This could have probably gone in the other thread but what the hey. Here is a quote from a post by Windirt (the EZTeam rep on the US forums: http://www.sosuke.com/ezflash/viewtopic.php?t=3117 ), inbetween the marketing speak there seems to be some interesting info. Personally I still believe slot 1 is not necessarily the way forward but to each their own I guess. Players have been using GBA cards to play NDS games for a long time. From CF card to microSD card, it seems there are plenty of choices available. But virtually they are all based on an immature technology and they are only a compromise solution. Not only the flashing your DS to gain booting support, but also frequent software upgrades are needed to mend the ROM for supporting new games. Those are nightmare to players who just want to focus on games and all of these inconvenience are caused by the imperfect technology. The nightmare is becoming history now. "Flashme, Passme, Convert" will fade away from player's life. Because a real mature SLOT-1 solution is provide by EZTEAM. EZ-FLASH V, a product using the mature SLOT-1 technology, no need "Flashme, Passme,Convert" anymore. You can focus on playing game without worrying anything.
