M3i zero sakura / M3i Zero DSi card review

Product: M3i Zero
Form factor: Slot 1
Web site:


The long awaited M3i Zero has landed. A card that has been hugely anticipated amongst the homebrew scene due to its feature set. Not only is the hardware completed upgradeable from the kernel,boot flash and firmware, but the OS supports the much trumpeted M3 Sakura. Once only available to the Japanese. Now translated for the western market.

Last December when I was reviewing the M3 Real, I commented on the power of the hacked triple loader OS. This gave the end user many options, enough to suit the various needs of any DS homebrew enthusiast. I'm please to see these comments have been taken on board by Team M3. The M3i is the first available retail card that supports a Dual Boot system as standard. You can switch between TouchPod and Sakura by simply pressing down the A button on boot.

Anyway, enough with the blarney. Let's see what's under the hood of the new M3i Zero.

What's Inside the Box.

The M3i Zero comes in a glossy dark blue retail box emblazoned with the M3 logo and url. The back of the box describes the feature set of the card and also includes a pictorial representation of the contents of the Box. The packaging size, shape and overall finish, is exactly like the previous M3 Real.

The contents of the package are contained in the normal clear plastic tray. These are as follows:- The M3i Zero card, which is housed in a plastic case with space for your MicroSD card. This is very much like the cases you get with memory cards such as Kingston/Sandisk, a tiny black/blue "Sandisk-esk" USB 2.o reader, emblazoned with a white M3 logo. Unfortunately the USB reader only shares the looks of the Sandisk reader and not the build quality. Its serviceable, but I would always recommend buying a decent "branded" reader if you want to steer clear of the dastardly blight, known as data corruption.

The final item in the box is the all important firmware power supply cable. This is an intriguing piece of kit. Unlike the Supercard DSONEi solution. The M3 team have gone for a completely different form factor in regards to powering the flash card via USB. Rather than the whole card sitting in a slot 1 adapter. They have gone for a much sleeker yet fragile design. At one end of the power cable is a rigid ribbon cable, much like the kind that connects the DS touchscreen to the motherboard. This inserts into the side of the M3i Zero card. Powering the card during the flash process.

Build quality.

The M3i Zero comes in a black shell. The grade of plastic feels on par with the Acekard 2.1. Its not quite on par with the previous M3 Real construction, which felt solid and hefty. The two parts of the shell are held together by a clip design and not the usual sealed/mini screws. There is a noticeable IC bulge on the label side of the card. The label itself is a glossy blue/white design with a yellow/white M3 Zero logo. The label had been placed squarely on the card.

The card's "copper teeth" are not protected by the usual raised fins. The PCB is green. The microSD slot is situated on the side of card. The spring has a fairly positive action and click. The populated card slot is flush with the top of the shell. Inserting the card into my DSi was no trouble. The IC bulge didn't cause any problems by scraping the sides of my well worn slot 1.

On the whole, I was happy with the general construction of the card. It's certainly not built like a tank but it's not crap R4 clone territory.


The M3i Zero ships as a blank card. Devoid of any firmware. Here's the blurb from the good M3 folks.

M3 product does not contain any copyright data or firmware program, though users may upgrade the software to make M3i Zero become the most powerful flash cart.

This is a very clever bit of chicanery by the M3 dewds. I presume this might aid the card's transit through some countries over zealous customs checks.

So in order to get the beast up and running, we have to flash the card's firmware with the included USB power cable. At first glance this looked like a tricky endeavour for somebody as cack handed as me. The rigid ribbon cable end of the power lead looks fragile due to its wafer thin design. But alas my fears were allayed, as it was pretty easy to insert the power cable into the side of the card. Following the readme instructions, I copied the latest system software to the root of my freshly formatted memory card, along with the firmware dat file. I then attached the power cable to my PC's USB hub. Immediately a red led started flashing within the M3i Zero's card housing. After 10-15 seconds, the led stopped and I unhooked all the various cable from the card. I hurriedly popped the card into my DSi and fired the blighter up. Hey Presto! I was greeted by a M3 logo on the menu screen. Sweet! A painless installation.

I did the patented fire up the card without any Micro SD card test and the old delete a few system files test. The M3i Zero passed with flying colours, displaying the right error codes for each test.


During this section of the review I am going to focus on the Sakura OS. A detailed overview of the TouchPod OS and its homebrew capabilities can be found in my previous review of the M3 Real.

