    Hi guys,

    after the recent key leaks from 3DS community, is in some way possible to obtain a dump of the NDS BootROM ?

    It's been floating around for many years.

    Google "BIOSNDS9.ROM"

    I have biosnds7 and biosnds9 (and also frimware.bin) but there seems to be also a "bootloader" or "bootrom" for NDS. Or maybe I am wrong and this rom is present in DSi only ? It is described here.

    You're trying to get no$gba to boot a dsi nand right? Should have just said that :P

    google "game_nogba_with_dsi_firmware_dump_for_dsiware"
    ...for a good pre-made one, should save you a lot of trouble. And it has dsi *bootroms

    *they have never been dumped completely to my knowledge. @dark_samus3 is still working on that I think.

    Do you know for sure if NDS has a bootrom or not?

    Those "bios" files are essentially the bootroms I think.
    There's a dumper homebrew somewhere but you're just gonna get the same files.

    I got them but now I am stuck at decrypting the firmware.bin: i found a tool called fwunpacker by a great guy called Chishm but compiled .exe and source code seems to be gone from the web; does any of you have a copy of that software ? The only one seems to be stored here but no way to register (site registration seems to be broken).

    @Lilith Valentine has an account on ds-scene, she might be able to grab it for you.

    Maybe some of you can also provide injektor2 1.09 ? Another web-disappearing useful software (to edit R4 firmwares) :)
