I just recently purchased the M3 DS Real card and I was wondering about this Direct Boot option. I've searched the "internets" but I can't find any info as to what Direct Boot is. I was wondering if someone on the board could explain it. I'd like to have a certain mp3 startup when I turn my DS on, and I was wondering if Direct Boot can enable this. Also wanted to say thanks to all the mods and forumers who take their time to post and create guides, etc. I've been lurking on this board for quite some time, and as a result of your posts, have educated myself quite a bit. You all deserve a big round of applause!
