What benefit does flashing allow?
Flashing allows you to boot from a Slot 2 device, without a slot 1 passthru device. If you have the M3 Simply/R4, or DS-X you have a passthru device.
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.
Or would the M3 Simply do the job fine?
I do believe the M3 simply does have a passthru so you would not have to flash your NDS if you don't want to.
Also can I play my backup roms online?
You can play backups online, your unique friend code is made based on the code from the game AND the code from your NDS, so every friend code will be unique.
Oh and last question. Is there anyway to get rid of the safety screen on boot? lol
You can reflash your NDS with a BIOS that gets rid of the safety screen.This post has been edited by throwingks: Jan 14 2007, 08:50 PM
