    The M3 Real expansion won't work with slot-1 devices other than the M3 DS Real, if I understand it correctly.

    What you want is either the EZ-V 3in1 expansion pack or the Ewin expansion pack. Those will provide the necessary RAM needed for the Opera browser to run.

    The middle one is not it, but the top and bottom one are. (EZ Flash 4 is not what you want)

    Get the first one if you have the DS Phat, get the last one if you have a Lite.

    Don't be disappointed when you see how slow Opera is on the DS though. I use my 3-in-1 only for GBA games in Rumble.

    The Opera Browser is slow yes, but it renders pages more accurately than any other standalone DS web browser (DSHobro is accurate but requires a PC server). Also, since it's a commercial product it will connect to more wireless APs than homebrew apps will. Honestly the main reason I bought it was so that I could connect to my school's wireless network, which has its SSID hidden. Homebrew can't connect if the SSID is not broadcasted, so only the Opera browser worked.

    It's also fastest if you browse in SSR mode with images disabled, and then change modes if needed for specific pages.
