Known issues

The features that are a little buggy are the "HB Boot" and the "Mic Test" on the second page.

DSdiag will recognize all NoPass devices as "Motion Cards" when doing the "Motion Test".

Please make sure to have a "Motion Card/Pak/MK6-Motion" inserted while doing that test. Also, the "Rumble Test" might be broken. This is a bug with libnds.

Changelog

Version 2.1

  • Updated the loader code and released the source
