    To use TTmenu as main and wood4TT as boot, rename the TTmenu.dat from the wood4TT firmware into *.nds (you can put whatever you want, as long as you change the extension to .nds)
    load the *.nds file that you made whenever you feel like loading wood4TT.

    If you want to do the opposite (using wood4TT as main and TTmenu as boot) you rename the TTmenu's TTmenu.dat into *.nds

    you have to rename that part yourself. when you do, it'll probably give you a warning - ignore and click yes.

    TTmenu.dat -> (file name).nds

    get it?

    Go to the Organise button (on the top left hand corner, just below the "address bar") -> Folder and Search Options -> View tab -> Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"

    What is the reason to doing that? Dual boot?
    The wood 1.25 is very OLD now...

    True WoodTT is old, but will still plays some new games that you will need to wait for the updates for. I like the dual boot option. Right now WoodTT will play MLB 2011 fine but it will not load in YS or regular TT. I have had other games do the same. I know once Retro posts his updates at the begining of the month all will be fine, But the dual boot option is great to have. WoodTT also boots games so much faster as well. If you are still looking to make your card dual boot, do a search a few months ago in this forum someone posted the files to make a dual boot card. That where I got them from.

    If you want to create a multi-boot on the DSTT, just pick a primary firmware, example: WoodTT, just keep that at DSTT.DAT, then rename all the other firmware to something .nds. So for Ysmenu would be YSmenu.nds and DSTT firmware would be DSTT.NDS and you can boot them from Wood.
