    So I finally ordered my Acekard RPG and an EZ-Flash 3-in-1, I'm going to order a a MicroSD or MicroSDHC, but I'm not which or which brand yet.

    Anyway, I was curious if anyone could give me some advice on what I should install to get everything functioning optimally? I keep hearing about the Bliss GUI, is that something that'll be worth getting for the RPG?

    If it helps, I mainly want to play games, read books, use the internet (from what I hear I can use Opera?). I'm also in college right now as a game developer, so I'll be looking for some programs to help me design some homebrew games as well.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, does anyone have any suggestions on a micro card?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    i don't have an r.p.g but i can tell you that the bliss firmware is one great fork of the opensource firmware. you should put it on and try it out along with the normal firmware and pick the one you like the most.

    depending on what type of things you want your ds to do you can put on a web browser, a note pad, an organizer, a picture viewer, a movie viewer, a SIP phone, AIM, some fun homebrew puzzle games.. just check the download section of gbatemp for some homebrew and grab a few things to try out.

    for memory cards you can pick up a 2gb kingston msd with reader for 15.50 w/free shipping from here, or without the reader for 12 from here. i ordered from the site i just hyperlinked and had no problems. items arrived in 5 days and were official japanese kingstons with the correct product number on them. as for sdhc make sure you get a card that is a class 6. try here for a listing: http://www.meritline.com/sdhc-card1.html

    Yes, the AData is very good. In my cf_bench tests, the AData in the RPG is even faster the the inbuilt NAND.
    I suggest using AKBBS.

    EZ-flash 3in1 allows you to use opera, but you have to keep the following things in mind:
    you might need to patch the browser, since it doesn't automatically supports all types of RAM.
    you also need a manager for the EZ-flash 3in1 such as GBA EXPloader to enable RAM.

    Wrong wrong wrong.
    The Acekard custom firmware has support built-in for the 3in1.
