    Well, it seems that the M3 team is actually dead. It's a shame - I personally liked the Sakura interface :<
    Now I'm looking for a new card...

    A few questions:
    Does this get updated regularly?
    Do you recommend any other Flashcarts?
    How's the interface?

    Thanks.

    yes, it usually gets updated for firmware updates within the day, and ROM compatibility is excellent

    acekard 2i if you don't want to spend the extra money for the DSTwo

    the interface is decent, nothing to go showing off to everybody because of how cool it is

    Edit: you can see videos of it here in the Supercard DSTWO spoiler

    This flash cart doesn't need constant updates.

    Thanks.

    I've been away for a while - the last time I heard, the 3DS was able to log which programs were being run on it. How does the DSTWO get passed this?

    it logs the game it fakes being, not as a flashcart itself, nintendo can't tell the difference as far as we know

    Something the SCDS2 has that every other cart doesn't is the ability to fully emulate the original cart because of the extra CPU power. This makes most of the new releases work without an update or patch. A good example of this was the new pokemon games, even before everyone else could play them on their carts, I could play it on my SCDS2.

    Ah, so that's why it can emulate SNES games?

    no, it can emulate SNES games better than other flashcarts because it has a emulator made specifically to take advantage of the CPU in the DSTWO itself, same with GBA

    Thanks again.
    From the GBATemp review topic:

    Is this still the case?

    The SNES emulator came out later (and is open-source and was thus modified, CATSFC is the latest edition), the GBA emulator got updated as well.
