So I'm gonna buy DS2 but I need to know which firmware and what's good about it.

I've got a DSi XL ver 1.4 and I need help about this.

Oh and I'm gonna buy it from Shoptemp. I live in Asia so I was wondering how long will it take.
(Sorry about the country being in US. I forgot to change it. Thanks.)

The DSTwo is special, it can update itself even if the DS won't run it, you'll have no problem with it when you get it.

  • DS / DS Lite
    The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
  • DSi / DSi XL
    The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
  • Game Updates
    Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
  • SDHC
    SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
  • AP Bypass
    The DSTwo has special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first.
  • RTS
    The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
  • In-Game Guide
    You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
  • Slow Motion
    The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
  • In-Game Cheats
    The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
  • Special Homebrew
    The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
  • Battery Life
    Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.

@Rydian

That's a cool chart you have there

Man looking at the chart makes me very happy to get it.(I don't really care about the battery life since I charge and play)

AKAIO's Anti-Anti-Piracy (AAP) is NOT the same thing as the DSTwo's "clean mode".

Its an attempt at software emulating reads below 8000h which is used to detect flashcarts.

It will solve the standard read below 8000h checks that are coming out recently
The AP it bypasses is the new "generic AP we'll stick on every game" that Nintendo came up with, that's why it's working on all the new titles. It's not something that can be done on "weaker" carts, it was mentioned the R4 is not capable of it properly, that's why Wood doesn't have that option and is patching the individual games as they come out.

It currently breaks single-cart download-play, that's why it's optional (so you can turn it off in order to use that feature), future AKAIO versions will not have the APP option on the screen because it'll be integrated.

It's nothing special, it's just a new line of AP bypasses like everything else, they just happened to nip it in the bud early.

I posted this info in the first page on the release thread, christ.

Dude, that is such an awesome .gif and such a convenient chart, thanks so much for posting it.

One thing, I'm obviously not doubting the DSTwo eats away battery life faster then other charts, it's probably inevitable due to the high CPU and RAM, but I've never had my DSi die on me in my 3-4 30 minute sprints of DS play on 2nd brightness before charging it.
