    In my own opinion, I say go for an Acekard 2i instead. I've tried both an M3i Zero, and a Supercard(friends), and I still greatly prefer the AK2i. Plus, you can get akAIO XD

    thanks for the replay but I think I'll stick with the M3i Zero or Supercard DS Onei.
    I don't really care to pay more money for them and I like the extra futures they both have which is why I'm getting one of them.

    akAIO may rock and what not, but you forget that the m3i and scds1 are much more updatability even though it has been said that the acekard team have fixed the 1.4 firmware block (not released due to stability) there may be an update where the acekard team may not be able to fix it whereas the m3 and super card team have a higher chance of success in bypassing the updates, so yeah [​IMG]

    If you want one now, I too would recommend the ak2i. However, from the two you asked for I'd choose the m3i.

    why so many people prefer the AK2i I don't understand [​IMG]
    I mean, the M3i Zero and Supercard DS Onei both have more futures than the AK2i...
    not to mention the fact that vergilite reminded...

    Escape, not really. The extra features they have aren't really useful. I've tried both and still way prefer the Acekard(2i)

    The acekard can also be updated, albeit using a ds to do it. The reason most people prefer it is that AKAIO is simply the fastest updated and most compatible firmware out there. Combine that with the fact its cheaper than the rest, and most people dont need the extra features, its the obvious choice,

    as I said before, I don't really care about the price.
    I still think I'll be getting one of my choices.
    thanks for the info though.

    oh btw, can you skin both of the flash carts? (as in - change skins?)
    I think I'll be getting the M3i in the end =/

    Jeez, everyone's all AK2i this, AKAIO that. Ok, it's good, yes, but I can vouch for the M3i Zero. Sakura is by far the sexiest flashcart menu out there (unless you count MENUdo, but that's not released yet), and it all works flawlessly. Homebrew compatibility needs a little work, but throw DsKiosk onto your card and load homebrew from there. I haven't found a single homebrew app/game that hasn't worked from within DsKiosk. Skins are tough to make (as far as I know), but applying them is simple. Download Sakura skins from the M3 Sakura FAQ (.skn files), locate them in Sakura, and slide to the left or right to apply. Done.

    Trust me, you'll love the M3i Zero. I promise it. [​IMG]

    Yeah, You should.. for me, Supercard DS onei sucks because of its annoying slow-ness [​IMG] a fix would be good soon but I doubt it..
    The reason i am not buying a SCDSOi is because of its super long name.. lol just kidding.. because of it's slow GUI.. like really slow.. I've seen a video review on it.. and I am not impress...
