    Support is the main thing that is going to make my purchase choice on one of these slot 1 DS cards. I was wondering how often the CycloDS team updates the card and if it seems that they will continue to support the card in the future.


    Does most homebrew work on the CycloDS? I wonder this because since the R4 is most popular does that cause problems for homebrew apps on any other card?





    And last but not least is there some GBATemp recommended place for me to buy a CycloDS?

    From what I know about CycloDS is that they are one of the few, if not the only, American based company to produce these. Therefore, support is suppose to be top-notch, according to my friend who uses his. I'm still waiting my for my M3 to die before I get one, though.

    mod-chip.com was a bad decision, and the cyclods is a great cart which barely even needs updates, this isnt some crappy cart like the r4 that requires an update every few days to keep new roms workin, and its auto dldi so all homebrew should work w/o problem, unless its not dldi

    Ok. I think I'm getting it from mod-chip.com because of their ratings. Now what memory cards should I get for it so that I don't get any memory related issues (because that seems to be a big problem with most cards) I'm looking at around 2-4 gb cards.

    Look through the threads in this forum and you will see plenty of threads about cards. The a-data cards from newegg seem to be a great deal, the thread about ten threads down or so should give you a link and it's pretty damn cheap! Otherwise the japanese kingston cards seem to be a good bet.

    They're American based? Where'd you get this? If I had to guess I would've said English or Australian myself...

    BTW: ALL homebrew that I've tried on the Evolution that uses DLDI has worked v. for expample, my SCDS1 in which dslinux only sort of works(browsers fail to run, locking up the DS). Other than that the SCDS1 also runs everything, now that they've fixed their DLDI.

    Supercard for example still suppord they "old stuff". In my opinion if they ever will make successor of evo they will stop supporting evo too.

    So, you're pretty much asking people to predict, whether Cyclo will support their card for an unknown amount of time into the future?

    POS. I wish i could still get updates for this thing.

    I don't mind much that they don't support slot 2 cards anymore, no one ever buys them. Better to put the resources where people will appreciate it.

    Is this one of the good Japanese Kingston cards? I have a Fry's in my city so I won't have to pay shipping costs:

    Get the Cyclo. You won't regret it. It's a good card and has very good support.
