Yes, it's my first post... So, I have a friend who's driving cross-country in a week with his kid, and needs a way to keep his sanity. The solution was obvious - sell him my old DS (don't worry, the price was fair), get him a flash cart, and while I'm at it, finally order one for myself - to use on a brand new DS lite. So I ordered a couple of SD M3s off linker4u.com - and a single passme device, which was supposed to work with both the heavy and the lite - the Super Pass II (compatible, the box says, with IDS, NDS, and NDSL). At the time, I wasn't aware that super pass is best buddies with the super card - it seemed it would work with the M3. So: I get started working on "his" DS, manage to flash it, no problem. Then I turn to the new DS lite. O M G. The colors - suddenly the whole world except the DS screens seems washed out. Then I stick the Super Pass II and other M3 in and turn it on. Two. White. Screens. ???? I google stuff. It seems the super pass II can't handle the DS Lite by default - *it* has to be flashed first! They have to be kidding. OK... so I find http://eng.supercard.cn/manual/superpass2.htm It's got lovely English such as "start fueling program". They hafta be kidding. You need to locate a parallel cable, and the procedure depends on which original cart you have, and you have to have one from the list? (I have like 20 original DS carts, so no prob. You can laugh if you want). The utility says the upgrade was successful. Then I copy the two files indicated to the root of the SD card (why is there a third file with the same name? let's copy it too, to be on the safe side). I run it in GBA mode, it says SRAM was written. I push the super pass (with the game in) into the DS, flick it on and off... Two. White. Screens. WTF? Now, I've followed the instructions precisely, and tried twice with different original carts. Maybe it's just that some part of the process really hinges on having a super card and not an M3? That is, the super pass II can't really be updated, and so can't really be used with a Lite, unless you happen to use it together with a super card (which I don't have). Another possibility is that even though the box says it's a super pass II, I got a super pass I? How can I tell? All I can tell about the device is that it's black. I'd welcome any suggestions (including alternatives - if you've got a passme 2 or whatever I can borrow in the next few days, let me know - I'll buy you lunch(he said half jokingly)). My backup plan is to run around looking for wifime compatible network adapters. ... And while we're at it - I had a strange thought: it's possible to download flashme from a PC using wifime. It's possible to download demos from another DS. It seems to me that it should be a simple matter (for somebody who knows about these devices - I only know PC development) to write a program that runs on a DS, and can download homebrews to other DSs. So once you're able to run homebrews on one DS, you can use it to send flashme to others - without a passme device. Does this kind of thing seem feasible? Does it exist already?
