    Hi all...

    I'm new to all this flashing and modding stuff. I would like to flash my DS Lite, but after reading about the different versions of the "By-Passing Cards" I'm a bit confused. .

    I purchased a DS Lite today with the following equipment.

    * - Super Card Lite (not the rumble version)
    * - Pass We 3 (as reviewed on this site here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=36383)
    * - 1gig MicroSD Card

    If I was to download the "FlashMe" software what else would I need to do the upgrade? Or is what I have just fine to do it with?

    I do have a backup card for my "Retro GameBoy Advance" which is pictured below.

    Can I use this to store the file on and flash the DS? Or can it be the Super Card Lite I bought today?

    Thanks
    Ric

    I'll actually hijack this thread to use as my question...

    So, you have to have a superkey/passme device to flash... and flashing... removes the need for a superkey/passme.... so, for those of us WITHOUT a key already... either way we gotta buy one? D:


    EDIT: Yeah, i think thats how it works :>

    Yes, unless someone lets you borrow a passme device.

    You have to buy a passme device to flash the DS at first yes. But you could always borrow one or flash a few of your mates DSs for a small charge to make back the money you paid for the passme. I know some places will install the flashme for you, and charge about $10.
