R4i Gold 3DS RTS competible with NTRBoot, how about other flashcart?

Renectly, R4i Gold 3DS RTS is very hotly on the market, because it support NTRBoot. It means you can use R4i Gold 3DS RTS and a magnet to install boot9strap to hack your New 3DS/3DS/2DS XL.

Except R4i Gold 3DS RTS, there also have some other flashcart support NTRBoot, see below.

Acekard 2i HW-44
Acekard 2i HW-81
R4i Gold 3DS (RTS, revisions A5/A6/A7) (r4ids.cn)
R4i Ultra (r4ultra.com)
R4i Gold 3DS Starter (r4ids.cn)
R4 3D Revolution (r4idsn.com)
Infinity 3 R4i (r4infinity.com)
DSTT (some flash chips only!)

But some of these have stopped production (Acekard 2i), and some are expensive (R4i Gold 3DS Starter), the best choice is R4i Gold 3DS RTS.

R4i Gold 3DS RTS is only $18.5 USD at digimartz.com. This is an reliable official reseller, you can rest assured to buy.

Here i’d like to inform you in advance that the price maybe rise a lillte after this month, if you have interested, just buy now!

Help you figure out the “no card insert” issue of Acekard 2i

If your are an owner of a AK2i and you may have suffered  from the “no card insert”  issue like the picutrue shows below.


However, please don’t worry, this blog will help you out of this problem, just follow the belowing step by step .

Some things required:
Original AK2I,
Any flashcard(which can work on DSL or DSI console,under ver.v1.43),SD card,Card reader,PC.

Here i will take the DSTWO card as a example. I will use a DSL to fix the problem.
1. Format your SD card.
2. Download the DSTWO kernel, and unzip it, copy all the files on the root of the SD card.
3. Download the AK2i latest update patch, unzip it, you will get two different files, one is for DSL and the other is for DSi. Copy the “ak2ifw_update_3ds43_dsi144_onDSL.nds” on the root of the SD card. (If you are using a DSi, you should copy the DSi.nsd file)
4. Insert the SD card into DSTWO card, and power on DSTWO with DSL console. Find the “ak2ifw_update_3ds43_dsi144_onDSL.nds”file and run it. You can get the screen below:

5. Do not do any steps, just eject the SD card and dstwo, then insert the ak2i (without SD card) into the DSL console. Press “B” to continue, you will get the pic below:

6. Press “Start” button, the card will update itself, DO NOT power during this process, or your card will be damaged. When the update completed, you will show:

7. Just power your console, and then  your Acekard2i can work again now!
