    Then Original R4 (still only takes 2gb I believe, anything above is a clone)

    Then TTDS

    Thanks for that. However is the R4DS on the DEALEXTREME site a clone ? it claims to support upto 32GB...!!

    Where can I get hold of Cyclone DS ?

    The box of the R4 looks like another clone to me, not the original R4

    EDIT Actually looking again, it could be the original version, ill have a look around

    EDIT 2 Says R4 Version 2 so looks like its an original version yeah

    Where did you find the CYCLO DS ? Have looked around but haven't found any ?

    Where & how much did it cost ?

    What is the delivery time or estimate ?

    Would be great to know. Thanks....

    BOY!!!!!! £95.28

    DannyBoy wasn't kidding when he said it was a little bit dearer. I was thinking £30 or £40.

    I might just tryout the AceCard first. Having to part with £95 will require a lot of thinking on my part.

    HMMMmmmm...........

    ......Oh !!

    Cheers for clearing that up. I should've read it more carefully.

    Might opt for the CYCLO after all.

    Thanks !!

    Does anyone know if the AceKard GUI is skinable? If so, does it utilise themes that are available for other carts in the manner that R4/M3DS Simply used the same themes?

    The R4 GUI was intuitive and considering the one I order this time round will be used primarily by a young kid I'd prefer something simple for them like the R4 offered.

    Any advice/info lads?

    What's the story on these? I thought the R4 wasn't in production anymore.. isn't that the case, or are these clones? Any known issues or anything like that?

    your link goes to a load of necklaces butthere are loads of clones, they generally work as well as the official ones although theres no official support obviously. for the money a cyclo or acekard is a better option in my opinion.

    to answer dave208, the acekard is skinable but the skin you get with it is pretty nice, i gave up looking for an alternative for mine.

    So far I've heard that CYCLO DS is the best. I haven't tried it yet so can't really comment.

    However I recently purchased both the R4-III (probably a clone) and the AceKard2 and I will say for simply gaming and useability the AceKard2 wins handsdown.

    If you are going to hand the DS to the kids then AceKard GUI is the Easiest to use in my opinion.

    The cartridge is ok too. The MicroSD slot is a push click system so you don't have to take out the AceKard itself.
    With the R4DS you have to take out the whole cartridge to remove the MicroSD card.

    I personally think the AceKard is the best so far. (As many more have said before me too)

    Thanks to all the DF users for the advice....

    still life in the original r4ds. Just need to use YSMENU firmware instead. everything i hsve tried that didnt work with the 1.18 firmware works with the YSMENU. Other option is the arm7 patch, that seems to fix those games that crapout when accessing the savegame.
    hasta la yeah baby yeah!
