    From what I hear, there is only 1. Its called Acekard 2i. Try googling and see what shops sell it.

    I hope to get a DSi someday, but $250 is a lot of money.

    I have heard bad things about the R4i. I would recommend the Acekard 2i from what I have heard. Or, wait a little while and see what else comes out. Like the M3i Real.

    As of now the best flashcart out there for DSi is the Acekard2i. I'd wait until there are more choices if I were you though. We don't even know if the Acekard2i will still be working tomorrow. Until they make flashcarts more future-proof I don't think they're worth spending your money on. It'd be a waste of $20 if it stopped working.

    or you could just not update your ds and not worry about the flashcart not working x]. Im waiting for my Acekard2i right now, but Ive heard the DSTTi works too :3

    EZ-Flash Vi or Acekard 2i

    take a look at http://www.dealextreme.com
    shipping takes its time ... but they are reliable and have very good prices

    on the more crappy side dstt i
    and on the extreme crap side R4i

    i think future games probably will require firmware updates, you know, like the wii/psp have?
    and not updating could probably break some games.

    think about it, none of the wii games require you to update the system firmware for the games to work. psps i believe did for some games, but lets stick with nintendo.
    Also another point. What do we use these flashcarts mostly for? Its to play ripped nds games. and these games will be played on the DS/DSL as well. Do those DS support firmware updates? No, so I dont think not updating your firmware on the DSi will cause much problems unless you plan to use the shop/DSiware features.

    I would wait for some better flashcarts to come out before getting:
    Acekard 2i
    DSTTi
    or
    R4i.
    Just wait till some better carts come out like M3i Real.

    Don't buy from Dealextreme it's a huge scam, I ordered an acekard2i from them and after over 2 weeks of waiting I get an empty box ! their so called phone number : (+86) 1353-0080-484 is out of service and paypal does not handle anything as long as you recieve "something" !

    Stay away from this scam as far as possible ! I can't even understand how some people here can recommand this site, they clearly never bought anything from it. I hope gbatemp staff do not stand for them because they recieve free flash carts or others.

    As more teams come into the DSi scene, carts should improve hopefully but remember don't pay over-the-top prices because none of the current carts have seen any DSi unique titles, and thats where the TC could be planning to come in.

    So price to pay shouldn't be too high, recommendations are AK 2i, EZ-Flash Vi & the NEW iTouch 2.

    Everything we say on this forum is someone's opinion. The question comes into whose opinion is more valid.
