    DS code DLDI patcher

    Now you can DLDI patch while on your DS

    npc3232 has released a DS port of Chism's original DLDI command line patcher.


    1. Patch the dldi patcher with a dldi patch of your choice and copy it to the card.

    2. Copy the patch you want to patch with to the root of the flash card, and rename it "patch.dldi".

    3. Run the application and type the location and name of the file to be DLDI patched.

    Note this probably will not work properly with the EZ5 due to the header alteration requirements of most homebrew.

    This works quite nice, although it is a bit annoying that you hsv to type in the full unix path...

    And so have other cards like the CycloDS Evolution (which actually was first) and the Supercard DS One.

    But many people still use other (mostly older) cards with DLDI, and this makes the whole thing a bit easier... I think.

    It's certainly handy to switch between cards with only one MicroSD card.

    Indeed, this will definitely come in handy for my slot 2 SC.

    What this needs (aside for a file browser) is the ability to turn auto-patching on and off. If an app loaded form slot-1 with the DLDI for your slot-2 cart doesn't get autopatched when it's loaded, you can still access the files on the slot-2. It would be great to have a solution right on your flash card for muxing/unmuxing the DLDI magic string so that your slot-1 card doesn't autopatch the file when you load it from there. And then later unmux the string so that you can use the same NDS file to acces stuff on your slot-1.

    Well, it'd still be better to simply have a dual DLDI system where ROMs can be patched with two separate DLDI drivers at the same time. Where the hell is that already?
