    Topic ^

    I've always wondered this. My DS-X can be used as a PassCard - what can I do with this?

    Thanks!

    PassCard means it can boot a Slot 2 device without the need of another Slot 1 cart called a Passme. It's naturally incorporated in the DS-X and other slot-1 carts.

    Before Slot-1 devices were introduced, a Passcard/Passme was required to boot the Slot-2 devices into nds mode.

    Or you could have flashed your DS(which requires a passcard ironically)
