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.
