    When i start up my ds fire link it doesnt autoboot like an R4. I have to select it within the DS "OS". There is a Icon and text, both of which say "DS Fire Link" . Would it be possible to change this icon and text to something custom like "Jokers N-Card" or something similar? I used google and tryed here and couldnt find anything that would answer my question. Thanks.

    no

    ...but you can skip it via auto mode setting within the nintendo config menu

    ds menu-config-spanner-boot-auto mode.

    that will boot xmenu, skipping the ds menu.

    yeah i know about skipping it via the nintendo menu. i just thought it would be cool to have your own logo. tryed opening xmenu.dat ina hexeditor but couldnt even find a reference to "DS Fire Link". Dont know much about hexediting though.

    i believe its hardwired in the card, no matter what firmware you use the ds menu button stays the same.

    Just place two BMPs in the SYSTEM dir. There are other threads concerning skins in this forum. Needs to be a certain size and placement of text, etc.
