    There is a proof of concept homebrew using PAlib and liblobby. It's so slow that it's unusable though.

    Why would you want to, it's way quicker to remove the card, plug it into a pc, copy the files, remove it from the pc, plug it back into the ds, power up than it is to stransfer anything over wifi to the ds. If you're thinking of transfering a game over wifi, then be warned, it would take HOURS.

    it would take around (if my calculations are correct) three and a half hours to transfer a 16mb file. [​IMG] So if you wanted to transfer a 64mb game, it would take 14 hours.

    Doesn't also require both DSs to be flashed as well?

    I dont know...maybe if you spent a a couple of hundred USD on one of those wireless wifi SD cards for each DS you want to transfer to or from. I dont think that is worth it all though....

    A 5 dollar USB card reader is a much better and far more reasonable investment. With the 95+ dollars that you save, you could buy about 8 gigs worth of memory for your flashcard.
