    I'm trying to decide to get either the R4DS or the DSTT for my Nintendo DS, I found a good deal at Dangbox.com the R4 comes with a Free 1gb Micro SD and the DSTT comes with a Free Hori Screen protector, I just don't know which is the better card, anyone know?

    for another opinion, there's this thread on another forum:

    but of course, i came to this forum after much fruitless googling to see if the OS of your computer matters for any of this stuff and then answered my own question while finding an answer to yours, so thanks :)

    btw.... http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10289~r.53733725 seems to be a much better deal...
    (just read up and make sure that what your buying isn't a bootleg ;) )

    i think r4ds is better,because the newest system files has released,so all the new games can paly.
    By the way there is a more better place to buy r4ds Only $18.00( http://www.digimartz.com ) , you can choose a micrsoSD card at ebay,so you can save more.

    I have a concern here ...

    Given that ~99% of the usage of these things is for playing games that are either pirated or copied to the memory card in violation of Nintendo's EULA, this seems a dodgy subject ...

    But that therefore means that ~1% aren't...

    That is true; there are valid homebrew projects out there that allow you to use the DS hardware in a variety of ways (media players, etc) other than just pirating stuff. :)

    I have an M3 but I don't pirate games. Granted all I use it for now is Lemmings DS so I haven't used it in a lonnng time.
    Though most people are using it for piracy reasons.

    Absolutely, which is why I'm not running around with my head on fire screaming 'Piracy!'. But entirely too often - especially with regards to custom firmware on PSP - the discussion talks about the vast and burgeoning homebrew market and how that justifies everything. I appreciate that there is good work being done that adds value ... so long as we don't kid ourselves that the vast and overwhelming majority of folks use this stuff to avoid paying for games.

    i got acekard2 just because i liked their UI and skins, although it bugs me how tight it fits in the ds..

    about the piracy thing.. that's true that this stuff's mostly used for pirating games, but i just like not having to switch cartridges every time I switch games (i've had a ds for awhile so i have all the games i play, but this flash cart thing is completely new to me), not to mention i can put my family and friends' pics on my skin ^^

    R4 DS is better

    Hi, there!
    I think R4 is much better.
    And the latest kernel 1.19 was released!
    with this kernel you could play the latest games, which released by Nintendo!

    I got my R4 from www.gamekool.com, it's $17.95, they offer coupon right now!
    The code is 2008, it can save you 2 bucks!:)

    Hope you could find some good stuff!

    yay someone who works for R4! (or a reseller)

    anyway, my R4DS does everything I need it to.

    nothing better than storing the majority of my carts on a single cart. no need to fumble to find the tiny things in my bag, lose them, break them.

    I can have 15+ games on my R4 at once!

    The 1.19 kernel is fake. Saw that in a forum. The 1.18 works fine for new games. Have you had any problems with it?
