Looking To Get A Ds Device
Posted 14 January 2007 - 08:12 PM
Just bought a DS as I sold my shitty PSP because homebrew wasn't really going very far and the games just plan sucked for it. So I'm not a n00b when it comes to homebrew etc...but we all have to start somewhere lol.
After a device to play DS backups, roms & just get the most out of what I can from the DS.
Some questions that are running through my head.
So slot 2 is faster than slot 1. Slot 1 is better for DS compatibility. I would need a slot 2 device to play GBA games though. So if I buy a M3 Simply and then later decide "hey I want to play Super Pokemon Bowling Pinball Extreme GBA" I will need to buy a slot 2 device. These are basically the same as the slot 1 devices? You can have onboard flash or mini sd.
Flashing your DS. I guess this would be like soft modding your Xbox? I watched a video on you tube and the guy used some sort of DS card Passme or Passkey... I forget and he had to use a small metal contact to short out a jumper. What benefit does flashing allow? Or would the M3 Simply do the job fine?
Also can I play my backup roms online?
Oh and last question. Is there anyway to get rid of the safety screen on boot? lol
I think I am heading for the M3 Simply root. It allows for great DS game compatibility and the mini SD (not included I know) is removable so its a added bonus.
But I also might want to play GBA games so... well yeh asked that question above.
Thanks for your time,

A flashed NDS can also recover if you get the trojan that bricks your NDS. Don't worry about it too much if you don't flash though. The trojan is very hard to find even if you are looking for it. Keep in mind flashing your NDS does void your warranty.

'R4' and 'M3 Simply' are essentially the same device. You can actually modify either to become the other. They are made by the same company.

Would it be the device you would go for (excluding the DS-X)?

If you also want GBA as well as the DS games, then the 'M3 Lite MicroSD' with a 'PassCard' is probably better.

Also there are 2 versions of Sandisk Micro DS. a Ultra version which "boosts speeds". Would that be better than the basic sandisk?

So I take my chances and order from there or I order from the trusted www.mrmodchips.co.uk
