    Ok currently i have an M3 Simply DS and an EZ Flash V 3in1 (slot2 lite) and its okay but i think that the slot is damaged and that the M3Simply DS is no longer making updates....

    so my question is that i have tons o cash and am wondering what is the best Slot 1&2 combo i can get with lots of compatability on both NDS and GBA as well as homebrew (ie: Emulators and Web Browser)

    I really want to know so that by Christmas i can be 1337 h4x mastur. But seriously i want to be in good NDS Lite know how. so please post which is best Slot 1 and Best Slot 2 combo.

    Get the Cyclo for Slot 1. Dunno much about Slot 2 but I heard the EZ flash 3-in-1 is good [​IMG]

    DocL16 is correct.
    If money is no issue, the Cyclo is definitely what you want,
    and it is competely compatable with your current slot-2 device.

    The CycloDS is a great card, but if you don't care about game state saves and other seldom-used "advanced" features, save your money for college and get an Acekard 2.

    Probably the battery, a quick 4 dollar fix. Just open er up, tear out the battery from the prongs that are soldered on to it, head to Radio shack and replace the battery. I just used electrical tape to put it back between the prongs so I didn't have to unsolder and resolder that battery. I'm lazy like that. It's a CR1230 I believe.

    The Acekard 2 has one of the best menu systems of any flash cart (including the CycloDS) and also happens to be very reasonably priced. It doesn't have game state saves (also called "real time saves" or "RTS"), so if you're really keen on that feature and feel that it's worth the extra cost, you may still want to consider the CycloDS. In case you don't know, every flash cart lets you save games just as you would with a game cartridge -- RTS just lets you make a dump of the DS's memory (i.e. the state of a running game) to a file on your microSD card at any time during the game.

    Dealextreme.com has the Acekard 2 for $12.84 with a microSDHC reader and free shipping but make sure you allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery to the U.S.: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11811
