    Seem simple...

    I have an NDS Lite, DSTWO and a 3in1. I want to have the GBA rom stored on the SD in the DS2. I want the rom to run "natively" (don't need the emulation features).

    Possible? If so, how?

    Yes, it is possible! I don't know how the DS2 interface works, so I can't give you much help on how to do it, but you can be damn sure it is possible!

    Can someone explain to me the biggest difference between EZ-Flash IV and EZ-Flash 3in1? They both do the same thing, just one is optimized for the DS Lite, right?

    The IV is meant to be a standalone cart and will run on it's own in a GBA.

    The 3-in-1 is meant to be a GBA-slot cart for a DS. It cannot swap or load new games on it's own (it needs a DS for that).

    But...why would you want to run the 3-in-1 when the DSTwo is fully capable of running GBA games?

    Because the DSTWO runs it like shit compared to... actually running the games.

    Because the DSTwo's GBA emulation is still nowhere near perfect.

    It's possible to direct boot your gba exploader 3in1 games if you use BAGplug on yer DStwo.
    You just need to set up an appropriate gba.arg for it.
