    I want to make a homebrew program and put it on to an SD card without the need for a flashcart. I am planning on converting my program to a .nds file for people to download and put onto an SD card.

    Thank you for your time! :nds:

    Unless they have a DSi and Sudokuhax, they won't be able to run it.

    It's free. But very few people got it. It should work with 3DS as well.
    I don't see anything special about DSCraft.

    I mean all you have to do with DScraft and some other homebrew games is download it and put it onto an SD card.

    Thanks for your help :D

    Then why bother asking at all, if you're getting a flashcard? ¬_¬

    Because if my homebrew program requires everyone to have a flashcart, it causes a lot of inconvenience:mellow:

    I'm surprised you can code for the DS yet you don't know this.

    There are ways to boot homebrew via WiFi without the need for a flashcart, but those only work on the original DS and they're very limiting in terms of available space. Everyone even remotely interested in NDS homebrew already has a flashcart so it's not really an inconvenience.

    i wouldnt say the DSi-hax were free, as you needed to have spent some $ on buying the exploitable game(s) before their removal from the shop.

    It is an exploit for the dsi using the game sudoku, but a quick google would have told you that
