    Okay I was just wondering if I can view videos and music with the official firmware? If not which is the correct one?

    Thanks.

    Moonshell 1/2 is the only answer. It's a homebrew and you can find it in the downloads section. For just music you can use lmp-ng. (before someone comes in and says sakura they are basically the same)

    So that means I have to install Moonshell for media only and nothing else?

    Don't use the official firmware, just use AKAIO. It has lmp-ng built-in, but they're gonna take it out with the next version...Moonshell 2 is much better in every way. Check out the AKAIO wiki that's stickied in this board on how to install it.

    [​IMG] Yeah just install it and it will do all the multimedia stuff that's possible basically.

    @Da-Bomb1 Are you telling him how to install akaio? .... Man it's so straightforward I don't understand how much you actually have to think. Bye bye plugin system. [​IMG]

    Why would someone come in and say Sakura? Sakura is a firmware, Moonshell 2 is a media player which was based on Sakura. You can't say they are basically the same when they are two different things.

    @OP: Try using Moonshell 1 or 2, or lmp-ng. Though I don't use either because Sakura (which I use as a firmware) has it built in, your best choice would be to use Moonshell 2 for an overall media player. Though if you want to try out lmp-ng go ahead, it's a pretty great music player which looks just like an iPod.

    You have to use DPG, a special format for the DS. You can just use the converter that comes with moonshell 2...but you'll have to change the language to english first. I think you change that by editing the configuration file...

    Meh I only said it because I said only answer to multimedia playing PettingZoo. They both do play the same things (minus dsm) so yeah. Maybe I should have said I was only talking about multimedia.

    The tools that come with moonshell 2 works. [​IMG]

    I downloaded moonshell from http://www.acekard.com/download.php where it says "MoonShell for AK 2" and it didn't come with any formater.

    Go grab moonshell 2 from the downloads section then. It's better. Oh and that's moonshell 1.71 I believe.

    Yeah, just don't bring up Sakura when talking about what media player people should use because it can confuse them lol.

    Okay thanks guys it works now, but one more question. Why aren't the cheats working even though I just installed Akaio?

    Thanks.

    Did you press select after selecting cheats? It requires you to save the cheats.
