    Okay, so I recently bought a EDGE DS flashcard, to replace my Fake R4... (I now hate R4 in all shape and form...) and on the manual it says it can connect with the Wii, so I was like "Yay, More Pokemon for my ranch!" so I tried it just now, it connects and when it is on the screen "Connected to DS" my DS's screen is Blank... I don't know it could be a Bad ROM or something like that but is there any fix? Thanks in advance!

    There isn't, the edge can't connect to the wii. Only the cyclods can.

    And the G6 Real, not that you can buy those any more. AFAIK, this only applies to Pokemon games. The other game or two with Wii connectivity should work with pretty much any flashcart (Geometry Wars does anyway).

    This wouldn't be the first time a flashcart has had low down dirty lies in its advertised features. Then again, I don't have any personal experience with the EDGE or the Wii, so I can't claim that I know for a fact it doesn't work. I've just never heard of it working on any carts other than the Cyclo Evo and the G6 Real.

    Well it is working better with the Wii than my stupid R4 ever did, so you never know, maybe there will be an update making it work with the Wii...

    Well, the EDGE is basically a CycloDS clone, so as you've experiences connecting to the wii doesn't fail completely but yeah it's not a fully working feature.
    Though the team around EDGE have been very reliable when it comes to adding features they promised but didn't deliver (Oh the irony XD), like they did with skin-support.
