Please remember that this wiki is updated and maintained by YOU - Please help out where you can!

Firmware Original (its amazing what people keep :-)

V0.0.0 original firmware

This gives some real insights into what the later firmware is. You can see the private partions, fpga, usb  and launcher code all in seperate files. The updater is pre Delphi so is nice and small for the disassembler.

Firmware Release V1.0.2 (kindly donated)

V1.0.2 Launcher skin files
V1.0.2 USB/FPGA/Launcher firmware (added 2008-01-24, untested)
V1.0.2 Updater application info file (not available, donation needed)
V1.0.2 PC Updater application
V1.0.2 NDS Launcher - Dumped from DS memory using a backup tool.

Recovery Tool

Cypress Windows XP Drivers XP drivers for the USB Controller in the DSX cart, used with the recovery tool.
The recovery tool - This seems identical to the updater!

What Are All The Files For?

PC Updater application is the file you download from the DS-X site to update your card to the latest firmware. On running the updater, it downloads update.txt and update.bin from the DSX server.

Updater.txt is some sort of information file for the PC updater application, I'm not sure what all the values are about, some are obvious.

Updater.bin must contain the USB firmware, the FPGA configurations and the NDS launcher?

NDS Launcher is a dump from DS memory of the DSX launcher (version 1.0.02).

The recovery tool is what the DSX team give you to try and repair damaged carts.

Cypress Windows XP Drivers are used with the recovery tool.


The exact nature of Updater.txt and Update.bin will be published when the PC updater application has be full disassembled and examined.
