    How about Download Play?
    ==============

    I have the problem that dumping GBA games does not work when starting GodMode9i from Wood (R4i Gold 3DS and AceKard 2i). I get no options when pressing (A) on GBA GAMECART although the presence of the game is acknowledged with removal of [x] when inserting GBA game.
    When doing this:
    • Turn of DS-Lite, start flashcart (Wood)
    • Start TWiLight Menu++ from Wood
    • Start GodMode9i from TWL++
    dumping GBA carts works perfectly. I tried all sorts of options and settings in Wood. No good.

    Hello.:)

    Maybe I am too dumb and stupid....how please ?
    I never used TWilight an other Way than on an Flashcart on the DS Lite.And I have unfortunately no Idea how else I can use Homebrew on the DS Lite.

    Excuse me,I do not understand how this should work....:sad:

    Thank you for your Understanding and your Patience.

    Well… not the complete TWL++. That won't work.

    You can upload simple homebrew (and official demo ROMs) right to any DS system with wii-ds-rom-sender. It works for starting GodMode9i – but I was not able to mount flashcart micro-SD, not even on AceKard 2i where this works when loading the file manager from unlaunch or from TWL++.

    It's worth a try what happens with a GBA flashcart (which I still do not have).

    Since your DS-Lite has FlashMe you can just upload any DS-ROM up to 4MB (RAM limit). Without FlashMe you need Haxxstation (everything explained in the readme.md)

    @alexander1970 Perhaps I should rephrase.
    After starting GM9i from your Slot-2 flashcard, if there's a cart inserted, take it out, and insert the game cart.

    Wait, I thought that's what you did?
    If you didn't, then what did you do to test dumping to Slot-2?

    The Smiley Feature is gone.:D


    The R4 Flashcart Unmounting/Remounting works perfect.
    :yay:


    After Unmounting the Flashcart it does not detect the Gamecarts (Up/Brain Training/Führerschein Trainer)

    - R4 and EZ Flash attached
    - boot Godmode9i via TWiLight
    - unmount R4 Flashcart
    - detach the R4 Flashcart
    . attach the Gamecart - DS Lite freezes

    (I have tried it on 2 additional DS Lite Devices,without FlashME,same Issue)

    Second Try:

    - EZ Flash attached
    - R4 removed
    - booted Godmode9i via Download Play
    - Gamecarts (Up/Brain Training/Führerschein Trainer) not detected
    - R4 Remount not possible.

    (....after that Day you can let me take you to the Lunatic Asylum....:rofl2:).

    Thank you.:)

    Do you maybe need to do a special DLDI patch for the Slot-2 card to work? Like described in this old tutorial for NDS Backup Tool: How to backup your games using any slot 2 and slot 1 cards combination.

    The DLDI header says "EZ Flash 4 (SD Card)", though you can try if it works.

    Unfortunately it did not worked.....

    I followed the Steps from @migles and run the Tool from within TWiLight or Directly from another R4 Flashcart with YSMenu.

    TWiLight:

    - Tool starts
    - Removed R4 Flashcart and inserted a Gamecart
    - choosed "Rom Backup"
    - freezes..

    P1360217.JPG P1360218.JPG

    R4 YSMenu:

    - Tool starts
    - Removed R4 Flashcart and inserted a Gamecart
    - freezes..

    P1360219.JPG P1360220.JPG

    *sigh* :sad:

    Can you try GM9i with the DLDI patch instead?
    If it can at least access the Slot-2 flashcard's microSD card, then the driver works.

    Both screenshots say "Slot-2 Cartridge : [ TTIO ]" which I assume TTIO would be the R4 not the EZ flash, though it does say Slot-2... Did you skip the part about preventing the patch from being overridden / maybe modern flashcards are still able to patch it? :unsure:

    I think no...it freezes right here:

    P1360221.JPG

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    No Step was skipped,it says "Use the NO/YES Patch in any Case".:)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You maybe correct with the Patch,but when I do it the other Way,the same happens like on Godmode9i,it freezes:
    P1360222.JPG

    I think the DLDi Patch ist not working (correct) because of the SD Card Modell.(Maybe limited to 2 GB...)
    i will search for one and report back....:)
