Installation

This being DS homebrew, you’ll require a media card for your DS, and you will need to DLDI patch dslibris.nds for your DS media device.

Copy all files and folders in this distribution .zip to the root folder of your DS media (using a subfolder does not work).

Put any XHTML you have into the book folder. The filenames should have an .xht or .xhtml extension.

Run dslibris.nds on the DS.
