Wow. Cool to see it finally stickied. I'd also like to thank everyone who has contributed. Especially since I stopped updating it. It's really cool that you all have kept it going. I should really update the first post. It's pretty dated. Maybe I'll to that on my next day off.

The next version of DSOrganize (2.7) will have a web browser built in. At this point it's only text, but he plans on changing that in the future. You can check out a demo video

I finally updated the first post a bit. Nothing big, but at least it's a little more current. I'm too lazy to re-do the whole thing :p .

Yes, any app with DLDI support will run on it when patched with the proper driver for your cart.

Hey,

Ordered a DS Lite + R4, will DS Organize run on it?

Thanks.

I forgot to mention something. You should be aware of the fact that DS Organize (even the latest version) has a tendency to corrupt files and directories. Often requiring one to format their TF card. Use with caution and always have a current backup of your card on hand.

Anyone else using R4DS? I just got one for like ?20 and it works great! I'm looking for some decent skins... anyone know of any?

BTW, I haven't had time to mess around with it yet, but what is the last icon for on the main menu (I think this applies to both R4DS and M3 Simply devices aswell), I think it says Boot slot 2 or something? Is this for the GBA slot?

Most homebrew runs on the R4 to be honest, I haven't come across anything I use that needs a Slot-2 card yet, you just need to do something called a DLDI patch to the nds files sometimes. You do need a slot 2 for GBA games though if you're talking about backup images, I don't have a slot 2 though so someone else is best answering where to get one from.

I have an R4DS but what would be the best slot-2 device to run alongside my R4? And where could I buy one in the UK? I've heard good things about the M3 Lite... would that work with the R4DS? I'm not too knowledgeable about this DS homebrew business, but the R4DS works as a passme device?

I have an original DS btw.

The whole problem with the R4/M3 DS Simply was just temporary. Both cards came out at the end of 2006, and most of the homebrew hadn't been updated to this new DLDI system. Now most of them are updated, and the only one's that no longer function are the programs that were discontinued/no longer updated.

As for the limitations of Slot-1 solutions, the only real issues is a lack of GBA rom support. Also, discontinued GBA homebrew obviously wouldn't work with a DS card.

You can't fix it. MS must have changed something and it borked beup. The author needs to work on it.

Well... thanks. I hope the author will fix it soon. It looks promising :)

Just ordered a Supercard Lite to replace my aging 256MB G6 Flash cart. Hope it works as good as the G6, because I never had any NDS compatibility issues w/ the G6.
