    I have an ONYX DS Lite, and I want to get into modding it... What's a good site to buy one from? From what I've seen just thumbing through the forum is that the M3 Real is probably my best bet, right? Also, will 4GB's kensington be good enough for modding? or, should I get more? any information at all would be nice... Also, does the M3 support the opera browser??? : ) Thx

    CycloDS is (IMO) the best flashcart on the market. Check the GBAtemp reviews to see why.
    Also DS games vary in size, but my 4gb kingston holds 50+ DS games (trimmed) and a ton of NES/SNES/GBC/Genesis and homebrew games. Also the entire series of FLCL. I think you'll be fine.

    the CycloDS looks expensive... At least on the sites I am seeing... DX has the M3 for like 23... And I can get a 4Gb stick off new egg for 10 something... Will that take me where I need to go? Like to play some games, movies, or whatever?

    the m3 suks get the cyclo i did and its worth every penny. i recently switched from an r4ds to the cyclods and the cyclo has more features than any other card. do to dealwoot.com. if your still too cheap to buy the cyclo the next best card is and acekard 2 or an acekard 2i. and a 4 gb should be fine but im not sure if you can even use that with an m3 simplt because im not sure if it supports sdhc micro sd cards. GO CYCLO!!!!

    I had the M3 DS Real since its release and it works perfectly fine, it may not have all the same features the cycloDS has, but it does have perfect nds compatibility, AR codes function, soft-reset, and real time save, what more could you need?

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFf, I hate everyone just saying Cyclo is the best. M3 Real has pretty much the same features (Oh I'm sorry, but how many people use the ingame menu?), it has Sakura which is kick ass. You have a triple boot for iTouchDS, M3 Real touchpod, and Sakura. Does everything that the Cyclo does except for Wii connectivity (Which is pretty much supported by that pokemon ranch game which no -one really uses) and the ingame menu which might be pretty cool. Though the M3 Real is cheaper, another decent cart is the AK2 which is a cheap but great cart. IMHO get the M3 Real perfect bundle (Which is still cheaper than just the cyclo) and you can play GBA.

    blanco613 get your facts straight, the Cyclo isn't the most superior card anymore.

    Is DX or RaidenTech trustworthy?

    Dealextreme is fine, just make sure you pick the right one (they also sell the adaptese version - but do tell you in the listing) the "real" M3real should be about $24

    There are fake M3 cards around, you can tell as they put a different web page to get your firmware from

    www.adaptese.com
    www.adaptor.com

    the real version says www.adapter.com on the box

    Thanks for all your help. : ) I just ordered the M3 from that site, and a 4GB Kensington from NewEgg.
