    Is there a thread(i can't find any) that serves as a tutorial and/or guide on how to get started?

    I just got myself a DS lite and wanted to join in the ROM playing.

    personally i wouldn't run a rom found through a google search. while the bricker never made it over it is possible someone has it offered as a rom you could end up downloading. you could always use dslazy tho to scan for the bricker, assuming a modified version isn't being passed around. i still believe that if you don't have a reliable source to get your games from you shouldn't be into this hobby.

    now with that said, this shouldn't scare you but you should be aware that it exists. try spending a day downloading files from the gbatemp download center. there is a vast amount of homebrew games and applications you can easily get lost in.

    as already stated, use akaio 1.3 final: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=130921

    I know Google isn't the way to look for ROMS but I didn't wanna put a website or PM him cause I'm Lazy. [​IMG] Guess I'll PM him.

    they will ship priority mail. they have a good staff and a pretty good return policy if you speak to them like an adult =). the deal right now is if you buy an ak2 you get a free 1gb msd with it. i know its not much but its something.

    Alright seems good.

    So essentially I would need the the ak2, the msd, and a regular card reader?
