    I have a "M3DS Real" card and is wondering if I can change firmware from the original, M3G6 one, to some other (Im currenly using M3G6_DS_Real_4.3a x40)? And if so what firmware should I choose and why? Ive seen alot of people talking about Sakura something, but I havent found anyone explaining why I should choose it or what difference there is between the "original" firmware and Sakura.

    And what is a good place to get the latest firmwares from? I currently getting mine from http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

    read the M3 SAKURA FAQ here

    the new 1.35 loader now includes both SAKURA and the 4.3a X (Touchpod) loaders in a DUAL BOOT function as standard [​IMG]

    Ok, gonna read that post, but from what I saw, when just looking at it, it didnt explain the difference between the "original" (is that the same as "Touchpod?) and Sakura. In what way are Sakura better/worse then the original?

    touchpod is the original firmware.
    m3sakura has as downside that it has problems with some homebrew, doesn't have default gb/gbc/nes emulators built in, and doesn't support opening multiple media files at the same time(like reading an e-book while listening to music).

    but it has a much smoother and faster menu.
    supports single file skins, without a limit on the amount of skins accessible without using a PC.
    supports all filetypes from the same filebrowser(original firmware has 1 filebrowser for NDS, 1 for GBA, 2 for homebrew, 1 for images, 1 for text, 1 for music, and 1 for movies).
    and has a much better movie player built-in.

    Wha...?! Touchpod has built-in emulators? How did I miss this? Guess I actually have a reason to use it again (and to fill up my card with NES ROMS [​IMG])

    it does, but they run through the GBA expansion.
