    Alright, I just recently got a M3i Zero and the GBA expansion.

    Is anyone willing to explain pretty much everything to me? I'm pretty much a complete noob to this stuff, so any help is appreciated.


    Here's what I've done on my own.

    -Got the M3 to run Sakura and play MP3s on my DS Lite



    Here's the questions I have.

    - What do I need to do to play DS and GBA roms on this?

    - What else (if anything) can I do with the M3?


    Heading to bed now, but I'll check as soon as I wake up. Thanks in advance.

    You can play homebrew. [​IMG]
    Get nds and gba roms and put it on the micro sd and launch them to play nds and gba games. No we will not provide you with them.

    That's it? It's that simple for this?

    That's much simpler then I figured it would be, thanks.

    Oh, and I know you guys won't provide them for me, I did read the rules.

    Hi, a somewhat related question. Will a slot2 card of any kind work for the GBA function, or does it have to be an M3 GBA expansion for the GBA capability to kick in?

    M3 or ewin expansion works natively.
    EZ-flash expansion requires a separate loader tool, which also needs to be patched because it's made not to work on M3 cards.

    That's odd... I just started Metroid Fusion and it seems to be working just fine?
    I am using my old slot2 G6 Lite card (not booting through the slot2, of course, but through the M3i Zero). No hacks or loaders of any kind used.

    Well, I'm a happy man anyway [​IMG]

    M3/G6 slot-2 standalones usually work too, yes.
    didn't mention them because you asked about expansions

    they removed the ewin compatibility natively a while ago with new firmware

    Just to be clear to the op: You dont need to have then slot 2 in every time you want to play a DS game. The only time you need it is if you want to play GBA roms or GBA homebrew.
