    The CycloDS is praised to be the best flashcart with the most features and a good GUI. Now then, can there be a flashcart later this year that will be even better than all of the DS Flashcarts released so far? I know DSTT is getting a new model soon, but will there be a flashcart that can even surpass CycloDS?

    I think my G6 Real is one hella good cart...

    PROS:
    100% compatibility with commercial games
    100% compatibility with Wii connectivity
    built in 1gigabyte memory (can't lose a microSD, or break a spring)

    CONS
    around 50% homebrew, and Download play will work with all non-Ninty (first party) games.
    VERY sporadic updates to "firmware" for SoftReset fixes

    You forgot to add "you can't buy them any more" to the list of cons.

    Is there really that much to be improved? CycloDS has everything I could want. Try not to be greedy. Just being able to have any flashcard in general is amazing.

    personally i dont care about wat a cart does b/c i think its probably alrdy close to its limitations in hardware
    but what i do want to see is better menu systems and firmware(i.e. Sakura) i think that the built in media player is really nice
    i think a nice flashcart should incorporate DSO + Moonshell plugins to have a web browsing,media playing, and a organizing all into one menu!
    although yea it would be a large file but through development it could come out

    i think that's what a new flashcart development team should strive for

    I think the main question is - what does better mean?

    If we're talking about features, well there is always going to be "one better" in production. I personally don't have too much doubt about that.

    If we're talking about pricing, value, long-term support, game & homebrew compatability, firmware enhancements...well the word "better" can take on a whole new meaning in people's eyes.

    I honestly don't think they can get too much better than the Cyclo. Pretty much 100% compatibility, along with the myriad of extra features, I don't know how much more they can do
