    Is there any way to make an M3 Lite Perfect boot straight to GBA mode?

    Put it in a GBA? I dont think there is unless you select slot-2 from the DS main menu (where you can slect pictochat, slot 1, slot 2, or options and stuff)

    Well, you could use gbaboot.nds, it's homebrew. I don't know anymore where to get it though [​IMG]

    But why bother? Just choose boot slot 2, let the M3 Perfect start and push the start button. It will reboot in GBA mode.

    Just set the DS to autoboot.

    1. On the main screen, tap the little DS icon on the bottom of the screen to change your settings.
    2. Tap the pink wrench icon.
    3. Tap the top icon, an arrow pointing into a box.
    4. Tap the box labled Auto Mode and press A.

    Now when you turn on your DS with a GBA cart inserted and no NDS card, it will automatically load into GBA mode.

    Variables to Mooney's method:

    1.Does rolyy WANT a game in slot-1 when he does this? If he does, it'll auto-boot to NDS unless...
    2.Is his DS flashed? If it is, it'll always boot to NDS mode.

    If his DS is NOT flashed and does NOT want slot-1 occupied, then it'll work [​IMG]

    If DS is flashed, take everything out of DS (nothing in slot1 and nothing in slot2), and set the boot method to manual. Put M3 in slot2 and whatever in slot 1. Now when you turn on your DS, if you hit no buttons, it will boot to M3 NDS mode. If you hit either start or select, it will go to the DS main menu, and you can select Boot GBA

    I have an R4 for all my DS purposes and would like to make my slot-2 M3 Lite boot straight to gba mode, just for convenience and not to mention the gba border as well. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I'm on the hunt for gbaboot.nds




    -Edit-
    Hey guys. it was actually gbaswitch.nds

    Found it here. so all credit goes to RyanFB. I'll upload it to the database as well.

    Note - It provides the convenience of not having to boot to nds mode and then to gba mode, but the gba frame won't apply.
