    Looking good im reading it right now.
    But the homebrew compatibility is almost perfect when you use touchpod.
    Great work though!

    That I noticed, but Touchpod is slightly annoying in certain aspects from what I've experienced and the review as a whole is more aimed towards M3Sakura since it's the newest OS of the two.

    Ok so you should add(if you want) that sakura has low homebrew compatibility so use touchpod for homebrew
    anyways still an awesome review [​IMG]

    Does this has connection on me buying a M3i and will receive it sometime first 3 days next week? Everything happens with a reason.

    I need this review. Now Im waiting for an updated Sakura firmware. Hopefully, it'll be online the day after I received my M3i.

    Thanks for the official review. I've been interested in getting an M3i Zero lately to go along side with my Acekard 2i. This might make my decision final.

    I trust my seller. I have nothing from Rocksoft. Thanks for the heads up, I'll try to ask him for more details. It has warranty of 1 week so I can test it out.

    Thanks for the heads up

    it looks like another one of the better cards for the dsi or else... the problems are not something many will complain of unless it's linked to RTS
    Nice review

    i got the m3i zero and i cant even program the firmware, really a waste of time.

    ezflashvi or acekard2i is much better

    Almost feels like all flash cards are good because they all state there compatibility is 100% I'm sure it is though. The only cons that bother me in a review is if its a flimsy build =P

    It's not like I think it's gonna break just like that, it's just that it could've been made better.

    Yeah,I may try one,I love the logo,that looks like something that would make my friends freak out when they see it. lol Flimsy builds are understandable,they make so many of them just to keep them selling,but if it was stronger it feels like you could have the card much longer,anyways... Great review! [​IMG]

    Meh. I don't care how good this is, M3 will stop supporting it in a few months to make way for their next product, and everybody who paid for it will be screwed over.

    I've just bought it and I have yet to use Sakura since I'm playing Mario&Luigi and it's not compatible. Waiting for the Sakura update, I'm fine with touchpod which works really well and in the end it's something I usually spend just a few seconds on, before loading the backup/homebrew/movie etc.
    The only annoying things I noticed are:
    -the card could've had a better build quality. doesn't suck, but things like a spring-loading transflash slot and the usb flashing cable small plug are a bit annoying.
    -you can store only 4 skins at a time for use with touchpod
    -as is said in the review, the lack of global option kinda sucks

    for the rest I'm happy and I hope the M3 team will indeed continue to support it in the future.

    EDIT: i forgot I wanted to ask...about the slot-2 functionality in DS/DSL could I use an old M3 Perfect (I have the SD model) for it?

    I couldn't agree more, they could have done it a lot better. Especially the USB flashing cable is just plain ridiculous!

    For the rest, great card, really good!

    I recently ordered one of these from DX, so I'll expect to receive it in about 2 months or so. I only have one question, I never noticed that the card was clipped together, Is it the same as the AK2.1? does the cart rattle at all, is it easily twisted or anything? Do you think it would do much harm if I super glued it together? I really don't like moving parts in something that shouldn't have them.
