    DSOrganize can download, the browsers in DSLinux can download, Bunjalloo can download. Take your pick.

    I was wondering... is there a DS web browser that can download stuff off the internet right to the DS micro SD card? So you don't have to download homebrew on a PC and then put it on a micro SD card(i know a lot of homebrew downloads are .zip or .rar. or .7z, so here WinZip for the DS) If that link doesn't work, here's the URL: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=923

    yeah thats the best thing right now, but if the file is like 20mb+ it wont finish downloading, it'll just stop at like 16mb and say its 1 mb or w/e

    I use DSLinux to download files
    and I think there is even a bittorrent downloader for DSLinux as well.

    Gamebygame formerly known as Dealwoot. Takes 3-4 days to arrive.

    EDIT: Haha I was reading another topic and I thought I was posting it in the correct section.

    I wouldn't bother at the moment. Most web browsers are somewhat unstable and may damage your card.

    DSOrganize doesn't work on my Acekard 2i, the touch screen doesn't respond.

    The only known way to allow the touch screen is to turn off Wireless Communications which pretty much defeats the purpose of having the internet browser.

    Wouldn't downloading be painfully slow on a DS? And no anti-virus too...

    http://dslinux.org/

    I'm sure you can figure out which link to click to get to the downloads page. I'd also highly suggest you check out the DSLinux Wiki article on "running DSLinux" as it will tell you which version you need to get. You'll probably have to use archive.org to get to it since the wiki is currently down.

    The best one that doesn't get enough credit is Bunjallo by quirkysoft. It can download and extract files to the SD. You can even save images. It's kinda bland but also doesn't have many bugs.

    Also, I tried DSOrganize on my DS instead of my DSi, and the touch screen worked. I could connect to wifi, but the browser didn't load any pages. So, i tried the wifi chat room, & it froze! I had to replace all the firmware, and some SAVs were deleted! I think I'm done with DSOrganize.

    As an administrator of the #DSOrganize IRC i wonder if you were using the unstable version 3.2 or the proper version 3.1129 either way i have no regrets on your decision to be done with DSO as its a 2 year old dead project that should have R.I.P. a long long time ago. Do use Bunjaloo its support for downloading and extracting right to your card is unlike any other homebrew browser and in some ways better then the official Opera browser itself, as for DSLinux i would only suggest it if you were familiar with a terminal based Linux OS as in simple Bash commands and such, if you are then by all means yes use it as you can screen into a actual Linux box and download from there and then transfer your files direct to your ds without ever leaving your DS. There is a nice tutorial on how to setup screen with DSLinux at the DSLinux.org wiki as well.
