This has star-winning features such as DS support for download play and DLDI auto patching that made it deserving of a golden star as awarded by GBAtemp.net. Due to these features, this storage device rose to popularity and is priced more at a premium over others.

As one of the latest storage devices produced, it is a second generation storage device and it is dependent on microSD cards to hold some files that could be played on the modified Moonshell media player. It has made some historic steps of its own by being in the forefront of using SHDC cards with memory capacities between 4GB to 32GB. The good thing is that the package of CycloDS already includes a USB microSD writer/reader that is already compatible with SHDC. Thus, you do not necessarily have to switch devices if you want the SHDC compatible ones. As an innovator, CycloDS also has an “Enhanced Mode” that gives way to an in-game menu that activates features such as soft reset to CycloDS GUI, slow motion, cheat device, brightness adjustment for the LCD backlight, save feature, and text reader for game walkthroughs.
The CycloDS iEvolution is flexible in that it can also function as a SLOT-2 device and a pass-me one as well evident in expansion packs of the card in the form of the G6 Lite or the 3-in-1 extension. These expansion packs make the players who use DSLinux play with an extended memory and to play Game Boy Advance games from Opera Web Browser and SLOT-1 device. Instead of normally using RAM expansion pack, the expansion packs of CycloDS iEvolution are already enough. Moreover, the card has an ability to patch GBA games from the CycloDS menu without having to use any homebrew program.
