    2.1 will direct boot.

    2i will boot to the menu.

    I'd choose 2.1 for this reason.

    If you're not using it on a DSi there's no difference.

    Go with the 2i though. It's only a few bucks more and it'll save you from getting another cart if they decide to move to a DSi eventually.

    EDIT:
    Wut.
    If you're talking about autobooting the last played ROM, that works on a 2i just fine.
    If you're talking about skipping the health and menu screens to go directly to the cart, that's done by modding the DS/Lite and has nothing to do with the cart used.

    If they are very young kids, the extra step clicking the menu might confuse them.

    Or it might not.


    EDIT:


    Wut?


    AK2i on my DSL boots to the Nintendo menu first (Danny Phantom or Alex Rider Stormbreaker), whereas AK2.1 boots straight to AKAIO.

    That's the first I've heard of this, what's the auto-boot method you used, and does it work with retail carts?

    On my Japanese DS Lite, all non-DSi flashcards boot straight to the flashcard menu... R4, AK 2.1, M3 Real... etc...

    But retail games not.




    The DSi flash cards, however, boot to the Nintendo menu (and show Danny or whatever the icon is).

    How early did you receive your Japanese DS Lite? Around the release date or after?

    EDIT: This is also the first I've heard of this.
