    So, uh, yeah...to be honest, I've been thinking of getting a Cyclo for quite a while now, probably because I've heard that it has great support and it has Wii-DS connectivity. Now that TTDS is pretty much DEAD(even YSMenu doesn't update, dammit), I've been thinking of getting a new flashcart. As much as I'd love to get a Cyclo, it seems kinda expensive and I have to go to the capital to buy it. On the other hand, the other two seems cheaper and it's available at our local malls. So, which one is it guys?

    Acekard with AKAIO has Wii-DS connection
    EDGE is practically a stripped down Cyclo,getting iEDGE gets you RTS(i think?)
    Cyclo is expensive but worth it,I guess

    Ok, based on what I've just read...CYCLO IS TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE.


    Pareh, baka Acekard nalang ako or Edge, mas mura e...what's your personal recommendation?

    My DSTT came with the DSL I bought so yeah...


    Hindi na ba updated yung EDGE? Damn, it seems that my options are getting riskier by the minute. Ayoko na kasi ng masyadong mahal, papaayos ko pa yung D-pad ko e...I just really want to play SMT: SJ! Mas mura pa rin kaysa bumili ng orig.

    Well, based on my 'research', their updates are kind of slow...but I don't think the Cyclo team is gonna die soon, considering the fact that they have a freaking expensive cart and an awesome reputation...Ugh, hirap pumili, and ayoko din dumayo sa Greenhills para bumili ng 3.5k na flashcart, lalo ngayong bakasyon, wala akong baon, haha.

    When I had a DSLite, I bought a TTDS and I thought it was ok, after you install YSMenu. But if that's not getting updated I would go with EZFlash or Acekard2i, I just got my A2i and it is really great with AKAIO. I like the Acekard because I am seeing guides to use some alternative menus like YSMenu, one that looks like coverflow, or even moonshell 2. I know you can do that with other cards, but out of the 3 cards I've used the A2i has the most 3rd party 'support'.

    AK2i is best. EDGE=cheaper alternative to CycloDS, and prepare to pay more than $46.50 if you choose the CycloDS.

    BTW, even though you "hate acekard" (according to your sig), you just stated that the M3i doesn't have a feature that the Acekard has. And AKAIO is made by people here at GBAtemp.
    You don't deserve to be here.

    I have personal Hate for EDGE

    Just because it is just a strpped 1:1 clone of CycloDS evolution. And I still Love my CycloDS

    Both CycloDS evolution and Acekard (apparently?) have wii connection (I just was not aware, and frankly do not care as I do not own a Wii) And both have fast updates for game compatibility.

    CycloDS is Feature rich, and let's be honest; It's "OMG EXPENSIVE" price still is that of ONE GENUINE game brand new.

    Acekard has basic stuff; cheats and Soft reset. Some people (me) do not need more, and the game compatibility with AKAIO is off the hook (yo)

    So;
    My standards: Edge Is not a option
    CycloDS or Acekard by your budget (and needs)

    EDGE isn't confirmed to be a clone. Sure, it uses a similar GUI and has updates at similar times. But does the CycloDS have a DSi compatible version sold at less than $20? I don't think so.

    And the EDGE has DS to Wii connection.

    And if that's the case, then it's not a clone. It'd be a budget version of the CycloDS.

    And this is coming from a person who actually owns an EDGE (I own an AK2i also, so I'm not a fanboy).

    So I've decided to go for an Acekard. What are the telltale signs of a fake?
