    I have a phat DS flashed with flashme. Is there anyway to stop the R4 auto booting into its menu when the DS is powered up? I want to be able to play GBA games without having to remove the R4.

    Or, you can have your DS flashed. [​IMG]
    Mine is, so my DS boots on slot-2 by default... I hold select while turning on the DS to boot to my R4 (slot-1 device) [​IMG]

    My DS is flashed but it still boots to the R4, I flashed it ages ago when I first got a SC CF. When you say it boots to slot-2 do you mean for a slot 2 NDS based card like SC or GBA carts? Its original GBA carts I want to boot, not a slot 2 flash cart.

    Umm... isn't that what the third icon on the far right that I never use is for?

    i thought it goes to the normal DS menu when you hold down the A button during startup?

    you can't stop it from booting [​IMG]

    however you can use Simple GBA Mode Switcher to make r4 boot the gba cart.

    Nope, that starts the slot 2 cart in DS mode only. If you have a GBA flashcart or an actual GBA game in slot 2 it won't start.
