    Now, I know Paypal doesn't like flashcards. Is there any site that uses paypal secretly? Or is there alternatives. I don't feel comfortable using a direct credit card transfer.

    your best bet would be to contact a really trusted site and ask if they can take a paypal payment. they may take them privately on a case-by-case basis.

    Even shops that do publicly still advertise paypal need you to e-mail them for the info anyways, because if they're found they'll be shut down.

    Paypal's not a bank, so they're not under the same regulations. They can freeze any accounts and take bribes from Nintendo and shit all they want.

    I don't want to be argumentative, but the DSTT is $7 on nds-card.com, while the R4i Gold is $16. Also, what is so special about wood other than it being pretty?

    RTS for one, but mainly the ability to play games without somebody needing to update the information .dat files. Wood patches DS AP in general in a more modern manner, not needing per-game info like YSmenu and older softwares did, so it can play new ROM dumps as soon as they come out (barring new AP schemes).

    If YSmenu/RGF was as good as normal flash cart software (AKAIO/EoS/Wood, etc.) we wouldn't have as much of a reason to suggest other carts. :P
    RGF's updates are a fallback for people who have carts that get no more updates.

    DSTT is pretty much dead, a lot of the newer games won't work on it, or won't run properly.

    If you have a cart with the "DSTT" label that's a hardware copy of the original R4 when Wood R4 might work...

    But if you mean all those ports of Wood, they stopped.

    The cheap corded drills from Harbor Freight also work, but I've had them go up in smoke on me. Have yet to have that problem with a quality tool that costs a bit more.
