I was thinking about getting the DS (mainly for possable Zelda games) and was wondering where I could go to find out what accomplishments have been made in the modding scene with it. Does anyone know of good sites?

I know that with 1 wire and a file you can make the DS play GBA games...

Also with 1 wire you can link the Antenna up to the chassis and increase the wireless range...

The official PC emulator used for developer debugging is floating around...

Also there is something called a Magic Key that can rip the rom files from DS cartrages and write them back to re-writable cartrages....

This is all stuff I've heard in passing so I'm not sure how well any of it works... beerchug.gif

I remember catching a news post (maybe on slash dot?) months and months ago. About how someone had leaked a pefect DS emulator (I remember seeing a few picutres of it running too).. Sorry I can't be of more help then that.

Anyone know any sites that have tut's for led modding or hardware/case modding? I picked up a IceCube case from Divineo.com and was wondering how to led mod it and what would be a good set up for underglow and sidevents

Also I have 3 Wavebirds I wanted to do them IR like the Wireless Xbox controllers and the DVD remote anyone know how?

The DS scene is a bit behind the PSP scene. But things are beginning to look a lot better. A homebrewn TCPIP stack is almost done for homebrew dev. A partial SDL port has also just been completed. Super Mario War was even ported with it. There are also a few emulators out, the best IMO beign ScummVM, with the touchscreen! smile.gif

All homebrew is run through a good ol GBA flashcart and a device dubbed "PassMe" wich redirects the DS game slot to the GBA slot tricking the device that it is playing an actual DS game. As for backups, some work, some don't. It's pretty much hit or miss from patching.
