    So i talked to my friend that wants a flash cart, i told him to get the R4 since he isnt that much of a gamer and he doesnt need anything super special awesome like. he called me asking if an action replay can do the same thing, i tell him no, he calls me back a bit later saying that he thinks it can, he says it has a micro sd slot and that in the menu it said something about stored games, so i told him i would look into it, can an action replay be used as a flashcart? i doubt it but i want to make sure

    Not at all....AR is for codes only.

    No. The new action replays are for playing homebrew stored on a Micro SD Card, and of course activating cheats. Its also used to transfer data between the DS game, and your computer via Micro SD Card. Your friend is wrong, and needs a R4 at the least.

    Whatever happened to
    "R4 is crap"
    Let him get an AK2i or at least an m3.

    If he wants to use MicroSDHC (larger than 2GB) let him get in AK2i. Seriously!

    And if an R4 is okay for him for the love of all that's good about piracy don't let him get a knockoff. Make sure he gets an exact version of the R4DS. It's usually the cheapest, and it's the only R4 that is compatible with Wood R4 -.-

    Action Replay = Cheats
    Flash Cart = Gaming + Multimedia

    In order to cheat on the games that you want to play you need a flash cart that supports AR
    and
    AR cannot boot commercial roms/homebrew and etc....

    AR is for cheating while gaming not playing games or whatsoever
