    I just found out about it. It apparently supports all ds systems and uses the Acekard 2i user interface.
    I think I might get one since its only 20$ but supports all systems and has an official firmware that has been reported as good. I found it here http://www.hackyourconsole.com/r4-dual-core/r4i-dual-core#product_tabs. Do you think it's worth getting?

    Maybe AFTER you've bought one or more.
    But on Ebay, that's on the seller, not the buyer.
    I havent had any problems.
    Been buying em from there all year long bro.

    $12.50, free ship, a steal.

    Well, all I know is that they are inexpensive, lightening fast, have very good homebrew support, are reliable and just plain kick ass.

    The quality of "the team" and or the contents of the card are none of the user's real concern, as long as they do what they were purchased to do, and that's run a shite load of games that would otherwise never be experienced without going near bankrupt.

    Kinda like cars.
    The common user doesn't really care what makes it work, what kind of guys the team who made it are, as long as the damn thing works well, gets them from point A to point B and is affordable and reliable.

    Besides, it's a $12-$20 toy, not a college tuition investment.

    Yeah, I don't like buying from those places.
    You have to use a credit card?

    I would much rather have someone shut down my paypal account than my bank account.

    That's like a death sentence.

    "What the fuck do you think other flash carts cost, $75 or something? XD"

    Dude you're the one that wants people to pay $20 to $40 for the lil cards because they have a "better team" and has a frickin flux capacitor inside or some shit.
    haha!

    3/4ths of the carts on the list are below $15 at Chinese import shops. I guess actually reading the info presented to you shouldn't be expected, what with confirmation bias, but oh well.

    May be there is a reason why there are _fricking flux capacitors_ in the card. But bothering to read must not be worth it.

    Trevor if you spend roughly $14 to get one from a reliable team that will prevent you from needing to buy a new one the next time a 3ds update is released because your shitty team has dropped support for their shitty card. "buy it good, buy it right, buy it once" as my old man says.

    If you're going to buy shit, then good on ya. But don't try to mislead other people who are seeking knowledge in areas that they otherwise are unknowing, by telling them that the cheapest shit they can find will be good forever. Even the recommended carts have needed new revisions to work with the 3ds past some updates, requiring more money spent. However, the supercard dstwo, the most expensive one on there, has not once. I'm glad to say I own two and have never had a problem with either, and they were well worth the $40, which is what a single ds game used to cost.

    Dude, it WILL last forever if people don't update their system firmwares.
    90% of the reason Nintendo even releases newer updates is to make life a living hell for people that are using these products.
    It's common sense, don't update your system and it won't stop working evertime Nintendo tries to pull the plug on your fun times.

    Tell me i'm wrong, that it's worth trading a couple of minor "updates" (usually very minimal changes) for your DS than continue getting multimedia support, homebrew, with all the benefits that come with all of that, in the end getting the most out of your DS system.

    And hey, i'm not telling anyone to go buy anything, i'm just providing options.

    To each his own.

    You guys get to post your ads and comments for stuff, so i will too.

    It's only fair that people get to hear more sides than 1 and get as many options into these things.

    But yknow what, you win.

    This back and forth arguing is a waste of effort.
    In so much argument, nobody wins.
    We're supposed to be a team.
    Now you guys made me cry...

    I'm going to go play my DSi now and try and forget about all of this... 3-) haha
