nds-bootstrap er et homebrew-program brugt at TWiLight Menu++ til at køre dumps af DS(i)-spilkort, DSiWare og DS-homebrew fra din Nintendo DSi/3DS konsols SD-kort.

Det kan også bruges på flashcarts men kompatibiliteten på dem er lavere, så det er primært tiltænkt flashcarts, der kun kan køre homebrew eller i forvejen har lav kompatibilitet.


For at se om et spil er kompatibelt med nds-bootstrap, kan du tjekke kompatibilitetslisten:

For bedst kompatibilitet med flashcarts, forslår vi at skaffe en "DS Memory Expansion Pak".

nds-bootstrap can use Action Replay cheats via a usrcheat.dat database, which needs to be in sd:/_nds/TWiLightMenu/extras. Once the database is there, you can select which cheats to use from a game's per-game settings menu in TWiLight Menu++.

DeadSkullzJr's cheat database is recommended as it's the largest and most up to date:

Alternatively, if you would like to make one yourself, you can use use R4CEE on a computer:

Keep in mind that nds-bootstrap's E-type cheat implementation is unstable and as a result, your code may or may not work. This is not a fault of the database, and we hope to get this issue fixed in nds-bootstrap soon.
