    I might be getting a M3 soon, and after having a G6 Real for a long time, was wondering what is so good about Sakura (other than it looks cool, from the video that I saw). Thanks for your help.

    Also, is this a good Micro SD card to get?

    A lot of people recommend the A-Data 4GB Class 6.

    Watch videos on youtube, search this forum and even better find out for yourself!

    That 4 GB SDHC Micro SD card looks good! Just buy and enjoy, the games are free anyway.

    besides the facelift, it operates much quicker and more fluent than the previous firmware. media features are all built in as well and it has a recently launched favorites that comes up upon boot.

    Basically, its faster, prettier, better media features has a favorites menu, recently used .nds file menu, and lot of other pretty little effects. One of these being the fade screen.

    The best benefits of Sakura:
    All of my homemade DPG porn that was slightly glitchy before, now looks flawless,
    the homebrew that works under Sakura now loads nearly twice as fast as on the M3 firmware, (if not faster)
    and reading ebooks with Sakura is just wonderful. Upon reboot, Sakura reopens the precise page I left off on. (much like viewing movies: they also resume wherever they were at when you shut down.)

    I really liked my M3Real before Sakura.
    I absolutely love it now.

    Nice. Now I got another question.
    Should I buy just the M3 Real from Real Hot Stuff for $39? Or should I buy it with the GBA expansion? I have an old G6 lite that I could use for GBA games, will it be usable through the M3?

    the G6 and M3 Perfect cards are nearly the same as the GBA Expansion Pack, except for the fact that they contain their own boot code, memory controllers, and in case of the G6, Memory. From a Slot-1 card standpoint, they are barely different at all from an Expansion Pack.

    When you close the DS while playing a movie, it seems like Sakura will shut the DS down after five minutes or so. When you turn it back on, the movie will resume to about five seconds from where you left off. That's a nice feature for forgetful people like myself.

    strange.
    for me after a few minutes it resumes the movie, while i have my DS closed.

    i just pause and turn my DS off if i need to pause for more than 10 seconds.
