on 11.1?

The only R4i gold card supports around 3000 DS Games within One cartridge is R4i gold 3ds wood or R4i gold 3ds rts from R4ids.cn. Other 3ds R4i gold with ts could only play Hundreds of DS Roms with the micro memory sd/sdhc card. This is the fact only few R4 flash card user knows. If you want to put Thousands of DS Games into one R4 card, just go to buy the R4i gold 3ds wood. If you do not care about the game limit, I would rather recommend R4i sdhc rts 3ds or R4i gold pro 2016 to you. Because they are from the more active team, release new R4 card kernel or firmware per year, so you can get better card performance every year. But for the R4i gold 3ds rts, the flashcard company only released v1.64 in 2013 then no update till for now, even the card can work on 3DS US/EU 11.1.0-34 version, it stop undating since 2013. As for me, I'd like to give more trust to an Active company not the seemingly Dead one.

Is R4i gold 3ds wood the best R4 card to buy for US/EU 3DS V11.1?

No, it is neither the best R4i gold nor the best R4i card for 3DS 11.1.0-34U/E/J. Like I said above, R4i gold 3ds wood with very old wood kernel and the official team do not release any thing new since 2013. It is not good for an R4 card band. For most of you, R4i sdhc rts 3ds or R4i gold pro are better R4i flashcart to buy.

R4I GOLD PRO 2016: R4i gold pro 2016 is the latest version R4i gold card in 2016, the flash card company like to release r4isdhc cards in every year, so we can see the R4i gold pro 2014, R4i gold pro 2015, R4i gold pro 2016, even the 2017 R4i gold pro in the upcoming year. For R4i gold, I recommend this one highly because of 3 reasons.

  1. R4i gold pro 2016 is at least producted in the end of 2015 and 2016, they are not the R4 flashcards which are in stock for years, because nobody buy it.
  2. R4i gold pro 2016 with R4 firmware released in 2016, the flash card is usually be updated per year, it is good for users.
  3. R4i gold pro 2016 is much cheaper than R4i gold 3ds but with all its functions, except the ability to support Thousands of games.

R4I SDHC 3DS RTS: R4i sdhc rts 3ds is from the old but active R4 team, it is the most-welcoming R4i cart in the market for a long long time. It updates the wood R4 firmware and changes it to 3D R4i kernel which it uses now. As the best R4 card all the time, it has all the following pros.

  1. You can play more games by using the R4i SDHC 3DS RTS card.(R4i gold 3ds supports more game roms, but R4i sdhc 3ds play more game titles)
  2. You can use it for a longer time than other r4 3ds cards.It supports unlimited upgrade.
  3. You can get more support and help, because of the worldwide users of R4i SDHC 3DS RTS card.
  4. You can enjoy the unique feature wifi download engine, search and download DS Games more easily.
  5. You can get a more enjoyable using experience, the UI of R4I SDHC RTS 3DS is easy to handle.

Which version R4i gold pro supports 3DS games on 11.0.0-33u/e/j?

2015, 2016 or the future 2017 R4i gold pro supports 3DS Games on 11.0.0-33U/E/J? If you have this question, let me answer you here.

2015, 2016 or 2017 R4i gold pro works on 3DS 11.0.0-33U/E/J?

2017 R4 gold pro: It is not released yet, generally, r4i-sdhc.com will produce new R4isdhc versions by the end of 2016, we 3ds-flashcard.com will display the 2017 version in the first time and send you the card after tested by us.

2016 R4i gold pro: This is the current R4i gold pro version, produced by the end of 2015, compared with R4i gold pro 2015, not with much differences, a new design look and 2016 mark.

2015 R4i gold pro: This card is still sold in the market too, have almost 2 years’ experience, an old version R4 gold pro.

2016 and 2015 R4i gold pro work on 3ds 11.0 with Video proof here, and this should not be a problem for 2017 R4i gold pro too. So if you just wonder do these R4i gold pro 3ds cards work on the latest 3DS firmware, the answer is Yes.

2015, 2016 or 2017 R4i gold pro supports 3DS Games?

No, 2015, 2016 and upcoming 2017 R4i gold pro cards only are used to play DS not 3DS Games on 3DS or DS consoles. You should always keep this in mind. R4, R4i, R4i sdhc, R4i sdhc 3ds cards, even they have been ungraded year by year, they still supports DS games not 3DS.

Which R4 card to buy for playing 3ds games on 3DS 11.0.0-33U/E/J?

Not R4 3ds card, but 3ds card Sky3ds and its second version Sky3ds plus supports 3DS Games on FW 11.0.0-33U/E/J. They can play nintendo 3ds games directly on 3ds v11.0, here are the videos too watch too. If you want to play 3ds games on 3DS FW 11.0,  just buy the Sky3ds+ card, Sky3ds is the old version, not that better as Sky3ds plus for hacking 3ds to play 3ds games.
