    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.
