    So i'm a homebrew n00b. I've never used a homebrew app before. So my question, what do I need to do to make it work on my R4? I would want to use DSO. Do I need to install some type of firmware or software before using it? What is this Moonshell thing.

    Yes, yes, I know i'm a damn n00b when it comes to this. Please don't verbally abuse me too much lol. [​IMG]

    Just drag and drop the Homebrew file on your MicroSD. And it'll work.

    Over there.
    Have at least 1.10 or 1.11 on your R4, I can't remember which one to run homebrew.

    DSO, just drag and drop.

    Moonshell is a media player that comes with the R4. It plays music, videos, and has an imageviewer. Plays only .dpg videos, however.

    Have fun! [​IMG]

    Awesome. Man, you guys have an answer for everything! [​IMG]

    Umm, so if I store appointments and schedule events and stuff, where does it save? On the microSD card on a .sav file or what?

    It just saves it to DSOrganize.nds

    Basically, the nds file of DSO is it's own savefile.

    The browser is basically perfect.

    I don't think it can do Flash/Youtube though. (someone confirm this?)

    I don't know, but I think that it makes sense that only Slot 2's with RAM expansions can run flash and stuff like that. I dunno, someone verify.

    I wonder if I have the same issue as Warcueid, maybe so. I can not seem to be able to connect anything that would need internet for it. Yeah I have my Wi-Fi and such setup correct. I really did not fuss with it after finding I was unable to click to load it, how ever ndsmail seems to work find except I think I might be unable to send mail which I will look into tomorrow when I wake up along with the DSOrganize problem.

    Youre wrong. It creates the files inside the /dsorganize folder in the subfolders. Ex: It saves reminders in the "reminders" folder, contact info in the "vcard" folder, and so on.
