    I actually have an R4 Original (no "i", no "SDHC", the Original one [​IMG]) and I quite realized it's rottening more and more each day passing (not physically, of course xD) [​IMG]
    So, I'm going to buy an all new flashcart, and I really need your help to decide! I first bought the R4 because it was the only flash the store near my house had (and still does...) so I didn't had to choose directly...
    So, which is, in your opinion the best flashy around? ^^
    It seems it's the Acekard 2i, isn't it? ^^
    Are all the most new roms completely compatible? I don't need to patch them (pratically I have to patch each game on my R4...)? How works HG/SS? ^^

    EDIT: Pardon, I have a few more questions ^^
    The Acekard 2i has ever given any problem to you, including roms' problems? Is it compatible with the DS Lite, isn't it? and with the Fat? Thank you! ^^

    No problems With Acekard 2i.

    If cycloDS would be around 25USD price point or so I would be suggesting it too, but for 45... against 16...

    So yeah.

    Acekard Has had no problems, there are random games (mostly it though drops to "showelware" titles) that are REPORTED to not work, as said, from 70 games I have around, none are malfunctioning (excluding Warioware D.I.Y. what is a fresh title... I mean, not even yet released... I mean, I DO NOT HAVE THAT GAME ON MY CARD [​IMG] )

    So, Acekard2i indeed is best ones to get. AKAIO has pretty fast updates it seems (i've seen only one yet, but even that did bunch of awesome shit so I am nothing else but happy)

    Thanks for the fast replies ^^
    I think I'll go for the Acekard, I'm going to buy it from here: http://shop.01media.com/
    is it good? it is recommended by GBAtemp itself, so I think it is ^^
    Last question, is it compatible with DS Fat? ^^

    Yeah, make sure you just get Acekard 2i, less hardware malfunctions - all DSi flashcarts work with normal DS models too, there is just additions to make it look like a genuine NDS cart so the DSi too will boot them.

    I've been really liking the new Supercard firmware. I can't wait until the DStwo comes out.

    i'd recommend the ak2i as well.

    supercard 2 is something to look forward to, but I'm expecting it to be very pricey.
