    I'm just doing some personal insight on how other people are utilizing their Nintendo DS and Flashcarts.
    Name some of the coolest Home-brew or features you have on your flashcart and are using on your Nintendo DS.

    I own a DSTWO, a DSTT clone from r4i-sdhc.com and a recently adquired Acekard 2i.
    Apart of using them for rom loading I use some exclusive features from them like the extra CPU on DSTWO and the Acekard for Akaio and its flashable bootloader. The clone is just because it was cheap

    my dad works for nintendo.
    but what do you use them for :O
    that's OP question

    anyway @Chuckz i use them mostly for roms lol
    sometimes emulators
    sometimes as save managers
    use them to play translated games or rom hacks
    my ds flashcart is pretty much abandoned, kinda lost interest in the DS, lately i had been playing gba a lot

    using a DS flashcart to play DS roms, doens't use emulators.
    using a GBA flashcart to play GBA roms, doesn't use emulators.
    playing game boy color games on DS requires emulators.

    We actually all live together, it's a polyamorous relationship.

    That thing is a rechargeable battery... for reference the black thing on the left is a standard microusb-B socket :)

    and yep, DSOne/i decided to use SRAM for saving instead of making the games write "directly" to the microsd (probably because it may be a less intrusive patch)

    idk, maybe space on the SD or something. Both can have a maximum of 2GB (but practically only 1GB).
