Just curious, really. Does anyone know what the first flash card for DS was, and when it came out?
Probably the PassMe that Dark Fader worked on. I think that was like 6 years ago.
Well, if you're talking about flashcarts as we know them now, that would be the R4DS.
There were many flashcarts before that which operated by booting a Slot-2 device through PassMe, but R4DS was the first flashcart to load DS roms through a microSD slot in Slot-1 itself.
It made homebrew and back-up loading incredibly easy, and when R4DS added DLDI-patching, homebrew and commercial roms alike could be run merely by drag-and-drop loading.
No patching or anything at all, R4DS would become the standard and the model for all future flashcarts to work on.
Actually i think you will find it was the NinjaDS that was released first (using full sized sd cards).
of course you know nothing.
The first "flash cart(ridge)" as we know it now, with a micro SD slot, would be the R4.
The NinjaDS did the same job with a SD card.
The first item that let GBA flash carts work on a DS was the PassMe.
EDIT: Also, IIRC the first "stand alone" DS flashcart was the NeoFlash MagicKey (I THINK).
i think all these slot1 carts came before the r4/m3
There were more than that.
The R4 was the first Gen-2 (what we know today) flash cart.
i think he want's to know what the first flashcard for the DS was, that enabled the playing of comercial NDS roms.
i am curious too.
What was the first card that could be used to launch NDS roms on a DS?
(not counting GBA flashcards, and slot2 cards for GBA)
i have a Ninja DS
