    Hi! For some time now I have been using my M3 DS Real for music only and I was wondering if there is a way to use Moonshell2 as a system firmware.

    If not, which is the smallest firmware for M3 that can load Moonshell2 without DLDI patching?

    It's called kernel, or UI, or "thing that is not firmware".
    Why not just use M3Sakura? You should be able to put MS2 if you want...but I don't remember much about the M3 anymore since I never ended up getting one. IIRC you should be able to convert a pre-dldi patched .nds file into the correct file that boots on the M3 first... Try looking through Xenon++'s tools, I'm pretty sure there is one in there.

    Alright, thanks

    Well, yeah, Sakura can load MS2 just fine but, its quite heavy (about 90MB) and I want to put as much of my music files in the Micro SD as possible.

    Also, I can't use any DLDI patch since the only computer I have access right now uses linux (and besides, it's not mine, so I dont want to mess around with it) and all DLDI patches that I found are in .exe.


    I will get a DSTWO, but, not any time soon.

    ._. M3Sakura can play mp3 songs as well...There are ways to dldi patch on linux as well.

    It's also grossly out of date.

    Anyway, in this past days, while gbatemp was down, I decide to give a try to WoodYS (Alternative firmwares thread), it work perfectly fine and loads Mooshell2 without needing DLDI patch. DSCovery and YSM3 should work as well since they use the same loader, but i didn't test then yet.
