    Just wondering if anyone knows what these "DS Store" files would be used for.

    Firmware downloaded looks like this:

    SD root files
    SYSTEM (folder)
    _DS_MSHL

    Inside "SYSTEM" folder
    m3sakura (folder)
    ._.DS_Store
    .DS_Store
    g6dsload.1
    g6dsload.eng
    g6dsload.gb
    g6dsload.jp

    Inside "m3sakura" folder
    the two DS Store files appear again.

    Any ideas what they might be. I'm slightly concerned they may be malicious files (i.e. threat to console..bricking, etc)

    DS Store files are crap padding files... when you pack (or zip) files on a Macincrap it'll add those files for reference... you can just toss those files when unpacked.
