    You don't edit the CIA. Also, it's the location (in reverse) AT 0x68, not the banner AT 0x68. And, the TID is only 4 characters.

    This is really nice. A bit cumbersome though. Would be nice if you made a tool to automate most of the process.

    Seconded, DSTWO is my go-to DS flashcart.

    @Bobesh8 Could you add DSTWO support? The DSTWO has an "autoload last used ROM" feature which could be used for this.

    Or maybe a easier guide to follow, It's a bit complicated for ppl like me who don't have much experience with hex

    Once I get this right I'll make a video guide. First need to know the whole "reverse" deal for the banner though. I got anything preceding that right now.

    I don't make PC tools. Also, unless if the DSTWO ROM (with Alex Rider Stormbreaker) is dumped, then no.

    From the MegaMan Zero Collection ROM: The banner icon location at 0x68 is 005E3400. In reverse, it's 00345E00.

    EDIT: Added to the OP.

    Ah I see you updated the post @Bobesh8. Understand that part now :)! One last question, does this part mean I should copy from 0x68 till 0x840 bytes further? (thus till 0x908)

    At the bottom: It should say "Length: 840" (NTR), or "Length: 23C0" (TWL).

    Copy the banner icon at 0x345E00, NOT 0x68.

    I just now ordered a R4i-SDHC RTS 3DS for this. I literally can't wait.

    EDIT: I don't actually need to wait for the Flashcart, do I? I can start making these launchers now and just can't use them until I get the cart.

    Ugh this again.
    Perhaps some custom code used in the launcher which writes the proper game to the last game data. It'd also have to write to turn on last set mode. Let's see where this goes, I might be able to do something with this...

    Right, though I haven't used the RTS version of the flashcard yet.

    I had a hard time finding the non-RTS for sale. If you know of a good place, PM me the direct product page link because I'm buying it literally for this, so having the right one is important. The RTS model says it can use YSMenu, is that enough?

    I don't know if the RTS version is also a TTDS-clone.

    Man, I hope so. Is it TTDS or DSTT? I'm only finding information out about DSTT.

    So uhm.. these are the steps I took. Excuse the small mistakes I made here and there, I used control+Z to undo those :P



    Alas, when trying to launch the icon from home screen it just straight up errors out.
    This is the card I use.
    I grabbed the DS card Whitelist from that iso site as 3DNUS does well... this.. when trying to download the whitelist (as in, glitching out massively)

    Files on msd in flashcard:

    If the steps are correct then I'm very much assuming that the R4i-SDHC RTS 3DS is NOT a TTDS clone because to be frank, the DS card doesn't even load (just black screens after a few flashes and a white screen) with this setup.
    That said however, booting YSMenu from the card while it is in WoodR4 does work.

    If this is true, that would be a HUGE bummer as I'd have to order a different card (luckily I know someone who will pay men for the one I did order cause they need one anyway). I'm going to make a launcher myself and see if anyone can test it out.

    EDIT: Apparently there's some samples already there. Care to try Metroid Prime Hunters or Super Mario 64 DS and see of those work? It'll let you know if it's your setup or the CIA's you made.

    You did all of the steps correctly! :) Now to fix the error, in the forwarder nds file, change the TID from B6ZE/EZ6B to A4ZE/EZ4A (from the whitelist).
