True or False? DSTwo work Gateway 3DS firmware and support play 3DS game on 3DS v6.1!


Just found an amazing video, show the dstwo can work gateway 3ds firmware and play 3ds game! As i don’t have v4.5 console (it need flash on v4.5 first), cannot verify it, but the video seems true, if it is real, why not buy dstwo to play 3DS game? It is cheaper and support v6.2.0-x!

Here is the video:

According to the video, we know the dstwo use gateway 3ds blue card firmware first, work it on 3DS v4.5 and flash it. Then use the same dstwo, put dstwo firmware and a 3ds game in sd card, and the dstwo work on 3DS v6.1 console, play 3ds game successful!

We know dstwo is the stronggest flashcart in the market, but it still surprise me that it can work 3ds game. The dstwo has a very strong cpu, that make this card support many high technical performance such as play gba game without slot 1.

Well, anyway, this is a good news for players as dstwo is much cheaper than gateway 3ds, players has more choice and we believe more 3ds flashcart will come out soon!

GBATEMP update the dstwo GBA emulator


News from GBATemp, the gbatemp update their own dstwo GBA emulator v1.40 yesterday. Here is the details:

Based on beta 14, not beta 15.

  • Add the option to play games on the Lower Screen instead of the Upper Screen (GitHub issue #12).
  • Add the option to start games from the GBA BIOS (logo) (GitHub issue #9).
  • Make the FPS counter disappear if it has insufficient data: when switching games and when entering the menu.
  • The game-specific button mapping interface now shows the global mappings with ‘(global)’ next to their DS button. This better conveys the entire set of mappings that apply to a game (GitHub issue #19).
  • The most recently played ROM now goes to the top instead of the bottom (GitHub issue #21).
  • The text colors are now loaded in TEMPGBA/SYSTEM/GUI/uicolors.txt for theming (GitHub issue #7).

We know that dstwo is the only flashcard which can play GBA games on 3ds and dsi, it is not need slot 2 card, so the emulator is very important, though the GBA emulator is not perfect at the moment, but the dstwo GBA emulator is the best. That is why i always recommend dstwo.

Which card work on Nintendo 3DS v5.0.0-11?

Nintendo 3DS update their system again, the newest system is v5.0.0-10. Here is the details:

Update Your Nintendo 3DS System Today.

The latest system update brings new features to streamline and enhance your experience. This update is FREE.

Transfer your save data from the packaged version of a game when you purchase the downloadable version of that game. Now, you can start right where you left off when you go digital with your favorite titles.

As we know, every time when 3ds or dsi update their system, it will ban a lot of flashcarts. I just tested some of them, good news is there are 3 cards right now is no problem: r4i gold 3ds (, dstwo, ace3ds plus. These 3 cards work on 3DS newest system v5.0.0-11 perfectly, no need any patch and no need any updating.

Believe that other cards will release their patch soon, but at least, we know not all the flashcart get banned.

How to transfer the save data files between the flashcart?

One thing need to know is, the flashcart save date cannot be used directly between different flashcart. If you have a r4i gold 3ds flashcart, and played some games, there are same backup files and save data files in your sd card. And then if you get a dstwo in you hand again, can you use the backup files and save datas in the dstwo directly? No, you need transfer the files first.

How to transfer the files? It need a software tool, named: DSSaveTools, here is how to use it:

1. Download the DSSaveTools. Unzip it.


2. Start the .exe file, you will see the follow picture:


3. Click the “Input” and “Output” for file saves.

4. Select the “Type” to choose the files which you want to transfer, there are all the types you need.

Attenditon: If you want to transfer the files to work on r4i gold 3ds, please select “wood”, and if you want to transfer it to work on dstwo, please select the “DSONE”.

5. Click the “change”, it will transfer the save date.


What a supercard dstwo can do?


Many users think use almost 40 usd to buy a dstwo is too expensive. compare with other 10 usd also or 20 usd also card, dstwo is so expensive in flashcart market, so is it worth to buy? why it is so expensive?

Well, i think dstwo is the most worth to buy and if you know how strong this card it is, you will think the price is totally not expensive. Wnen you get a dstwo in your hand, you will find the card quality is so good. And no doulbt its function is stronggest.

