    I want to port a .nds trimmer to DS (DS side) so I'm looking for open source .nds trimmer in C. And yes I know what I'm doing.

    I am not aware of any open source trimmers but it is a simple header read (normally with an extra safety allowed) for safe trimming and old style/other consoles just trim until there are no more 00/FF (maybe keeping a few for safety).

    gbatek link for what it is worth (it is 4 bytes at 80 (hex)):

    going off topic.
    If you are considering such a tool perhaps consider a DLDI patcher (there already is one but hey) and maybe even a GBA rom patcher.
