    Is it possible to send over both an emulator and a ROM? Most popular DS homebrew apps are emulators, and it would be a shame if we can't use them with this exploit.

    I don't have a lot of experience with NDS coding... probably the OP of this thread could explain how he done to make Grand dad working on the NDS ... probably he used just the NES emulator with the grand dad romhack

    Even if you find a 4 MB commerical rom, it wouldn't work.
    There's only 4 MB for both the game rom and the game's working memory combined.

    Usual DS Download Play games are no more than 3 MB, so the game still has 1 MB of RAM to actually work with.
    So even if you find a 3 MB rom, it must be one that uses less than 1 MB of RAM.
    This is only true for certain homebrew and Nintendo's multiboot demos, such as the demos from Nintendo Channel on the Wii.

    So basically, there's finally a way to run those Nintendo Channel ROMs again! (Plus homebrew and any 3 MB ROMs.)

    You'll need an older TWLoader version (don't know the exact version).
    You'll need a flashcard for now.

    It was me who made that rom. I already made it some time ago as a joke. I simply build nesds with the rom in the arm9. Since one can't use nitrofs or dldi, and this didn't use that, it was perfect to demonstrate with.

    Complete tutorial to make this to Haxxstation to work on TWLoader:

    What you need:
    DSPatch
    Download Station Volume 1 (USA) - i will not give any links of this because its copyrighted content... try to find it


    Step1: Compile your Custom Haxxstation with your Homebrew app do you want to use
    -Go to your PC and download DSPatch
    -Extract the Zip file to somewhere easy to reach with your windows terminal (something like this C:/dspatch/) but you can extract to your desktop if you want
    -Open CMD (aka terminal/console/shell)
    -Navigate to the directory you extracted (use like this "cd NAMEOFTHEFOLDER") ...btw be sure if your folders don't have spaces on the name
    -Now just use this command "dspatch download_station.nds rom_to_boot.nds result.nds"
    -Its an example what you should do
    [​IMG]
    Step2: Copy the "result.nds" to your 3ds SDCard
    -Just grab your result.nds to your SD:/roms/nds/

    Step3: Configure and run from TWLoader

    -Open TWLoader
    -Go to the configuration Icon
    -Press R
    -Set Bootstrap has unOfficial
    -Press Y to update your bootstrap
    -Go back
    -Run your custom download statation (aka HaxxStation)

    (Have fun :D )
    --------------

    There some place we can download Grand dad NDS? Or there are some "copyright issues" ? :S

    This is really cool! I tried this out, and I have a quick question: can I insert multiple roms into one download station?
