    Could someone possibly explain to me how this works exactly? I just purchased my Cyclo DS Evolution yesterday and I already have downloaded some homebrew applications. I just want to know what ones I should get and how to work them. I'm still a bit confused to how it works and I am a first time buyer...Thanks guys. [​IMG]

    Check a few FAQs from the main CycloDS website, but it's usually as simple as downloading the homebrew application, and extracting all the files to the root of your SD card. If you prefer, you can put the .nds files that come along with the homebrew downloads into a seperate folder named "homebrew" for example.
    That way, when you boot up your Cyclo, and go into the rom list, you will have a folder called homebrew, and you will be able to launch your homebrew games from it.


    As far as what games/applications too download, I would check this thread:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=70463
    and this thread:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=82722

    But, my personal favorites include StillAlive, Videogame Hero, Moonshel, DSOraganize (if you have wifi), WC3: TD, and Whee!.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if the Cyclo DS needed a special recognition program to recognize the homebrew apps or set the settings or something. But apparently it's just as simple as load and click. Thanks!

    Yeah, it's way easier than I thought it would be when I first got my Cyclo.
    Glad I could help.