When you first boot up the M3i Zero you are confronted by the new dual boot menu. Offering you the choice between the old Touch Pod OS and the new Snazzy M3 Sakura software. You can either use the touch screen or dpad+ A button, to select your option.
M3 Sakura executes a disk check of your memory card to make sure all is well on first boot. On my 4gig card this took only a few seconds. Next we are greeted with startup settings menu.

The first option is the language setting, choose from the following:- English, Deutsch, Espanol, Dutch, Francais, Italiano, Protugues
and Russian!!

Next up is the Line mode which enables either 1 or 2 line support for long file names. I went for the 1 line option as its looks slicker and enables more files per screen. Great, if your memory card is chocka block with loads of apps/games.

Lastly, you have three check boxes which are fairly self explanatory.

1.Always run DiskCheck on boot.[on/off]

2.Enable sound effects [on/off]

3. Don't show this screen[startup settings] next time.

Once you have sorted your config, you click the "OK' box to confirm all your choices and then you are dumped to the main file browser of M3 sakura. The good thing is that you don't need any manual to get going. The top screen immediately displays all the various button combos, to aid your navigation of the GUI.

The first thing that hits you once you start playing around with Sakura, is how silky smooth the scrolling is. The default skin has a fantastic yet stylish simplicity. It really puts other flash card GUI's in the shade. Anybody that has used the Moonshell 2 multimedia application, will feel right at home. File browsing uses both screens to display your folders and files. To run a binary, either slide stylus to the right over the file name or press the A button. Slide left or press the Y button to enter the settings menu for the highlighted file. You can navigate through nested folders using the same touch n slide actions. Its all very well thought out and intuitive.

Unlike some other GUI's that I have tested, I encountered no file sort issues and or locks up due to max files fresholds on the card root. Even with a 4gig card full of homebrew, the OS performance was a pleasure to use.

System Menu.

Pressing the Start button brings up the system menu. Here you can change the following options.

1/2 line mode toggle.[ This changes between big/small icons/text for files. 1 line mode displays 11 files/folders per screen. that's 22 in total. 2 line mode displays 6 large icons and also allows for large file names to "wordwrap" to the second line.

GUI Settings

This option brings up a raft of control settings tick boxes to tweak the interface to your own taste.

Don't show Initial Setup on boot

Always run DiskCheck when booting

Enable sound effects.

Enable fade transition effect

Start Sakura from Recent Files list

Lock folder navigation. This is a very useful feature if you have kids and want them only to use apps/games in a specific folder. Navigate to the folder you want to use and then enable this option. Reboot and Sakura will start up in that folder. A beep will sound if you press B or touch the folder navigation button. Obviously this feature can be disabled using the start button but for small children it might cure some of the "you just reset my high score save" arguments.

Hide filename extensions

Hide unsupported files

Use dark background screen saver

Enable FastStart movie playback

Lock L/R during music playback

Restore default wallpaper

Language settings
English, Deutsch, Espanol, Dutch, Francais, Italiano, Protugues
and Russian!!

Save file restore menu [only when a game is highlighted]

Recent Files List

Pressing select brings up the recent files list. As Stu would say, the clue is in the title. This shows the last 5 apps or games you have run on the card. This is a great time saver, if your card is awash with many nested folders and files. There is also a separate tab called accessories, which has a couple of preloaded applications. These are CheckDisk and Morning Timer. A further 3 apps can be added to this tab by manually installing .nds binaries to the SYSTEM\m3sakura\launch\ folder.


All the following Multimedia function can be accessed right from the file browser. You don't have the load a separate app in order to read an ebook, watch a film or listen to some music. With past versions of flash cards built on the moonshell 1 code base, this has added greatly to an increased initial boot time. Not so with Sakura, which is built upon the new moonshell 2 code. The boot up time was pretty satisfactory even on a heavily fragmented 4gig card.

Movie Player.

The M3i Zero supports the moonshell DPG movie format. I threw a few different sized movie clips at the player and they all worked as expected. By pressing the select button you can cycle through the viewing modes[top screen,bottom screen, both screens and both screens with the top screen rotated 180 degrees. The default is both screens. All the rest of the controls function much like moonshell 2. By tapping the bottom screen you access the video transport GUI. Clicking the movie strip icon in the lower left displays a detailed description of the DPG including encoding info and frame rate etc.

Music Player.

Native mp3 support comes as standard. Its as easy as navigating to your file and pressing A to play your tunes. Alternatively you can double tap with the stylus. A Mini music control bar can be displayed by sliding the stylus left over the file or by using the L+dpad left. You can then navigate out of the folder and still have control over your music by tapping on the previous/next track/pause/play/repeat mode icons. Embedded ID3 tag info is displayed on the top screen.

