Slot-2 Devices

Slot 2 devices need some kind of PassMe or FlashMe to be able to boot DS Homebrew. Some Slot-2 devices do not have homebrew capability and can only be used as extra RAM (For example EZ 3 in 1, Opera Expansion Pak). You can use a Slot-1 Device to boot DSLinux and it will automatically detect and enable extra RAM in Slot-2. Not all devices with GBA RAM are supported as extra RAM

See herefor a list of Slot-2 devices that can provide extra RAM
