PassMe + Commercial NDS ROMs

Many sites that sell PassMe state that commercial nds roms will not work  with it, and initially that was true, but now with new GST (Golden Sun Team) released NDS roms working on NeoFlash we decided to try them out with XG2 2005 card and PassMe and look at the results!
(UPDATE: Now with the NDS Patcher released we can assure you that PassMe and all of its manufactured clones like SuperPass, G6 PassKey, Magic Key etc work with all NDS ROMS)

DS game card into the PassMe

  • So we put one ORIGINAL DS game card into the PassMe

nds passme roms

  • Slide the PassMe into the Nintendo DS came card slot.
  • Write any GST released NDS rom to the XG2 Flash 2005 Card (or NeoFlash) using Slim Loader III and Neo Power Kit Software in NDS_Mode and put it in the DS gba slot.
  • Push the POWER button and surprise, surprise - IT WORKS ;)

Nintendogs NDS rom from Golden Sun Team GBA_Save

Nintendogs NDS rom from Golden Sun Team with GBA_Save will save game progress into the GBA Flash Card instead of overwriting the save in the original NDS card that we ave in the passme. Also with GBA_Save nds roms you don't have to worry about the DS carts save size matching the gamesave size of the rom - Great if you don't have a Nintendo DS cartridge that has 2Mb SRAM needed for Nintendogs!

GoldenEye Rogue Agent gst nds rom

Here you see another commercial game rom running with PassMe - in this case GoldenEye Rogue Agent nds rom.

Why are sites claiming that PassMe can't run commercial NDS roms?
- Most likely to protect them from Nintendo and Entertainment Software Association lawyers.

Can I run commercial nds roms from any DS compatible GBA Flash Card?
- NO - Only NeoFlash and XGFlash2 2005 version GBA flash cards will play commercial roms and they have to be recorded in NDS mode using Neo Power Kit software + the roms have to be with NDS Save or GBA Save - not the regular releases.

Any NDS compatible flash card (for example GBA X-ROM 512M) can be used to run Homebrew applications like NDSLinux and homebrew games as well as DEMO ds roms that are originally meant for playing via Wireless Multiboot.
