    I'm using an Acekard 2.1 with Akaio 1.5 plus a EZFlash 3in1.
    When trying to boot a gba rom to the NOR memory the DS doesn't go past the gba bios,
    Also there is no Nintendo logo. (It's like when you star a real gba with no game inserted.)
    I can then start my games from the DS menu, but that makes it impossible to play PassMe roms.
    Is this a known issue and is there a fix for it?

    is your card the newer 3in1+? does the gba game/homebrew have a valid header? have you tried formatting the msd? have you run any testers on the 3in1 nor and/or formatted it?

    I formatted it with Akaio.

    Edit: I also tried GBA ExpLoader 058b and another 3in1+ modul but still the same issue.

    the issue is because you have a 3in1+. all users i know can't get it to boot out of the akaio menu, they are forced to use the nds firmware menu. the only fix for this would be to ask ez to share the source, but from what i've heard that won't be "easy." i'm not sure what is causing the 3in1+ to hang up, probably the nor detection or something. i know for a fact that norm doesn't have a 3in1+. if someone was willing to donate one, perhaps he would work on the problem. you should just sell it, or offer it to norm. then buy the older 3in1 off realhotstuff. they are the last site that guarantees the older version.

    dsheretic works on my 3in1new using akaio for passme. i sort of remember that vatoloco had it working but i don't remember if it was his 3in1+ or not.

    vato: if you read this thread chime in, i know you have the 3in1+ and you post often =P.

    Well I still got one left from my order of 5 3in1, as one off my friend decided that he doesn't want his anymore. Since I couldn't find anyone else who wants it I'll just offer it to norm. [​IMG]

    that would be really cool of you. drop normmatt a PM on gbatemp or stop by #acekard on the gbatemp irc network. i'd love to see the 3in1+ issue solved.

    Yeah, Heretic works with my 3in1+...the way i get around the NOR flashing issue is by using GBAExploader to flash a game instead of using AKAIO to do it .

    After the game is installed i can run it from AKAIO by using the GBA launcher icon on the first screen, remember to press L+A when launching.


    Another thing i just kinda discovered is that i can use a .nds dump of the MMD launcher (its a passkey) to boot up Heretic or whatever =)

    Ah that helped. I thought you had to push L+A when selecting the rom.
