    Is there a homebrew .pdf viewer for the DS?
    There should be. Every other text document is .pdf these days.

    No, there isn't one. And not even the opera browser is going to include a pdf reader, so I assume it's quite power consuming.

    Google, for starters!

    It looks like shit, but I managed to read one PDF using google's translator with retawq, for example, but YMMV.

    There is a very good way to read pdf's on the DS. I do it daily as a matter of fact.

    What you will need:

    1. Pdf to Jpg Converter
    2. PictoDS (google me!)
    3. Comic Book DS (ahh surprise!)

    Place the .pdf file in the pdf-to-jpg converter.
    Then, either winrar or winzip all of the .jpg files in one compressed file.
    Name the file whatever the name of the pdf was or whatever u want to name it.
    Then, convert the .rar or .zip to a .cbds file with PictoDS.
    Drag the newly converted file into the cbds folder on your card where u installed comicbook ds.

    Voila!

    Pdf to Nds the Multiboy2k way!

    Just to enrich multiboy2k's post, i will add that you can also do the same with IPK files in case you use ImageViwer instead of ComicBookDS.
    You probably does, if you use a Sakura loaded M3 card, like me.

    Just convert the PDF into JPGs, and then, the JPGs into IPK file, and view it in your DS.
