    So far, not impressed. Same features besides AP bypass can be done by EZ-Flash V.

    But iSmart did say that they are producing another cart with GBA Emulation, comparable to SCDS2. So I'll wait and see.

    "The card boasts an Anti-Piracy routine which should allow all current and expected anti-piracy measures to be circumvented, similar to the SCDS2 but without the on-board CPU. In addition, the development team has stated that the card supports faster read speeds, a "smart" save file size detection routine, action replay cheats, multi-lingual support, and more."


    Ah a refreshing line to see from a product these days. I still remember all the issues with copy protections on the SNES for backup units and the newer copiers being able to circumvent them. But it seems like they didn't really improve after 1995.

    Other features that were good in those devices were the goldfinger and then the game genie code support as well as real time save. RTS didn't work in every SNES game though. I wonder if there are games for the DS that have issues with it as well. I haven't come across any but ever since I got an M3i Zero or R4i RTS, I hadn't really used this feature very much as I am not a hardcore DS gamer.

    It's good to see a continuing effort on these. Once the 3DS comes out, we won't be seeing very many games coming out on DS any more and I am assuming that most games will not have anti piracy built in. But sometimes there's the very few that trickle out toward the end that do.

    Slightly on topic too, I haven't ever tried the "wood" firmware on the old R4. I'm assuming that it will work on the old M3 as well so I might one day throw it on there and pop it in and see. Biggest problem with the R4 though is it will not work on a DSi so it doesn't serve me very much purpose. With the price falling now on brand new DS Lite systems, might be time to pick one up. I still have the original version DS system and the DSi is ever so improved over the DS Lite so I never ended up picking one up.

    That looks like a EZ Flash Vi rip off with a DSTWO GUI rip off as well. It looks like its cloning both of them but making it their own thing. I don't know but 15 bucks for this flashcart will not be making me buy it. I would rather get the real thing.

    I like having RTS. This may end up beating Acekard on price and function. We'll have to see what happens after the sdk is released. A port of AKAIO or Wood with rts and rtg would be nice.

    Looks like a fancy ploy to rake in money. But I can't see any reason to buy it unless the only flash kit you have is an old Max Media Dock. [and to be honest I think a max media dock might actually be BETTER than this thing. rofl]

    I dont have an NDSL or Originl anymore so my MMD s just sitting around, but it still works just fine. And I have an AceKard2i that works like a dream. o_o and RealTimeSave is not really a good feature. As it will likely be buggy. And if you REALLY need a feature to let you show a guide while your playing the DS game you might as well just watch a video of someone else playing it and save yourself the trouble.

    Wow some people sound so stupid. I guess you should be doing the review since you've already used the card.

    No kidding.

    I love my EZ-Flash Vi. It's a fabulous card. That's the one thing that keeps it from being perfect.

    I didn't read all of the impression, but I don't see why you would want this.

    It doesn't do anything different than any other DSi flashcart. I would just stick to the Acekard2i or DSTWO if you want the CPU.

    Also, if you say it out loud, it kinda sounds like a contradiction...

    Doesn't SCDS2 have slot-1 GBA emulation, or am I mistaken?

    And internal CPUs which I believe are as fast/faster than the DS.
