so, I have a question. I know many of you are more knowledgeable on these things, but I wanted to ask anyway. since we have DSi homebrew working on 3ds, could a DSi homebrew such as YSMenu (Link: http://gamebrew.org/wiki/YSMenu ) be ported to 3ds running as DSi homebrew, to allow loading of retail DS games and backups? perhaps I could phrase that better, but what I'm trying to get across here is, YSMenu is a ROM loader of sorts, correct? couldn't we port this (or make a new one) to 3ds, to load NDS ROMS? since it would be running as DSi homebrew, the 3ds would be in DSimode before loading the ROM, so there would be no need (hopefully) to make it run in a normal 3ds mode, which, from what I can tell, is where everyone is running into issues. since the 3ds would be in DSi mode already, it could stay within DSi mode to load NDS roms, correct? I realize I'm babbling a bit, sorry for that, and I hope everyone can understand what I'm trying to say. I speak 6 languages, so sometimes, I have issues explaining things. [EDIT] I realize YSMenu is meant for flash cards, but it could be rebuilt (or fooled) into thinking a flash card is present, without a flash card being present whatsoever.
