    Can the M3 gba memory expansion work with ds linux if you're not using an M3 in slot 1?

    If DSLinux already recognizes the M3 GBA Expainsion, then it doesn't matter what card you run it from, it should still work with the expansion pack.

    all unofficial memory expansions use a standard design.
    the only reason the 3in1 expansion doesn't work for some things is because it has different modes, and has GBA mode as default mode.
    other expansions should work fine with any homebrew/flashcart combination.

    Hi, so you can use the M3 slot 2 as an expansion WITH a slot 1 running DSlinux? If not, can I use an official Nintendo expansion pack instead?

    My M3 wont read my SD card anymore but if it can be still used as an expansion that'd be great.
