    ezflash vi is the most reliable, because it has the best build quality.

    The acekard 2i seems to have the most functions and support (thanks to developers making AKAIO), but the cartridge itself is flawed in build so many end up broken/not working. I prefer knowing something will work than somof the something that has more features, but could be a waste of money.

    my signature has my video review of the ezflash vi btw. check it out if you're interested. I'll try to review the ak2i when I can get one

    Reports of the Acekard 2i not working (well, dying actually) are sporadic at best; they also seem to be limited to one batch. However, it might be an idea to hold off as the m3/g6 team have just released the itouch 2 and plan on releasing a DSi version of the M3 real soon. Even if you don't want one, it should drive down current flash cart prices. As an example the Acekard 2i has gone from ~$25 (on Dealxtreme) to $17 last week and now is sitting at $14. Maybe the Chinese dollar is also getting stronger against the greenbank (cos the HK dollar is pegged to the USD) but I think it has to do with the M3/G6 team releasing their range of DSi carts.

    What about the R4i or the DSTTi? Are these any good for the DSi?

    Even i own a DSTT but i would not recommend DSTTi due to poor customer support or lack of update
    r4i? i have no idea..

    However, i am getting my hyper-r4i (another new DSi compatible card) this weekend will try it and then comment
    so far it seems like the team have been updating their firmware quite often

    until there are new DSi flash card release by other team you should just stick to acekard2i, ezvi !

    lol at zero383's post!

    Back on topic I ordered an Ezflash Vi a few days ago from DX...just be aware they are on back order ETA 5/2/2009 !

    (I am tempted to order an Acekard 2i whilst waiting, since it will probably ship faster. [​IMG] )

    Ive had no troubles with Acekards and ive ordered almost 20 over the years (for myself and other people). I dont think any of them have broken or had problems.

    The last 2 I got from Dealextreme, and theyre going strong!

    lol, I was using a retarded card in my lite.It was a little card card called a mars, it was low grade but lasted me a good year and its still kicking.
    , manage to keep it in good nick by never full taking it out of my ds, but i digress, if it had of broken I would of had to repair it like I repaired my dslite, super glue + an old news paper, it worked quite well, and it was cheaper and faster then ordering a new case *ROFL*, true story.

    I got no clue what there talking about lol, it looks to load faster then my mars cart (r4 clone) and I messed it up to high heaven to make it kick ass, I just ordered one of DX, so ill pimp the thing and see if i can get it to go faster, thought i don't know how to code, I can still look at the files and see how they work lol, its just hacked moon shell for crying out loud lol how hard can it be, I hope not has hard as getting brokenmugen to work, loading the people to play with,the stages & music lol.

    Anyway I like good hardware over software thats why I got the mars as my first cart for a plan ds cart & a clone for that matter it pawns.


    ps: already looking at how to skin it and what skins i can get.
