    just wondering, i've been looking everywhere and it seem there's no app that can work like ndstool, extracting teh whole rom and re-pack it (i mean all, including arm9.bin, arm7.bin, overlay, etc).
    i'm looking for an app like this coz i had some problem with re-packing a game, tales of innocence to be exact.
    i've tried every version of ndstool i can get on the net, but no luck, the modified rom always freeze, hang just before the intro movie playing.
    never had this kind of problem with other rom.

    thankz in advance.

    note : dslazy and dsbuff are not the one i'm looking for, since those are just gui wrapper for ndstool.

    Some roms need the file id's to stay the same, ndstool doesnt handle this and neither do any other nds unpackers I've seen, you'll have to use nitroexplorer2 and insert the modified files one by one. Although i could be entirely wrong about this as i haven't done too much nds rom hacking lately.

    i've usually use nitroexplorer too, but the thing with nitro explorer is, i can't insert arm9.bin (and i need to replace this file)
    by the way, you said nitroexplorer 2, is there a new version, since i only had 1.2 and only find that version on the net

    edit : just found ver 2, but still in beta stage. i'll look into it, i hope it can deal with arm9 binary replacement
    thankz for the info

    another edit :
    nevemrind, finally got it to work, using latest ndstool. well, work in emulator at least, haven't tried on real ds
