So in this post, we will introduce you the R4 3ds cards and 3ds flashcards which support directly on 3DS with no CFW needed.

The following R4 or R4i cards all can be used on any 3ds firmware console without installing a CFW firstly, they are supporting on 3DS Sysnand directly with their flashcard kernel.

The Firmware (or Kernel as it is more commonly called) is the heart and soul of the R4 3DS.  Without the firmware files, your r4 will not be recognized when you insert it into your DS, DSi or Nintendo 3DS system.  You can think of it as the bootloader, or menu system for your ds card.

Play 3DS games without CFW but flashcards

buy r4 3ds,sky3ds, n2 elite with voucher for 3DS or Switch

Some old 3ds flashcards are no need to mention, for example, the MT-card, R4i gold 3ds deluxe. All the 2018 3ds flash carts are here to check.

  • Stargate 3ds ($93): Play both NDS and 3DS games, currently can’t support the newest 3ds titles but it will be udpated soon.
  • Sky3ds+(plus) ($88): Play nearly 3ds retail card games, for the time being, it’s the best 3ds game flash card.
  • Sky3ds ($87): An old sky3ds+ version, not recommend in 2018.
  • Gateway 3ds ($65): The first 3ds game flashcard, but in 2018, it stop updating for a long lone time. Support 3ds games on v4.1 to v9.1 but with the 3ds cheats code feature.
  • Dstwo+ ($58): Card is discontinued.
  • EZflash redux ($39.9): The first 3ds flashcart from EZflash team, but don’t recommend too, it as a firmware restriction too.

So from the above description, I think you can understand us, for playing 3ds games without installing CFW, choose Sky3ds+, for playing nds/3ds games, buy the Stargate 3ds.

Which to choose, R4 3DS, 3DS card or 3DS CFW?

Install the CFW to your console, you can have more control and do a lot of things on it. But meanwhile, this procedure will be more complicated and don’t suit for a little child or a “lazy” gamer. So if you only want to save money for playing free 3DS/DS games, we will still suggest you to buy an R4 card or 3ds card for hacking the 3DS.

3DS CFW is more powerful but flashcard is simple.
