    1. http://www.superdslink.com/ (Chinese only - but English downloads are present)
    2. Yes, you should be able to flash different firmwares on.
    3. As far as those which have been tested, yes, 100% compatibility.
    4. Answered from the question above. Basically the N-Card = Ultra FlashPass EX. If it doesn't work, you can just use the UFPEX firmware.
    5. Yes

    Read the review on the UFPEX. It's the same model but rebadged.

    EDIT: Looks like they've added English to their website.

    Don't have one myself, so can only tell from what I've read...

    1. http://www.superdslink.com/ncenglish/nc-update.htm
    2. Haven't heard it was blocked, so think so...
    3. In playing DS roms it seems to have 100% compatibility, in Download Play it seems to have no compatibility at all, but it helps when you flash the receiving DS here, in homebrew it doesn't have much compatibility, I believe there's only a DLDI driver for reading at the moment, not for writing?
    4. Well, I believe they're the same...
    5. Hmm, seeing the picture, I would say the Slot2 Linker that comes with it is the size of a DS Lite, which would not fit in your DS Phat. So you probably won't be able to put files on it... (or you need to modify the thing manually to make it fit...)


    Whoops, should refresh first before posting. [​IMG]

    Ow well, have another answer for 5:

    Quite sure N-card has both the sizes of slot2 (pictures on their website)
    Ask the dealxtreme guys

    Okay looks like they changed it. They still have the picture of the DSPhat on the language selection page though, as well as the PHAT sized Fireline on the Chinese website

    i just ordered one of these but from close inspection, it seems the bottom cartridge is for a ds lite. does this work with the older "fat" DS systems? you have not advertised nor specified what DS systems this works on.

    Thanks

    Yes, according to info on a few other sites, it works on both models of DS. I think the only problem that it may stick out a couple millimeters from the GBA slot on the old DS, like the fake GBA games from China.

    Well, but that reply doesn't make much sense at all does it? It fits flush in a DS Lite, but sticks out in a DS Phat?... Hmm...
    The sites he's referring to are probably talking about the GBA cart sized, but I think you get the Lite sized one, because the picture says so...

    That's not the same slot 2 cart they show on dealextreme.com. The one they show on dealextreme.com is clearly a DS lite only device, the one on linker4u.com is a GBA/DS phat size device.

    the ds phat gba slot is a the size of a normal gba game, the lites gba cover does not fit, its too small,

    and you should wait for their e-mail, if they send you a ds phat sizes one then its fine, if they send you a dsl one you are in trouble.

    If the one on Deal Extreme does not fit into a DS phat, it appears that sky2k.com has a 1GB N-card for $32 plus shipping. A bit more expensive than Deal Extreme, unfortunately, but it'll do. the 2GB model is about $10 more there.

    I dunno, probably. Since I'm in the US, I've never asked. Their email response is usually very good (I recieved responses to my emails about 24 hours after I sent them), so you may want to try that. They ship from Hong Kong, so it should not matter where you are.
    Shipping speed is good too, I live on the US East Coast (about as far from HK as possible) and my order got to me about 6 business days after I ordered. Shipping is about $6 USD.
