    I am planning to buy a ezflash 4 or 3in1 to run opera browser, to play some gba games perhaps and so i was wondering does the ezflash 4 lite compact and the 3in1 have any ram support and if there is, is there enough to run the opera browser, I also want to know if it is possible for it to run gba union for ex. pokemon migration for diamond and pearl.

    I use a 3in1 with my DSTT.
    Opera Browser works, heard you need some patching for it, but YSMenu doesn't need it.
    3in1 has RAM to run 16MB GBA games, if you want to run the 32 MB games, it has a NOR which takes forever to flash, but works.

    The Lite Compact is not something you want to buy for GBA support; it was designed as a cheap cart for playing DS games, and most of the GBA support was removed. In addition, it cannot be used as a RAM cart for the browser.

    As for the 3-in-1, yes to the RAM, yes to the GBA union working, and yes to the GBA union working for the Pokemon games (but only with patched Diamond/Pearls roms, not retail D/P game paks). Note that you need a DS and a slot 1 flashcart to use the 3-in-1, there is no other way to write games to it.

    256 megabits (32 megabytes - Mb means megabit, MB means megabyte) is the maximum size for GBA games. The 3-in-1 has 32 MB of NOR flash memory and 16MB of RAM. Any GBA game up to 16MB can be run from RAM; 32MB games can only be run from NOR.

    You use a program called GBA ExpLoader to actually run the GBA games from RAM or write them to NOR, and it works just fine with the SCDS1. GBA union and the pokemon crap works with the SCDS1 as well.
