    It looks like I'm stuck! I recently bought a Cyclo and 3in1 flash from Dealwoot. I upgraded the firmware to 1.51 before doing anything else. I am able to play NDS games fine. Though the Cyclo does not recognize the 3in1 for rumble support, opera browser support, or to play GBA games.

    After combing the forums, I tried a few things...Such as

    Re-installing the firmware
    Checking to make sure the config file was set to support GBA games
    Re-formatting the micro card

    I tried GBA xploder (latest version) and I am able to play GBA games no problem. I have only tried in PSRAM though.

    Would that tell me that my 3in1 is okay? If so where would I start Cyclo card?

    Thanks in advance for everyone's help!!!

    maybe the connection from the 3 in 1 to your ds?
    trying blowing on the slot 2 place (and then on the 3 in 1)
    sounds weird, but maybe theres too much dust buildup?

    hmmm.... I tried that, hoping that it would do the trick, but no luck. I tried the Cyclo and 3in1 in another DS as well with the same result. I also just to make sure, tried an actual GBA cartridge in that slot and the game played fine.

    Also the 3in1 seems to be working to some degree as GBA EXploder uses it fine and recognizes when it It's missing...

    Any ideas?

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    update your cyclo firmware.

    Isn't 1.51 the latest? It was downloaded from the site this afternoon. I've tried reformatting the card, putting the 1.51 update on the micro card and updating the firmware again from scratch.

    A couple more things tried....

    Using Exploder I flashed a game to NOR and reset the DS to see if Cyclo would recognize the 3 in 1... still no luck.

    Reverted back to firmware version 1.41 (which is what came loaded on the card when bought) enabled GBA support (still no luck) and then updated to 1.51...

    There must be something I'm missing... the 3 in 1 works fine with GBA exploder! UGH!

    How new is your 3 in 1? I think EZFlash updated their source code to support a new hardware version earlier in December, but CycloDS firmware hasn't been updated since November. Maybe you have a new version that's not supported by the CycloDS yet.

    Good to hear I am not the only one!
    @DeMoN
    I can indeed see the GBA roms and when I go to click it gives me a "compatible slot 2 device was not found" message...

    I didn't notice the GBA Exploder identified the 3 in 1 until you brought it labels it as the PLUS for me as well... which makes sense now


    I wonder as well if the source code update works with the CycloDS...

    Just to add another confirmation message to this thread. I also bought an EZFlash V 3 in 1 from DW that shows up as a "3in1Pls" in GBA Exploader. Like everyone else, my Cyclo DS Evo with firmware 1.51 doesn't recognize the 3 in 1--not for games or rumble support.

    Hope someone fixes this soon....

    I got a new ezflash 3-1 from dealextreme and it indeed isn't working with the cycloDS interface in either rumble or the web browser.

    After some digging I found this version of Exploader that indeed works with my 3-1 for games......both psram and NOR are working for me.

    What the? How did you manage to contact Team Cyclops? I thought all emails to their tech support bounced. Good to see they are still working.

    You do realise 1.51 is newer than 1.5b4 right?

    yes, but if the 1.51 isn't working why try not a previous firmware that worked fine?
