    I recently purchased a Supercard Lite for dumping my own ROMs and want the option to boot it in DS mode (PASSME) without flashing my DS Lite with FlashMe. I've been able to do this in the past with other flash carts (for example, a CycloDS) but I can't find a way to do it in AKAIO. I've searched the forums and wiki and still haven't found out if it is possible.

    Yes, press B until you see the "MicroSD Card" and "GBA Game" options. Press L+A in the last one to boot the Slot-2 in NDS Mode.

    BTW, that is written in the AKAIO wiki (search the word passme):

    Try pressing L+A on the slot2 icon at the menu (NDS, GBA, shortcut) screen

    I was wondering this for myself. I'm very glad I looked in here. Now I know.

    To boot to a Supercard Lite, run the Slot2 version of Wood Dumper, and dump ROMs with complete headers.

    And not using FlashMe because the DSL is a Gold Zelda Triforce limited edition and I don't want to risk bricking it.

    i occasionally use it to launch my slot-2 MaxMediaDock (to dump games or test out MaxOverload updates).

    i also use the passme function to play the Heretic port i have flashed to the NOR of my 3in1 =)

    Wood Dumper? I've been using Rudolph's NDS Backup Tool.
    I need to look into that.

    Actually I do the exact same thing, passcard boot Supercard Lite into NDS mode, and use it to dump roms.
    But actually, I use an Action Replay DS as my passcard, hold select for three seconds and it'll boot Slot-2 in NDS mode!

    Rudolph's tools aren't trusted anymore for scene releases.

    I've got an Action Replay and have done that it the past, but the AR sticks out too far. I only use this DSL for dumping and beta testing and it is in a very slim case.
