    Please send any questions on how to use the freeware version to a Forum. Hoping that other users can help you.
    Non-technical bug reports, eg. "Princess Piggy can't fly in Level 3 of Animal Dreams IV", that information isn't useful to me, please go post it to a Forum or tell it to somebody else.
    Technical bug reports, eg. "no$gba crashes on MOV R0,R7 opcodes on ARM7 CPU in NDS mode", that would be very interesting, please let me know about that things per email!

    DSi emulation booting - finally (8 months work to get there)
    note: doing this on your computer will require several system files (which you probably don't have) (see DSi Emulation chapter in no$gba help for details)

    DSi mainboard signals, see more (the photos are from neimod and scanlime, and probing 0 ohm connections with a multimeter was done on my own mainboard). About as expected, that project has (almost) completely bricked the console: After probing the the SMD pins hundreds of times, the solder pads became deformed, producing shortcuts between pins. After reassembling the console and half-heartedly cleaning the solder pads, the first thing happening was blowing the battery fuse. After repairing the fuse and more cleaning it started working with nearly black screens, cleaning the backlight pins made it almost working, only the touchscreen and sound remained non-functional, and the tapping the power button caused white screens instead of doing a warmboot, which was apparently caused by dirt on one of the reset pins. Alltogether I've spent several hours on scratching the gaps between numerous SMD pins with a needle - and now everything seems to be back working.
    The whole pinout project did take maybe 80 hours, whereas I just want to connect some wires to the NAND pins. And then I ended up with: Why not making a component list before modding the PCB? And why not probing the pinouts of the ribbon cable connectors? And hey, why not spending six more days on probing the whole chipset pinout?
