    I got my EZ Flash 3in1 GBA Expansion Pack(GBA Size), a couple of weeks ago, and mostly like everyone else I had to use GBA Exploader V5.7 instead of V5.8. But what GBA expansion pack OFFICIALY works so you can play GBA games directly from the iTouch menu? [​IMG]

    Yes it works with the GBA Expansion Pack. Not to be rude but, iTouchDS and M3 DS REAL are made by the same company.

    *sigh*...ok, let me start over...you know that message that says"No slot-2 GBA card found" when you try to boot a GBA game?, what GBA pack works with it so it won't say "No slot-2 GBA card found"? or are you talking about the M3 DS real GBA Expansion Pack?? and i already know m3ds and iTouchds are made by the same company.

    you need .58B, or more specifically the modified version to work on M3 slot-1 carts.

    It is SPELLED OUT FOR YOU in the first post half way down here:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=130659

    KEEP READING IT OVER AND OVER UNTIL IT SINKS IN, WHAT YOU HAVE TO USE.

    Your response over what I told you to read and what you did not mention about even downloading the .58b modifed loader, only tells me you don't do what someone asks you to do, read the whole damn 1st post. Use some common sense, it lists and has links to everything you need on the first post.

    Fine...i got the newest GBA Exploader V5.8b and i patched it and it still get stuck at the initialize as usual. again.

    edit: okay, i booted the patched GBA Exploader V5.8 in the m3 ds real 3.7 firmware and it gets past the initialize screen, but like some people, i can't use expansion ram and rumble.Then i put the softreset.m3ds in the root but then it frezzes at the initialize screen...thats as far as i have gotten. thanks for the help anyway.

    one of the bugs with using the patched version is that you have to delete the soft reset nds file.

    The flip side to that issue is that if you plan to use it for web browsing you will need the soft reset nds.

    If you find it still doesn't do what you want, you can try cory's loader:

    get the hwupdate2 version.

    Thanks, and is there any way to fix rumble, besides using the patcher from anonYmous?

    I don't know if the M3 team fixed the soft reset issues on the iTouch, you should have version 2.5A of the firmware on the iTouch, it says in the log that it is suppose to be fixed, otherwise your better off using the universal patches for the 3in1 instead of a specific one.
