    Ok I've been thinking of buying a DSi but their was a rumor about flashcarts not working on the dsi or crashing the dsi. Any info on this is appretiate.

    PS- is there any flash cart that can play gba games without any slot 2 device,

    o dear, someone was missing out on the whole flashcard story lately, there are only a few cards that work AK2i being one of them, remember Google is your friend, and so is the search feature in this forum.

    No, DS flashcards do not work and no you can't play GBA games on a DS without a slot-2 device.

    Probably not. But Cyclops Team has produced a version of the CycloDS Evolution for the DSi, but it's not released to the public due to not being perfected (I think, I just know it's been made and sort of works with the JAP DSi).

    To be honest, I don't think anyone really knows the answer to that question (with the exception of Team Cyclops maybe). No official news has really been publicly broadcasted about the CycloDS concerning the DSi. There was one video posted where Team Cyclops showed a few features of a Cyclo working on the DSi, but because no descriptions were ever given for the video, no one truly knows what will happen yet.

    And unfortunately, the CycloDS forum is still down to this day, so the future is up in the air.

    There was news about Team Cyclops working on the matter, though they might just be releasing new carts. Also you can not play GBA games on a slot-1 device without a slot-2 device. However, there was news and a video of a guy working on a GBA emulator for the iPlayer on the DSi. Though this wouldn't work on other carts due to the iPlayer having special hardware built into the cart itself.

    Seriously, people need to do more research before replying to things such as this.

    Or in this case, people need to check the date of posting before replying. This thread was made in April!

    LOL, he just wants more attention, lust kidding.

    You could check out this video made by the CycloDS team a while ago. Interesting. They also said they wanted to try and update the original CycloDS (I'm assuming via a firmware flash) to work with the DSi instead of releasing a new card altogether.

    They announced on the forum that they're developing a new card anyway. Still in development; the date of the release is still only speculation though.