Text viewer.

Pressing select whist viewing a .txt file brings up the display mode menu where you can tweak the following settings

enable dual-screen mode
use dark background screen saver
font size [small, medium, large]
code page [cp437, cp850, cp1252]
Auto-Detect Encoding
Japanese S-JIS
UTF-16 Big Endian
UTF-16 Little Endian

Pressing X brings up the save bookmark menu where you can store upto 4 save points. Very handy if you have snaffled a rather large RPG FAQ document off the tubes. Pressing Y brings up the bookmark load menu screen.

Image viewing.

The basic controls are shown on the top screen. You can zoom to 50%,200% and 100% by using Y,X and A buttons, or by tapping on the zoom icon in the lower left hand corner of the bottom screen.
Pressing select or tapping on the lower right icon, brings up the image display mode settings menu, where you can faff around with the following options,

Show file info and help
Show zoom/control icons
Increase button sensitivity
Increase touch screen sensitivity
Remember zoom
Auto-fit large JPEGs.

The next three settings alter the wallpaper image feature. This is a simple way of personalising the GUI for people without photoshop/skinning skills.

Account for gap between screens
Apply transparency to top screen
Apply transparency to bottom screen

Pressing the start converts the current image to the GUI wallpaper/background image. This is made all the more impressive by the fact that the current zoomed area shown on the bottom screen is captured. Auto cropping the original picture. This is great if you have a huge JPEG image and want to use only a portion of the photo.

Game Features.

Much like the M3 real, the M3i Zero has a good suite of features that many gamers crave. The Sakura OS performs exactly like the dual boot alternative TouchPod OS.

Game file settings menu can be accessed by sliding the stylus left over the highlighted game or by pressing the Y button. You now have quite a few options including; soft reset, cheats, real time save and download play. By the side of each option, the hotkey combo is displayed. This a great idea, no more checking readme.txt or web site FAQ's. Not only do you get a hotkey but you get a choice of two key configs. This is handy if the game you are playing might clash with a particular set. Very cool. The cheat option not uses in the firmware database but also supports individual cheat files. These can be xml, cht, dht or dat-R4 formats.

The real time save option works exactly like the M3 real. You get 3 RTS slots per game. The menu is clear and easy to navigate. Saving/loading take about 4 seconds and progress is shown by a percentage scale in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. The save states are roughly 4.9megs in size.

Game save file support can be accessed by highlighting the game and pressing the start button and selecting the save file restore menu. This works in much the same way as MS Windows system restore. Each save file can have upto 8 slots which are time stamped. To restore to a previous save, highlight the appropriate date/time file and press L+A button combo. Very slick.

I tried all the various game options on a number of titles. They all worked as intended. Performance was on par with the M3 Real. Loading times were quick and the RTS performed solidly.

Skin Support.

All Sakura skins use the .skn format. This is a single file pakage. This is a very tidy solution when dealing with the many image files that make up a complete skin. To change the GUI skin/theme is simplicity itself. Simply click on the filename.skn and the theme is instantly loaded. You can swap and change them on the fly, till you find one that's your cup of tea. If you would like to create your own there are a couple of applications to make the process easier.

Homebrew Testing.

Just like many of the recent cards I have reviewed, the M3i Zero has built in AUTO-DLDI patching.

Test system

DSi Console [1.3j firmware]
M3i Zero Slot 1 card
M3 Sakura v1.40 x08[Euro/USA] with bundled TouchPod v4.3f
F_Core.dat 08/07.09

M3 MicroSD USB reader
Kingston [Japan] 4gig class 4 MicroSDHC
Sandisk 2gig MicroSD
Kingston [Japan] 1gig MicroSD

Due to the dual-boot OS feature I have only tested a select few homebrew apps/games using M3 Sakura. Touch Pod can already run vast array of titles and these can be found in my previous review of the M3 Real

All the following work and boot up. Obviously there are some apps/games I have tested more rigorously than others.

Rise of the Triad
Still alive
Word up
Pocket Physics

Whilst testing my favourite homebrews, I noticed a number of corrupted icons for old palib games and even cquake. This didn't affect them running as normal but looked garish and out of place, within the very snazzy looking Sakura interface.

Useful links.

