    That's right, you can now have the R4Menu for any flash cart!
    Just download the following file, unzip it to your card and set it to your default firmware (this may be simple or difficult, depending on your card), I will
    not go into details about setting a homebrew file to you default firmware, you'll have to find that part out for yourself.

    R4Menu @ filetrip

    You will see that I have included a _system_ folder and one theme (downloaded from ndsthemes)
    There is also an R4Menu.ini as follows...
    Code:
    [Settings]
    gameMenu=/ysmenu.nds
    mediaMenu=/moonshell2.nds
    theme=1
    gamemenu is the location of your proper firmware, the file you want to load from the first icon
    mediamenu is the location of the file you want to load from the second icon
    theme is the theme number that r4menu will attempt to load. You can cycle through the themes by tapping Select while in the r4menu.
    the third icon will reset the ds into gba mode.
    Make sure you check and edit this file before running r4menu.nds, or you may not be able to run your menu or media application.

    And there you go.

    I actually don't see the point of this. Is it just to have the R4menu GUI on another flashcard? I mean, there are better looking flashcard menu's out there.

    I thought this is a modification fairywing's R4Menu for all cart...
    Well I would set gamemenu=/iniclear.nds.

    If you want it as default FW on DStwo rename to "DSGAME.nds" and backup the current DSGAME.nds somewhere, then just drag the new R4 nds file into _DStwo and the _system_ onto the root and lol at the ui

    I was going to say that. Although the only problem there, is that only the real dstwo.nds can load the gba emulator.

    [edit] Updated with load.bin externalized to _system_ folder to avoid GPL issues (thanks for reminding me Xenon).

    I were looking this kind of thing couple months ago actually [​IMG]
    Only thing I cant seem to get it working. I opened it from YSMenu first time to test it and it worked. When I renamed it to TTMENU.DAT it just shows text and box with black background [​IMG]

    Is it possible to use GBAexploader on GBA icon and touch click?
    EDIT: "DScovered aka DSision3, spinal_cord@..." nice header!

    No no.. I meant that it would boot GBAexploader instead of slot2 directly.
    I try that dldi patching. Havent done that before >_>

    This software + DScovered = EPIC!

    This is actually pretty awesome for those stuck with Actel 2i carts, that have had their retailers refuse to replace it.
