    I am looking for a flashcart for ds roms. So here's what I'm looking for.

    Can play DS/DSi Games

    Cheats (Action Replay/Gameshark, either or. Preferably both.)

    No Timebomb

    Works on 11.0 A9LH.

    Don't care about cost.

    Thanks!

    Is it easy to update the firmware?

    And are there any flashcarts that can play dsi games?

    DS TWO GAWDLIKE :D
    Has anti piracy fix, so no rom patching or firmware updates to make it work and also cheat searching like old school action replay :P

    I just wish i can find mine, how did i lose it? to play kid icarus uprising or super mario bros? :glare:

    DSi Enhanced, like Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, yes. DSi cartridges like white ones, I don't know.

    I just got a r4i Saturday, literally easiest drag n' drop for games, firmware even has wifi built in. $18 way better than my old CycloDS

    I'm going to recommend the Acekard 2i until I die, 100% compatibility with DS games and homebrew (like the other carts, no DSi games but there is like 1 total lol), fantastic build quality, the AKAIO firmware is comfy af, not as big a battery hog as the DSTWO (which will destroy your battery in sleep mode), cheat support, no time bomb, and works on a9lh without a launcher.

    Isn't the acekard 2i firmware the same as wood r4?

    No, the Acekard 2i uses the AKAIO firmware, not the wood firmware

    What's wood firmware and AKAIO firmware? Sorry. I'm a noob at these kind of things. And is the Acekard dsi enhanced? Like for pokemon black and white 2?

    AKAIO means AceKard All-In-One, and Wood r4 is the like the orignal acekard firmware. Both (but I definitely know r4i gold 3ds does, which is different from r4i gold pro) support pokemon black 2 and white 2.

    They both use the same themes so you can choose either one of them if you're just in for the themes. I've used both of them and they're both good but I'll stick with the R4i Gold 3DS as I used it longer and it has real time save. it's also cheaper by a few bucks according to nds-card.

    What's Real-Time save? My supercard has it and I don't get what it is.

    Basically like save states, where you can save your game at anytime (not like save feature in video games).

    Some flashcarts intentionally fail after a certain date and you need to update the firmware to fix it, which becomes a problem once firmware updates stop being supported.

    You can also set the date to a year earlier to fix it.
