    ive decided to either get the itouch or the edge flashcart.....which is easier to use?

    All i want from my flashcart is to be able to play DS games, watch movies, and listen to music without problems

    That's easy. Acekard 2.
    And the interface is especially awesome.

    I'd get the Edge. Check out the GBATemp reviews of both and make your own decision [​IMG]

    so is the Itouch DS not easy to use then? I read reviews for both and they both seemed solid.

    I used to have an R4 and that was really easy to use but now that its in the dust i need something new

    The iTouch's menu did update recently and it has gotten considerably faster than M3 Real's original firmware, but it still is a bit clunky. But the M3 team is considered to be pretty reliable.

    Edge is a card I have heard multiple suggestions and it is very similar to the CycloDS's menu so I expect it to be faster than the iTouch's. Compatibility should be no problem compared to the iTouch's. There are a bit less features though(no RTS, RTG, ingame menu). And the team did make a clone... Or a cart that is VERY similar to the Cyclo, so it's a bit of a question.

    Well considering the Itouch is cheaper and honestly all these carts do the same thing, I'd go for it instead. But if you want more features then the Edge has more. But since its the same price as the Acekard 2, I'd probably get the Acekard instead.

    Screw it and get a SCDS1 [​IMG]

    Screw the rest and get the Edge. It is the best card on the market in that price range.

    My best friend on GBAtemp will personally help you with it all. His username is SEARCH FUNCTION. If you can't find him, then you'll just have to wait for someone else to reply to your questions.

    Asswipe, the guy just was just asking nicely [​IMG] Yes, the search function is useful but the guy is new here and might need a little guidance still.


    pacman_89, I won an iTouch in the contest and if no one else helps then I'd be glad too as soon as I get mine and tinker with it [​IMG]

    Actually, I got an iTouch from DX and it didn't have the notorious clips. If you receive one of those, then you're getting an older version unloaded on you.

    @754boy
    Talk to me when you are a 754man/adult. There is nothing insulting about my tone. No need to be getting all filled with internet testosterone or butt hurt. My friend SEARCH FUNCTION exists. He helped me when I first came here. I want him to help everyone.

    Well I'd get an AK2 as well, since it seems the batch of DOA carts are finally gone.

    The link is to the triple boot for M3 Real Sakura iTouch DS firmware
    from this thread: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=90978

    That's a good starting point.
