    A friend is looking for a flash card.

    I have always used the Cyclods but atm its a bit hit and miss on the updates

    what card can you guys recommend for me to get for him

    doesn't need dsi support will only be used in a ds lite
    wouldn't mind cheats like the Cyclods and a cart that won't need any patching to play clean roms

    cheers for any help

    An Original R4 will work just the way you want it to. I has regular updates and costs $6.00 on Shoptemp.

    I like my Acekard 2i. Its really simple, especially if all you want to do is just play backups.

    Supercard DS 2
    Great homebrew coming soon
    Most games work without patching
    Regular updates
    Dosent rely on 3rd party support that could end anytime
    However possiblity that 3rd party support could be made
    Best chance of 3DS support ( no garantees
    I have no qualms with it what so ever.

    I currently own an M3i Zero, Supercard DSTWO, Acekard 2i, and R4 DS.

    The DSTWO is by far the best card I have owned to date. The R4 DS with Wood is my second favorite mainly because Wood gets frequent updates. Acekard 2i would be my next favorite and last would be my M3i Zero with Sakura.

    The M3i Zero was a great card when I first got it but the M3 team is a joke when it comes to updates. I still can't play Super Scribblenauts on my M3i (Among others). The last update for the M3i was in September and it didn't patch much. If you based your opinion of the M3i solely on the description at OzModchips you'd think that the M3i was God's gift to the DS. It's far from it though. Which I blame entirely on the slow updates.

    The Supercard group (for the moment) are great about releasing updates/patches. It's really easy to update the card. The ability to pull up the menu in-game is worth the price alone to me.

    Honestly if I were in your shoes, I would buy myself the Supercard DSTWO and give my friend my old card.

    R4: good flashcart, but no flashable hardware, therefore, no compatible with dsi

    Acekard: another good flashcart, works with dsi, no gba compatibility.

    Supercard DSTwo: SUPER flashcart, works with dsi, gba and other cool app on it.

    Click supercard sig link to buy.

    If money isn't an option, go for the SuperCard DSTwo.
    If you don't wanna shell out close to $40 for piracy equipment, go for the Acekard 2i.

    Like you really wanted to point that out. [​IMG]

    As for the others: Referrals to ShopTemp are fine, but there's no need to beg.

    I know what you were saying, but after you there were a couple of people saying "make sure you press my sig".
