    M3 DS Real Perfect Bundle (DS + GBA + RAM + Rumble) Link

    So, is that a good card and with it will I be able to run NDS roms and GBA/GB roms as well as homebrew for both? I have tried to look around elsewhere for answers but it kind of hard to find them.

    Yep!

    Have a look around for the best price you can though.

    You can either use goomba for GB emulation using slot-2 or lameboy0.9 for GB emulation with slot-1.

    Yes, it is perfect. Only thing is gameboy isn't great but nds/gba should work about 100% and most popular homebrew should work

    Yeah, DS and GBA compatibly should be (very near by) 100%. The older Gameboy systems need to be emulated though, but with Lameboy that isn't much of a problem (it runs everything I want to run).

    If you want better GB support you will need another flashcart anyway, so M3 Real is the way to go!

    ahh thank you guys for the fast replys. but for DS and GBA games though, its just a matter of putting them onto the microsd card and playing them?

    Also, would somebody mind pointing me towards a walk through or anything dealing with this product..

    Or maybe you could just explain the point of the two gba carts for me. lol

    You need to put the latest firmware for the M3 onto the sd card.

    Then place the ROMS onto your card (Mine are in ./root/games)

    One slot 2 is a rumble pack.

    The other is RAM expansion and for GBA.
