Well, the program is whatever you want to run. And unless your willing to risk your ds/dsl, then I would reccomend just using the superkey. Besides, you need a superkey to flash it.

I've explained this sooo many times... Someone do it for me!

The program is flashme.nds and you flash it by using a passme or superkey or something, and then run the flashme.nds program. You have to bridge the sl1 contacts which are behind the battery pack in order to flash it. Plug your DS in while you do this, because if your battery pack disconnects while its flashing it, your ds is toast. Also, I've heard that on a DS Lite, the contacts are harder to get to or something.

Here is a page about it.

EDIT: grammar :oops:

A contact directly on the battery.

To flash:

TIGHTLY wrap up some foil, to where it would fit in it, but not touching the sides. Now, you MUST wrap the foil in tape. (There are 3, yes I said 3 contacts in that hole) 1 is connected to the battery. You dont want to touch that. You want to touch the 2 half circles. Just put it in, and if the percentage is counting up, then LET IT! If its passed 50% then you can't brick it ACCIDENTLY. Once it gets to one hundred percent (100%), then your good.

Don't try flashing flashme_lite on the original ds's. It wont boot! (Well, it wouldn't on my old one)

To boot code, if your flashcard doesn't auto boot at start, then you will have to hold a+b+x+y.

And if your ds turns off before flashing is complete, then you have to hold certain buttons to failsafe it. (someone remind me) Then just reboot flashme and it will resume.

This is all from flawless memory.
