    Readme clearly says to make 2 folders on the root of your SD card, GBA_SIGN and GBA_SAVE

    You need to dldi patch the GBA ExpLoader app with the proper dldi for your flashcart unless it auto patches.

    GBA Exploder automatically makes the folders GBA_SIGN and GBA_SAVE.
    And the R4 has auto dldi.

    You just need the ExpLoader, the two folders, and the GBA roms.

    Ill make a quick Basic TUT

    on your SD card make 3 folders i use.
    GBA_SIGN - This folder is where the 3in1 will store game data
    GBA_SAVE - This folder is where the 3in1 will store your game saves
    GBA Roms - This is where you put your GBA games

    I have GBA Exploader into the root of my SD for convinience

    ok now you have ur games ready and your gba_exploader, run gba_exploader from your DS

    1. you should have a blue color GUI and be able to search your folders to find your GBA roms now
    2. select your game and press A to run (all the options are given to you on the bottom screen)
    3. if you want to use your 3in1 cart to act as a normal GBA cartridge press the R button on your DS this will switch your screen from blue (PSRAM mode) to green (NOR mode) and L to go back to PSRAM mode.

    so you have 2 basic ram modes
    PSRAM will write to the 3in1 cart faster but will lose your rom when the DS powers off (wont lose your saves though)
    NOR will write a bit slower but after powering off your DS the game will stay loaded acting as a normal GBA cart

    Tried to keep this simple hope this helps

    hi there, I recently bought an ez 3 in 1, and I put a game in NOR. What I wanted to know is how can i make a backup of my savegame? Is it easy to restore the savegame even if I change the game in NOR???

    By using GBA ExpLoader in NOR mode, you can write the SRAM to a SAV file onto your Slot 1 card, as well as load a SAV file from the Slot 1 onto the SRAM.

    You just have to be careful not to mix them up as they are similarily worded.
