    no but if you have background themes they will be, if you just hit yes to everything, your nds roms and saves though wont be touched, and all your cheat codes will be turned off you just need to turn the ones you want back on.

    Replacing _DS_MENU.DAT will not affect your themes/skins.

    it's a compressed file.
    it means you can open it and find multiple other files in it.

    you need to open this file with a special software, such as Winrar ( download http://www.rarlabs.com )
    then extract the file _DS_MENU.DAT and put it on the TF card

    Yes. Exactly. Also, delete _DS_MENU.SYS. A new one will be created on the next boot-up.
