The first and most famous R4 Wood card is R4I GOLD 3DS RTS from, which used the old wood kernel from original team. This R4I GOLD card plus Real-time save feature, so then called R4I GOLD 3DS RTS as well. Many old r4 card may heard of the card often than others. But in fact, the R4i gold 3ds rts card isn’t the BEST R4 3DS card for playing 5500+ds games on 3DS System. The no.1 r4 card for running ds games on 9.8 3ds firmware is R4I SDHC RTS 3DS.

The two cards with nealy the same function but a little different price, if you want to have a more cheaper one, r4i gold pro 2015 is better, if you want to a more stable card, r4i gold 3ds wood is the right.

Some days ago, a CFW was released to support unsigned .cia installing/loading, yes, that is the PASTA CFW. It is developed by capito27 and can work on both Old and New 3DS with tool Ninjhax. Compared to other Custom Firmwares for 3DS, the anti-piracy NTR CFW (both old and new 3DS), rxTools (old 3ds) and Govanify leaked CFW (old 3ds, 4.x firmwares), Pasta CFW is the first time you can install and boot unsigned .cia files with or without a flashcart for New 3DS.

Any R4i gold card support cia games for 3DS?

Either flashcart SKY3DS, Gateway, or game cartridge Cubic Ninja is more expensive than R4i gold cards($15-$17) like r4i gold 3ds, r4i gold eu and r4i gold pro 2015.
