    I've heard mention that this is caused by an SD with slow speeds (keep in mind that the class of a card doesn't determine how fast it reads and writes). I don't know if that's conclusive, though. I have the same problem, and I figured I'd just wait until this gets smoothed out.

    I just updated my TWLoader via FBI, it tries to update as soon as it boots when after that it sends me to Home screen without any error message. Any ideas?

    It does load (relatively) fast for me (and I mean that it does not stay in a blackscreen after entering the castle), and that was with the U version of SM64DS.

    You can get the latest TWLoader version, in which you can update the bootstrap to the latest unofficial version avaliable through the options screen.

    Twloader 2.2.3 is crashing for me when I reach/move to a really big ds game (556mb)
    on my new 3ds xl.
    It didn't use to crash when doing this on 2.2.2 though.

    I updated TWLoader through the homebrew browser and downloaded the newest bootsrap.nds. I placed that and my roms inside sd/roms/nds but i still get a white screen when i load a game like Smea's Portal or Super Mario 64 DS. Is there anything im doing wrong?

    Did you get the latest nds-bootstrap.ini file, and installed the latest TWLNAND side CIA?

    Are you using scene releases (Trashman)? If so, which version are you using? I ask because this'll clarify if the game not loading when entering the castle is an SD speed issue or not. If it is then that's rather disappointing since my wife bought me a new one for Christmas.

    Latest TWLoader .7z file. It's in "sdroot/_nds/". Put it in "sd:/_nds/".

    To install the TWLoader-TWLNAND side.cia, i just copy it to my clipboard and paste it into "TWL NAND" and then install it right?

    No. It's a CIA file. You install it.
