    Forgive me of my naiveness but I really wanted to know if through some kind of patching or firmware hack if you could transfer a whole game to a friend via download play? I think I've seen this question before but I failed to see the answer.....

    The DS has 4 MB of RAM. The smallest commercial games are 8 MB in size. Therefore, the answer is no because there's nowhere to stick the rest of the game on your friend's DS.

    Now, if both of you were using a flash cart, couldn't someone write a file transfer program? I seem to remember someone announcing a utility along those lines, although it was very slow.

    Hmm if both had a flashcart, both could go and get it the way everyone else does a great deal easier too I might add.

    Transferring it between two DSs would be like mindlessly and pointlessly painful.

    DS2DS is an app for the DS that sends files from a flashcart to flashcart.
    It's in an European language (i think french) but I was able to quickly create a translation patch...
    I don't know if it is by wifi or just the local wireless though... you should try it out first.

    There is a program called Combox that is in English. It allow filetransfer between 2 DS.
