    You have to buy a flash card to be able to play roms and homebrew.

    Just get any flash card like AceKard2 or CycloDS and put their firmware on the card and you are good to go.

    cyclo ds is also good. it has;

    - wii connectivity (good if you want to upload your pokemons/use ds for pokemon battle revolution or pokemon ranch)
    - slow motion feature
    - save state feature

    the problem is it's expensive than the others and that it doesnt work on the DSi
