    I was just wondering if there's anyway to change the Acekard's currently displayed game (on the home screen) to something else?


    It currently displays at Atama de Do! but I want to change it to some other game that I like instead.

    No, there is no way to do that.

    The ID shown is from the AK firmware. In other words the game is in the loader. It'll be changed if the loader is changed, currently no other way around that.

    I know it's in the loader itself but was curious if there's anyway to modify it on your own to have it display what you wanted. if there is an easy way, maybe a step by step guide on the hex, i would like tutorial.

    The info is checked when the system boots (which is why it fakes itself as a real game). If you mess up even one tiny portion, your 3/DS/i system will no longer boot that cart. This is why people haven't really shown an interest in doing this themselves.

    Until you can provide any evidence, I'm calling bullshit.

    For each of the updates that has been put out, I have looked for information on the game (i.e. the header info) and NONE of them were found.
