    I may sound like a total noob here, but does anyone know the homebrew needed to run GBA games on Itouchds?
    :yay:

    divine intervention.nds

    Google that to play GBA.

    Or get a Slot 2 cart.

    You need an ez flash v 3 in 1 to load gba ROMs or homebrew from standard slot 1 cards. Alternatively you can use any GBA flash card/slot 2 flashcard with using in conjunction with slot 1.

    I believe the iTouch has the same processor on-board as the SCDS:Two, therefore it should be possible to emulate it somehow.

    Why the hell that is possible... Only DSTWO and iSmartMultiMedia can have gba emulator.
    iTouch is just a M3iZero clone...

    MidgetCookie, you definitely need slot2 cart/memory. I recommend M3Ext for iTouch, but I don't know if it is still sold...

    I'd honestly just go with an EZFlash 3in1. I had used my iTouchDS with one and I never had a problem, just need to use GBAExploader.

    Between insane and insecure
    Buy a Supercard DSTwo for GBA emulation or a slot-2 card.
    iTouch can not emulate GBA games.

    I don't like being attacked personally for something so petty.

    If indeed I am wrong, and the iTouch doesn't have the same hardware as the SCDS:Two, then please correct me in a civil manner. Preferably without flaming.

    EDIT: Yes I mad. I try to help to the best of my ability and get condemned for it.

    EDIT 2: Does anyone here even know what an iTouch is in the first place? 'cause I'm pretty sure it has the same MIPS processor that the SCDS:Two has, even if it came out before that cart and wasn't as widely publicized. Again, I could be wrong, but I feel like I'm talking to people who don't even know what a "PassMe"/"WifiMe"/"FlashMe" is.

    People DanTheManMS has probably helped out more flash cart users than the rest of us combined- some slack please.

    Back on topic much like most other areas of tech the pretenders choose similar names to cause confusion among the less informed (although frankly I would not step outside the big 6 or so companies (supercard, EZFlash, m3/g6 (maybe not today), ismart (they are not a simple clone company), cyclo (again maybe not today) and acekard).

    So the clarify

    The itouch as best I can tell is an earlier M3i/oem M3i (mainstream/proper flash cart companies have as many interesting spinoffs and sideprojects as any of the clone companies- pretty much all of them sold a version with R4 in the name and most will sell they prototype type devices under another name for a couple of months, get a good version sorted and then sell that) with all that it entails (no GBA emulation on DS).

    The ismart premium is a cart based off the EZ5 at some level (no GBA emulation on DS) although the software diverged (they also have a nice program called fishshell which is pretty much Chinese moonshell that gained some ability to control/run things).

    The ismart MM is a cart based off the iplayer (which was made the supercard team) but the ismartDS team put the in the time to port the DSTwo kernel and now gets backports/crossports of the DSTwo fixes and kernel but not the DSTwo homebrew primarily as it is a slightly different processor/architecture (although it has a/the decent media player and a GBA emulator along with a custom version of dingux that the DSTwo does not have that punches well above its weight- as in a handful of amiga and PS1 games above its weight).

    IsmartDS (who make the ismart premium and ismart MM) are an oem/licensing company (although they have some people that know what they are doing) rather than a clone company as well.

    No, because that is not an iTouch. That is an iPod Touch. Two completely different things.

    So are the people who call black people African-American, but I don't hear any complaints.

    Just because people don't complain doesn't mean it's right then.

    Never mind that, the title of the thread is "Itouchds".
