    I know of two ways of getting to the ds main menu(where download play and pictochat is)
    -you can use a firmwire as an .nds
    -or you could use ysmenu, push start and click the menu

    There are some problems with that, the only .nds firmwire I could find is an original. I tried dumping my own firmwire but i don't know how to trun the bin into a nds.
    The problem with ysmenu is that it's to complicated, I want a simpler way.
    Right now I have the original firmware as _DS_MSHL.nds but it doesn't have the birghtness controls of a ds light.

    I found the info from this other thread

    I'm hoping some r4 users can help me

    It's not possible to bypass the R4's autoboot feature, so your only option is the Phat-only firmware.nds file. You'll have to live with a single brightness control.

    If you just want brightness control, press L at the game selection screen.
