Hi, I have just recently been researching NDS flashing hardware recently and I have found the M3i Zero to be very promising but I hear it doesn't play GBA games as it is not slot 2. Is there an up-to-date slot 2 adapter that can do everything the M3i does, AND play GBA games. Also, I would like real time saving My friend said the M3 Lite does so, but I have been reading up on it in the forums and most topics are from around 2006 (so outdated? I dunno, I haven't been around in the community so I'm not sure what's good).

Also, IS the M3i the currently "best" NDS flashing hardware or is there anything else out there that may be somewhat pricier/better?

So to sum this up I would like something that can real time save, play All (most) GBA games and all (most) DS games that is very reliable. Price isn't too much of an issue.


Thank you all for your help, and I look forward to the day I'm knowledgable!

M3i Zero will work with a GBA expansion cart only if you have a DS or DSL, it will not work on DSi simply due to no slot-2

it the same thing as a M3 Real except it works on DSi
if you have a DSL or DS and have no intention of upgrading to a DSi then just get a M3 DS Real Perfect Bundle
comes with:
M3 Real
M3 GBA Expansion Pak
M3 Rumble Pak
3x replacement cases for expansion pak's (white DSL, clear DSL, and clear DS, along with the default black DSL)
MicroSDHC usb reader
Plastic case for M3 Real cart (or any slot one cart) and 1 microsd

That doesn't sound bad too bad...Does the M3i have any better firmware support or anything more software/update efficient vs the M3 real, because I know of people saying "everything" on the M3i is update able? Because if so, I'm willing to dish out the cash for the M3i zero and the expansion cart for the GBA rather than the bundle.

Thanks for your responses btw

the only difference is the M3i Zero works on the DSi and can be updated to still work on the DSi when nintendo releases an update for it

you dont have to worry about that if you have a regular DS

Could I possibly have a link to a trusted website that doesn't sell fakes? The search function isn't working for me

why buy something from there which costs more then both sites
doesnt come with free expansion pak cases and is almost double the shipping costs for a longer wait...?

There are no much difference of price on the three sites. All reasonable! On depot888, with coupon number "280721" will get $1 off. And they sell the cards with downloaded firmware. Great service.
