    Either Acekard 2i, with AKAIO, or M30i. These are the most supported DSi flashcarts out there in the market right now.

    www.dealextreme.com - low prices, slow-ass shipping, not as reliable (based in Hong Kong)

    www.gamebygame.com - higher prices, fast shipping, very reliable (based in US)

    www.realhotstuff.com isn't too bad either. I got my CycloDS from them. Paid extra for shipping, as I needed it in two days, but it got here quick, and there were no issues in the ordering process.

    the M3i zero whoops Acekard 2i

    for the cheapest deal, buy it from here
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.26858
    dont buy the red box on dealextreme, it is a fake
    i would say dx is reliable, but they do have 2.5 week shipping to the US

    whatever you do, dont buy a AK2i, it lacks basic functions (such as rts)
    but if you are on a budget, buy a ezflash vi
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13683

    or, cheaper than the AK2i, the R4i sdhc & rts

    Don't get M3zero its an outdated GUI even with sakura which is an older version of moonlights Moonshell 2(who never got paid for it but thats another story). Acekard 2i is your best bet by far(for the price anyways). BTW hong kong shipping will take at least 2 weeks just to leave china these days so your better off to buy locally. Check out sponsors on main page of gbatemp.
    Myself I am buying from(but not a lot of choice):

    Clearly that's why he should never buy an Acekard. Because some clone probably made by M3 or whoever has RTS. Never mind the rest; no RTS = suck.

    first of all gbalpha (makers of m3) is a legit company, i dont understand why you call them cloners.

    no really. dont get an acekard. get a m3i zero, get a supercard ds 1 or 2, get a ezflash, get a r4i sdhc & rts (i actually respect the r4i)

    buy from dealextreme.com , m3 sakura is the BEST gui, integrated moonshell 2, and for updates you can run the real moonshell 2 on top of it

    but please, whatever you do, dont jump on the bandwagon and buy an acekard. its DESPICABLE, but then again, some people dont care about a great super-skinnable gui, or features, and these people should buy an DSTTi and run the moonshell 2.05 exploit with ysmenu.

    acekard team has proven themselves by having an unofficial team make the kernel/menu. but whatever, listen to the proud-to-be-a-fool acekarders.. ..... sigh

    @sumarth Give me 10 reasons that I can't answer or reply well about the acekard being bad.

    No rts is not a basic function. None of the real time functions is basic. R4i huh I laugh at that.

    its the end of 2009. nds has been around for what, 5+ years. Yes, when the $ 9.41 USD hyper-r4i can offer a rts, it IS basic.

    whats not basic - gba emulation, iplayer video functionality, m3 sakura style gui

    and yes, i have heard good things about acekard, especially about AKAIO, and about fast updates, but name a RECENTLY popular card that does not have a rts ...

    click the link, check out the r4i's site. its actually look like a decent company's site
    i dont know how their gui is, but really, if it is good, the card is decent.

    acekard is not bad, its well updated, etc, good menu, etc, but it is not keeping up with the current standards for features, and that is what an rts is today, a standard. DSTT was once called a budget card, today there are r4s with real time functions that are cheaper

    btw, when i talk about prices, i mean dealextreme

    damn, i am indian, living in america, and my grammar sounds chinese on this site [​IMG]

    Does everyone need RTS. No

    Wtf is M3 sakura style gui

    I still don't trust R4 whatsoever

    The rts R4s one being the Hyper R4i is a clone of the ez flash vi. Name one that uses the R4 firmware. No the M3 r4i rts doesn't count. It uses the dstt firmware with probably the m3's rts

    Actually scratch I was thinking of the R4i SDHC version the make. http://www.r4rts.cn/compareguide-en.htm

    Anyways to 2) Do you stare at the gui all day instead of launching your rom? [​IMG] I don't and I don't mind it not having the moonshell intergrated stuff.

    3) If it was named R4 then I wouldn't have akaio which I love. With that no I wouldn't be getting one.
