I am buying a ds for my gf and ordering another AK2 and since I am buying this i figured I might as well order a slot 2 device for myself. I will be using the current AKAIO firmware. Now to be honest I am really only interested in GBA games, not rumble and ram. I have read all over the forum that the 3in1 is compatible but i cant find any documentation as to what OTHER slot 2 devices are supported. and since i will never use these other options i was wondering if there is something cheaper/better. can i use something other than the 3in1???? if so what devices are compatible? also: is it possible to access my saves and back them up? will i lose my saves if i change to a different game/power off the system? willl i have to use a loader homebrew or will AKAIO work without losing my saves? can i use a slot 2 device to "migrate" pokemon to my Platinum game? i searched the forum for about 15 minutes before posting this and couldn't find any definite answers. any help is greatly appreciated.
