    I have noticed that R4iRTS MoonShell2 reset launches /loader.eng. So I had an experiment to apply it to general purpose kernel switcher.

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/jhjdlxlmmwx/M3R_R4i_r7.7z

    How to install/use:
    Put all files to your TF then launch /_system_/*.nds from anywhere.

    Below are useful utilities:
    http://filetrip.net/f9907-M3-Kaura-Language-Builder-1-0.html
    This is M3 Kaura lng file builder (I analyzed format).
    Why I made this? I wanted to localize to Japanese. JP932.lng is built with this.
    But there is a issue: JP932.lng isn't usable until you copy inside of /SYSTEM/font/CP936/ to /SYSTEM/font/CP1250/.

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/nmzwizzgewz/m3dec.7z
    This is m3dec(kernel header decrypter)/m3patch(card check interceptor).
    Once ago, Rudolph made M3R_iTDS_PP2 to patch M3 kernels, but I felt it is not so good for batch scripting.
    So this program decrypts header automatically. Also, patch files are very small.

    How to upgrade R4i:
    Put R4i.sys in the same folder as m3dec then launch SakuraMultiBoot.bat.
    As I have made m3patch, I'll remove the vbs from M3R_R4i in the next release. Done.

    Well I'd help translate it from translator English to native English if I understood the translator English (which is weird, because I normally understand translator English)

    m3dec/m3patch stopped.

    Yes, I know M3R_iTDS_PP2 is a good program and "iTouchDS on M3Real" does use it, but I should keep his method "underground"...

    So "iTouchDS on M3Real" requires vbscripts. I reimplemented the scheme in C.

    I didn't get a chance to download the file before Xenon++ removed it, mind PM me the file if you had downloaded it?

    I've got a sneaky suspicion Xenon++ may have found a way to allow Sakura to load roms on any flashcart, hence that file removal - hence "keeping this method underground".
    I'm pretty certain some other member claimed to have used Rudolph's M3R_iTDS_PP2 to achieve this (I haven't seen the username logged on for a long, long time), but that post was totally removed from this forum almost immediately.

    Wait, the itouch can load Sakura?

    Also all of the .nds files in my "_system_" folder take me to the R4i RTS firmware for some reason.

    Well, update /*.nds
    r4 had a bug.

    Or just remove /_ds_menu.sys

    bin/*.nds has to be in / of TF
    bin/_system_/*.nds can be anywhere

    BTW reuploaded m3dec.
    I had a quarrel with the author of M3R_iTDS_PP2 and got upset, so have decided to break "secretness".
