    I wired up a nand mod on my dsi with 30 guage magnet wire. i used a plug that has 5 pins to make a permanent mod, so i got one for clk,cmd,dat0 and 2 ground. i wired up the other wires that plug in directly to the SD readers pins, so its almost like a usb cable the plugs in the dsi now. i kept my wires very short, although i have an issue getting the drive to show up on a pc. the dsi boots notmally when disconnected from my adapter, and boots into error code 0000fe00 when connected. any advise? should i use thicker wire or solder to a sd card instead to manually plug into the reader?

    That's good (the console is recognizing something else is keeping internal storage busy); assuming you already double checked the pinouts, try with an SD reader using a different chipset

    Also, you said the wires are short (good), but are they approximately the same length?

    i think some are significantly shorter than others, maybe a cm or two. i can try making them longer\shorter to be the same. also worth noting, the SD card reader, i used it sucessfully with a 3ds nand mod once, so i dont know if itd be different compatability for dsi?

    I'm not sure that 2 cm would be a significant difference, but yes, compatibility is a bit iffy - you are using both reader and chip outside their intended specifications

    (You're leaving the console powered on the bootrom error, right?)
