    I been wondering about this for a while now.

    Is it possible to run NDS-Roms in a compressed State on the M3i Zero Flashcart?

    i mean, simply compressing the file to a zip or rar, would that be possible?

    could save me a lot of precious microSD-space.

    Pretty sure no cart supports that. Let alone have the power to support that. You can trim your roms to save space.

    Grab a nds rom trimmer. I use NDSTokyoTrim. Put your roms in a folder and trim them all. [​IMG] I haven't have any side effects so far.

    I just tried it.

    The Difference in Size is quite amazing, actually.

    And it did detect Wifi-programs..... but what does it do when it detects them?

    does it stop trimming them or will it simply trim it, but keep wifi enabled?

    i heard the wifi-date is usually stored at the end of the ROM and the trimmers sometimes cut it off.

    Also remember never to trim patched roms because:

    1. They get trimmed when they are patched

    2. If a patched rom gets trimmed it pretty much gets trimmed all the way down to 0mb's
