    I thought you already set MKDS as donor ROM?

    I checked the list and it didn't mention that I needed a donor ROM, so I didn't set one.

    Dude, all you had to do was read back a couple of pages and you'd have seen that it needs a donor ROM ;)

    Yoshis Island DS worked in previous bootstrap version but in last released (0.6.0 rev 2) the top-screen turns red after Intro

    Or they could include it in the list
    Proper documentation prevents confusion.

    It's also in the instructions, but I guess you installed TWLoader before the donor part was added to the instructions.

    I did, but I went to the list to check for what I needed to make it work

    Checking the list, every other game that requires a donor ROM mentioned this requirement. Pokemon HG/SS fails to mention this requirement in order to work. That requirement should be included like every other game.

    I think next version should fix the random freezes.

    Yes, finally Pokémon Platinum works, I've been waiting for this moment since December 2016!

    I would like to know, can I use the same MKDS rom as donor for multiple games or will that overwrite my save for my other game?

    Is there a tool where I can patch games for online play?

    I am using Acekard 2 (non (i) version), and I experienced the same issue where once TWLoader it only shows the 3DS card (sd:/)

    But I have a found a workaround:

    • Downloaded the latest version of akaio, and rename 'ak4menu.nds' to 'YSMenu.nds'
    • Replace/rename the 'YSMenu.nds' on the Flashcart SD
    • Load 'Add Games' in TWLoader, wait while it boots into the Akaio menu.
    • Manually load the _nds/twloader.nds rom.
    • Now it should list all files in the flashcart (fat:/)
    • Add your games, when your done, rename 'YSMenu.nds' or move it to a backup folder.
    • Copy back the original 'YSMenu.nds' and the games should load now.
    I guess the problems lies with YSMenu?

    Hope this helps others experiencing this issue.

    Edit:
    Also I think we can bypass YSMenu entirely.
    AKAIO can autoload roms, just need to set the rom in __aio/lastsave.ini

    I'm having issues with compiling myself, so I cannot test this...

    I'm having a problem. I'm trying to update to bootstrap 0.6.0 but when i use the built-in bootstrap updater (5.1.1) it stays there forever and if i close and re-open the app then it says "no version available" and won't update. If I try to update manually, It gives me an arm11 exception.


    It'd be really great if you could tell me where i'm going wrong and/or make a quick guide on manually updating. Thanks in advance! :D


    EDIT: If it helps, I'm on O3DS 11.5 w/B9S using the CIA version of the app

    Hello ,
    I wanted to know why twloader can not be in 3dsx? Because I do not want to install on my 3ds cia for fear of ban ...

    Because userland doesn't have enough access to the system. Also, you won't get banned. I wish people had never started this rumor.

    But you still have to install the TWL CIA for it to work. I think that's what he's talking about.
