    i had a real R4 for my DS lite before it broke. i was wondering what would be the best for a north american DSi. i was only really looking at a R4i (yes i know its not the original maker)

    when you post a cart, please back up why and tell if it has function

    roms- i like to put all my games one one card
    Action Replay
    Wifi

    Basically, when playing a rom, does it function like a real game.

    I am sorry to say it but there are a lot of topics that are sane as yours..
    And there are also some reviews at gbatemp.
    I really suggest you do your own research before buy it because you're the one whos buying it not us.
    But, really stay away from R4 unless they are made from m3 team.
    If you know that, then other dsi carts are all good. and safe

    err, all flashcart is able to read Action replay codes, u just need to have a different database for those, just like cyclo uses .evo (i think) while others use .db or .dat file as their cheat database.

    as for flashcart, i can't really recommand any since i don own one [​IMG]

    Go buy some ak2i here: Acekard 2i

    OR

    You can wait for M3i, it has better GUI.. plus I think you don't need to get moonshell because the firmware itself runs multimedia files! M3i will be released soon..

    But if i were you, I'll wait for M3i.. [​IMG]

    AceKard 2i looks like a very active team from review "Has upgradable internal firmware to stop Nintendo from being able to block card in a firmware update" Although I don't think this is true Otherwise I could recommend the DSONEi Which I KNOW has upgradable internal firmware
    Acekard 2i GUI good
    DSONEi GUI sucks

    Wait for other flashcard to be released.
    The one on the market right now don't look like they had a lot of work on them.

    I'm agree with you, it's too early for the DSi & new the flash carts to be classified as the best of all but in my opinion, I would choose the new M3i Zero because it is completely upgradeable so it makes it really amazing because you can even put different firmwares, the way it boots, and even a new option to beat Nintendo if they release updates to block flash carts. When I read about it I was shocked, and I knew I could not expect less from the M3 team so just waiting for it I know I will love it. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] specially because I already got my DSi with few games to play & I don;t want to spend money in other carts, I want to save it for a new MicroSD card.

    I can only give you my opinion on the one I have. I got the Supercard DSonei and it works great.
    I only use it for roms and movies and both work fine. The new firmware for it is plenty fast and I just
    added moonshell 2.02 for the movies. I don't see how the GUI sucks, it displays the folders and files in a
    usable manner. My 6 y.o. daughter can navigate it with no problems.

    I say Acekard 2i. I've read the reviews over and over again and I think the Acekard 2i is the best. But yea I'm going to buy the M3i Zero. Much better looking then the Acekard 2i.

    But if you can't wait, buy the Acekard 2i.

    I second that, the DSonei is the only reasonable option [​IMG] I love mine.
