    1. Is it possible to get to the home menu from a homebrew game/application
    2. What is Sakura and why is it so great? Will it replace my current GUI? Is it in English?
    3. In the GUI my games show up as being bigger than they are (900 megs) although the real sizes are all under 100 megs. It doesn't affect the space on the card...is it just a glitch in the GUI?

    3) it says Mb (megabits) not MB (megabytes)
    2) m3skaura will fix all the problems of the old loader (lag, unresponsive, ect...) it will replace it, and it supposed to be in english
    1) as far as I know, there is no way besides the off button

    1. Some homebrews have soft-reset implemented, but most of them don't..Firmware itself doesn't have such option..
    2. You have two or three treads that talk about Sakura, check them out..It's a completely new firmware with suspected great touch respond, fast and nice looking, with media-player options..It will be released in english too, but we don't know if it will happen on release date (30.05)
    3. Read what Joe88 wrote..

    actually, i haven't tried this but there should be a way to add soft-reset to homebrews.
    if it's possible, you'd have to manually dldi patch the homebrews, and then put them in the nds folder.
    from there on you can launch it like a commercial rom.

    Hopefully Sakura might implement some of these features.
    The sizes are in megabits, as said.
    See http://www.m3sakura.jp/
    Look at the pictures!

    I would like if Sakura will show file size in megabytes..I'm used to that..
    Now, it's matter of hours until we find everything out..
