    I've tried running DSLinux on my DSi before but all I got was a black screen? Is there any special version for the DSi or is there a way to get it to run on one?

    I think you need a slot-2 device called an EZ-Flash 3in1. Because the DSi doesn't have that, it is unable to run...

    I think.

    I had no idea that it was cause you needed an EZ-Flash 3in1. I just read somewhere on this site that it didn't work.

    I think that's just for the extra RAM, the DSi definitly has more RAM than the Lite, but it won't run DSLinux...

    'Cause flash carts run in DS mode so they can't access the extra RAM and such.

    yeah theres no way currently to run dslinux on dsi, and since development os dslinux is basically dead, there probably wont ever be a way.

    This is off topic, but, Does Soft Reseting an Acekard 2i work on a DSi (DSi 1.4, akAIO 1.6 newest RC), If it does, can you tell me the button combo... I forget.

    Yes, L+R+A+B+Down to get back to AKAIO, L+R+Start+Select in most games (it's a function of the game) to reset back to the game's title screen.

    If you want to soft-reset from homebrew, you'll need AKAIO 1.6 RC1, and it doesn't work with every homebrew, but there's two modes you can switch between in the global patch settings, and one of them should work (except with moonshell, which can just run the akmenu file to get back to AKAIO).
