    This is not a problem, just a thing I noticed.
    When I dont put anything in the slot1 ( so there's no cart inserted in slot1) , and I boot my DS with the EZ4 in the slot2, I can just pick Start GBA game and my EZ4 starts working.
    Even when I inserted a legal game in the slot1, and booted my DS, I could just pick start GBA game, and my EZ4 worked...
    I dont think thats normal, shouldn't there be a Passcard or something?

    I have a white DS Lite unflashed.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    Are you sure it's unflashed?

    Did you buy it new, or second-hand?

    Did you buy it from a big store, or a small place?

    I'm sure.

    New

    Biggest gaming store in Belgium

    I remember I bought it a few days since the Europe release, so its probably the first batch of DS Lites for Europe.

    Um, yeah, when you press "Start GBA game" it will start your EZ4 in GBA mode.

    are you sure it's running in DS mode, it could just be running in gba mode, does the health warning screen not show up on booting, does it skip the menu when slot2 is inserted and does it use both screen without passcard, if answer is yes to one of those then it's proly just got flashme on it

    EDIT: dammit you both beat me to it

    you only need a passme card if your trying to run NDS games, otherwise you just got a gameboy cart.
