    How To Install (Also refer to the Working Cart List) :

    ALWAYS BACKUP your µSD to a backup folder on your PC BEFORE formatting!!!
    Format your µSD with the Panasonic SDFormatter
    Use these options to format : FORMAT TYPE : FULL (OverWrite). FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT : ON

    Extract the latest Multi Cart Update and open the folder for your particular cart and copy the contents to the root of your µSD
    Extract the latest DAT Update and copy new .dat files to your TTMenu folder on your µSD
    Note : Some CLONE carts use a different folder structure, so you may need to copy the DATs to a folder OTHER than TTMenu depending on your flashcart

    YSMenu Settings :

    Soft Reset: In game, Press L+R+X+Y+B+A
    Cheats: In YSMenu, Press Y on the game you want to use cheats on. Select the cheats you want, then press START to save and return to YSMenu
    Delete: In YSMenu, Press X to delete a file. (You'll need to edit the following line in YSMenu.ini to: NO_DEL=false)
    Screen Brightness: In YSMenu, touch top-left corner of bottom screen
    Scrolling: In YSMenu, press R to scroll down 1 page, press L to scroll up 1 page
    Save Type: All .sav are created by default as FLASH 512kb FF padded files, except for games listed in savlib.dat
    Skins: Both files must be in .bmp format, 256x192 in size & 24-bit depth 15-bit colour (YSMenu1.bmp for top, YSMenu2.bmp for bottom screen, placed in your TTMenu folder)
    Font Colour: To change the font colour, edit these values in YSMenu.ini :
    COLOR_PATH=0x801F
    COLOR_FILE=0xC210
    COLOR_FOLDER=0x8000
    COLOR_SELECT=0xDF7C
    COLOR_SELTEXT=0x8C0E
    COLOR_TEXT=0x801F

    Loading Error Codes :

    errcode=-4/-5/-6/-8
    Required loading data missing in infolib or kernel can't interpret ARM9
    Also caused by outdated ttpatch.dat/r4patch.dat/m3patch.dat (file depends on which cart you are using)
    errcode=-81/-82/-83
    Caused by fragmentation on your µSD. Backup µSD to PC, then Full format with the Panasonic SD Formatter to rectify
    Any other error codes during loading, please refer to your carts website

    Known Game/Kernel Bugs :

    DS to Wii connectivity for Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver : Connecting to Wii causes 2 white screens
    TTMenu : Sort games in Alphabetical Order (currently only sorts by Time)

    BUG Reporting :

    Before posting, please check the Game/Kernel Bugs section and make sure you have followed the formatting and installation guide above

    Well, welcome back Retrogamefan xD. Though I still probably have no need for the files (xD I'm hopefully getting a DSTWO soon), I'm sure tons of the silent GBATemp lurkers are grateful for your return.

    Welcome back retro, thank you for staying strong (I don't have a DSTT, but after what you've been through, someone has to thank you for doing your best.)

    If you can find YSM3 then it should work...though I feel that redistributing YSM3 goes against the will of BOTH the people who made it possible, but it is still out there somewhere I think.

    i love you, but i read that you needed a patched version of Last Window The Secret of Cape West in order for it to work.

    "The following games must be PATCHED to work on a DSTT :

    5213 - YLUP - Last Window The Secret of Cape West (E)(SUXXORS) PATCHED
    5233 - BJ3E - Etrian Odyssey III The Drowned City (U)(HADOUKEN) PATCHED"

    Does this mean that this wont work?
