    I love my R4DS but the only thing I hate about it is that it doesn't take cards bigger than 2 GB (I have a lot of data:))
    Is there a card just like r4ds (quality, cheat.dat file support) that takes SD > 2GB?
    I tried Supercard but I don't like it becouse it is slow and doesn'r support chead.dat file.

    Doesn't the DSTT use the same cheat.dat file as the R4. Rayder is probably the best person to ask.

    I use a 8GB microsdhc in my Cyclo DS Evo and it works great. I have plenty of room for about 100 Roms, 40 mp3s, and 10 Stargate SG-1 episodes in .dpg format. Everything works great and runs flawlessly. I'd highly recommend it

    Only the R4DS supports the cheat.dat file, its an encrypted cheat file made just for the R4DS while other flashcards have their own cheat formats. Almost every flashcard supports cheats, and most support them much better than the R4DS. Cheat support in the R4DS is buggy, it doesn't support all cheats and even cut some cheats off, making them unusable with some games. Also just about any flashcard except the R4DS and its clones support MicroSD cards greater than 2 gigs.

    The R4DS is a decent, sturdy flashcard, but its dated. Theres much better flashcards out there for the same price or cheaper than an R4DS.

    I thought the Bliss OS allowed AK2 to use cheat.dat instead of cheat.xml?

    You could use the DSTTMenu or YasuMenu on your SuperCard. These are a lot faster, and should support cheat.dat.

    By the way, if you need cheats for the R4DS, Supercard, or Acekard, check my signature [​IMG]

    you should be very happy with it. AK2 seems to be the go-to budget card that not only is super cheap, but also has one of the nicest and fastest GUI using the bliss loader.

    Actually, the Supercard is a really good card, the official firmware is slow, but there are several custom ones as you can see here
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=758...45&start=45
    Which are much faster and also the custom firmware supports the same cheat.dat files that the R4DS uses.

    Edit: Fixed the link

    You can basically find all the information you need in the Supercard forum. [​IMG]

    The Supercard has about 3-4 different firmwares, you should try them and see which one you like the most. I suggest trying Bliss and YSMeni. Instructions should be in the zip and in the Supercard forum.

    Ok. So I downloaded both - Bliss and YSmenu but I don't know how to implement both of them into my card. I tried multiple times and finally I gave up.
    Can Someone make an archive with both firmwares in seperate folders, so I can just copy them into the root of my card and finally see....
