@RocketRobz RocketRobz released this Oct 11, 2021

Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++:

Includes nds-bootstrap v0.49.1

What's new?

  • Limited Mode has been added to TWLMenu++ Settings, and allows TWiLight Menu++ to run in a DSiWarehax environment without the need for an exploited DSiWare/System app!
    • Recommended for testing purposes.
    • General setting replicates the usual DSiWare exploits, and Memory Pit setting replicates, well, the DSi Camera exploit (but has lower DSiWare compatibility).
  • If a DS(i) game's save size is lower than expected, it'll now be expanded to the expected size to prevent eventual data loss.

Bug fixes

  • (@lifehackerhansol) Fixed autoboot files for Ace3DS+, R4iLS, and Gateway Blue.
  • DSi binaries are now checked before showing Set as Donor ROM for DSi-Enhanced games.
    • Does not affect DS mode flashcard users.
