    I already have a R4 but I want to get a new one because the lack of updates and SDHC support.
    Also I want to get a slot-2 because I want to play GBA roms/homebrews on it.

    My wishes for the slot-1:

    - SDHC support
    - Frequent updates
    - 100% ROM / homebrew support
    - Skinnable
    - Real time save/load
    - Ingame cheats
    - Quick loading times if you get what i mean (just like R4)
    - good build quality

    I've been thinking cyclo ds/ supercard


    My wishes for slot-2:

    - reasonable amount of space for games
    - RAM
    - I don't need rumble.
    - be able to save gba games

    thanks in advance

    As for slot 1 you already answered your own question, either Scds1 or CycloDS Evolution.
    When it comes to slot 2 I'd recommend getting an EZ Flash IV.

    You don't need an flashed ds, because as far as i know every slot 1 card has nopass/passme/whatever
    built in.

    Slot-1, I'd recommend Acekard 2

    Slot-2, I'd recommend EZFlash 3 in 1

    Especially if price is an issue, as both are really cheap, but work well. (use Dealextreme)

    Dealextreme has the best prices as much as i checked Slot-1 cyclo or supercard? i would buy a supercard. if you buy from dealextreme heres the prices supercard $28.40 it's usally in stock i got mine shipped in 2 weeks if you count the days that the post office was close. cyclo ds is $49.90 and this product has a huge demend and might take 1 month- 2 months it's not in stock and won't be for a while.

    Slot-1: Supercard ds sdhc

    is there a Slot-2 that doesn't use SRAM battery? becuse it dies out and the Ez-flash use it.

    The acekard 2 doesn't meet his wishes

    Get the Cyclo + Ezflash 3 in 1 you can load the gba games straight from the cyclo menu.

    Oh yeah, I didn't see that he wanted real-time save and load. That kinda limits the choice to SCDS1 or CycloDS...

    But just for reference, you can load GBA games direct from the Acekard menu with a 3 in 1 if you use Bliss' firmware. (Or possibly AKAIO)

    Don't get a DSTT... seriously.

    It's very cheap, but it's interface is INCREDIBLY slow, and extra features don't really exist on it.

    SLOT 1 OMG, DEFFINETLY GET THE M3 DS REAL. Once you get that, you can gey first and last/rudolphs triple boot. with that, you can run the m3 real software, m3 sakura software (TOP OF THE LINE), and itouch software.

    SLOT 2 I would get the gba expansion pack, because it works with both sakura and real firmware, but ez 3 in 1 would also work with the gba exp loader.
