    Hi. I just got back into the homebrew/flash scene with ds' and I had some questions.

    I have a M3DS Real that I bought in Japan. I've put a compatible version of Sakura and puzzle games on there for my girlfriend.

    I started playing Rhythm Heaven and I got hooked. Now I am considering buying a new flashcart.

    I have a ds lite.

    Would I be right in assuming that the top slot 1 devices would be m3 ds real and m3i zero?

    Here are some of my requirements:

    I don't need/or will buy a dsi so I don't care if its not compatible with dsi.
    I definitely want SAKURA compatiblity.
    I really don't use my DS for music or video or even homebrew for that matter.


    So, the most bang for buck slot 1 device that is compatible with Sakura. Suggestions please.


    Oh yeah,

    I heard about the SCDSTwo - is that worth getting?
    Also, can you please tell me the advantages of dual booting.

    Thank you all very much.

    This forum is great and the users rock!

    What's the point of using Sakura if you aren't using your DS for Media? You might as well get an Acekard 2i. If you NEED Sakura for some unknown reason though, you can't go wrong with the M3i Zero.

    the only upside of m3i zero over the m3 ds real is that it is compatible with DSi?

    btw: I want sakura mainly for UI.

    But YES, if i could play gba games, that would be a plus.

    Then get the M3 real + GBA expansion bundle.



    Crazy question -- as Sakura works only on M3 -- your choices are limited to just M3 Real or M3iZero

    So why did you post this twice? They were both in the wrong section I might add.

    ^That is what I said in your other topic.
