    I have looked at quite a number of forums, but i cant seem to find any information on this.

    1. Has there ever been any hacks to obtain all Dsi Ware and share them like roms? Or running them using flash carts? Some of them are no longer available and it would be nice to be able to download them.

    2. Other than Guitar Hero DS, are there any retail carts that have GBA expansion and rely on them for gameplay? Another unique cartridge would be pokemon heartgold for its ability to communicate with the pokewalker using infrared.

    I think there was one card that used DSi mode, but it wasn't very well implemented or something like that. I don't recall exactly.

    Metroid Prime Pinball came with a rumble expansion, and a few other games supported it. The main one I recall was Super Princess Peach.

    DSiWare may now be supported on the 3DS, assuming you can get your hands on a .cia file and install it on your sysnand. However, you need the modified sysnand CFW to be able to install it and it would need to be clean in order to be run, and I'm not sure if clean DSiWare .cia files exist. It's very risky even if it does work, and presents a significant chance of bricking the 3DS.
    DSi-enhanced games were able to use additional DSi features using the CycloDS iEvo, but the card is dated and doesn't work on new firmwares and the support is bad, since WiFi doesn't work.
    The Nintendo DS web browser used a memory expansion pack, and the Guitar Hero games used a grip that added additional buttons. That's all I know though.

    The ewin rumble pack was better than the official Nintendo one, though I'm not sure if those are still sold anywhere. IIRC they weren't exactly easy to get back in the day. They were available in black and white, so you could match the early DS Lite colors. I'm also not sure if there was a version that would fit in the original DS.

    There was a GBA expansion cart for "Daigasso! Band Brothers" (大合奏!バンドブラザーズ) called "Daigasso! Band Brothers: Request Selection" which included 31 new songs for the game.
