    The DSTWO needs a firmware update, but can do it yourself. You only really need the flashing service with the DSTWO if you have no clue about flashcarts. It's mainly for the Acekard 2i.

    Price should be $1, or $2 if purchased with a MicroSD card as they will set that up at the same.

    edit:$43.95 = DSTWO + 2GB MicroSD card + Flashing Service?

    The flashing adds the most recent firmware and such as well, as tk_saturn said it's useful for people that aren't very tech-y.

    for the dstwo you don't need it
    the latest EOS (1.07) will fix the 1.4.1 problem

    And the 1.05 firmware is not recommended anyways

    Yes, and it also updates the card to bypass the DSi 1.4 (or 1.4.1) update (if the card has such an update available).

    Yes, the flashing+update is charged at the same time as everything else.

    the dstwo does not need to be flashed to work on 1.4.1
    all that is needed is a .dat file which is included in EOS 1.07
