Sorry for the qucik and unhelpful reply. Just as oafan mentioned the other specs. But r4 has a built in passme and your run homebrew straight from the slot 1. Deal Extreme has a pretty good deal on the card and 1gig TF microSD
for about $45

I personally think is well worth it. I would post you a link but then it shows you the playability to warez. You can make a simple search on it.

Wow, $45 with free shipping for 1 gig of Slot 1 DS homebrew. I might have to pick that up. I've been hodling off waiting for a better solution that didn't require a flash adapter in the GBA slot, and that looks like it.

Still not sure if it is really worth it for me, as I haven't seen a whole lot of SNES roms I think I'd bother with that work with sound. Hrm...

Sweet. Action.
The only thing is I wish you have shown that after my card gets delivered. :(

That is awesome!

Still, I definitely need a flash cart solution with the GBA slot as I like homebrew options on my Gameboy Micro. My M3 suits my needs fine (though it is a little big, but still).

So I'm taking it you can't boot from the GBA slot with a slot 1 only adapter such as the one mentioned so much in this thread ? That may restrict my decision. I want DS + GBA homebrew.

The r4 has a built in passme for the folks who still want to use the slot 2 for homebrew.

But then why would you even need a slot 1 card if you would end up buying a slot 2 card anyway? A passme is loads cheaper than a flash card with passme support.

Having said that, I realize there is a huge market for a one slot solution and this is a great deal for that. As long as you don't care about GBA support, this is one to jump on.

exactly, I can care less about slot 2 now. Slot 1 homebrew is progressing and I'm satisfied the way it is.
