    Unfortunately I don't have the equipment to test that out khan. But the EZ Team tell me that the Expansion Pack is only supported by the EZ-Flash V. They will make tools and code available that will allow other carts to take advantage of it however (inlcuding homebrew, which is something to be very excited about).

    All official rumble supported games that I've tried work perfectly fine. They don't need patching at all. The rumble pack is a little loud like the original rumble pack but it gives off a nice vibration. You have three different rumble strengths to choose from, Low, Medium and Hard. You can select the strength by pressing L+R in the EZ-V loader.

    I think all your questions will be answered in the upcoming review.

    I'm really excited about this product. I think I'll probably finally go slot-1 with this unless the review is abysmal.

    The opera browser doesn't need to be patched but I'll test that out a little later. It's rather late at night here so I might not be online much longer, you'll have to wait till I add it to me EZ-Flash V review.

    Early impression are extremely positive. I have a white DS Lite as you can see by the pics but I don't mind too much that the expansion pack only comes in black. It looks fine.

    The build quality is great, very sturdy. It sticks out of the slot ever so slightly, just a tiny little bit which you can hardly notice. I'm very happy with the product, I'll test it some more tomorrow.

    Awesome cant wait, and this does look like its a different paint coating then the eziv and it also looks like it fits alot flusher instead of 'rocking' in the gba slot like the eziv. Cant wait for the review! [​IMG]

    I believe the EZTeam will be selling the bundle packs any day now. You will only be able to get the Expansion Pack if you buy the bundle pack which includes the EZ-Flash V.

    For those of you who already have an EZ-Flash V but want an Expansion Pack talk to your retailer about it, they should be able to sell you the pack separately.

    So how does playing GBA roms work?

    Do they have to be put on the EZ-V's Memory or do you have to put it in the 3-in1 expension pack itselfe?

    So, do any stores have this in stock? All stores I see have the EZ-V in stock but not the 3 in 1 expansion pack bundle. Will it add to the cost of the EZ-V? I'm pretty sure that many stores don't even know what it is.

    GBA roms work perfectly too.

    You must copy the GBA roms to your micro sd card with the EZ4 Client (you need to patch them).

    Then you must write the rom from the ez-v to the expansion cart by pressing R+Select and you can launch it via R+A. The rom stays on the expansion cart until you write a different rom to it.

    There is 256mbit of space to play with. Writing the rom takes about 30 seconds, which may vary due to the size of some games.

    So far the expansion pack seems like the ultimate slot-2 device.

    i still have a ds phat so i need a non ds light sized cart, any word on if they are going to offer that option, or if they might have a gba sized cart that you could place it in, i believe M3 did something like that, you could take the components out of the ds light cart and put them into a gba cart. i think that option is always a neat idea.

    You burn it to the expansion's NOR RAM using the EZ-V.
