    Is there any way to get the G6 to boot the GBA on the bottom screen?
    I can't seem to find any settings to change it

    you MUST set your actual DS unit to load from the touch screen (through NDS settings)

    prefer the bottom screen, eh?

    is your ds flashed? then keep holding select while booting up and then choosing gba slot in the ds main menu.

    Don't do it that way. To get it onto the bottom screen, start up your DS, and select "GBA Cartridge" instead of going into "NDS Cartridge" and pressing Y. That should work for you. Besides, it's easier as well...

    Yes. It's in the Options menu in the Settings. You go to the top option to change the Start-up of the DS and set it to manual mode.

    i assume this is the Ds settings, as the R4 doesnt have a settings menu

    yes it is in the DS settings

    DONT HAVE YOUR R4 inside the unit when you are using the g6

    The solution is there... take it or leave it.

    You can try the GBA Slot 1 switcher.

    I also want to play GBA games on the bottom screen, so I take out my passcard, turn de DS on and then select GBA cartridge in the DS menu, result: the bottom screen is in use

    If this is not sufficient, why not try hex editing values in the firmware files? Not knowing how to is not a reason, get your hands dirty if you really want this ability.
