    It's finally here.

    Thanks to the work of ahezard, Gericom, Apache, Robz8, _catcatcat, and shutterbug2000, we can now load NDS games from the SD card, without any flashcard/SLOT-1 card.

    As promised, a release is here, on Christmas/Christmas Eve.

    Don't expect high compatibility or save support yet, but do expect many, many updates.

    However...:
    Have fun!

    Some games that work well with this version:

    Warioware: Touched
    Mario Kart DS (if you have a physical MKDS card for saving)
    Bomberman
    GoldenEye: Rogue Agent
    Space Invaders DS
    MegaMan ZX
    Yoshi Touch & Go

    Install either of them and then replace the nds-bootstrap.nds in SD:/_nds with the one from the download in this thread.

    Man, everyone was saying this was still a long ways off and I sucked it up and bought a flash card. Just one month later and here we are :wtf: Fantastic work on this, guys. Looking forward to future updates!

    Oh, and Merry Christmas :D

    Can it read the save from a different game card? For example can you play with mkds rom with cartridge of nsmb with a mkds save injected?
