    I want to buy a Cart I don't know what one to buy though. I wanted to ask for help on the forums to make my decision. So here are the rules to my purchase.

    1. Must be under 50 bucks overall with shipping.
    2. Retailer must be able to ship to Canadian addresses.
    3. Not a bundle deal just strait cart.
    4. Compatible with a 2gb MicroSD.
    5. Must be able to run MoonShell 2 and be able to run fully the Commercial roms on Moonshell 2 tutorial in the homebrew section.

    I'm thinking it is probably going to be R4 or something like that.

    EDIT: and it has to be able to work on the DS lite! As a side note just wondering could doing stuff like this brick the ds?

    EDIT: Also I would like it if said retailer accepts payment other then paypal and credit card

    Most people suggest shoptemp.com
    Under $50 gives you a LOT of room.

    Getting cards to work with ds or ds lite is easy, all are compatible.

    Super card two is coming out in a few days $40
    The supercard one is $20-25

    Many like the aki2 which is also cheap.


    edit:
    I got mine from realhotstuff.com
    got it fast and its perfect quality.

    Actually there is no release date set for the SCDSTwo so I wouldn't say "a few days".

    CycloDS Evolution is currently the best working DS flashcard in my opinion if you don't mind the ~$40 that it costs in shoptemp. That card doesn't have DSi compatibility but it works like a charm on the DS/DSL and has fast updates. It also has Real Time Saves, Slow Motion and some other features that other cards don't have.

    They also sell CycloDS Evolutions @ DealExtreme..

    If you want a cheap card that just plays games and has some features (but not real time saves, slow motion, etc), go for the AK2i with AKAIO firmware. It has around the same game support with AKAIO that the CycloDS Evolution has with it's firmware.

    Sorry I was asking more for opinions and if it supports MoonShell 2.10 but you're right I should have looked at that first.
