    Well, MENUdo Install seems pretty easy to implement. As for Moonshell+Romloading, I'd have to track down each DLDI file for each flashcart. Actually getting the DLDItool is easy. A similar reason is why not all R4 clones that retrogamefan's can support are supported in FlashcartHelper. If someone is observant, they might have noticed that all the R4 Clones that need to keep their original kernel aren't supported in FlashcartHelper YET. Soon, I'll track them down, upload to filetrip if not already, and add support for that. It'll just have to take a while.

    Just to give you guys one more heads up, I haven't started on adding the new R4 Clones.
    I'm in progress of adding MENUdo install support, it's almost done.
    I just finished coding for a Backup/Restore function, just in case [​IMG]

    Also, I won't be releasing 0.7.7, I've decided to just skip right ahead to version 0.8. I won't be adding support for more R4 carts than the ones listed above until 0.9 or later though.

    I have not added the new R4 carts yet.. But other than that, It just needs some cleaning up.

    Progress Update.

    I've added most of the R4 Clone cards I planned, polished up the Menudo install process, and finished a MSD backup feature.

    I just gotta finish up a bit and add EDGE support, expect a release in the next few days or next week.

    There's only one problem. I downloaded it, but it doesn't turn on, i mean i click it but nothing happens. I disabled Sonar Protection from Norton, what else do I do to fix it?

    Hey

    There hasn't been a release for a while, and that's because I'm a bit busy these past few weeks, and I will still be, for about a month. I have to hurry to finish all my school stuff, since I'm going on vacation again, in December. Of course, that doesn't mean FlashcartHelper is dead, it's very much alive, and when the next update comes, you'll be sure to get it. Feel free to suggest features and flashcarts that I haven't yet added. Not to mention bugs. How can I fix anything if I don't know about it? I'd really appreciate that.

    Also, a little support goes a long way. It doesn't make me feel very good, if I use my free time to code this tool, and to find that only a few people use it. Other than that, I am requesting this thread to be stickied, because a tool is no good if no one can find it. I just want to make sure that anyone who wants, or needs to use FlashcartHelper can find it, and I'm sure that no one likes searching through however number of pages. Thanks [member="GeekyGuy"] :D

    Anyways, I'll try my best to push a bugfix release soon, but a release will come when I can. I'm only one man. :(

    Thanks :D

    Just make a folder on your Desktop, put FlashcartHelper in there, and it'll work fine. I won't remove checks, because it's a safety precaution. The DSTT install deletes folders, and if you run it on the Desktop, it'll delete all folders there.
