NeoFlash card can be used for GBA roms and all the emulators that have been created for GBA and you can load DS.GBA, NDS.GBA and NDS roms to it. HomeBrew and Commercial.
+ For Neo Flash to work you need ONE (any) original Nintendo DS game. In the pictures we used Metroid demo card but for SaveGame to work correctly you might have to use another cart. DS game card in the Magic Key has to have the same Save Game size as the NDS ROM you have on the gba flash card. For example to play WarioWare Touched! that has a 64Kbit save - you can use Super Mario 64 DS. Keep in mind that when you save the game it will overwrite whatever you had saved on the card that is in NeoFlash Magic Key and so you can loose all your game progress.(Mario SaveGame and unlocked Mini-Games in this case).
Neo Flash Linker aka XG2 Slim Loader III. This is what connects to your PC and Flash Cartridge and writes GBA an NDS ROMs onto the cartridge.
Note: As you can see the Slim Loader and Flash Cartridge are analog to what XG2 makes so their features and capabilities in working as a GBA Flash Card will be the same. We can use our XG2 cards with Magic Key.
Note that 256M XG Flash cards including the PRO card in the above image will work only with the FreeWare roms and Nintendo Wireless DEMOS - you need a 512M / 1G Neo or XG2 card to play COMMERCIAL NDS ROMS like Mario 64 DS and Metroid.
Slim loader can backup GBA roms but for dumping NDS roms we need another device and Neo Team is working on Game Save and DS ROM backup tool - NDS USB Loader
