This is my n00b moment. there are just some things i just don't get. PLEASE, this is a n00b moment! don't be rude, just answer
n00b moment located in spoiler
1) Rom Trimmers: What do they do? i dont get it...
2) Modchips: what do they enable you to do, other than revoke your warranty?
3) Basically, anything to do with hacking and using ADVANCED homebrew on the wii... bootmii, IOSSO or whutever it is, etc.
4) NDS "Flashing": I use R4DS, so what is flashing? also, things like DLDI patching and other things that R4DS overrides.
5) This is TOTALLY offtopic, but how does computer program development work. I know, for a program im interested in designing, most people use Scripting (like Lua or BASIC) and a .DLL file, made with something like SDL. How does one go about making the actual .EXE file?
thx in advance!

1. Ds karts come in standard sizes. such as 8mb, 16mb, 32mb etc. so chances are, when a company develops a game, it's not gonna be exactly those sizes. so they just add in fluff to do so. for example a 33mb game, would have to go on a 64 mb cart having 31mb of nothingness. the rom trimmer simply does away with that.

2. what CAN'T they do lol. they allow u to run roms/isos and homebrew.

3.?

4. flashing basically removes the health warning screen. imo it's not worth doing cuz u can brick ur ds and u only save 1 or 2 seconds.

5. no comment

1. Rom trimmers make .nds files smaller by getting rid of "junk" in them. The game plays like it normally would and everything, it just takes up less space in your memory card. There's absolutely no reason not to trim your roms.
2. Modchips (for the Wii?) let you play games that you downloaded and then burned to a DVD.
3. Um, that's way too vague for me to answer. Look around the Wii Hacking forum, it's there for a reason.
4. Flashing gets rid of the health warning screen and allows you to unbrick your DS in the case it ever bricks.
