    What software can I put on my Original M3 Adapter that uses a CF card?

    I also use the passkey 2 with it to play DS games.

    Looking to give it to someone so I need to update the software.

    Thanks

    Away from you.
    You haven't specified if it's a slot-1 cart or slot-2 cart.

    If it's a slot-1 cart, you can probably find some really old outdated version of Wood, or M3Sakura, which is just custom Moonshell2 that allows for commercial ROM loading.

    If it's a slot-2 cart... then I don't know.

    EDIT: Oh wait, you mentioned a PassKey... then I don't know use the default Touchpod firmware, if the slot-2 cart even uses that.

    It goes in the GBA slot and the Passkey goes in the NDS slot.

    I guess its just better to tell the person to buy a new M3 or R4?

    Buy an R4i Gold because it has WoodR4 support and SDHC support.

    Sadly all the firmwares for the slot-2 cards are out of date and will never be updated.
    I suggest looking into new flashcard, not another M3, Avoid M3's!
    I suggest looking into some flashcards like Supercard DSonei, Supercard Two, Acekard 2i, R4, or R4i Gold, since all of those cards have active teams and update regularly.

    Not really... R4 always had YSmenu to keep it alive.

    But no one is going to make a replacement firmware for the slot-2 flashcard this late into DS life-span.

    The best "R4" is the R4i Ultra or R4iGold 2.0(r4ids.com) they uses Akaio!

    Yes, but it's never going to get updated.
    So you are just better off getting an Acekard 2i

    I wouldn't throw it away. It's still a very good GBA cart. There are still people who are looking for a good GBA cart.

    At the very least, he can try to sell it. Should be able to get $40 or more. Try selling in this forum or in a retro forum such as racketboy.com.
