    I was wondering if you could possible autoboot a homebrew app, so when you boot up Acekard it loads the homebrew app?

    1. ARM9 starts with 0x02000450
    2. akmenu4.nds is patched with ak2_sd.dldi
    If two conditions are met it will work

    Rename the .nds 'boot.nds'

    Well as far as I know, NDSes whose ARM9 starts from 0x02000450 are
    YSMenu
    hbmenu

    in mshl2tools,
    reset_mse (MoonShell2 Alternative Loader) -> You can change "/moonshl2/reload.dat" to any nds filename
    FavLauncher
    XenoFile

    In English?

    Are you trying to use tech talk with me to confuse me? Because I am not falling for it.

    No, that just means you could use something like the resetmse or his favlauncher to autoboot homebrew, or boot to Xenofile and run something from there.

    Yes, ARM9 address thing is so difficult. CannonFoddr went through hard days in creating MAIO.
    Anyway you can think that normal homebrew cannot be autobooted on AK2i.

    My understanding of it is, in an NDS file, there is an ARM7 and ARM9 section, and the ARM9 section can start in different places in different NDS files. But for an NDS to work as an autoboot on the AK2i, the ARM9 section needs to start at a specific position, and for most homebrew it doesn't. I hope that is easier to understand that Xenon++'s "techy" description [​IMG]

    theres a setting in the AKAIO menu that lets you autoot the last rom launched seems a bit easier than all the code and stuff [​IMG]
