    Hi there,

    I currently have a DS and a DS Lite but am considering a DSi in the near future. I currently us a R4DS (genuine) but i am looking for a better card.

    I would like one that is:

    * Nintendo DSi Compatible and DS Lite Compatible
    * Fast easy menu
    * Ez 3in1 compatible on DS Lite
    * around 50 USD
    * Upgradeable

    Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Well, I'd probably recommend either the EZFlash Vi or the Supercard DSONEi.
    The EZVi has a faster menu, but the SCDSONEi has a way to "upgrade" itself (read: update) to bypass the latest firmware updates.
    They're both compatible with DSi/DS Lite, and they both are able to support the EZ 3in1.
    They're both less than $30 on DX.

    see my video review, its on the thread a few below this one. You can get a good look at it there...

    I'd personally recommend the acekard2i or itouch2. they dont have moonshell built into their firmware, but they're very stable with great features. They should both be able to update to bypass the newest firmware updates as well. (you just need to do it from a DS or DSlite if you already updated your DSi).

    Also, team cyclo may be announcing something soon...which is something I am keeping my eyes glued for.

    So it's basically between Acekard2i and Supercard DSONEi. Seeing as it could be 6 months before I buy a DSi the Supercard really has me there. But as i'm regularly using my ds, a slow menu would really bug me. Will future updates to the Supercard DSONEi adress this?

    Price wise they are mere dollars different but I would like something that is future proofed. If the supercard is likley to be updated then I will go with that.

    I was reading on another post that some Acekard's broke after a few days, is this true?

    i'd had never ask Normmatt about the HW81 version of ak2i
    apparently from what i read it can be updateable [​IMG]
    otherwise, how those people fix their language problem on ak2i

    BROKE? i will just say bad luck~! i have been using my ak2i heavily since january
    so far so good * touch wood *

    like I mentioned before, the card must be working in up to 6 months time when I upgrade to the DSi. Is it possible for the Supercard DSONEi firmware to be made fast in theory?

    no one can guaranty you anything especially by giving you a definitive date
    if it is blocked then the team would try their best to release an update as soon as possible!

    Supercard has slow support but they have had updates for their first devices since forever. You'll be in good hands with the DSONEi.
    As for the AK2i, didn't Acekard mention that if the exploit was blocked, they wouldn't release an updater to use a different exploit? I'm not counting the language fix.