M3Sakura Ver1.40 X Europe/USA Version


Dual Boot OS
Official Sakura Support
Fantastic hardcore gaming functionality
Superb multimedia functionality
Updatable kernel, boot flash and firmware
Decent hardware quality
SDHC support
Glossy label
Good homebrew compatibility


No basic file management[cut/copy/paste/delete] in Sakura OS
No software/documentation included in package.
Not 100% homebrew compatible
Poor official web site design
Offsite OS downloads


Team M3 seemed to have acted on my comments regarding the M3 Real and introduced them to the M3i Zero. They have brought the superb Sakura GUI to the western market. Not only that, but they had also introduced the first official dual boot system for any flash card. This adds to the power of the device by maintaining good compatibility whilst pushing ahead with the Sakura codebase through software updates. The ability to update the kernel, boot flash and firmware only adds to the mix. This increases the longevity of the card.

The M3i Zero offers the best suite of features, both in hardware/software, currently available for any homebrew enthusiast. This card is now my current weapon of choice for the DSi. This is the best endorsement I can give any DS flash card.

Why You Need an R4i (R4i DSi) Card ?

Why You Need an R4i (R4 DSi) Card

The Nintendo DSi surpassed all expectations and is the fastest selling handheld console of all time. It has a number of nifty features that aren’t found in the previous versions, but unfortunately it still lacks some features that you might have expected like the ability to run homebrew games through the SD card reader. This is why you need an R4 DSi. The R4 for DSi is cleverly named the R4i.

The R4DSi is a cartridge that is roughly the same size as a standard cartridge for the DSi. The cartridge has a small slot where you can insert a MicroSD card which is required to take advantage of many of its features. Nothing is installed or modified in the Nintendo DSi so it is completely safe to use and all the action is done within the cartridge.

Enhance Your experience with an DSi R4

If you’ve had the luxury of playing video games on the latest Nintendo console, you may want to enhance your experience with an R4 DSi. We’ll go into details momentarily, but first it’s important to understand how you can change the way you use that hand held console of yours. To be frank, with an R4 for DSi you’ll have the opportunity to transform it into a high-tech device.

Playing Homebrew Games with an R4i

With the R4NDSi you can play free homebrew games .There are so many great homebrew games that people simply aren’t aware of. They can be played on any variation of the DS. Even if you’re experienced with DS homebrew, you’ll probably find a few you’ve missed in the chart.

MP3 Players

Annoyingly for many the console won’t let you play every type of audio file. With an R4 NDSi that’s no longer a problem. We’ve always thought that music can change a person’s personality in just a few minutes, and this cartridge does the trick. If you have a set of tiny headphones you can change your console into an instant music player that you can take on your next run. Whatever the case may be you have to realize you’re not just going to be able to get a few titles, but hundreds on your R4DSi.

The Internet

Many once simple devices are now capable of doing many of the tasks once reserved for home PCs. With an R4 DSi you will find yourself with the ability to use the Internet just as you would at home or in a library. This means when you need to keep up with MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter, you can scan them throughout the day with your R4i wherever you are at that time. Plus, college students are finding the R4i very useful (they can pretend they are researching topics on the Internet while really just playing games).

Other Options Available

We don’t want to spoil all the excitement of the R4 DSi, but there several different ways you can use the two of these together to make one great product. Whether it be for school, work, or play, just having the opportunity at your fingertips with an R4i is a great benefit. Other options available are anything from a Word Processor or video player, to even using it as a mobile phone.

So the next time you take out your DSi R4DS have a look online for some of the free to download homebrew applications available.

An R4 DSi is the Answer

An R4 DSi is the answer many people have been looking for, for a long time. The reason you need this device is because it is much cheaper than you would pay for an original DS game, and it lets your Nintendo DSi do some amazing things! Some of these include that it can be used as a Web Browser, PDA, MP3 Player, Word Processor and Video Player. Last but not least, with the R4NDSi you can play free homebrew games too.

There is one thing though that you will have to be careful of, and that is fake R4i . Many people have come across R4 NDSi but they do not perform as they should, which means they are not the original ones and you have probably been scammed. Be sure of your source when you are looking into investing in something like this, because it is very easy to be given something that looks the same but doesn’t perform the same. We suggest you buy the r4i card from some reliant store : r4 is a good choice-- 100% tested , 100% work ,100% true cards ,6 Month warranty time

Nintendo DS games are sometimes difficult to keep track of, especially if the kids have had a hold of them. Have you ever had a time when all you feel like doing is relaxing and playing your favourite game, only to be looking for it for an hour? Then once you find it you really don’t feel like playing any more… or what about when the dog has gotten hold of your favourite game? The list of things that go wrong with Nintendo games is almost endless! With the DSi R4, which is a SD memory card(2GB to 32GB), you can save all your games and you only have one item to look after and keep away from dogs and kids!

