LMP-ng is a music player for the Nintendo DS which looks just like Apple iPod of the extreme popularity according to the appearance; (for exclusive use of the music). It is compiled with DLDI libfat support.


  • Skinnable
  • Playlists .m3u


  1. Download and extract file
  2. Create folder name it "lmp-ng" on microsd
  3. Extract zip files to "lmp-ng" folder in microsd
  4. open "lmp-ng" folder in microsd and delete "lmp-ng-2-alpha.ds.gba"
  • Again do not add other files on "lmp-ng" folder, do not rename the folder and other files either. Putting the two versions of lmp-ng on the lmp-ng folder will mess things up.
  • In the end the microsd "lmp-ng" folder must have this inside:
folder named "skins" with two zips named alternative and default
lmp-ng-2-alpha.nds file
