    I've been trying for a while to be ale to use homebrew on my G6 Real but I don't know how to get it to work. Does anybody have step by step instructions on how to set it up and use it?

    G6 Real is a DS slot1 cart (goes into the DS game slot).

    Are you trying to play .gba homebrews? That won't work no matter how hard you try on a slot1 cart. You can only run DS-specific homebrew on the G6 Real.

    No slot1 card can run GBA code. You need a slot2 card for that (goes into the GBA slot).

    If you ARE trying to run a DS homebrew and it's not working.......don't know. From what I understand, the G6 Real auto patches DLDI, so that shouldn't be an issue. Is your G6 updated to the latest firmware?

    There is a patch you can use for G6 just in case the auto-patching doesn't work, but you shouldn't really need it (also found at the above link)


    Hope that helps, at least a little.

    Yeah, thanks! I had finally realized what I was doing wrong so after that it became really easy.
