    So I got my EZ 3-in-1 in the mail, put it in so I could play a 32 MB rom, and GBA exploader says that it could only play 16 MB. I have an Itouch DS (Verison 2.0)

    Someone help, I am tired of buying slot-1 and slot-2 devices.

    You have to write it to the NOR instead of the RAM. RAM is faster, but it won't support roms larger than 16 MB. NOR writing is slower, but it supports roms up to 32 MB and you can play the game without writing it to the 3in1 each time.

    Using NOR means you can only play that one game using NOR unless you wanna lose your save data right? You cant use more than 1 game with NOR ram at a time? I'm just curious because I just purchased a 3-in-1.

    You could try looking at your screen.

    L and R to change modes. R will put you in NOR mode.

    speaking of which i'm taking donations to buy norm and smiths each a 3-in-1 so we can see improved supported in akaio.

    back on topic, for now no matter the integrated support i would stick with gba exploader by rudolph. you can flash to psram/nor/boot ram. you can back up/load saves to multiple save slots. he keeps updating the patching methods so all gba games are supported. the few that aren't have sram patches to fix issues.
