I just wanted to say thank you for creating a great nopass device that works like it should.

My Passcard 3 wouldn't boot my EZ4 Lite or my FA Pro 256 GBA cart, but the MK4-mini did the job.

Thanks again for making a nopass the way it should be made, to work with anything.

Also, if I don't patch a rom to save to the GBA cart, will all flash carts find the save game in the MK4-Mini?  I guess it's not the cart that finds it, but the game itself.

perfectly under GBA mode means the GBA Flash Carts that have NDS Roms on them.

MK4 Mini and MK4 Key Works With:

- G6 (G6 Lite)
- M3       (Yet To Be Tested)
- SuperCard
- Ez Flash (EZ4 Lite)
- ect ect...

Hi All -

I've been keeping my eye out keenly on the release of the mk4. I have one question though - i own an XG2Turbo card 512M (the manufacture date is late 2004) and this card is the older type where you use the GBA to write roms directly onto the cart via the usb cable (linker).

After researching around, it seems like this cart cannot write in 'single rom' mode (ie. to run NDS homebrew/games) and the menu loader is always present. This i understand is a big problem for the current passme's out there as they need to just run the DS rom and not another menu loader from the GBA cart.

Will the mk4 be compatible to allow DS roms to run off this card? Will the standard menu loader from my cart allow multiple DS roms?

I don't have my mk4-mini yet to be 100% certain.  However, I doubt you will be able to run nds roms using that particular flashcart (assuming you can't disable the boot loader)

The mk4-mini patching software may only allow flashing of a single rom at a time (don't know for certain until it's actually released)

Maybe you might want to wait for the mk4 SD to be released.  That may possibly not require a gba flashcart at all..

does the MK4(-Mini) boot also a Visoly Flash Advance Pro (256Mb) ?
Passcard3 doesn t boot this flashcard into my ds lite (i have tested it). If the MK4-Mini works, it could be interesting.
Thank you

Thanks for that BruceG - looks like im out of luck with my current cart.
I'll see how the MK4-SD goes, hopefully that'll be out soon.

Yes i have tested it putting a single .nds.gba file but it doesn t boot with succes with passcard3, so if MK4-Mini or MK4-Key do it, it would be very nice !
This test had been done with a ds lite but with an old ds with flashme, the flashcard worked

Has anyone tested the MK4-Mini with a M3 mini-SD (with latest firmware)? Any success stories?
