    My DSTWO arrived today and I searched some up on the internet. The Box looks a little bit different from the ones I found and the USB2.0 looks different as well. The box looks like this one. I got it from eachgame.me before they stop stocking flashcards. [​IMG]

    The packaging for the DSTwo has changed a few times, and we have seen at least one shop use custom packaging.

    We've never seen a fake DSTwo. If the special homebrew and EoS and such work you should be fine.

    Some DSTwo boxes and card stickers have been altered by stores to have their store's URL on them, among other changes.
    But they are always legit cards.
    There was a thread about this not to long ago.

    I don't think there is any fake DSTwo cards.
    There are some clone cards that do similar things like the EX4i, but most of them are more or less clones of other flashcards, with a few other features.

    Ok thanks. I was just asking because I can't get access of my friends DSlite until this weekend. I don't own an older ds to update the card.

    I haven't heard of a fake DSTWO yet.

    Even so, it SHOULD be china-only.

    Heck last time on my trip to Beijing I went to some commercial market (forgot the name... Some 'qiao'), they had all sorts of flashcarts which are not even heard of.
