    This is a poll to determine the most widely used operating system (front end) on the DS. Choose the option you primarily run your games from. You can choose more than one option if you have several flash carts or like to switch between environments.

    Edit: Added BAGplug
    Edit: Added Xenofile
    Edit: Added a few others (M3 and DSONE owners were left out)

    As expected akAIO has taken a pretty good lead.

    I have had a quick look at the results:

    • akIAO has trumped the list due to the Acekards popularity and the great job done by the akAIO team
    • DStwo standard OS has come in second place overall.
    • On the homebrew front, it looks like running Moonshell as a primary OS has had a strong win.
    • Overall, 43% of voters prefered running homebrew frontends over the top of the existing cards OS.
    Thanks to all those who voted.

    r4igold the cn version, normal firmware works perfectly
    got wood for it, use it sometimes but it's mostly pointless if the normal firmware works flawlessly [​IMG]

    It looks as if I have missed a few.

    Just a few questions, I don't know some of the cards.

    Is EOS the standard OS for the DSONE or an OS replacement?
    Isn't the M3 the same as the R4s? (Ducks string of insults from indignant M3 owners)
    What is Sakura? Sorry I haven’t heard of it. Is this for the M3? Is it an OS replacement or the OS that comes with the card, or is it a homebrew overlay that still requires an OS installed in the background to work?
    Do BAGplug, Xenofile, menudo and Imenu still require an OS installed in the background or are they complete OS replacements like akAIO and Wood?

    There's M3 Simply/R4, same thing. But then there's the normal M3DS firmware on cards like the M3 Real or M3i Zero.
    M3 Sakura is a moonshell 2-like firmware for M3 real, created by moonlight with the M3 Team.

    My vote goes to Sakura.

    my vote would go for sakura + ysm3 + woodm3 from the quadboot for m3izero ( by A little gay catboy )

    it seriously rocks out [​IMG] and m3 sakura GUI is simply awsome

    I might have to get an M3 to play around with. [​IMG] I need a DSTWO as well.

    Probably a tad late but I have added a few other poll choices.