An R4 DSi is a great invest for any gaming family to have. Even if you don’t play games as often as others do, it is nice to know that you have all your games safe and sound for that rainy day when you feel like doing nothing but sitting under a blanket and playing games on your Nintendo. Or the kids Nintendo…

R4 SDHC / R4i SDHC VS other R4 Cards

The R4-SDHC and R4i-SDHC are a multifunctional upgrade from the original R4 flash cart, which has enjoyed a great reputation in the global market. It not only has the functions of the original R4, but also has increased capabilities, such as support for the SDHC card. Check the following table for a comparison between the R4 and R4-SDHC.

Other R4 versions
R4/R4i-SDHC of Games-Engine
Core Upgrading Tedious Steps Through Computer Through Wi-Fi Automatically
Game Searching Tedious Steps Through Computer Through Wi-Fi Automatically
Game Download Tedious Steps Through Computer Through Wi-Fi Automatically
Game Management Tedious Steps Through Computer Through Wi-Fi Automatically
Intelligence Unable to recognise or display SD type, capacity or format. Able to recognise and display SD type, capacity and format.
Power Saving No power saving function, more wastage With sleeping mode function, to extend standby time.
Operation Interface With inflexible operation interface. Multi-language setting, simple and easy-operated interface.
Storage Capacity No SDHC support, storage capacity capped at 2GB. Require a high-speed card to function properly. Supports up to 32GB of storage capacity with SDHC cards with enhanced performance even on slower cards.
Compatibility of the game The Support for R4 card is terminated as the team has been dismissed. games released after that is like to be problematic. A capable R4i team commit themselves to the website maintenance and kernel updates, R4-SDHC & R4i-SDHC cards are compatible to all NDS games.
Flexibility The option is set for all game. You can't set option for single one. R4-SDHC&R4i-SDHC supports cheatcode and soft-reset setting on a per-game basis, avoiding possible conflicts.
Cheat code The cheatcode mechanism of R4 was proved to be hard to use for, to the point that prevented many users to use the function properly. The new UI is designed to be easy to use, ensuring smooth gaming experience even for new users.
Multimedia engine The built-in Moohshell 1.61 lacks the new decoding engine present in the newer versions that provides faster decoding and clearer video. It is also more buggy. With the latest Moonshell 2.0 built in the card, R4-SDHC&R4i-SDHC delivers a better multimedia experience with higher decoding performance and better picture quality.
Card Mould The less accurate manufacturing process of the R4 makes it doesn't fit well with the SLOT-1. Sometimes it can cause freeze and other reliability problems. The improved manufacturing process of R4-SDHC&R4i-SDHC ensures a minimal error in size and shape. The card thickness and area of gold-finger is specifically controlled with a error range of less than 0.1mm compared to an original NDS game card.

R4 DS and R4's clones

The original R4DS had an enormous success in 2007 and 2008, it was by far the most popular card at this time. In mid 2008, the original R4DS Team stopped production. However, many manufacturer are now using the name "R4" to sell their product,which one is better ?here,we give you a brief review.hope to help you when choosing R4 cards. (firstly ,please forgive my bad English .hehe ~)

R4 DS is the oldest cards in the market. it just t is compatible with the nitendo ds, not work on a DSi or DSi XL.The original R4 and it's clones are limited to using MicroSD cards with a maximum capacity of 2GB, MicroSDHC cards are not supported. There are many "fake" R4 DS Card around, and we recomend the r4ds (by to you , it's also called R4 0815 in china . the cards was considered as the original R4 DS.

R4i Gold(

The R4i Gold is one of the most popular but far from the best of the so-called "R4 clones". It is compatible with the DS, DSi, and the DSi XL. The R4i Gold proved extremely popular in America and Europe in late 2009 and early 2010 due to its support for the new DSi v1.4 firmware and its excellent game compatibility.(if my memory doesn't go wrong, I think this is the first card supported DSi V1.4) . Unlike most other card, it didn't needed any manipulation (manual update of the card's firmware) by the user to run on DSi v1.4 firmware.

Due to the factory focus on the quality first , the R4i Gold's quality is stable .the Return & RepareRate is lower than other r4 flash cards . But the price is also stable , The cost keep the same price for a long time (should be a half years , hehe ~) . Actually , the cost of R4 DS is the best expensive among R4 cards .
