    Quick summary:

    Passcards
    Passcards are passme's that don't require a DS game, and that fit completely in the DS lot.
    They usually don't stick out from the DS at all. This solution is absolutely riskless.
    Passcards are quite cheap nowadays.
    Edit: I hear passcards suck battery faster than other hacking solutions.. to be confirmed

    Flashme
    Flashme is a firmware hack. It's risky, since you can brick your DS.
    Although once flashed, you can't get your ds bricked by homebrew apps (yeah ds viruses exist. thank you darkfader and happy birthday)
    And to flash your DS you also need a passme or a passcard (once flashed, these are no longer required).

    Passme / Passkey / Superpass
    You all know what a passme is.
    They require a DS game. They stick out from the DS a lot.
    But they're so cheap now.

    Other
    There are other solutions.
    The MKx (MK2, MK3?) or some neoflash products are supposed to work in the DS slot without even a GBA flashcart.
    I don't know more about it.
    And there might soon be that NinjaDS thingy but we don't know much yet.

    They all suck
    Of course, buying games rocks and is always the best solution.
    It's also the most expensive [​IMG]

    TPi sucks
    TPi might be what you're looking for. It can get you free DS games!
    You should PM him for more information.


    So now, tell us what you think is the best way to hack your nintendo DS.

    TPi totally sucks. That guy is just so incredibly not cool. He is not random in any way and never says a word. Yep. Not a word.

    Okay actually getting on topic, while I voted for TPi Sucks my unofficial vote has to go for Passme. We would not be anywhere right now without them.

    I will go with Flashme for now but if a custom firmware like FWNitro takes off then I will go with that.

    I would hate to see TPi's inbox after this stunt as well.

    If you are really stupid, it might be possible to brick your DS while installing FlashMe. However, once you have got it installed, your DS is save from the bricker. It's probably rare but I would be afraid to run any roms or homebrew if I did not have FlashMe installed. It's also very annoying to use a huge PassMe or a PassMe 2 with an old SuperCard. The new NoPass solutions might be a better choice but the MML does not support sleep mode and the Passcard 3 is expensive. Use FlashMe, it's easily the best choice and it's futureproof.

    FlashMe FTW! [​IMG] nothing sticks out, you spare the battery, and... it's free (as long as you borrow a passme from a friend [​IMG])

    Flashme definately. Why would you want to use a passme device when you have flashme? [​IMG]

    Who are all these mouth-breathers that keep voting for PassKey/SuperPass? That shit is unwieldy as fuck.

    TPi doesn't suck.

    I don't know which one to choose, though.
