    ok, let me explain it

    if i got my ds flashed and i wanna enable the sleep mode i put an original game in the slot1 but the battery will last like if i have a superkey in the slot1?

    some kind of stupid question but ill buy soon a g6lite and superkey, passcard3 or ezpass3 and i dont sure if i should flash the lite but if im gonna do it im just wanna to be sure about this topic.


    EDIT: should i buy ezpass3 for the g6 lite? 'cause it compatibles with everything

    Sorry bud you have to have a nopass card installed or a regualr ds game so that sleep mode will work. As for the EZPass I'm not a fan. I prefer the SuperKey or Passcard 3 as they are the best on the market for a reason. I have heard that if you have a NDS game in the NDS game slot while using a flashcart it drains the battery faster but I haven't seen any test results from this as of yet.

    If you flash your DS you will not need a No-pass card, & if you use the
    standard Flashme you will no longer have the Nintendo warning page.
    But your sleep mode will NOT work correctly unless you have a DS
    cart installed or one of the other many No-pass/ fake cards. But it will
    generally get 1 to 2 more hours out of a flashed DS over a Non-flashed.
    And don’t forget flashed units will not be bricked if you get a DS-Trojan.

    No it doesn't, or at least it isn't enough to notice. Either way, it's far superior to the battery drain of a passme device.

    I think he is talking about the old EZPass 2:

    Well in that case of course there are better solutions that doesn't stick out.
