    Can anyone please help me? I looked at the instructions for the unofficial English Sakura hack and it says copy 'System' to the root of your card. I did, so now what?!

    EDIT: If you were in the same position as me, here's how to run the M3 Sakura firmware on your CycloDS in plain English:

    1. Download this http://www.adrive.com/home/downloadfile/39873905/d/1
    2. Drag and drop the "System" folder onto the root of your card (make it visible so Sakura can see it)
    3. Drag and drop "M3 Sakura.nds" onto your card and you're done

    Optional Step:

    4. To use Sakura as your Media button, simply rename it "moonshell.nds" and put it in the Moonshell folder

    I've reuploaded it with the English version (hopefully) and I've replaced the DLDI file with the CycloDS one so homebrew support is much better.


    Unsupporting homebrew (using Cyclo DLDI):
    DSO Bday vers
    Phidias

    I could send you a pre-hacked version of M3sakura if you like.

    What do you mean by pre-hacked version of sakura? I thought everything came in that gbatemp download for the unofficial hacked english version?

    I see it as a better working version of Moonshell with nicer GUI.

    Thank you very much. You were more help than that massive M3 Sakura FAQ thread. All I needed was the M3Sakura.nds hombrew which is not included in the "M3Sakura_Ver111_ENG Bundle Pack" GBAtemp download for some pointless reason. I've finally got it up and running on my CycloDS now. [​IMG]

    Yes it can.

    And thats all it is, a better looking Moonshell and nothing more on anything but the M3 Real and iTouch.

    So all it does is run .dpgs? Nothing notable?

    Smoother and a better playback of vids (Not sure, but that's what I heard.)

    Nicer Menu

    And a better looking music player.

    So, like everyone said, it's better version of Moonshell, and some improvements.

    actually the playback of .dpg video is kinda lacking compared to moonshell (rapid movement will distort the video and make some boxy artifacts) but, does an awesome job decoding the audio, better than moonshell.

    Ehh...I don't know...I download this thing and everything still looks like it is in japanese...and when I tried to run moonshell, doesn't seem to work b/c I ended up replacing the moonshell file with the sakura to use it as a media program?

    I am kinda lost but ok [​IMG] I believe you. Has anyone tried it with the newest firmware? My cyclod won't run it b/c the sakura file keeps saying error using supercard ds 1.
