Using decrypt9's newest version that allows dumping of NDS games, I decided to see if I could dump the ROM of my Action Replay Cart and see what's inside.
Decrypt9 dumped the ROM as AWTE01.nds and when I booted with the emulator DeSmuME, it turns out Action Replay's rom boots as Game & Watch :O

Now I'm wondering two things...
One, is there a way to restore Game&Watch to boot on the NDS?
Or is there a way to restore the Action Replay to boot on a emulator?

My Action Replay actually booted into this every so often. It's the game it shows up as on the DSi/3DS menu if memory serves.
That is correct. I was so shocked when the game showed up instead of the AR menu. Was so disappointed when I couldn't replicate it. Iirc it's the smallest DS game, that's why they chose it.

blasty did a writeup on this several years ago, covers it nicely.

That's pretty interesting. Don't dsi compatible flash carts use this method?
Also, for their Wii Action Replay, they relied on the letter bomb exploit to run their software... Do you think they will ever utilize a different exploit to get a 3DS action replay?
