    Hello c:
    This is my first time posting so I don't know if I'm doing it right :P
    my friend just gave me a GBA SP with a couple of games and a small case that could only fit the GBA SP. So, it is pretty hard for me to carry all of the stuff around. Then I stumbled across something called a Flash Cartridge! it was the thing I needed! but it was also the thing I couldn't get :C I spent many MANY hours trying to find the right one but I just can't! I read about the EZ-Flash IV, the Supercard, and the M3 Perfect and I searched for all of them but couldn't find any (except for the SuperCard but I read that it slows down a lot)
    Thus I come to you guys. My last resort! where can I find a decent flash cart nowadays? (preferably one that has 1 or 2 GB of space)

    you still need a DSL to write games to the NOR on the 3in1 before you can use it on a GBA/SP/micro.

    I see that you live in the US, you might want to buy from here instead http://www.realhotstuff.com/EZ-Flash-3-in-1-Expansion-Pack_p_15.html
    ships from new jersey so it wont take 3 weeks to get it like the hk site

    and you will need a dsl (or ds if you do the full size case mod) to flash the initial rom

    The 3in1 is a slot1 dependent flashcart. It has no loader and runs only 1 game at a time.

    Only AFTER you write a game to the NOR.

    aww!
    well in that case, is there any other carts that I could buy that don't require a DS/DSL?

    You can probably find something here but your going to be paying like 20+ bucks for shipping since it is coming from the EU.

    That's a M3 Perfect, it's only for playing DS games.
