    I have a M3 DS Real with the gba expansion pack, and I've been thinking about replacing it with a CycloDS. I really don't want to have to buy an EZ Flash 3-in-1, so would my M3 DS Real expansion pack work? Also, if it does work, can I load GBA games from the firmware menu like I can with the M3 DS Real? Or would I have to use Rudolph's tool? Sorry if I sould like a n00b!

    It works but you can't load directly from Slot 1.

    You'll have to use GBAExploader for loading games, activating rumble and expansion pak usage.

    That's a bummer. Would I also have to use GBAExploader with the 3-in-1? Or is it just with the M3 Expansion Pack?

    No, the CycloDS directly supports the 3-in-1 so you don't need any additional programs.

    Could this be fixed with a firmware update?
