    Hi,
    I'm looking for the best homebrew MP3 player for the DS, that will run on an ak2i flashcart.

    If it has metadata support (albums etc) that'd be a big plus. also, I can't use anything that requires special PC software or certain non-mp3 formats.

    Thanks,
    Lucario

    moonshell seems to replace the firmware of cards, and requires a windows PC to setup (read the part about PC software). i'd like something that I can load from my ak2i menu when i want to listen to music.

    Nope. Moonshell doesn't replace the firmware of cards, and it doesn't need a PC to set up.
    Just put the moonshell.nds file in your uSD and run it like any other homebrew.
    Also just put your MP3 files, that don't require any type of conversion, inside any folder in your uSD card, and it just works.
    No PC needed.

    PS: you also need to copy the moonshell folder to your sd card, all of that is in the downloadable moonshell zip file, but the file and folder names may somewhat vary because memory is not my forte.
