    I am going to give my friend an Amazon link so that he could buy a DSTT (only flashcart available on Amazon).

    Is there a difference between reals and fakes? Would this one be fake?

    I have read the stickies, but I am still confused of what firmware I should use...

    Should I use RetroGameFan's, YSMenu, or an unofficial DSTT kernal
    Answered buy Devpravo

    What firmwares have FakeKiller?

    Thanks in advance!

    Those unofficial kernals are just uncredited repacks of RGF's firmware updates and YSMenu needs RGF's files to remain up-to-date so you may as well just use the official RGF releases.

    Why not just buy from the likes of Real Hot Stuff? American based, fast/free shipping, and good prices.

    The DSTT is not a good flash cart, even with its updates. I honestly wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

    It's the only flashcart available on Amazon.

    Why can he only buy from those two places? I could maybe understand Amazon if it was a PayPal issue, but being willing to buy from eBay too, yet being unable to buy from consistently reputable dealers makes no sense to me.

    Where did you find that DSTT listing? I could only find one listing on Amazon, but there is nothing in stock.

    .co.uk and not .com. Regardless, I wouldn't buy a DSTT.

    DSTT is garbage dude.

    And when did amazon allow the sale of flash cart?
    I thought they banned it.

    Right it's cheap...and the R4 is cheaper, with faster updates, better compatibility, faster/better UI, and practically defeats the TTDS in all areas.

    ^Yup! Get the Original R4 if you only want the bare minimum (only want to play DS ROMs on a DS phat/lite, don't need updates for anything except DS ROM compatibility); the Acekard 2i if you want something that is reliable, constantly updated, and is still very cheap; and the Supercard DSTWO if you want something more powerful with all the extras.

    Whatever it is, please don't buy a new DSTT.



    ...But, to answer the question:
    Retro's official menus don't, and they are also the best alternative for a DSTT, so just use them.
