Which card work on 3DS v5.1.0-11?


Don’t know why the Nintendo 3DS update system so often recently, but seems the update is no effect for the flashcard. Almost all the flashcart pass the update and work on 3DS newest v5.1.0-11 with no problem. But still need be a attention for some details.

dstwo and r4i gold 3ds is no problem, they work on 3ds v5.1.0-11 directly even no need any updating. you can use it out of the box. but for r4i sdhc 3ds, you need use their new firmware v1.67b to update the card first, update it to work on v5.0.0-11, then it can work on v5.1.0-11 too. And for ace3ds plus, just the new card which has 001/001A/002 can work on 3DS v5.1.0-11 without any updating. And the other cards, such as r4i dual core, r4i sdhc rts, just the card which has “2013” mark on the lable can work on newest v5.0.0-11 and v5.1.0-11, the card which has “new” mark on the lable cannot work..

So when you want to choose  a card work on your 3DS newest version,  i recommend dstwo or r4i gold 3ds. Both of them are strong team and update speed is so quick. the card quality is very good too.
