You can obviously do tons of hardware mods, case replacements, LEDs, PulseVU type things, etc.

As for the other kind of mods there are a few avenues to pick from.
1. Buy a slot-1 flashcart and not alter anything. Slot-1 carts work without any modifications to play NDS backups and homebrew. But, you cannot play GBA backups.
2. Buy a slot-2 flashcart and play a vast majority of NDS and GBA backups and homebrew. But you need to flash the firmware in order to get the DS to read from the GBA slot instead of looking in the NDS slot.
3. Buy both, and have the best of both worlds, and no need to flash firmware. Some slot-2 carts offer things such as rumble, or extra RAM for the Opera Browser, etc.

Personally, I went with option 1 and bought a DS-X and did not flash my firmware.

The cheapest, easiest and safest would probably be the R4DS and not flash firmware. You can brick your DS with a bad flash. But, if you get one good flash in, you should be set, because all current hacked firmwares have a fallback in the 1st few bits. So, if anything ever goes wrong you can easily reflash without worrying about bricking.

Here is a chart of Slot-1 flashcarts:

I think you'll be very happy with your decision.

also note certain microsd cards have slowdown on certain games.

there is a thread a couple down with details.

im pretty sure the good 1gb sticks are on sale at meritline for about 11 shipped if you find you have the Taiwan made Kingston card.

i guess leds would look cool for the buttons, but other than that, just get an R4! biggrin.gif

and you can get R4's from ebay, not very cheap though!

I am deciding between SuperCard and R4DS. Which is better? Just wondering. Or is there one out there better than that?

I have an EZFlash V and the 3In1 Slot 2 adapter. I like it but the instructions were written very fluent in "engrish" so to speak.

or all of you guys can get the "Action Replay Music and Games" at your nearest walmart for 30$ US.. i got it for my little sister not relizing you can put NDS roms on it and play without firmware upgrading... there was no modding intensions i had just baught it so she can use her NDS as an mp3 player and i had a couple of NDS roms on my pc emulator so i thought i would try just for laughs and well it worked...

i got it for 30 but the site says 40$ actionreplay

p.s. it comes with a 256mb sdmicro but i have a gig so you can fit tons of movies music games pictures and roms and its never slow..

p.s.s. it also comes with video and music conversion software
