    First of all, I'm relatively new to this homebrew stuff, so don't expect me to be some sort of genius on this. Anyway, I saw that you could upload GBA ROMs and Saves from any GBA Game inserted into the Slot-2 Cart to your Slot-1 Cart. Well, if it works like this, would you be able to do it in reverse? As in get a ROM on your Slot-1 Cart and download it to any ole GBA Game, probably deleting the old ROM in the process? Eh, it's probably impossible or very stupid, but hey, you never know 'till you ask. And I'm asking this because I'm trying to find an alternative to getting a Slot-2 Flash Cart. If this doesn't work, I may as well get one, but I'm stuck using my DS Phat since my DS Lite's jacked up, and I don't think any Flash Carts fit in the DS Phat...

    Oh, and the reason I'm posting this in the CycloDS area is because I have CycloDS, and was wondering if there was an app Cyclo-compatable that could do this.

    A regular GBA cart uses write-once ROM, as in Read-Only Memory.
    Flashcarts use rewritable ROM, so they can be rewritten.

    Eh. I figured as much. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
