Hello

I currently have a DS Lite and I’m thinking about upgrading to a new DSI or DSI XL. I wanted to know if CycloDS would work on though systems & what might I have to do to get it to work?

BTW: I tried to search but failed

Acekard 2i, EZ-Flash Vi and Supercard DSTwo work with DSi, but may be a bit problematic to work if the DSi runs System Menu 1.4 or higher.
If they are not patched they wont boot.
And since you got a NDS Lite thats no problem, right? ;D

The cycloDS was a good cart, second only to the dstwo
but it's dead, the team is nowhere to be found, and the forum is no more

You don´t know how to read the package of your flashcard? It says:

"CycloDS Evolution for the Nintendo DS & DS Lite".

Any objections, lady?

Looks like cards have been dropping like flies. Cyclo, and TTDS this month. M3 is just about done. If you want reglar updates there are only two left. I wonder if everyone is just wating for the 3ds.

Wood firmware for R4DS, Acekard 2i and Supercard DStwo are more or less the only good choices now.
I'd have never recommended M3i Zero after my bad experiences with it, receiving a defective flashing cable, games not playing full speed, etc. I don't own an EZ Flash Vi, but feature and price-wise looks to be far, FAR better than M3i Zero.
I can't recommend a DSTT at all, it being crappy and unsupported, where the R4DS costs about as much and has Wood firmware.
And sadly, I can't recommend the CycloDS any more, being that it looks like they might have gone under, and is totally beaten by the Supercard DSTwo in price and features.

I think the EZ Flash is under rated...I like it a little more than my acekard
but that's just me and my opinion

the EZ Flash team also has a good record of supporting their carts, they may not be as fast as akaio, but good enough for me

You have two choices for carts that have proper support/updates.[*]Acekard 2i
  • Price: $15 from shoptemp.com
  • Advantages: Can use AKAIO, giving it compatibility with modern games. Can update itself and cheats over wifi, supports the DSi/XL, and supports memory cards up to 32GB.
  • Disadvantages: Can't do any of the special stuff the DSTwo can.
  • Rank: Mid-range card for people that want to play lots of games on a DSi/XL with some extra features.
[*]Supercard DSTwo
  • Price: $35 from shoptemp.com
  • Advantages: Supports the DSi/XL, can update itself even if the DSi won't run it, supports memory cards up to 32GB, real-time save (save states), in-game guide (show text and images from walkthroughs without having to reset the game), "free cheat" which lets you modify memory while the game is running, GBA and SNES emulator, slow motion, and more.
  • Disadvantages: The most expensive card.
  • Rank: Pretty much the ultimate card right now.

    so glad tipping culture is not a thing here but doesn't stop some places from trying... bars for some reason always make you type the price into the card scanner and i always type my pin... luckily it checks for that
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @The Real Jdbye, I have a thought. Do the charities even donate to help poor African children or anybody in need?

    They make a show of "not needing help" but then take it anyway.

    I mean they do have a point, developing nations don't need a can of beans, they need tools to grow their own beans.

    But that's a very long term project and it's easier to just pelt them with cans.
