The games get on the PM by using a re-programmable memory (flash memory). The Pokemon Mini uses a special way to address the memory (a multiplexed address bus) and this is why we need a cpld (programmable logic device) to translate data of the Pokemon Mini to a format that the flash memory can understand. Building a flash cart indeed is hard to do because of the size you need technical knowledge and you can really screw up by blowing up components (it's quite expensive!). So better wait until we can offer flash carts to everyone, they will be of good quality and ready to use (at least that is what i hope....)
