    xdelta is a patching format, the old standby of IPS fell far short when it came time to hack DS games and many hackers used xdelta instead.

    There are two versions of xdelta that were used. The current line you can find at http://xdelta.org/ and will probably be what you want. There is an older version available http://www.evanjones.ca/software/xdelta-win32.html which was used for some earlier hacks, and one or two GUI programs.

    Speaking of GUI programs both of those are command line programs so if you are not comfortable with them then http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/598/ or http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/704/ should be good.
