Modded Nintendo DS

After waiting a couple weeks and taking a chance on an unknown Chinese source that ships from the United States, I ordered an R4 Revolution Micro SD adapter which allows me to play backup copies of games on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite also known as a ROM. Now, ROMs are perfectly legal […]
