That's just awesome :D , no need for separated devices anymore ! And the price is just great ! I would only like a CF card support, and USB port for directly accessing the card from a PC  :'(, but that's just some minor minor things   ::) !

Just wonderful !  :D
Thanks a lot for your work !  ;)

Plz tell me if I understood this wrong:

MK2 lets you put in an MMC or SD card in order to use as the storage of roms and apps! So no need for any gba-flash-cards anymore?

And the MK3 has build in memory in the device for this ?

OR is it just: The SD/MMC gives you some buffer stuff and you still nedd a gba-flashcard (--> MK3 = MK2 + big GBA Flashcard?)

i think the gba flash card is needed to boot the magic key

maybe something in the firmware, flashing the DS could make it use without gba card.

Sounds very cool indeed  , hope a review will answer these questions soon :

- when is it expected to be on sale ?
- does it run "clean" nds-roms ? or only gst ? (i hope so, but i'm afraid that would be wishfull thinking...)
- does there have to be a gba-flash card in the DS ?
- can NDS roms be placed on a SD or MMC you plug in the magic key ?

Hopefully we'll know soon :)
