    You can use a program like DSBuff to change the header of the ROM. Just open the file in DSBuff and change the title (it appears in the embedded description-box to the left of the icon-viewer) and then save it (press the save-icon. It's a floppy disc). Your ROM should now have another "internal name". I hope it helped!

    Btw. You'll find DSBuff if you look in the Downlaod-section I think.

    I was kidding. See bottom of previous post.

    Actually I hate it when people do that. Especially those LMGTFY spammers.

    I will point out RomeR:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=223

    That is a somewhat older version and it was forked once or twice but it should still work. Also while that was aimed more at homebrew I seem to recall rominator gained the functionality for commercial games.

    Failing that you could always use a hex editor and something like ndsts to fix the "damage" you do to the header or you could even fix it by hand

    I have the custom CRC16 loaded into my hex editor:
