A flashcard is something that goes in the game card slot, and contains a microSD card slot. If you do not have a flashcard, you are done with this guide.

If you have an R4(i) Ultra #

    • You can safely ignore the warnings
  2. Open TWLMenu++ Settings
  3. Switch to the Misc settings page
  4. Turn on Slot-1 microSD access
  5. Exit TWLMenu++ Settings by pressing B button
    • If you end up in the DS Classic Menu, press B again

If you don’t have an R4(i) Ultra #

  1. Create a file or folder called primary in sd:/_nds/ (not the flashcard one), so that TWiLight Menu++ reads settings from the console’s SD card after it starts your flashcard
  2. Follow this guide starting from Autobooting TWiLight Menu++
  3. Copy the BOOT.NDS file from TWiLightMenu-Flashcard.7z to your flashcard’s microSD card root
  4. Open TWLMenu++ Settings
  5. Switch to the Misc settings page
  6. Turn on SCFG access in Slot-1 (Note that this option overrides SD access in Slot-1)
  7. Set Slot-1: Touch Mode to DSi mode
  8. Turn on Auto-start Slot-1
  9. Exit TWLMenu++ Settings by pressing B button
    • If you end up in the DS Classic Menu, launch your flashcard
    • Otherwise, restart TWiLight Menu++

Switching between SD and flashcard contents #

  • Press either SELECT+Up or SELECT+Down to switch between the SD and flashcard contents
    • If the SELECT menu is enabled, you can do so there as well
    • If you use the 3DS theme, touch the Game Card/SD Card icon
