    i know that we cannot run gba games from slot 1 so don't treat me like a noob!

    but i was just wondering...

    would it be possible to incorporate a real gba cartridge into the agenda and run gba from slot one using one of theese somehow?

    or wouldn't it work because of the whole ds mode - gba mode thing?

    this is just an idea that i was wondering

    ^ lol - good point ^

    but what if we could use a commercial cart to somehow trick the device to jump to gba mode from the slot-1?

    Sure you can use your Slot-1 flashcard to jump to GBA mode from the Slot-1.
    But then you'll have a nice white screen because it won't find any card in the GBA slot.

    I actually have a GBA Expansion but it was from the M3 Sakura............and I have an Acekard.

    If you can patch an NDS file to work with that then I'll be thankful...............fucking NDStation has failed me

    What do you mean by the "agenda"? If you're talking about the DS's built-in firmware, that's only 256 KB in size, not nearly large enough to hold even the smallest GBA games that come in at 4 MB.

    You can jump from DS mode to GBA mode very easily, but as was already said, that won't do anything if you've got nothing in the GBA slot.
