Why is nobody mentioning the GATEWAY cart?
Because it wasn't out 2 years ago... When this thread was made...

I am looking for a gateway..any good spots to pick one up? Has anyone ordered from http://www.modchipcentral.com/store/?
Yes, I have bought it from them. They gave me some bonus stuff as well. Like a 3DS USB Charge Cable. It ships from Canada....so you will get it faster and it the cheapest price.

There is another site that is cheaper, they ask for your passport...not worth it for 20 bucks cheaper.

Why do you even need an R4 card? The latest CFWs for 3DS let you load anything off the SD Card. Check out /r/3dshacks

you don't need one for that, all you need is an SD card. More info at /r/3dshacks and https://3ds.hacks.guide/
dont think thats true depending on his current firmware. I had to use an r4 for mine unless I was buying something off the eshop. you could do buy a dsiware game and mine the sha key. preferred the r4 anyway there are a few nice games on the ds library you'd like to have.

you could try kijiji for an r4, seen some locally for 15, which is overpriced for a cheap clone(doesnt really matter) but convenient.

if you live in the gta, you can come to me and do the hack onspot(I still have the hack core loaded). I just have to find the damn thing.

ebay flushed all of these r4s out, they were like 6 bucks.
think first, buy later.

Oh ok word I didn't think anything changed in the newer official firmwares. I hacked mine at the start of 2017 and recall just needing my SD card though I do sort of remember having to buy an Eshop title to inject FBI over it or something like that

Be advised that things have changed since July and for the moment it is currently possible to hack a 3DS on 11.9 without having to spend any money. (A 3DS on older firmware can be updated to 11.9 – there's no particular benefit to staying on a lower firmware.)

An R4i Gold 3DS Plus is thus slightly unnecessary – except that it's a tiny bit faster and more straightforward, it can be used to recover a mostly-bricked 3DS, and in DS mode it will work on an unmodded unit.
