    Before I did this, I used to get 2 white screens on my Supercard when opening the DS Browser.

    So I opened up the DS Browser with DSlazy, I changed the arm7.bin file with the arm7.bin file from Crash Boom Bang!. I was surprised when the Browser actually booted on my Supercard until it got to this screen.

    (Taken with an emulator but this is what it looks like on my ds.)

    I can't get past that screen though.

    By the way THIS IS SLOT 2 ONLY.

    Normally I get two white screens on my ds with the browser. And I'm using the Supercard SD.

    EDIT: If you open the "english.lng" file with a hex editor, you can edit the text in the browser.
    Example:

    The arm7.bin files are likely to be exactly the same. The ARM7 processor only takes care of sound/WiFi and such. In fact, seeing as it worked afterwards, they were probably exactly the same.

    Yes, well done, you can hex-edit the browser to change the text. All the icons happen to be png files too.

    And browsers don't work on the ds without more RAM. The DS doesn't have enough RAM to store and render pages at the same time.

    Bascially, you're never going to get it to work on a Slot-2 alone.

    Why not?
    I mean my G6 has 32 megs of RAM and so does M3, SC and probably more slot-2 devices do too. Now your going to say "but you can't use it" then I will say "look at DSLinux it can use the 32 megs of RAM on most slot-2 devices and if it can then why can't someone make some sort of patch that can make use of that extra RAM."

    I think it's not that easy to use the RAM of those Slot2-devices.
    You would need to implent complete routins of reading and replace the old ones.
    Also you would need to write your code in assembler , which makes it even harder. ^^

    You better read this and try to understand that without the source of the Opera Browser, it's impossible to do it :/

    You need a slot 1 and a slot 2. Or you can buy the real one. Those are the only options.

    Trust me its a total piece of crap, a contract obligation for doing the Wii version. Its slow as hell and seeing most sites have flash you can't even go on most sites.
