    *Note: I would not make this due to the other topic from another user, but he's looking for DSi support, I am NOT*

    Anyways, I have an R4, and after realizing that M&L3 does not work, Nintendo will use this as an advantage to reduce some flash carts...

    I am looking for the most current, and usually updated quickly flash card, that actually works with M&L3 too. I have a DS lite and only that.

    Does Acekard work? I heard the DSi version does but I'm not sure about the DS/lite versions?

    Unless Dealextreme is lying to me, the AK2i works for DS/Lite versions also.

    Ah really? Then I might as well get it.

    I would order it from Dealextreme but that's where I ordered my R4 from and it took almost a week.

    Have they fixed their shipping speed? I mean I know it's coming from Japan but I've ordered things off ebay from JP as well, and it only took 2 weeks max :/ not 4.

    DX is located in Hong Kong. The shipping is still somewhat slow, but hey there's no tax and it's free. I can't complain.

    Ah it's from Hong Kong? My mistake ;D.

    But is there any other trusted sources/sites where I can order it from, no knock offs etc. [even though Acekard is apparently an R4 knock off...oh well]? I really don't care about tax, I just want it quicker than a MONTH.

    This is exactly what I was looking for, came here to create a topic, lol.

    So... Acekard 2i works with Nintendo DS Lite and it's a good cart that also play M&L3? Awesome.

    For now, it looks like AceKard 2i is the winner in terms of speed & compatibility. I'd say it's a safe bet, I'm going to get another flashcart soon for myself since my little brother just gave my GF his old DSTT. If I were to get a new one, it would definitely be AceKard 2i as it seems to have official support and firmware updates.
