    Which version are you using? As far as I know, only USA works for now, plus, does it have any patch applied?

    A clean ROM.
    A ROM patched with my xdelta AP patch should also work.

    Does it not work with the latest unofficial version then? I have tried two different clean roms and they didn't work.

    Both TWLoader and SRLoader are the GUI frontends for nds-bootstrap.

    TWLoader use this piece of software in order to launch NDS games.
    You could say that TWLoader is the "Graphical Interface" for nds-bootstrap

    You could say TWloader acts as an menu for the nds bootstrap.

    Yes. Without it, ROMs on SD card won't run.

    TWLoader is not the ROM loader itself. nds-bootstrap is.
    TWLoader passes the ROM path to nds-bootstrap as an argument.

    Yes, TWLoader includes nds-bootstrap.
    Basically, TWLoader reboots into nds-bootstrap to run your selected game on the SD card.
