So what is the advantage of this to the G6Lite? Because from what I read...they have a version of this that does not stick out of the Lite. Does it also involve flashing firmware?
And also, does the DS Lite function like a regular DS Lite when the Superkey is removed from the DS cartridge slot? I just don't want to do anything to void my warranty.
G6 Lite is a flashcart, the Superkey is a Passme device. They are used together to be able to run homebrew. As I said in my last post, a Passme device (Superkey in this case, or flashing your firmware) bypasses the secutiry checks, allowing you to run homebrew from the GBA slot.
The G6 and other flashcarts basically act as a hard drive that you run your homebrew files on, store pics, mp3's movies, ect... The "flash" in flashcart doesn't refer to flashing the firmware. It's "flash" as in flashmemory (SD, CF, MiniSD, ect..) because it is an adapter that allows you to plug in flash media to the DS via the GBA slot.
One thing about the G6 is that it has internal flash memory that isn't upgradable (see my post about G6 a few posts up). Where as carts such as M3 or Supercard work as an adapter for CF, SD, or MiniSD. Enabling you to use as much memory as you want, limited only by the size of your CF, SD, or MiniSD cards (I think they are up to 4 gigs now).
As far as your warranty, flashing over your firmware does void the warranty. Using the Superkey though does not. And it does function the same as a regular DS Lite without it in, because it still is one. It's just the same as inserting a DS game cartridge, because it basically is one, sleep mode and all
