    First there was TWLoader (for 3DS/2DS users), and now there's...
    photoshop_psd (srloader).png

    This does what TWLoader does, loading ROMs from the SD card via nds-bootstrap!
    You can run them with clock speed of 133mhz (faster than normal DS).
    Also has theme changing, and it has an option, where you can run the last played DS ROM (ran via bootstrap) on SRLoader startup.

    Also includes (Super) GameBoy (Color) ROM loading via GameYob.


    NOTE: In this video, loading speed is slower than the current nds-bootstrap version.

    Download
    If you have a DSi, or a 3DS/2DS without CFW, you'll need a DSiWare exploit to run SRLoader.

    Compatible DSiWare exploits for nds-bootstrap
    They use GenericTWLPayload.
    • sudokuhax
    • fieldrunnerhax

    Instructions (DSi users/Non-CFW 3DS/2DS users)
    1. Extract the files/folders in the 7z file, to the DSi's SD Card root.
    2. Put .nds ROMs in "sdmc:/roms/nds/".
    3. You're good to go! Launch your exploted DSiWare game, and SRLoader will load!
    Instructions (3DS/2DS users)
    1. Extract the files/folders in the 7z file, to the 3DS' SD Card root.
    2. Put .nds ROMs in "sdmc:/roms/nds/".
    3. Install the SRLoader CIA.
    4. You're good to go! Launch SRLoader, and it will load!

    Controls
    • A: Launch game (via nds-bootstrap. Retail ROMs and DLDI homebrew will work.)
    • Y (X in v0.0.2 and lower): Launch game/app (bootstrap not used. Useful for DSi homebrew.)
    • Start: Settings
    • B: Return to DSi/3DS Menu
    DS/3DS theme
    • Up/Down: Select a game/app.
    • L: Switch between DS and (S)GB(C) ROMs.
    DSi Menu theme
    • Left/Right: Select a game/app.
    • Down: Switch between DS and (S)GB(C) ROMs.
    nds-bootstrap
    • L+R+DOWN+B: (3DS/2DS users only.) Return to the SRLoader menu.

    Please check this list:

    • Add cheat menu.

    Credits
    • @ahezard: nds-bootstrap
    • @Apache Thunder: DS menu top and bottom screen images.
    • @Joom: Original TWLoader logo.
    • me: For implementing the auto-reset power button function used in NTR-mode, volume button control, and LED functions, to nds-bootstrap.
    • @shutterbug2000: For the sound/touchscreen fix for nds-bootstrap, and the GB icon.
    • @nocash123: For the touchscreen mode switch log. Without it, the sound/touchscreen fix code wouldn't exist.
    • @spinal_cord: DSi4DS graphics.

    FAQs

    Q: Why isn't touch input working on sudokuhax?
    A: Depending on the save file of sudokuhax, the touch screen inputs may not work.

    Q: Can The Biggest Loser boot SRLoader?
    A: No. As The Biggest Loser is a Slot-1 game, and not a DSiWare game, SD access is disabled when running Slot-1 cards.

    Q: Does it work with a flashcard?
    A: No. A DSiWare game will not work on a flashcard either.

    Q: Why do I get a white screen when trying to load a game from SD Card?
    A1: If you're a DSi user, Please check the LED set in SRLoader settings.
    • WiFi/Camera: If it's on, that means it's loading from the ROM. If it's off for a while, and the screen is still white, that means the game is unsupported.
    • Power: If it's purple, that means it's loading from the ROM. If it's blue (or red) for a while, and the screen is still white, that means the game is unsupported.
    A2: If the game is listed as compatible, try loading the game again. SRLoader tends to crash before loading a .nds file for some reason.

    Q: Why is sound working incorrectly?
    A: For DSiWarehax users, the DSi BIOS is still being used in the arm7.
    You'll need RocketLauncher for sound to work properly.

    Q: I don't have Sudoku or another exploited DSiWare game. Will there be a new DSi exploit?
    A: Yes. It's for Flipnote Studio.
    Also, for FW 1.4, the exploit is RocketLauncher, which has been announced.
    No hardmod is need to install the exploit. Make sure you haven't deleted Flipnote Studio.
    The exploit needs fixing in order for it to be released soon.

    Congratz, i have dsi xl on latest fw with fieldrunners and sudoku installed, also have the biggest loser cartridge but unfortunately neither work for this. Hope there will be a way to hack from software only.

    The hardmod is pretty easy and who thought that you NEED biggest loser to read the cid when you just can use a laptop with a sd card reader.

    SRLoader has known compatibility issues with 4swordshax. Boot it from Sudokuhax instead.

    Well you'll need to install it then. You can do that by forging a ticket for it and manually installing the SRL/TMD onto NAND using fwtool to extract/inject nand.
