    (i have a really funny feeling this is going to be deleted but i really need to know...)
    And before you say something like 'check the sticky' or 'there's already hundreds of threads for that' - I've already looked and read.

    Hi,
    My brothers are getting a dsi for Christmas and i kinda need some advice on what flashcard to get them.
    I already have and original R4 for my lite with wood r4 1.18 and moonshell 2 on it and love it! This would be perfect but Wood r4 doesn't work on dsi (and I'm not sure about the one for R4i Gold)...

    Basically i am looking for a cheap (£20 or under - not the £ not $) flashcard that will support moonshell, SDHC (not major priority), near perfect game compatibility (not fussed on homebrew or Jpn/USA/Ger versions just EUR), cheat support and a team which actually does something and brings out updates often.

    Thanks,
    Wizzerzak [​IMG]

    P.S. Also it would need to be in time for Christmas if anyone knows a good supplier.

    oh another thing i dont really need these but would be useful:
    > Soft reset
    > Real-time save
    > Fit nicely into DSi
    > Decent skin database

    What you described is every flashcard for the DSi, here some flashcards that have active teams, work on DSi and do just what you want

    Acekard 2i A flashcard with plenty of features, updates quite often, and doesn't take up too much battery life.

    EZ-FLASH Vi PLUS Same as the first

    Supercard DS Onei Same as the first, but can use firmwares like Ysmenu

    Supercard DS Two Same as the first, but also includes features like GBA and SNES emulation and an on-board CPU. But it does take up a lot of battery life

    Changed the links up and felt like adding something to them

    The best out there is the SuperCard DSTWO. Will give you all of that and more -- GBA Emulator on any DS with using it's extra processing power, along with great SNES Emulator as well. Has near perfect game compatabillty (almost always does not need fixes or patches).

    Such an excellent flashcart. about 30-35 bucks US (less than 20 euros, right?)

    If you do not need all those features, go for the Acekard 2i. for 16 bucks US, and use AKAIO and you will have near perfect compatabillty. Not quite as good as DSTWO but still a great cheaper option for people who do not want GBA and SNES emulation. Just be warned that some SD cards do not work right with the latest AKAIO firmware.

    Buy it from ShopTemp, or for faster delivery promised for Christmas, buy from RealHotStuff.com. great site.

    You are very correct.

    Kind of upsetting... what was the real reason, anyways?

    i am sort of stuck between ak2i and r4i gold. is r4i gold worth getting now that wood r4 works on it, is there any guarantee that YWG will continue to support it, does it do everything the normal wood r4 does?

    sorry lota questions, i just need to be sure, especially as it's not me buying it.

    Would still recommend the DSTWO, but... [​IMG]

    The Acekard is a better choice. And yeah, sorry, I forgot about Wood. that's funny, though. considering I was doing that for a while until now. >_>

    AceKard, still.

    I would normally say go with Acekard 2i, but some recent news could really mess with AKAIO's fate, so go with R4i Gold, unless YWG vanishes, I am pretty damn sure he will keep with the updates.

    Nothing messes up with AKAIO.

    Akaio is #1 and will stay #1.

    True, but AKAIO's outlook might not be so well after the recent news from the R4 Ultra team
