    Hey guys, i use to have a M3 Real flash card(with sakura running on it) but gave it to my nephew, so i am in the market for a new 1, so i want to know what the best flash card for the DS is, im also considering upgrading to a DSi so which is the best flash card for that and are there any cons to having a DSi flash card over a DS flash card? as i understand they are a little new

    EDIT: oh and do the DSi Flash Cards support games that use the camera?

    An Acekard. Best and cheapest. Put the AKAIO firmware and it's even better!

    Wrong forum surely....


    But yeah, Acekard 2i, once you have one you'll never look back. Akaio and paper ftw.

    Just be sure to check the stickies or search before using an Acekard with a DSi.

    Basically it will run the ROM as if in a real game card, so yes - should run camera fine.

    I'm surprised not many people tell the people who post these threads to search anymore.

    I stand corrected...

    As for discontinuation of Akaio...

    1. Would only adversly affect DSi owners as DS/DSL do not have updates to the OS and therefore roms that work now and in future will always work with current Akaio (or should anyway, by the time they don't new, better flashcards will be mega cheap anyway).

    2. If Norm does stop support then no doubt someone else would pick it up as the user community is huge.

    Nope, because they boot in DS 'mode' not DSi 'mode'.

    I don't think so. Get a Supercard or M3.

    All DSi flashcarts are DS flashcarts that bypass the DSi's blacklist. DSi flahcarts won't happen at least until we find the DSi's encryption key.

    I have an EZ-Flash Vi, and have very few complaints. It seems to get pretty frequent updates, and runs just about everything without needing any patching whatsoever. It was one of the first, if not the first, to run Spirit Tracks without patching.

    They've got a message board with frequent personal support, which means a lot to me. I've gotten direct help when needed.

    I can only think of two complaints: 1) it's not very popular compared to other flashcards, and therefore there isn't a lot of discussion on other message boards, and 2) lots and lots of homebrews don't run properly, and none of the frequent updates have addressed this.

    But that's it. All-around excellent flashcard. Two thumbs up.
