    Your friend is lying or scored off craigslist.

    The cheapest flashcart is DSTT I believe, but you may want to spend the extra money on a better flashcart with more features, support, and frequent updates. You especially need to be careful if you ever plan on owning a DSi.

    Check out the stores dealextreme and realhotstuff. Google for coupon codes!


    Also avoid the R4!

    FocalPrice has the 2.1 AceKards for $11.45.

    My first order shipped from China to the US in ~3 weeks. Placed another order for a friend on the 15th, left China yesterday...hopefully will be here sometime this week.

    Pretty much. I think they are actually (legitimately) a different company; but I could very well be wrong.

    Don't get an R4. Get an Acekard 2.1. I would recommend the CycloDS Evolution as my first choice, but you're looking for cheap flashcarts. The CycloDS is 50$ but it is the best flashcart out there. I won't go into details.

    The Acekard 2.1 is the second best flashcart, and if you are looking for a cheap one, or can't pay the price for the Cyclo, then get the Acekard 2.1.
