    I've got an M3i that I'm using on a DSi, and I can't seem to get DSLinux to start. I just get white screens. I've reinstalled it 3 different times, and I've used M3 Sakura, Touchpod (whatever the alternate loader is), DSOrganize, and DS Kiosk to load it and it all ends up the same. I've tried using different buttons, or the touch screen to start it (that's what's been suggested to me in other places) but it doesn't change anything. To be quite honest, I still don't understand what DLDI is completely and how to work with it, but I know the M3i auto-patches and I often hear I never need to worry about it. I've tried starting it without DLDI patching, I've tried No-Patching it, but it's all the same.

    I've looked all over for answers, but none of them seemed relevant because I couldn't find anyone with this problem that uses the M3i. Most of the people I see with the same problem are using cards that are unsupported, but I know the M3 Real is supported, and I assumed the M3i was close enough. I'm fairly new to most of this though.

    This seems like an M3i specific problem, so I figured this would be a good place to ask. No better place than GBAtemp, so I'm told. I'll ask on the DSLinux forums as well.

    Thanks for any help,

    I think DSLinux requires both a Linux PC and a RAM expansion.

    It has instructions on how to install it on Windows, so Linux isn't required.

    Here's the source, straight from the DSLinux Wiki:

    Umm, DSLinux requires extra ram, did you even read the tutorials? The DSi doesn't have Slot-2, and DSi mode isn't hacked yet, so no DSLinux on a DSi ATM.

    Way to disinformation. DSLinux does not require additional RAM, it's just highly recommended. This is a DSi compatibility problem, not a lack of RAM problem. Did you even read this thread?
