    well i guess your right in a way and also wrong in a way your right beacuse people do directly hink of ak2 i and dont think bout other carts but your wrong by comparing the cekard to the r4 its better in a lot of ways so there should be nothing wrong with people wanting an acekard because its cheap has a nice menu and almost perferct compatibilty but people if you got the money go for the m3i zero i jsut got mine and i like it better make sure to get sakura [​IMG]

    I don't think it's there in popularity with the way the R4 was just yet. The acekard does have alot of features, it also has alternative opensource firmware like AKAIO. The R4 never had that as far as I know. So even if it did ~die~ it could live on through open source firmware.

    no one took a gun and pointed at you and say you can't say these things [​IMG]
    is your choice to fancy m3 or whatever [​IMG]

    by the way, what is QUALITY?
    firmware = quality?
    features = quality?
    support = quality?
    a high quality flash cart for me would be rom compatibility
    features and etc is just a complement

    my thoughts would be who cares about cyclo, ak2, m3 or even r4
    at the end of the day, whats the purpose of a flash cart?
    is to play game.. everything else is just complementary
    having them i won't live longer
    without them it doesn't affect my gaming experience

    however, i guess soon m3i0 would be another new r4 [​IMG]
    since its 0 to infinity and aka futureproof effect is kicking in
    all the m3 owners, supporters, members, die hard fans or fan boys/girls will say grab m3i0
    i forsee every now and then, whenever someone ask for a futureproof flash cart i think the answer would be m3i0 or m3i0 would be mentioned as the safest bet

    supporting arguements would be
    futureproof
    better than scds1i
    provides features that other carts don't have
    sakura

    welcome new m3i0 as the new r4 to be [​IMG]

    first generation r4 is r4
    second generation r4 is ak2i
    third and upcoming generation r4 is m3i0

    you can don't like what i said but i am just stating the fact that i see [​IMG]

    *FLAME SHIELD ON especially towards m3 fanboys*

    EDIT: guess what under certain circumstances i would be asking people to get m3i0 [​IMG]

    examples

    Acekard2i is supported by some of the most technically advanced members here- Normmatt, Smiths, and their team. I think that alone is enough to say it's nothing like R4.

    Personally, I think that the cards that are "future-proof" (what is it now, M3i0 and SCDS1i?) have a higher chance of lasting longer than cards that don't have this technology built into them. I mean, the other brands can make a new card for new blocks, but who wants to keep spending money when they only need to do it once?

    the M3i0 isnt future proof, as far as i know you cant update the actel chip too support any new cart commands which means its useless because it will never support dsi mode. Though no other flashcart allows that either so....

    Well of course. However, it's more than likely that when DSi mode is fully exploited, all newly emerging flash cards (including remakes of the AK2i, M3i0, and others) will have the "future-proof" technology implemented. Or at least, that's my guess. They'd be fools not to, in case of the event that Nintendo releases a bricker in a firmware update.

    Thanks for quintuple posting. Next time please stop your computer from lagging. Thank you.
    Well Skyline if that happens I probably would pick up a revised AK2i. [​IMG]
    Normmatt does this mean the M3 team lied to us about having everything updateable. (I might have misunderstood them anyways) [​IMG]

    AKAIO is not open source. The RPG firmware is.

    Well, if development for it ever stopped completely, they might just release the source code so someone else could work on it. Guess it'd result in a huge influx of clones that use it, but it's not like the R4 was any better.
