    Just get a DSi compatible flashcart if you want to play roms.

    The one on the ebay listing I bought, do I need the micro sd to start off or will that be my storage for homebrew, roms, etc. (I did alot of Wii stuff.)

    Update: Got the microSD in prerperation.

    From what I can gather, Micro holds the firmware, clips onto DS Sized card, goes in, runs its course, from then on you keep it in and use the Micro to hold whatever you use be it software or emulators?

    How am I doing so far?

    I might be backwards but I always read things 28 times, I have gone back to splinter cell XBOX in terms of modding.


    OK, roger..

    The firmware files go in the root of your sd card and your roms to. Then you put that in your DSi.

    What happened to gbatemp that people seriously suggest to buy crappy r4 cards from hidden listings on ebay?
    DO NOT EVER DO THAT!

    It works but you can get more for almost the same money and you don't have any guarantee if it doesn't work because the item isn't allowed to be sold on ebay.
