Which R4 card can work on Nintendo 2DS?


Since Nintendo 2DS has been released, many users concern dose the r4 card which work on 3DS also support work on 2DS? The answer is yes. But there are several points need be attention.

First, all r4 card just support play ds games on 3DS or 2DS, they cannot play 3ds games. If you want to play 3DS games, choose gateway 3ds. GW3DS is the world’s first 3ds flashcart which support play 3ds games on 3DS. But this product is not perfectly, it just support v4.1-v4.5 system. So if your 3DS system above v4.5, gateway 3ds cannot work on it. So does gateway 3ds support 2DS? The answer is no. All 2DS Factory Version above v4.5, their factory version is v6.0.0-x. So gateway 3ds cannot play on it. The other r4i card can play ds games on 2DS.

Now, we know that there are many r4i card in the market, some can work on 2DS, some cannot, becuase 2DS system is above v6.0, so some clone r4 card cannot support this system. Which flashcart can work on 2DS? Here has some i recommend, they tested by very many users, they are best, popular and hot flashcarts.

First is dstwo. dstwo is not r4 card, but dstwo is the stronggest flashcart, that is why it is more expensive than r4 card, but it worth that price. you will never worry about system update, dstwo always break it quickly. So if money is not your problem, just buy dstwo.

Then the best r4 card is r4i gold 3ds rts. It is a high quality card, r4i gold 3ds rts team is strong, they break system update quick too. So if you want to by a r4 card, r4i gold 3ds is no doubt your first choice.

How to choose the flashcart? FAQ!

Q:  How to choose a good flashcart?
A: There are so many flashcart in the market right now, we always confused and don’t know which card should buy. Actually, every card has its own feature. For example, M3i zero, main to use for Media Player. DSTwo, interface is beautiful and support real time save. But both of them is a little expensive. The acekard 2i, cheap but update speed is slow. You can choose a card according to your own demands, no need pursue the comprehensive function. If you just use the card to play games, i think the ace3ds plus is a good card, update quick and easy for use.

Q:  I have a flashcart and a console, so can i play game right now?
A:  No, you need a micro sd card, to put the game and kernel in it. So you need a card reader also. the sd card is cheap, and card reader is always included in the flashcart package when you buy it.

Q:  What is the kernel? How to get it?
A:  The kernel is a firmware of flashcart, you need use it to start your card. Every card has its own kernel, you can download it on the card official site. The package has a offficial site address, you can check it. Download the kernel, unzip it, put the files into the root of your sd card, then put the games (rom file) in the sd card also, no you can enjoy games.

Q:  I have a r4i 3ds card, but some games i cannot play, why?
A:  Every flashcart has its own game update data, some is quick and some is slow. You can check the game list on every card’s official site. Or you can patch the rom by yourself, many forum has the patch method, just google it.

Q:  What is the Homemade kernel?
A: Beside official, some players released an unofficial kernel, this is named homemade kernel, it update quicker than offcial but the stability is weaker.

Q:  Is the ds flashcart can use on DSi? or 3DS?
A: The R4 card just can work on DS and can not work on DSi, beside, it just support 2 GB sd card. The other cards is no problem, support both dsi and ds such as r4i 3ds, r4i gold 3ds, dstwo, ak2i etc..And they also can work on 3DS , support 16G card, but what i mean is they just can play ds games on 3DS.

Q:  Does my r4 card can play 3DS games? Is there any card can play 3DS games?
A:  No, there is no card can play 3DS games right now, they just can play ds games on 3DS. What we know most is the Crown 3DS,maybe it can work 3ds games but it is still in progressing. we don’t know when it will be released.

Classic r4 card – R4i SDHC 3DS

So many users choose r4i sdhc 3ds card, it always called r4i 3ds. The team released 2 kinds of this card, one is r4i sdhc not support 3ds, we call it r4i 1.44, becase it can work on dsi v1.44 perfectly. Another is r4i 3ds, which can work on 3ds v4.3.0-10 with no problem. Both of them is cheap, and this card released in a long time, it become a classic r4 card in the world right now.

The official even released a backup dongle: r4i save. As a player, we are happy to find a good card with cheap price, specially the card is r4 series. What i am interested in is the update method, every time when Nintendo release a new firmware, this card always make the update patch and kernel in one, then you can use the ds to update the card. The update speed is not very quick, but not late also. Seems this is the most stable card, keep its own pace, in no hurry.

Here is its function, i think for a newbie, can try it:

-Support the Latest N3DS perfectly.
-Realtime skin/themes change function(support random skin/themes selection mode).
-Supports Moonshell and other homeberw.Open I/O interface.
