    Well, I lost my R4 III, and since I might be needing to buy another one, I might as well get one that's better then the R4.

    So pretty much I need one that can:

    Load AR Cheats
    Wifi
    Nintendo Wii to DS Connectivity
    Media files work
    Most importantly play games without any problems

    EASY TO USE.

    Sorry if this topic has been done to death, as I am new to this forum.

    Most flash card should not have any problem with wifi

    however, from what i heard cycloDS got the best Wii to DS connectivity

    Media? as long the flash card supports moonshell or other means than is cool~! m3real + sakura is the best [​IMG]

    play games without any problems? go for ak2 + AKAIO

    if you are planning on getting a DSi, I recommend an Acekard 2i or wait adn see how the supercard one i is. IF ur sticking with a phat or lite get an Acekard 2.1

    well if you want one that can connect to wii then you have to get cyclods or G6 Real but otherwise i would highly recommend M3 DS Real Perfect Bundle version especially because of the sakura firmware im loving it [​IMG]

    is there like anything wrong with CycloDS?
    It sounds pretty good right about now

    but is there a difference between Black and white?
    or is it just color?

    Well, the DSTT does everything you've listed above. I've had it for a couple of months now and I'm completely satisfied with it. Sadly, I can't say the same about the DSTTi, mainly because I've never used it and also because quite a few people have been having problems with it. The DSTT's obviously better than any of the R4s mainly because of numerous legal issues and update problems they're facing these days. Then again, if you have more money to spend then a lot of people suggest going for the CycloDS. It's apparently the best Flash Cart out there.

    CycloDS is a solid card but overprice and lately the team haven't been updating their firmware [​IMG]
    i think the black one is the older version
    the new one should be white (i just got mine last week)

    DSTT? well i will say stay away from it [​IMG] it is a decent card but the team haven't been updating their firmware so such a long time! infact they are interested in the battle of clone wars [​IMG]

    for me my DS is for GAMING! so ak2 should be the best choice

    After going through a EZF-Advance to a G6lite to a R4 (clone) to a iTouch DS. The card that I've been most satisifed with so far is the iTouch, I'll likely get an iTouch2 when I eventually get a DSI (if I ever get one)

    It says on the CycloDS page, that it can Play GBA Roms?
    Without the expansion pack?

    Also thank you for all your opinons and feedback, greatly appreciated.

    I think you need a slot-2 card like the EZFlash 3-in-1 Plus Expansion pack to be able to play GBA ROMs on Cyclo. Been saving up to buy one for my Cyclo, in fact.

    As for the flashcart Q, go with Cyclo [​IMG] So far it has not let me down, and I think the little extra to pay for is worth it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The only thing keeping me from Buying Cyclo is the cheat support.

    Which seems a litle odd because I couldn't find a cheat editor.

    There is a cheat editor, but you won't actually need it, because you can use Narin's Cheat Database.
    You can find the cheat editor here, but it's a program with other features as well.

    These days it comes down to the Acekard 2 and the CycloDS. Read the reviews to see which one would suit you more

    DarkZBoy,
    you can use r4cce you to edit the cheats and save as cyclo format [​IMG]
