Does the DSTTi have a GBA 3 in 1 loader?

    I wanna play mother 3 without working with confusing loaders made by Rudolph that corrupt the save file.
    Does this flashcard allow to load gba games to PSRAM and NOR?
    Thanks in advance

    The DSTTi works just like the DSTT, so if you're using it with a DS or DS Lite, then you should be fine....though you still have to use some loader to transfer the ROM to NOR memory. I use GBAExploder to load to an EZFlashV 3 in 1 and Mother 3 works and saves great.

    Now keep in mind, if you plan on getting that DSTTi to use GBA games on a DSi, well.....now you're barking up the wrong tree.

    No, the DSTT/DSTTi menu system does NOT load GBA games directly to a slot 2 cart. You have to use YSMenu for that, and I don't know if YSMenu runs on the DSTTi.

    Note that the DSi won't support GBA games at all since there is no slot 2.

    No, see....you CAN select Mother 3 at the menu after you've written the game to NOR memory. However, you can't do that through the DSTT firmware.

    Remember, NOR is non-volatile memory. Once you have the game written to the cartridge, it's the same as having an actual GBA cartridge with the game on it. What you need to do is turn on your DS with the 3 in 1 inserted, but WITHOUT the DSTT card (so that the DSTT doesn't autoboot and go to the DSTT menu). With the game written to NOR, you run Mother 3 simply by selecting "Run GBA Game" in the official DS menu, just like you would do with any other GBA cartridge.

    My DSTTi runs YSMenu fine. In the DSTT firmware, you can go into bypass mode to go to slot2 if you want.
