DS-Xtreme OpenSource Firmware Project

The scope of this article/project is to open up the DS-Xtreme flash cartridge firmware for homebrewers to modify.

I propose it takes the following steps to achieve that goal.

       01) Do some Under The Hood research on the DS-X hardware for an insight into what the firmware may be.
       02) Acquire all the files that make up the firmware.
       03) Disassemble the PC application that updates the firmware.
       04) Create a new, "OpenSource" firmware updater from the disassembled original updater application.
       05) Disassemble the firmware for the USB controller.
       06) Create a new, "OpenSource" firmware from the disassembled original USB Controller firmware.
       07) Disassemble the firmware for the FPGA.
       08) Create a new, "OpenSource" firmware from the disassembled original FPGA firmware.
       09) Disassemble any native NDS application (the launcher)
       10) Create a new, "OpenSource" launcher from the disassembled original launcher.
       11) Using the knowledge gained make some schematics of the DS-X cartridge.
