  1. someone had asked if you could install it to an external HDD and boot it from there? You can but you lose a little speed with opening and running things off of it. It's not like media transport from external hdd. All you do to boot the installed OS from external HDD is change your settings on boot order in your bios. If you have a somewhat new PC then it would have USB, or legacy USB in the boot menu. Just put that first before your optical drive, or internals, and it will boot.
  2. sorry for double post... I do still want to know if there is anything I can do to flash my NDS Lite with what I've got, but I also just ordered the R4 SDHC, and during reading this I've run into another issue. In the documentation it mentioned supporting Micro-SD from 128mb to 4gb, but then it also states that 4gb=32gbit that leaves me puzzled. I noticed something similar I think on my EFA-Linker as well. Before I knew about flashing, I tried to put an NDS rom on it that was 22mb, but the card had little to no space left afterward and it was a 512mb card... Can someone explain that? MOONEY HELP ME!!!!
  3. Cinder is right, although most of the PS3 games are even smaller than the 6gb! There is alot of compressed dummy files and padding.. Unbelievable amounts really. The backup method here will work but there are only select games from small companies that you are able to do this with. I don't have a huge library of PS3 titles, but from dumps of Oblivion, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Bloodshot2, Rockband2, and Motorstorm. There is a file header that has an odd difference in code, it's similar to the dumps of PS3 firmware updates. The games have some file that generates a small random code string that is verified by the PS3, it's signed by Sony somewhat like driver signing with PC drivers. The exception is without a custom firmware is that the PS3 doesn't allow running unsigned or third party code. I guess it's a piece of the development kit. But yea if you have a precise dump of a title that is a smaller company's release, and the original disc to run long enough to get past the security check it will work, but it's not even 40% success rate I don't think. Games can freeze before you get anywhere, or freeze in the middle of play.. or don't load at all. So until I find something concrete in from of backups I'm not traumatizing my PS3 anymore. I've already nearly bricked it numerous times. I think I'm just gonna watch for something substantial to be developed. Or for someone to get a driver for the RSX driver for the PS3 linux releases. If Dark_Alex and M33 would just put out a custom firmware for PS3 like the PSP, we would all be in for great things! *edit* I think the Blu-Ray java tricks may open up the door for other things, I've also wondered if games that support cross platform mods could be a key. Like Unreal Tournament III, if you could make the exploit thru a homemade level for other mod. Software modding of the Xbox used save exploits from Siphon Filter, MechAssault ect. Could be possible
  4. Hey, I know I'm like 2 years late in posting to this but I was skeptical on the DS for a long period of time. In stores in my area I was only seeing childish or gurlie games for the system, but I've always been into homebrew, emulation, and PC mod development. I searched around online until I started finding stable DS emulators that would run commercial roms, and thus started searching the market for interesting titles. I just finally bought a DS before Christmas of '08 do to the titles I had found that I was already a huge fan of. I also ran into an EFA-Linker in a pawnshop, picked it up and it works great for GBA roms, but I have Action Replay's Games & Music that I can run GBA roms on. Not to mention a huge stockpile of GBA games I've already had for ages. I ran into this guide for making DS roms run from Slot-2 Carts like GBA, but a the passcards are needed for FlashMe. I also read in here that you can use the Action Replay code junkies DS cart for NO Pass, but I'm running into a problem. When I put FlashMe v8 on the EFA and refresh my Client freezes, if I close it and re open it shows the app flashme on the EFA as an NDS rom, and then when I go to start it with Action Replay holding Select, Both my DS screens freeze white and nothing happens. I hard reset and I'm back to DS. I'm not sure if my problem is in the copy process of FlashMe to the EFA-Linker or if Action Replay's NoPass mode just isn't possible on my DS being so new. Is there any light you could shed on this for me, or other simple maneuvers for flashing my DS? Any help would be appreciated. As I said my DS is very new.. It's a DS-Lite, and I'm not able to get anything updated on my action replay due to compatability with Vista. The Games & Music does work with Vista tho, but that would only work if I manage to turn that into the Pass card as well. I'm stumped. Please help me with this? I can tell you anything you need to know about PSP PS3 Xbox Xbox360, Wii, and a vast range of other mods and tricks, but the DS has me at a stand still... if you can help me get my EFA-Linker to run my DS Commercial Backups you would be a life saver!!!! Thanx in advance... ~HolesinHappyness~Danyael~
