    Would it ever be possible for a homebrew that reads a normal GBA game from slot 2 and erasing the rom on it and then writing a GBA rom to it? (of course there will be restrictions with memory compatibility, but wouldn't it be a nice idea?)

    ROM means Read-Only Memory. [/thread]

    Read Only Memory

    You can't write over rom chips, that's what flash carts are for.

    Even if that would work, it still wouldn't be relevant to getting GBA on the DS!

    ...And this probably means you're not aware of ichichfly's GBA emu.

    Why not just buy a Supercard DS Two?

    It's called a slot-2 flash cart.

    Or more precisely, an EZ-Flash IV.

    ...

    *sigh*

    Buy a SCDSTWO or a Slot 2 cart, the only one available nowadays is the EZ Flash IV.

    The iSmart MMs GBA emu sucks in comparison, don't touch it. Don't even jokingly consider an EXi DS or whatever it's called.

    Yes, EZFlash 3in1 has worked for me for 2 years. Although it holds one game at a time, it's a powerful little bugger!

    You'd have more luck doing this with a calculator.

    IV > 3in1

    I can't possibly find anything that's better on the 3in1.
