I just purchased my DSlite last month and have enjoyed playing games on my R4 SDHC since. I purchased the EZFlash 3-in-1 Expansion pack that came today, for the use of Opera DS Browser. I know a lot of users have little patience for stupid questions, so I tried my hardest for the past five hours trying to troubleshoot why this wouldn't work, but I can't figure it out. I downloaded all types of things and I've run out of guesses for my guess and check process. Please help.

First, I think my two most obvious options are:
GBA_ExpLoader_058 and 3-in-1 Expansion Tool 1.9
both downloads were provided here: http://www009.upp.so-net.ne.jp/rudolph/nds/ExpLoader/

-GBA_ExpLoader_058a won't work
-GBA_ExpLoader_058b loads and I've successfully loaded and played a GBA game
-3-in-1 Expansion Tool 1.9 doesn't detect anything in Slot 2 and just tells me to shut down

My steps in trying to load Opera with ExpLoader_058b
1. turn on DS
2. go to ExpLoader and tap "A"
3. press "R" twice and go down to select "Expansion RAM," then tap "A"
4. after soft-boot, I go back into my game directory and load Opera
5. Opera messages to insert Memory Expansion and powers off

Lastly, I've found that there is an option to Patch Opera here:
http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/3_i..._for_EZ-Flash_V
I've downloaded it, but I have no idea how to patch. I tried to understand it, something with ISP or DLDI?

Somebody, anybody... Help? And thank you in advance

thanks for your reply. I guess my only difference from user: dfgged is that he's using iTouch and me R4SDHC. So you're telling me I just have to wait for another Rudolph release? There aren't any alternatives?

I still don't know how to patch, but patching Opera won't do any good either?

Currently, the new 3in1 can only play gba games and that's it. Other games and the web browser cannot benefit from it now. Oddly enough though, it works with gameboy color games with rumble and quake 2 ds (it uses the additional ram). We should be seeing some patches soon.

  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