RTS: the dstwo rts function is most stable, this feature is so convenience, now as i know, r4i gold 3ds, r4itt, r4i sdhc 3ds rts and r4i sdhc rts has the rts function too, but the most stable one is dstwo.

GBA emulator: We know we can  play play gba games on ds console, all the flashcart said they support GBA emulator, but all the flashcart need a slot 2 card such as ezflash 3 in 1 to work together, except dstwo. That means, just dstwo can play gba games on 3ds and dsi, other cards just can play gba games on ds as dsi and 3ds don’t have slot 2.

usercheat: dstwo firmware don’t add cheat file, because they think it is unfair to play games by cheating. but that not mean you cannot use cheating on dstwo, just need you download a cheat.dat file on line and put it in the firmware.

Quickest update: everytime, when nintendo update their firmware (dsi or 3ds), it will banned a lot of flashcart. dstwo always be quick to release their break patch to help users update their cards. no need change another card, no need waiting for the patch for so long time, just 1 or 2 days, you can use the update patch to upgrade your dstwo.

There still have many other great features for dstwo, you will not regret to choose this card.

Best flashcart for DSi XL?


Well, if  money not your problem, dstwo is your best choice. actually, no matter what console you play, ds, dsi, 3ds, dstwo is always worth to get. But if you are a newbie and don’t need too many function, i think somethimes other cards is better than dstwo.


The first card i recommend is r4i gold 3ds. you know this card is cheap, and its function is great. r4i gold 3ds is the strongest card in r4 series. If you get a r4i gold 3ds in your hand, you will find this card’s quality is very good, the r4i gold 3ds team is strong, update very quick. so for DSi XL, my first recommend is r4i gold 3ds, you will not regret to get it.


If your dsi has not update and no plan to update it, then the second recommend is acekard 2i. I know this card maybe will not update anymore, and i know it cannot work on dsi newest v1.45 version. But as an classic card, its akaio kernel is so beautiful and its skin is so fantasic! There still has many ak2i fans, so if you dont update your dsi, then get a ak2i, it is still a good card.

Which card is best for 3DSXL?

So if you buy a new Nintendo 3DSXL, do you always considering which card should i buy for my 3DSXL? Well, in my opinion, you’d better choose a strong card for your strong console :)

So first choice is supercard dstwo.  The price is a little expensive but it worth the value. Use one dstwo card, you can play all the games including ds roms, many emulators and GBA games. no need slot 1 card when play GBA games, actually 3DSXL don’t have slot 1 too. So if you want to play GBA games, you have to use dstwo, other cards can not support play GBA games on 3DSXL.

Another reason for choosing dstwo is because the support team is very strong, they update quick and almost no bad card. even if your dstwo is damaged by updating , you can fix it.

So DSTwo is no doublt the stonggest card in the market and is your best choice for your new 3DSXL.

Good place to buy r4i 3ds card?

We want to buy cards from a safe, trust worth, quick shipping store. And we need them cheap too. But for flashcard, you need know something. All the flashcard including dstwo, r4i 3ds, acekard or other cards are made in China, that is why you will find so many store are from China, the price will be cheaper, but opposite the delivery time will be long. specially in peak season such as before christmas, the delivery time will be long long long. even 30-45 days or 60 days..just one thing is, no matter how long it take, the parcel will not lose and you will receive it finally.

So, if you want the delivery quicker, how to do? 1, choose express shipment. that mean you need pay an extra shipping charges. 2, choose a local store, the delivery time will be quicker but the product price will be higher. well, so i think no matter where the store it is, the price is almost the same. expensive price means quick shipping and cheap price mean slow..

The most important thing is the store you choose, if we never buy something in a store, how to judge it is safe and good? 1. the news updating. quick updating means the store is always work and the staff will reply quick, you can send a message before make order, and see if the reply is quick or slow. 2. the “about us” part or other part, that can help you know this store and you will see if they are professinal. 3. the product describtion. 4. the reivew.

For example, if i want to buy a r4i sdhc 3ds. as i know, the r4i sdhc 3ds official released new cards for v4.5 and v1.45. and change the pack. so when i enter a store, see if the news is update, in the product page, is the package picture change and if the card is newest card etc..If the store long time not update any news, you’d better consider again..

Finally, if someone had good experience, that will be the best.
