    I won't lie, I want to buy a flash card for playing DS backups, and if I do, this'll be the FOURTH Nintendo DS I've bought.. I've lost interest in it because I couldn't run homebrew and backups and I didn't have the money and resources to keep up with the latest thing. So my question is, what would be the best kit to get? I was eyeing this particular one, but my question is, will it do what I want it to do? I also apologizing if I'm breaking any rules here.

    Check out reviews on GBAtemp. They're pretty good.

    If you want the best flashcart and don't care about the price: CycloDS Evolution
    If you want the best flashcart but do care about the price: Acekard 2
    If you want a flashcart with onboard NAND memory and if you plan on developing: Acekard R.P.G.
    If you want a flashcart that also offers a Slot-2 (not for free though): EZFlash V & M3DS Real
    If you want a Slot-2 expansion: EZFlash 3-in-1 (GBA, RAM, & Rumble)
    If you want an alternative to the CycloDS Evolution but cheaper and a crappy GUI: SuperCard DS One
    If you want a flashcart that could possible brick your Nintendo DS: R4 DS, R4 III & N5

    I recommend this.

    Also: stay the fuck away from R4s and the like. This is all you need to know.

    What the hell? :\
    I own a R4 that I bought like last year...is that a problem? Should I change to a different flash cart in fear of getting bricked?

    Nah. It's just that pretty much every R4 you get today is a clone and those are badly build a lot of the time, thus some can brick your DS.
