    I'm a linux user, and while normally I'd be able to run a windows program by emulating it, DSLazy uses the .NET 2.0 framework which isn't very compatible right now. It gets really annoying having to reboot to windows everytime I need to arm7 patch a .nds file (which is very often) so are there any alternative methods (linux or windows w/o .NET) for unpacking and repacking these files?

    If you have WINE installed you can use DS File Unpacker. I haven't got it to work though.

    DS lazy and DSbuff both use a program called NDStool to work. Being an open source tool (indeed part of devkitarm) it has a linux port
