1. the firmware:
The firmware files are what are needed by the M3 to work, these are what come on the CD, but chances are they are out dated, so throw the CD away and download the latest firmware files from http://www.handheldsources.com/M3DS/Download_M3DSS.html Once downloaded you should extract the folders "_system_" and "moonshl" along with the files "_DS_MENU.DAT" and"_DS_MSHL.DAT" to the root of the microSD card.
well thats it basically your m3/r4 is now ready to use!
NOW i will tell you how to extract games etc.
(before continuing make sure you have WINrar installed on the computer,tis is very important!)
2. getting games!
*P.M ME FOR WEBSITE*
this website is in spanish so i have made a username for all my friends and family to use
username: wii_BrEnDo2007 password: Nintendo
even though this is in spanish you should be able to guess where you type this in
its the two blank spaces provided on the websites toolbar
3.downloading: now you have a search bar at the side to type in what game you want............after this the games boxart will appear and there will be a selection of options: Emule, Torrent,floppy disc,Megaupload, and another. The easiest way of downloading games in by clicking Megaupload(the ballon pic is a small M) by clicking on this another window should open,providing this happens MEGAUPLOAD will open it will ask you to type in digits/letters (im sure you know what this is for brian!) anyway after this the window will update and a timer will be on the bottom of the screen when this reaches zero you can start downloading
(p.s on the home page of espalnds there are a selection of new games,a game wich just came out will be automatically updated to their database so no worries,also something you may wish to note is that the ds is not reigon locked so you can download any game from any reigon)
open the winrar database and just drag the .nds file into your sd card and hey presto you are finished!
enjoy the m3/r4
