Nintendo DS Downloads

This is the DS Downloads Page. It's a mirror of every DS flashcart firmware and software file that I can get my hands on.
Because a large majority of these cards come from Asia, the servers the files are hosted on are slow, unreadable and unreliable for the rest of the world. My server is fast and it is always available.
I also keep a complete version archive, just in case anyone needs old versions and the developers' sites don't keep them.

Please read the guides in the Tutorials and Guides category to fix common problems, before contacting me.


The files hosted are simply firmware updates and their related PC software. No copyright, infringing or illegal information or software of any kind is contained.

If you'd like to support the site, you can add a linkback to the page. Even better, a donationto help the site stay running (at the bottom of the page). Anything is appreciated.

NOTE 14th-11-2010 As always I'm behind on a lot of R4 updates, I'm again working (slowly) away on some things to speed up the updates so one of these days I'll get to them.

Looking for nin_wifi_Fullpack.rar? You can get the package from the Essential Utilities category.

Javascript is required for optimal browsing of the files. If you do not have javascript enabled, click the link in the upper area to expand all categories, allowing you to browse the files.


Send me a message, ask me a question.

If asking for help, please be as descriptive as possible.
For instance, don't just say 'games don't work', tell me specifically what games, and what error message etc you are seeing. Also tell me exactly what card, and loader/firmware versions you have, if applicable. Thank you.
And remember to read the guides in the Tutorials category first (especially if you're asking about R4s).

I will not answer questions about where or how to download commercial games.
