    Hi! I tried installing it and running a game but the bottom screen says an error occurred please press and hold the power button. Does anyone know what I did wrong?

    To fix the error, boot into SysNAND, run FBI, then install the TWLNAND side CIAs.

    Your CFW might not be patching TWL_FIRM, then.
    Try switching to Luma.

    TWLoader v6.0.0 has been released!

    NOTE: Even if you updated through TWLoader, please overwrite the _nds folder on the SD card root with the one in the .7z file, to include GameYob.

    What's new?
    • Support for GameBoy/Super GB/GB Color ROMs added! (loaded via GameYob)
      You can change ROM type in the DSi (START menu) and Wood themes.
      ROMs go in sd:/roms/gb.
      Box art goes in sd:/_nds/twloader/boxart/gb, size should be 128x115, should be in .png format, and must be named game.(s)gb(c).png.
    • (partial) 3DS theme added!
    • DSiWare CIAs can now be installed+loaded!
      You can launch a CIA like a .nds game. They go in the same folder as the .nds files.
    • You can now change sound frequency from 32kHz to 48kHz for higher sound quality in DS games!
    • Option for bootstrap loading screen has been added. (Currently only for unofficial bootstrap.)
    • You can now access Settings in the DSi theme's START menu.
    • Animated TWLoader logo in Settings screen.
    • Banner text is centered again (except for (S)GB(C) ROM names).
    • NTR/TWL mode settings is now simply known as NTR mode settings, since it's mainly for NTR DS games.
    • Turkish and Finnish (by Uupo03) translations added.
    Improvements
    • Upgraded from sf2dlib to pp2d!
    • Some translation improvements. (by @Jolty95)
    Bug fixes (Some may not be listed.)
    • Starting GBARunner2 no longer changes the SD ROM path.
    • Some minor ones.
    Known bugs
    • When updating bootstrap, the screens are slightly glitchy.
    • When changing the LED color or using the Search feature, the console hard crashes (with the Rosalina button combo not working).
    • Touch screen controls do not work in GameYob, due to the TWLNAND side starting with NTR mode touch screen, so you'll need to press R to open the menu.

    Ok, for some bugs I found with the new version:
    -updating the bootstraps via the app results in a weird graphical glitch that returns to normal after the updating happens
    -there is a way to displace the tracking bar at the bottom of the screen to the right, I dunno how I did it but I think it happens when you go multiple times to the settings menu
    -it seems that rarly, going to the setting menu crashes the app

    Excellent update, Thanks! Although on the other hand, now with the Ugopwn boom you do not plan to improve more SRLoader? I still see it very crude and TWLoader very advanced

    Why does Mario & Luigi Partners in Time hang on a white screen?
    It says compatible. Could the rom be corrupted?

    Does the new Super GB feature use the original version or Super Game Boy 2?

    TWLLoader itself lags on my N3DS in-menu. It freezes on and off even without a game running, and sound lags on just about every game I've attempted to play.

    I'm using the standard default settings with mkds as a donor rom. Mostly just want to get Adance Wars Days of Ruin to run smooth.

    What uses does this homebrew have when you already have a flashcard? I ask because when I downloaded it I saw files that should be put in the sd of the flashcard and I want to know what is its usefulness.

    Try formatting your SD card to FAT32 with 32kb cluster size.
    You can launch a CIA like a .nds game. They go in the same folder as the .nds files.
    idk what version GameYob uses.
    Well, you just have a GUI with a higher resolution, box art that can be downloaded and 3D depth. ;)

    A little update.
    If you're still using a TWLoader version prior to v6.0.0, you can now update it in TWLoader itself!

    TWLoader will install it (if not already installed), and then launch it.
