    The only way to get the offical browser to work would be with the ram pack or a slot 1 card like a supercard i think.

    Cheapest way is to use homebrew or buy an EZ Flash 3-in-1 to be use as a RAM expansion so the Opera Browser can be used.

    Long story short, you need a slot1 AND a slot2 card for the Opera browser to work.

    The browser sucks to be honest but it does the job, just! Get a EZ 3in1 and your away, then you also get a rumblepak and GBA games. [​IMG]

    Yeah, the 3 in 1 is the one of the best and cheapest methods.

    DS Hobro is my favorite. The only thing is that your computer has to be turned on with the software running.

    DSOrganise is text-only, I couldn't get okiwi to work at all, and watching a page load in DS Hobro is like watching paint dry. The Opera browser is slow, but it's heaven after using DS Hobro.

    I paid AUD$20 for my 3-in-1, well worth it. The Supercard Lite has some RAM that works with Opera as well, but it seems slower, and the 3-in-1 has better GBA compatibility (and no need to hit a key combination to save the game), so I've found myself using it more often.

    One thing to watch if you use the 3-in-1 with the browser: the 3-in-1 can also be used to back up save games from retail DS carts, but if you do this, the RAM won't work with Opera until you re-flash the NOR on the 3-in-1 with a GBA game. I found that out the hard way. [​IMG]

    I always found DSHobro to be faster than the Opera browser.

    Just in case anyone needs to know:

    How to run the Internet browser with a slot-1 device (not the EZ Flash V*) and the 3-in-1.

    1) Patch the Browser with this
    2) stick it on the Micro SD Card and pop that in your slot-1 device.
    3) Boot up your slot-1 device and start up the Loader your using
    4) Switch to the Expansion Pack option on your loader
    5) That takes you back to the slot-1 device menu, select the .nds for the browser.



    *= If you have a EZ Flash V, it says in the Wiki you don't need to patch the browser.
