Download WiFiMe - the wiFi passthough

From JaJa at DSLinux...

Although the page lacks instructions, this code, paired with the right wi-fi antenna will let you tell the DS to read code from the GBA slot (writable GBA cartridges are cheap and plentiful.)

This could be the development that opens the floodgates for all homebrew code on the DS. I don't have to tell you that.


Nintendo DS - Wireless Multiboot "PassMe" Hack - Version 1.0

(c) 2005 Tim Schuerewegen


This is an application that performs so-called wireless multiboot on
the Nintendo DS and starts homebrew code from the GBA cart/slot. It is
not possible to upload homebrew code because of the RSA signature check.


- Windows 2000 or XP
- Ralink RT2560 PCI or CardBus card
- Nintendo DS
- GBA cart and programmer
- One or more Nintendo DS homebrew games/demos/apps

How to use

1) Install custom RT2560 driver.
2) Put homebrew game/demo/app on GBA cart.
3) Run the wmb.exe application.
4) Accept download in "DS Download Play" on the DS.
5) Wait until download completes.
6) Enjoy homebrew game/demo/app.

Hello I have it running on my RaLink RT 2500 using 2650 driver. On my laptop! Using XP Pro on AMD64 (remember to make XP64 driver!)

XP installed it fine. It run fine to! Great work people!

However now I need to buy a writable GBA cartridge :p.

If we can do this... why can't we run other code wirelessly?

yeah, couldnt you just skip the gba flash card part and load straight from your computer?

Just from reading the documentation it's clear that you cannot broadcast homebrew code, but simply tell it to read from the GBA slot. As for loading the homebrew code directly, it's presently impossible, as the DS requires Download Play apps to present an RSA encrypted signature which is unknown.
